    Dota 2 is much harder to play and master than LoL, this is probably the main reason why LoL it's so popular...it's easy to get started and average/hard to master.

    Either way, I've played Dota 2 a year ago and the game is great, you don't have to buy heroes, runes, pages, so it kinda removes the Pay buttom and focuses entirely on the gameplay. Let's just say MOBAs are not really my thing but I enjoyed playing a couple of games every now and then.

    Here's how I see it. LoL = New hero = OP
    DOTA 2 = New Hero = L2P

    I also think that DOTA's UI is more organize. The main tops on DOTA is that. You can use items on your allies, and denying.
    I lol'd when people say that DOTA 2 copied LoL. xD. I tried getting my friends into DOTA, but sadly they prefer LoL. I hope that probably in 1 or 2 years when the game is released they will join. I like LoL too, but after playing DOTA for so long. LoL just looks like garbage. Also ingame VOIP+Voice commands.

    The main issue is that LoL is very easy to learn, and people learned champions as they were being released. If you play Dota 2 and you never played Dota 1, first you have to learn about every single champion which is very hard and time consuming because there are very complex champions and different builds unlike in LoL where every champ pretty much has one "OP" commonly used build. A good example is Evoker, very hard champion to play.
    Then you have to learn what to buy and how/when to buy, which is also much harder to learn.

    The gameplay is also completely different, LoL is based on last hitting mobs for quite a few minutes (or half game) while in Dota 2 you have to last hit and deny enemy creeps/towers which requires much more skill. It's also more gank based and not so much last hitting in a passive way.

    That being said, Dota 2 is not newbie friendly and takes a lot of time to get started and i'd say years to master it unless you played Dota 1. In LoL however you can learn everything very fast and somewhat master the game in a few months at most.

    Smartcast can be activated through a custom script. Once you learn some console commands, there is a lot you can do with it.

    I don't really get why people use smart cast though, but everyone plays differently.

    I doubt it will be out of beta until they have ported over all heroes and created a good tutorial. The tutorial is a work in progress as seen by some of the game files, it's like a questing map which guides new players through it teaching them to play. This really is needed because of DOTA's learning curve.
