I watch both games and actually i prefer to watch Dota2 tournament instead of LoL. I don't know why but LoL tournaments kinda get boring over time.

If only competitive FPS was as big as this, I wish I was a bigger FPS player in the days of CS dominance.

During that part of my life, I only played Quake (every single one) because that was the only set of game my uncle had, and where I used to live, it was really hard to get legitimate copies of games.

Managed to get to Canada though, but home is where the heart is as always.

Even if some people make big noise about DOTA 2, LoL is still ahead.
I play both and LOL is more fluid and stable then DOTA 2.
Both good games tho. LoL just got the edge.
