The Difference Between Dota 2 and Mobile Legends: What to Play
If you are a hardcore Blizzard player then you would know that before DotA there was Warcraft. Warcraft was where it all started and deserves to be mentioned whenever DotA is discussed.
DotA which stands for Defense of the Ancients is one of the best multiplayer games to have ever been created by the gaming community. Its creator, Blizzard, has given the players a way to participate in the continuing story of the struggle between the factions in the Warcraft world.
DotA was so successful that they had to roll out a better version of the multiplayer game called Dota 2, which features more characters to choose from and better balance in their abilities that result into better gameplay.
Which is better between Dota 2 and Mobile Legends?
Before we answer this question, let us first explore the two games individually.
What is Dota 2?
DotA 2, created by Valve Corporation is basically a better and improved version of the first DotA game, which was a mod created by the community players of Warcraft. DotA 2 can be played on the major Operating system platforms Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Even though players report that it is hard to learn how to play well at the beginning, but once you are familiar with the game mechanics and character abilities the gameplay is among the most rewarding multiplayer games ever to have come across their screens.
Basically there will be 5 players for each team with each character having different strengths, abilities, and weaknesses. The power level for each team is basically the same and it depends on how good a strategy each team employs that will determine who wins or who loses the game.
What is Mobile Legends?
Mobile Legends on the other hand is basically an online multiplayer battle arena for mobile players. For those that do not know, there has been some chatter regarding the originality of the Mobile Legends game produced by Moonton, to be a ripoff of the RPG PC game League of Legends by Riot Games.
Regardless of the case, Mobile Legends has become arguably the most played multiplayer mobile game that has a Dota 2-like gameplay. (Dota 2 being well-known by a lot of gamers is part of the reason why League of Legends easily picked up.) The gameplay of Mobile Legends has a Dota 2 like feel except that the characters are different.
So which Game should you play?
Between DotA 2 and Mobile Legends, if you already know how to play one game, then migrating or playing to the other game will be easier. Although you still have to master a different set of character skills if you want to be good at it.
Even if both games have the same idea behind it, you play DotA 2 and Mobile Legends for different reasons. DotA 2 is meant to be played when you have a stable computer that you can use and a longer timeframe because the games basically last longer, while you want to play Mobile Legends when all you have is your mobile device and that you are on the go.
It really depends on your preference on which game you want to play, but both games have amazing features you can play with.
