Dota 2, the iconic multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game developed by Valve has built a loyal fanbase over the years. In the world of MOBAs, there has always been a rivalry between different games, and one of the main contenders alongside Dota 2 is League of Legends. These two games are often compared by fans, and there is even some historical connection, as some of the initial developers involved in Dota reportedly moved to work on League of Legends. Recently, popular Twitch streamer Félix "xQc" Lengyel, known for his entertaining streams, shared his thoughts on both games during one of his broadcasts.

xQc says Dota 2 has soul

During a recent Dota 2 stream, xQc expressed his admiration for the game and stated that the game has ‘soul’. He compared Dota 2 to Riot Games' Titles, suggesting that the latter lacks the ‘soul’ that Dota 2 possesses.

“This game (Dota 2) has a soul. You know I like Riot Games and I like their games but their games are soulless. They have no juice, they have no direction, it just exists, you know? Yeah I know there are lesser people who play this game but look, it's kinda nice (referring to the in-game graphics of the game),” xQc said.

Streamers Returning to Dota 2 After the Massive Patch

In addition to xQc, other popular variety streamers have also made a return to Dota 2 following the release of the massive patch. Among them is popular streamer Hans Eli Sebastian “Forsen” Fors, who has previously played the game and returned for a short while after patch 7.33 was released. The return of influential streamers to Dota 2 can have a positive impact on the game's popularity, as their streams serve as a form of advertisement, attracting more viewers and potential players to experience the revamped Dota 2.

xQc's statement that Dota 2 possesses a soul and his comparison to League of Legends sparks discussions among fans of both games. The return of streamers like Forsen to Dota 2 after the recent patch contributes to the game's exposure and showcases its new features to a broader audience. The ongoing rivalry and debates between Dota 2 and League of Legends can be positive for both games, as it can promote the growth of both games.
