From what I saw in MOBA's all around, that kind of behaviour is commonplace everywhere.
It's also the reason I won't play them, unless I go in with a bunch of mates.

Originally posted by SirBalin many that just started this game came from Dota and LoL, they will quickly learn that this game is VERY different. For example. you don't constantly hold lanes here like in LoL. Not saying you don't in some maps...but you don't play this like you do those games.
You shouldn't be constantly holding lanes in LoL or Dota. There is a period, what we call a "laning" phase where you primarily stay in lane, but thats usually about 25% of the game at best. By mid and late game the only time you should be in lane is if you just did a teamfight and won, and should be pushing objectives, or if you're roaming for ganks, etc.
Hots is reasonably fun, but its so casualized its not even funny. They put extreme emphasis on map objectives vs killing other players. I've had games where we were 40+ kills vs the other team having 5 or 6, and we were behind on levels and XP because the other team was spending the entire time killing camps, etc.
The *only* reason i play this on occasion over dota is its generally at most a 30 minute time commitment, most games end around the 20-25 mark. In Dota 2 its usually 45 min or more.
