The community mod, aptly called “Dota 2 but League Heroes” reimagines 28 different LoL champions as their Dota counterparts. You’ve got Meepo as Teemo, Naga Siren as Nami, and Annie as Lina, and many more.
Popular LoL streamer Buba “RossBoomSocks” Corelli, gave the mod a go in a recent stream:
“All these characters (Annie, Veigar, Teemo, Nami, Tristana) look bizarrely better than they look in League,” exclaimed RossBoomSocks upon starting a Dota 2 game using the mod.
He also noticed that the height ratio of the LoL heroes does not really sit well with the towers and buildings of the game. Annie doesn’t even meet the height requirement for the animated portrait of Dota 2 as seen in this image.
This custom game mode, which is called “Dota 2 but League heroes,” lets players control League of Legends champions close to how their abilities would originally play.
However, they have to use Dota 2 items and work their way through the radiant and dire sides of the map. As a natural LoL player, RossBoomSocks described Blink Dagger as “basically a massive Flash (spell).” He also played with Dota items like using the Refresher Orb to summon two tanky Tibbers.
He also observed that using target abilities in Dota 2 is far more difficult compared to League.
Towards the end of the video, RossBoomSocks revealed that mods like these makes him feel sad. He thinks of the potential of League of Legends if only it had the creative freedom that Dota 2 players have with their custom lobbies and arcade modes like the one featured in his video.
