    More easy, shared experience with the team and no items to shop during the gameplay. You just need to upgrade your talents. Uses gold only for skins, not power ups.

    The community is not that toxic as LoL's. Moremover, matches are thought to be play as a whole team and not as an individual

    Part of the fun in League is the concept of 'carrying' and being able to get leads on your opponents, as well as customizing your champions. Both features are reduced in HotS, less significant leads are possible (especially getting ahead of your own teammates), and less customization is possible without items.
