Is LoL really more popular then dota?I would say yes. The same as Justin Bieber is more popular than Queen or Pink Floyd.
Just to bump the thread and get things going
Try tank + pusher. GG.
Vanguard + Bloodstone + Assault Curiass.
Valve has confirmed Dota 2 to be free-to-play, along with a a few additional changes and an early access package for $39.99.
Today we’re announcing that Dota 2 will be free to play, and contain an in-game store where you’ll be able to buy fancy gear to customize your heroes. From the forum threads we’ve read over the months since The International, it’s pretty clear that this won’t come as much of a surprise to anyone out there. There are a variety of smaller details that we’ve decided to put together a FAQ to help with, but we wanted to address the two most common concerns right away:

Nice. We don't need two good PC devs hacking at each other.
Also, Blizzard All Stars = BALLS

Blizzard has dropped a short-and-sweet press release (reprinted below) informing us that it has landed on a "mutual agreement" with Valve regarding the contested "DOTA" trademark. DOTA, of course, stands for "Defense of the Ancients," which is a fanmade map and mode for Blizzard's Warcraft 3, originally based on a Starcraft map. Developer "IceFrog," who's overseen the DOTA map since 2005, has gone to work for Valve on DOTA 2, while Blizzard has been working on its official variation of the game, previously called Blizzard DOTA.
The mutual agreement means that Valve will get the rights to use the "DOTA" trademark commercially, so DOTA 2's name won't change. Blizzard reserves the right for fans to use the trademark noncommercially, but will give up the DOTA name for its official variant. That game will instead be called Blizzard All-Stars, "which ultimately better reflects the design of our game," said Blizzard executive VP Rob Pardo. "We look forward to going into more detail on that at a later date."
Valve's Gabe Newell also gave comment, saying that Valve is "pleased that we could come to an agreement with Blizzard without drawing things out in a way that would benefit no one." Blizzard All-Stars doesn't have a release date yet, and DOTA 2 is due out next year.

To be able to download a F2P game on steam, you have to have bought or own a game on steam, menaing you have to have spent money that benefits valve to be able to download a f2p title.False. I'm sure I had at least 3 f2p games on steam before I bought anything (TMNF, Spiral Knightst and RoI).

Before getting a beta key I had never used steam; in fact i'd never realyl heard of it. Now I have steam and have purchased around $80 worth of games including on Other valve titles (Portal1/2). Thats the real business beauty of the steam/F2P model that people forget about. Valve basically made money directly because of Dota 2 even though I didnt pay for Dota 2 itself.You know what, I agree 100%. I had a steam account for a while, but only started using it regularly after Dota 2. And so far, I myself have spent quite a bit of money picking up cheap games I normally wouldnt have done.

What i feel is,
The basic AP game with all (or a limited number) of heroes will be free to play. So you can download the game and play it with your buddies fro free.
However, for other features, you have to pay. Such as matchmaking, game modes, heroes, hats, skins, alt avatars, taunt etc. This is very similar to HoN/LoL.
The 'twist' will be a rating system (commendations anyone?) which allows users to unlock those for free or a lower price by providing some criteria to be achieved (eg: +20 leadership will give you 20% discount on a certain feature).
