1. Laning phase

1.1. No denying

1.1.1. increased focus on player interaction

1.1.1.1. since there is no option to deny, the only way to win lane is to out-cs opponent in best risk-reward ratio or to make plays via PvP interaction

1.2. Varying forms/levels of denying

1.2.1. less punishing in the sense that gold is not lost upon death

1.2.1.1. pro for LoL so that a minor mistake early on isn't the sole cause for a loss depending on coordination on both teams

1.2.1.1.1. allows for constant plays where both teams most consistently outplay each other as opposed to a hard-snowball effect

1.2.1.2. con for LoL because less punishing = noob friendly which isn't desired by "hardcore players"

1.2.2. DotA and LoL can force punishes through outplaying by denial of experience

1.3. LoL has a predictable laning setup: 1-1-2/Jungler which has become the standard and not much room for creativity

1.4. Denying (DotA)

1.4.1. Denying allows the user to avoid interaction via shutting out their farm

1.4.2. With the introduction of denying, what reason is there to risk gaining a lead?

1.4.3. Allows for more factors in a laning phase, which makes the laning phase more entertaining to some

1.4.4. More factors = more options = more playstyles?

2. Carries

2.1. In LoL there isn't a genuine hyper carry, giving reason to strategize around team fights and skirmishes.
