For those who never saw the post, I'm responding to this post, by /u/strider751
People are... less hostile towards league than they used to be, but, generally, people who play it seem to feel a sense of superiority over league players, and I kinda wanted to show that a league player can do well in their game, and that getting good at league means you can be good at dota as well. Plenty of skills clearly translate.
In 299 ranked games and 321 normal games, I went from total noob to Divine 1, over the course of 4 months. I didn't have the time to play as many games a day as he did. I'd also assume he played quite a few normal games, to get to level 30, so I imagine the number of games played was similar.
These are my league accounts, linked to leagueofgraphs so you can see my peak rank in s9:
Here is my dotabuff:
Through my climb, I was frequently called a smurf or account buyer (depending on my performance that game), but especially considering I took it slower (adapted to patches) and played significantly more heroes than he did champions, as well as played a role that forces you to carry or lose, I'd say I showed that dota and league are both very hard games that have their differences.
Also, if I did it, I'd expect doublelift to be able to do it better than me anyway.
But yeah, if you're curious about anything, ask me whatever you want :)
