I will argue that League of Legends is generally better than Overwatch. Con will argue otherwise
Round 1 - 4 (this is where the debating happens. You see there are rounds that happen and each round you must give an argument/counter-argument/opening statement/closing statement)
God bless this community


please follow rulez:
1). If you lose you must change your profile picture to any image THAT the winner desires.
2). No sources? No win. No assumptions either everything must be proven
3). I am Yasuo one trick with 970K points on Yasuo this isn't really a rule but I just wanted to point it out because it seemed important.
Here's a scripture from the bible. Read it while you ready up for this incredibly intense debate


Ezekial 23:19-20

Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth when she engaged in prostitution in the land of Egypt. She lusted after their genitals as large as those of donkeys, and their seminal emission was as strong as that of stallions.


And that was a scripture from the bible. Praise Jesus our Lord and Savior.


Introduction.

Hello. Enjoy and have fun and good luck and yeah

I will be arguing that League of Legends is not better than Overwatch. Even more, I will argue that Overwatch is better than League of Legends.

I look forward to this discussion.

My opponent provided no evidence for his case or argument in second round, so I'll take the liberty of presenting my case.

Video Games have one primary purpose, and that is to entertain. Therefore this is the biggest metric by which one should judge a game.

IGN gave League of Legends a 9.2/10 (1) while giving Overwatch a 9.4/10. (2) While this difference is slight, it is still relevant.

Metacritic gave LoL a critic score of 78/100 and a user score of 5.5/10. (3)
Metacritic gave Overwatch a critic score 91/100 and a user score of 6.8/10. (4)
This difference is much more significant.

Several other groups also reviewed the games. Overwatch was consistently reviewed as better. In regard to nominations and awards, Overwatch takes close to a dozen more. (5, 6) Overwatch was simply better received and better made overall. In almost every important aspect fans agree Overwatch comes out on top. (7)

I think the biggest reason this is true is because of time. A single game of overwatch generally takes over 35 minutes. (8) The winner can be decided by one bad teammate, such as a feeding support. If this happens, you must wait at the very least 20 minutes to forfeit the game. The vast majority of the time, however, teammates will not forfeit, causing lost games to go on for extreme durations. If you factor in the extremely long queue times and champion select, it begins to take almost an entire hour to play a single game of LoL. Overwatch has virtually no queue times, and a minute long champion select. It is impossible for a game of overwatch to go longer than about 10-15 minutes were defense to win. A single bad ally cannot ruin an entire game either, as the duration of the game is only extended when both teams are closely matched. If one team is drastically worse, then they will not extend the clock any further.

I think it's apparent that Overwatch is the superior game based upon user review. There are objective reasons, such as game time, which explain this phenomenon.

Played league for years, hoping to get overwatch end of this year, so not entirely acquainted with overwatch yet but this debate should give me some pointers as to whether it'll be worth the money. Looking forward to this debate!

I'd love to debate this with you if you were to lower the criteria. I've played league for years and overwatch since release.
