So this is the second part of my series of articles about the 3 biggest game in the MOBA/Action RTS genre and I have to apologize for not writing it earlier but I had my hands full with studying for my finals.
For those who want to read part 1: http://my.mmosite.com/2728988/blog/item/dotadota2_lol_hon_part_1.html
So in part 1 I wrote about the games, like how their gameplay is and how the ingameshops are and I need to add that Valve has announced and released their "Cashshop".
