There is a reason why i prefer LoL over HoN is a few reasons.
LoL has new mechanics in the game which makes it more interesting IMO.
At first when i swapped (not really, i still play DotA), I honestly fucking hated it.
Mainly because I was not use to the mechanics with summoner level system, runes, brushes, summoner skills, no creep deny, etc. This is a big reason why I do not really consider LoL as a clone, and I believe because of these add ons people who are from DotA are not really attracted to it, and prefer the old style of playing because of whole new mechanics you must learn to play the game successfully. After you get use to it, and actually spend time learning it, it is actually a fun game to play.
People say LoL's graphics sucks. Okay. I honestly agree HoN graphics are better, but
graphics =/= game play.
And about the release of DotA 2 impacting the LoL community.
I honestly will say I don't think it will hurt THAT much to Riot.
With the unique play on LoL, I say its another genre of MOBA in general, and people will stay.

I never get the "DotA is so much more skilled than LoL" argument... all they did was remove creep denying and simplify the jungle (the Jungle in LoL is really cool imo, with the Blue and Red buffs). Apart from creep denying it has everything else tactical and strategic in DotA except town portal scrolls (but replaces it with a free recall system, which I prefer tbh).
The bushes/brush is a really great addition to the genre and I definitely wouldn't mind at all if Dota 2 tried new features like this. So many people are like 'OMG WE CAN'T CHANGE ANYTHING!!! NOT EVEN THE NAMES!!!!' or saying that skins would be a bad idea. Pffft, it's ridiculous. Riot have added good things to the genre and that's why LoL stands out over HoN.
I don't get the hating on graphics, on full settings it looks great... although a bit too much visual clutter if you ask me.
The reason I'd switch to Dota 2 is because Valve are incredible. The polish this game will have, and the style... oh man it's gonna rule. The thing I'm most excited about is the inclusion of inter-hero conversations during the game! That's gonna be so cool haha. Riot are also complete and utter fail with their servers and customer service. All the new champions they introduce are starting to blend together too (tanky DPS every other champion, no fun tanks etc.).
