Today we’re announcing that Dota 2 will be free to play, Dota 2 will not be a pay-to-win game. All the items in the store are cosmetic, and don’t affect gameplay.
XD All of the heroes will be available free of charge. XD We believe restricting player access to heroes could be destructive to game design, so it’s something we plan to avoid.

Dota’s always been a game where the community has had an extremely active role in driving it forward, from the huge amount of feedback that Icefrog receives to the number of suggestions posted in the hero ideas forums. We wanted to make sure that Dota 2 expands on that community interaction even further, to the point where players can directly contribute to the game itself.

So today we’re also announcing that Dota 2 is now part of the Steam Workshop. If you’re not familiar with the Steam Workshop, it’s a place where fans can upload content they’ve created for a game, and other players can vote and comment on it. The development team then takes those uploads and releases them as official parts of the game itself, and the original fan creator gets a slice of the sales from the in-game store. In the first year alone over 3.5 million dollars was paid out to TF2 fans who’s creations are now a permanent part of the game.

If you’re a Dota 2 fan with some artistic skills, here’s your chance to get in on the ground floor of what’s sure to be a vibrant community for years to come, and be able to contribute directly to the game you’re already playing non-stop. If you’re still working on your art skills, you can still contribute massively by looking over the submissions as they arrive, and giving the thumbs up to ones that you’d like to see in your games.

The only reason they are doing this is because there was currently no reason to choose this game over LoL because they are essentially the same thing. Good to see more F2P games though, can never get enough of free games :)

DOTA is extremely different from LoL and a TON harder.

LoL is Dota with a lot of it's mechanics removed and stripped down.
I like how this kinds goes a bit in-depth on it:
