In terms of how it compares to League of Legends. Play DOTA. DOTA is a much more complex game that is great but more involved. I'm married and so LoL is perfect for me. DoTA2 = DoTA with updated graphics and technology updates.

LoL is the only MOBA I've ever played. What's different about DOTA? Just reading brief descriptions of the game, nothing's jumped out.

I don't really care to invest a ton of work into a game personally, so less involved is fine by me. I usually just play on breaks at work with coworkers, nothing too hardcore or serious. At most I'll go to mobafire and read a champion guide for one I like. LoL's Elo matchmaking seems to be really solid too, which is nice; it rarely feels like we massively outclass, or are massively outclassed by the other team. And LoL is free...
