Magic: the Gathering in the UK
Do any other LoL players expect/intend to switch?
I'm not sure. I will certainly give DOTA2 a go if I get in on the beta. I can't say I like the visual style of DOTA compared to LoL. I find the colours really bland, and having the champs and creep almost the same size is really awkward.
Also I'm obviously invested, both time and a little money, into LoL. I have plenty of friends on there now so if they all move then sure, I'll probably follow.
DOTA2 currently has no price structure set. It is likely they will go F2P to sate the Asian market (the vast majority of DotA was played on pirated copies of WC3), as well as following on the financial success of LoL and TF2, following on from . The beta is 100% free, for sure.
I personally would prefer DOTA2 to cost (because it saves me money in the long run not having to shell out to buy heroes), but it comes down to personal preference - some people really enjoy the unlocking aspect of LoL.

I have to pay for DOTA2. Pay. With money. My Money. LoL is free...
I understood that DOTA2 would likely not be free (though it seems I may have been wrong) you don't need to pay for Champions, skins are what makes the money, whilst you can buy champions it is silly to do so.
