LoL actually snowballs harder than Dota 2 due to everything scaling into the late game and the fact that stat per gold ratio in LoL goes up as item tier increases.
Feed Queen of Pain 4 kills in mid and her abilities won't hit any harder, but feed 4 kills to a mid in LoL they will come back hitting harder, faster, and more frequently due to ability scaling, cool down reduction, and armor/magic penetration.
Also, gold loss is actually an anti-snowball mechanic. Is that carry getting a little too much farm? That's fine, gank them several times and they will lose their farm.
