Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) is possibly the most popular genre in the world of PC games. Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is another great MOBA optimized for touch screen devices that brings all of the great aspects of the genre in reach of players who don’t have access to a PC. The game is essentially a ripoff of League of Legends, featuring champions and abilities that look a whole lot like the ones found in LoL, albeit mixed up to avoid copyright issues, I presume.
Besides that, the players can also find interesting mechanics such as extensive crafting and equipment modification system that allows them to not only produce items and upgrade them but also to transfer special attributes of certain items. Tencent’s success in the MOBA genre has helped the company become the top video game company by revenue in the world today.
There are about 130 playable champions with several game modes and maps that help in keeping the game exciting and fresh year-on-year. Some MOBA maps include areas where players can hide in stealth, or mountsâ€ that let them abandon attack and defense for swift movement.
And since each map demands a different play style, the battleground selection process is an important part of the professional metagame. No matter what users, fans, or critics say, League of Legends will continue to top any list of Most Played MOBAs for years to come.
Epic Games Closes Its MOBA Title Paragon, But Opens Up Its Assets
Where other genres have failed, MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas) are succeeding in attracting millions of depth-seeking, not-so-casual strategy gamers who have traditionally been neglected on iOS and Android. Dota was released in 2003 by designers Eul , Steve Feak , and IceFrog Two teams, dubbed the Sentinel and the other the Scourge, must vie for control of the map and destroy the other team’s aforementioned Ancient. When I first heard about the MOBA genre and viewed a few games of it being played, I was extremely confused why it was so popular.
This initially led out a backlash of flaming between the two communities, the DotA fanbase calling League players as the “new age spoiled MOBA players who dumbed down the original game mechanics” while League players calling the DotA player base “an archaic rough diamond that’s deeply rooted into its archaic anti-fun game mechanics”.
Heroes of the Storm is free-to-play, and while Blizzard has kept a tight lid on official player numbers, the game is typically in the top 50 most watched on Twitch. Some of these games have competitions that play out on the international stage and attract millions of spectators to events that can be viewed live at major sporting arenas, or online at sites like Amazon’s video game streaming service, Twitch.
