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. Even though the game was released in 2007, it still has a decent player base which makes it one among the top 10 steam games being played on a daily basis. However, the rising popularity of the genre means that many titles can now be played on other platforms, including mobile and consoles.
The games are generally well-made takes on making a console experience into a mobile game, and in 2012, they had done the same for the scene dominated by Dota 2 and League of Legends, creating Heroes of Order and Chaos out of the husk of their discontinued World of Warcraft-esque game, Order and Chaos Online.
Once everyone catches up to the players that first figure out what’s best, the play and flow of the game tends to be stale as everyone is using the same tactics, with the same set of ‘usable’ characters. Your participation will involve you thinking about your favourite MOBA game and completing a short online questionnaire with most responses made on a 5 point or 7 point scale (e.g., strongly disagree – strongly agree).
Unfortunately, things change, and Arena of Valor‘s similarities to League of Legends, along with its massive popularity worldwide, makes it an obvious winner when looking for a MOBA to play in your spare time or for something to pick up when you’re away from your actual computer.

Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) is possibly the most popular genre in the world of PC games. League of Legends , aka LoL aka League, was developed by Riot games for Windows and Mac in 2009 Defense of the Ancients, or DotA, directly inspired it. A feature I like from League is that every game takes place in its own match, meaning that players all start off on the same footing, leaving it up to the player to advance and get better skills and items.
The best MOBA games are great for eSports due to their co-op team-based mechanics and long playthroughs. Heroes of Newerth has struggled over the past few years with long queue times, poor server function and a declining player base. The foundations of PC as a gaming platform are currently systems of digital distribution of video games (Steam, Origin, Uplay) and MMO games that mostly work in f2p (free-to-play) model.
We had previously looked at Vainglory‘s gameplay back when the gameplay took place in a single lane with 3v3 matches, and we thought both the controls and graphics were solid, with an easy to learn interface and an intuitive design that put it a step above other MOBAs at the time.
