    Default "OMG, not another MOBA."

    It's retarded how people on MMORPG forums and Youtube comments are like, "not another MOBA." Yeah, imagine if we said that about every ****ing MMORPG, every racing game, every fighting game, every shooter game, every... are you getting the pattern here? All the same foundation, all the same structure, just different concepts and takes on the games genre, which potentially make them better!

    Look at how many WoW clones there are, and yet there are still games like RIFT which are doing very well!

    Just accept that MOBAs are one of the largest game genres in the world right now, and the market is entirely new. Why would gaming companies just sit back and say, "Eh, LoL and DOTA2 are making millions upon millions of dollars a year, but why make a game like that, lets just make another WoW clone."

    Anyone who has the confidence to be so ignorant to whine and say "not another MOBA", or "why are they making more MOBAs", was clearly depreciated of intelligence as a child. It's the same as saying, "why make money?", "why add more options to play for a brand new genre of game?", "why try to join in the largest growing game genres in the world?"

    You may not have the patience to learn the game in order to have fun, you may have never played and didn't like the look of it, and you may have played, perhaps enjoyed, and then decided it sucks (there are a lot of former Maple Story and Runescape fans here). That is all right! But stop these ignorant one line posts trying to stop video game developers who are trying to give us more options besides LoL or DOTA2. You might not like MOBAs just because of those two games! Why wouldn't you want more games in the genre which have a style of gameplay you enjoy!

    Just because it comes from the same foundation, the same structure, and has to follow the same bit of rules to be considered a MOBA, it does not mean it is the same game!

    But they do keep making games that follow the WoW style and the games that came before it. And we got sick of that and that's understandable so why not for MOBA's? There has been a lot of them and it kind of just feels like we are all just waiting on the next big style change wave (although I will say, Orcs Unchained looks fun as hell).

    Then again we get sick of everything. We got tired of Playerworld style games, 2D Side Scrollers, DFO clones, Action games, Diablo Style Games, RO Style Games, etc. We compare them all and complain, that's just how we do man and we've done it for years.

    Two Things about the "Another MOBA" Flames :

    1. Recently a lot of Moba Games came out like Bunnybabys. Most of them are just Garbage but the Creators just want to hop on the "itīs In" Train.

    2. Most Moba Communities are the pure Horror, mostly because that Genre is packed with younger People ( 10 - 16 Yrs) and we all know the Youth of today.

    I never liked Moba Games, i still dont know what the Letters stand for and i even dont care. I tried once LoL for about a half Day and the Chat was full of Strong Words.

    Never again.

    Its not retarded at all, when developers just keep putting out new MOBAs that really dont innovate at all just same thing with different skin, i'd say it pretty much deserves "Not another MOBA" reaction. Now if its something new then i wouldn't say that, like cyphers online that is actually pretty fun and different. I dont want more chess games with different skin, i want more innovative chess games. Thats my opinion on the whole matter, and other than that.. who cares really just ignore. As Kashis said, same thing with WoW clones when there were tons of mmos just like it, this is no different.

    I've played Dawngate, Prime World, SMITE, League of Legends, DOTA2, and Strife; and none of them feel the same. Mostly because of the Champions. Sometimes I wish I could transfer some champions between games. Then the maps have differences, the items are very import parts of MOBAs and they're different. Even if they don't totally change up the play style of the game, they're different because of these changes which make you prefer some over others.

    What kind of innovation would you want in a MOBA?
    I for one don't like 3D MOBAs like SMITE, I prefer top down. I don't like carriers for items, or a lot of active items in game, so I don't like DOTA and Strife.

    This leaves me with Prime World, League of Legends, and Dawngate. I play Dawngate because their champion pool is amazing, I find them very fun and innovative. Prime World was actually a decent game because you could build your character outside of matches, however I didn't like the maps very much, or the imbalance that building characters outside the matches brought.

    So I can play League of Legends and Dawngate. Sometimes I'm sick of the popular picks in LoL and the extremely team oriented late game strategies. Sometimes I'm sick of the new BM players in Dawngate, or nerfs to champions or items which hurts my favourite picks. I would love to have another game to fall back on if I don't feel like these two.

    Because the competitive nature in MOBAs this allows you to grow in skill as a player, rather than your character just growing. I can't play League and DOTA2 at the same time because of the changes in controls being too different, so I would be unable to play at a high level at both, I'd need to focus on one, and not have the other one screw up my game tactics.

    The differences are outstanding, from little tweaks, to bigger pictures. These are different companies, different games, different tactics, different players, different champions, different items, different maps, different patches, different appeal, different style. They're different.

    What do you want innovated?

    I'm sure all the devs are looking for the next big idea. Cyphers Online might be one of those. I know LoL is very appealing to me because of the ranking system, LCS, and competitive following.

    What would you want to see, that is the question. This is a new genre and the growth is not slowing down. What do you want in your MOBA?

    Do you want to Break the Meta?
    Do you want to fight on the Battlegrounds of Gods?

    What is it, because honestly this genre is not leaving. So stop complaining and start gaming.
