Imho the 3rd person shooter camera style is quite refreshing for the MOBA genre. But still, I can't help it but feel a bit angry about all these MOBA games that are starting to flood the market. Where were these companies when we only had poor old DoTA to play?
These days a new MOBA game is released every month or so and I wonder why... maybe because all these respectable gentlemen were waiting to see if the new model would be successfull and then jump in the market?
LoL is flawed, definitely, but it's a pioneer. First they proved that F2P games (browser games excluded) can be successfull financially and then they opened the way for massive esports events. Where was SMITE, DoTA 2 and the others back then? But ofcourse none would imagine that such a game could make serious money when u had WoW with its monthly fee etc (none except maybe Icefrog, cheers for him
Sry if I sound a bit harsh. It's not fanboyism: I saw the same thing happen after WoW hit 10 mil players or earlier when CS was keeping us awake all night. I just like pioneers and inovators (cheers Anet). Give me something rlly fresh and new not an enhanced version of an already tested formula.
Imho ofc and always so I dodge any possible flaming
