We joke a lot on Massively about how there's a new MOBA released every day, but let's be fair: It's more like every other
day. The first MOBA I ever played was Demigod
, and that was back before the term had really become popular, before League of Legends
had launched, and long before the deluge of MOBA clones had hit us. I had fun, but I pretty much knew the genre wasn't for me. I like a bit more persistence to my PvP, and I really prefer larger-scale battles and worlds. This is why I play MMOs.
But the MOBA genre is young and evolving. Some MOBAs even seem to be trying to attract MMORPG players with cosmetic gear and first-person perspectives and even something that still looks a bit like personal housing
. So here's the question for today: Do you, as an MMORPG gamer, play MOBAs? What would it take to get you to play them?
