NCSoft’s all-star arena combat game Master X Master (MXM) will shut down on January 31 after only seven months in operation. The developer says the game “failed to connect with players.” Recent in-game purchases will be refunded, and all content will be unlocked until the lights go out.
Last Sunday, as two top League of Legends teams battled in Boston’s TD Banknorth Garden in front of thousands of cheering fans, a stadium usher grumbled a complaint that a lot of first-time esports spectators mention. The pro players, whose facial expressions appeared in close-up on big screens all over the stadium,…
Launched today in Europe and North America, Master X Master (MXM) is an free-to-play PC action MOBA featuring WASD movement and a tag system that lets players bring their choice of two NCsoft all-star champions (Masters) into the arena at once, swapping them out on the fly.
It probably does, but that hasn’t stopped a federal court from taking a closer look at the question.
Genji has just joined the Heroes of the Storm roster, so let’s hope you wanted yet another Assassin type. With the addition of Genji comes the game’s first Overwatch-themed map, Hanamura. This is a two-lane payload map with a whole lot of beautiful cherry blossoms.
You never know where you might meet that special someone who makes you want to spend the rest of your life with them. For SadJetsFan and Venus1812, that place turned out to be a match in Heroes of the Storm.
Coming to Smite with the season four update, Such Cold Skadi is a premium skin that is bad and everyone who made it should feel bad.
Valve released notes on Dota 2's latest upcoming patch, 7.00, earlier today. The site originally crashed when the notes were first supposed to go live, but is now back up and running with full details on a list of extensive changes that will be coming to Valve’s free-to-play MOBA.
Multiplayer arena game Paragon has been in a weird place since it debuted last year. Harnessing the full power of the Unreal Engine, it looked like an action game, but played like a slow and plodding MOBA. Today’s Monolith update speeds things up a great deal.
By now, it’s become increasingly common knowledge that certain players like to race through video games to see who can complete them the fastest. A small niche of players even hold records for speedrunning MOBAs.
Battlerite is a good time. For a MOBA/Brawler, it is easy to pick up and filled with fun champions. Tomorrow, the roster will expand a little more during the game’s Halloween update.
The latest hero to join the roster of Epic Games’ PC and PS4 MOBA is Rayne, hero of vampire hack and slash action series BloodRayne, only here they call her The Countess and she has mostly black hair.
Heroes of the Storm’s weekly Heroes’ Brawl launched today, bringing a regular rotation of entertaining game variants to Blizzard’s MOBA. I played several rounds of the Punisher Arena mode earlier today, and while I’m not any better than last time I played, I didn’t care nearly as much.
Breakaway is a new game from Amazon that has been built from the ground-up to support Twitch (which, remember, Amazon owns) viewers and broadcasters. They call it a “4v4 mythological sport brawler”.
The great thing about bringing Overwatch characters into Heroes of the Storm is that their shooter skills are perfect for Blizzard’s MOBA. Zarya’s damage absorption and gravity manipulation skills make her a pink-haired point-and-click powerhouse.
When you replace traditional arenas for the depths of space and swap out colorful characters for massive capital ships manned by crews of 5,000, suddenly the term “MOBA” feels somehow inadequate. Yet that’s what Fractured Space is. A giant spaceship MOBA.
Smite, Hi-Rez Studios’ deity-based MOBA, is normally all about putting the hurt on a team of opposing players. In the special Xing Tian’s Mountain mode, launched this week as part of the 201 Odyssey event, players go on an MMO-style raid encounter. Weird, but good.
To be fair, I’m not 100 percent positive that The Fey, joining Epic Games’ action MOBA today to battle against laser commandos, bunnies in mech suits, killer robots and mutant beasts, is an actual princess. I am completely positive she seems a little out of place.
