Even though they’re still a bit unknown to the general public, the last five years have seen the MOBA craze sweep the entire competitive gaming scene, building eSports from a niche, underground scene to receiving coverage on ESPN and awarding multi-million dollar cash prizes at the top conferences for both League of Legends and DotA 2. Since the rise of both titles in the late 2000s and early 2010s, dozens of different MOBAs have arrived on the scene, on PC, Mac, consoles, and even iOS and Android phones. 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.
If for some reason you want to know how much do I know about MOBA games, I am currently Diamond support in LoL, usually playing with my best friend who is a Diamond AD. I feel this is important to point out because this game really makes each Champion’s role shine, as I’ll explain later.

All that said, it’s also worth noting that some MOBA fans have complained about the inclusion of pay-to-win tactics, including real-money skins that give actual, tangible in-game advantage to players willing to pay for it. Overall, Mobile Legends is a solid offering, but there are plenty of options on this list that might be worth your time—and very possible, money—over Moonton’s take on League of Legends.

The massive success of eSports has led to plenty of competition on PCs, but so far mobile games that are ready for professional competitive play have yet to really break through. Like other MOBA games, you have a variety of hero classes to choose from, each with their own strengths, maneuvers, and weaknesses, along with a whole bunch of enemy minions that continually appear for players to hide behind (if they’re allies) or easily defeat (if they’re not).
Additionally some MOBAs offer opportunities to gain extra experience and gold by “last hitting” enemy heroes, towers and creeps, as well preventing enemy players from gaining experience by “denying” kills (by killing a friendly unit before they can kill it).
Dota 2 has been criticized for having a steeper learning curve that League does, and my experience has been that the Mac client doesn’t run very well on systems that … Read More..
