Where other genres have failed, MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas) are succeeding in attracting millions of depth-seeking, not-so-casual strategy gamers who have traditionally been neglected on iOS and Android. Before we can break down the different games and their quirks, there are a few (tons of) terms used within MOBAs to explain everything going on. For sake of ease, we’ll mostly look at the terms used in League of Legends and Dota 2. As the largest of the MOBAs, most other games took the concepts and lingo from these two juggernauts, so the terms are transferrable.
I was a big fan of the first Monday Night Combat, so the return to this quirky setting with its raucous and over the top clone players was a welcome one. To describe the gameplay one could basically say it is an insane mashup of Super Mario meets DotA, with three lanes to be pushed and defended.
Heroes of Newerth could be accurately described as an old game on its way out. Players alternate each other by playing cards from their hand: they can be Hero cards for your Laner, Common Gank cards or Hero cards of character that are Roaming for this round.

First released for iOS in 2014 and later released for Android in 2015, Vainglory is the most popular MOBA video game across all mobile operating systems. Players fight each other to gain experience and to win gold, which they can use to buy items to strengthen their champions.

Unlike other MOBAs, Heroes of the Storm features a panoply of dynamic Battlegrounds, each with unique quests and objectives. The objective is to use teamwork to go against the opposing force and eventually destroy the other team’s baseâ€, said Wei Zhen, a professional League of Legends player.
While the typical Starcraft game rewarded players with minerals only after they’d mined the resources with a building, Aeon of Strife rewarded minerals for killing AI-controlled characters. Gameplay consists of two teams of five battling it out with the goal of destroying the enemy’s Ancient.
The game is completely free to play – however – it offers a battle pass separately – if you want extra features and rewards, which is optional but it’s still something exciting if you are love to play Dota. Dota’s weird, so I won’t be covering that mess, but this will apply to standard games.
