In all my years of gaming, I've encountered very few genres that fail to strike a chord with me. From RPGs to shooters to racing games to digital card games, I've always found an entry point. Except for when it comes to MOBAs.
League of Legends and Dota 2 are probably the two most popular multiplayer online battle arenas on the planet. They attract not only tens of thousands of players every month, but countless viewers as well who tune in to watch players play ranked matches and watch teams compete against one another in multi-million dollar tournaments.
But for whatever reason, I've never been able to find the fun in MOBAs. They're incredibly deep, and most require a significant time commitment to not only learn the mechanics and memorize the matchups between characters, but to even play a game. Most League games last over 30 minutes, while Dota 2 matches often stretch to 45.
After a few tries, I quickly realized that the genre just wasn't for me. And then I downloaded Arena of Valor.
