    Who knows what MOBA stands for:)?

    Also, what are some of the MOBAs that you have played?

    We may make this a new category in our game directory.

    you are wrong

    MOBA stands for Multiplayer online battle arena! And this genre came from DoTA who was pioneer in MOBA style games. After their development team split up in Riot and S2 games, HoN and LoL came to be, who are atm most popular and famous MOBA style games. Valve collected remaining members of former DoTA crew and atm they are making DoTA2 which will be presented on Gamescom and PAX.
    Other games of MOBA genre are, Realm of the Titans, Battle of the Immortals, and one more, but i can't remember it's name atm.

    Splashfighters and Lost Saga are 3D MMO's which dungeon system is kinda like MOBA style, but they don't fall into this category :)

    Can you list all of the games that you feel belong to this category? Surely there are more than just three or four:).

    He didn't say the DotA genre, and both Splashfighters and Lost Saga take place in Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas...

    The battles take place in one arena. That single letter hardly changes the meaning at all.

    Also, in MOBA games there is no WSAD controls, you control your char with point and click, so no shooters and that kinda stuff, if you ever played DoTA or LoL, or maybe HoN u'll understand. MOBA = DoTA :)

    People classify Monday night combat as a moba game
    MOBA is a genre definition for multi-player games where not only two parties struggle for resources or attack/defend, but each party/person is against all others in a confined space, therefore the term arena.

    Battle arenas in real terms had a pre-defined resource collection: Multiple entry points for opponents, and spread out in the arena, weapons and shields.

    Loosely defined, one can see it as a mixture of RTS/RPG and Free-for-all deathmatch, the emphasis is in some games on the former part (DoTA-type games) and in others on the latter (Monday Night Combat).

    your not always right >.>

    Was hoping MOBA was broader than DotA.

    Post approved. OgreMagi:).

    It makes sense. You said MOBA.
    I agree with Jared and Ogreman on this one.

    MOBA is actually evolved DoTA, but you are free to think what ever you want, players really decide what genre is the game they play not developers :)
