Top Ten MOBA Games

Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), also known as action real-time strategy (ARTS) or Hero Brawler, is a sub-genre of the real-time strategy (RTS) genre of video games, in which often two teams of players compete with each other in discrete games, with each player controlling a single character through an RTS-style interface.

The Top Ten

1 League of Legends League of Legends

Why I prefer League to Dota?
- It has a fun atmosphere, while Dota is very gloomy, dark and serious.
- League champions are modern and cool, Dota heroes are ancient and barbaric.
- This is personal experience, but I've found both communities equally bad (or good).
- More than one game mode.
- New champion every 4 months.
- URF, Poro, One for All, etc.
- Riot's music team is greatly underrated.
- LoL's YouTube Channel is beautiful. Gameplay videos, teasers, cinematics, music. It's all great.

I love Dota too, this is just why I like LoL better

Right now the most played online game. Great gameplay, amazing graphics. Breathtaking game mechanics

I love League because It always pumps my Adrenalin every time I play it. And I hate every time dota2 player says that they are more dominant than league, but still league stays humble and great.

The Best Game Ever

2 Smite Smite

This game is harder to get into than other mobas because it is genuinely a much harder game. However, it is also much more rewarding. You not only partake in a more intense and entertaining experience with greater gameplay depth, you learn about the mythology of other cultures to some degree and won't be flamed at by every single player you group with. Just tell them your new, listen to what they say, and try your best and you will gradually come to learn and love the best moba on the market. Many players from other mobas try the game looking for faults. They give up mainly because the game is too difficult for them. I will say straight up, if you are a passive gamer like many of them, your start in smite will be rough. If you want to be active or are willing to try to learn the game and actually do stuff in the game you play (how innovative), try smite. After that initial hump, it is honestly the best moba on the market.

Way better than league of legends

Not the best moba but it is a great game, I only play arena. But its very fun, but in my opinion laugh out loud is the best.

It's a MOBA so you know what to expect when it comes to gameplay. It's popular so you get short queues which is nice. It's 3rd person action combat with top notch animations and graphics. It being free to play means it carries a great variety of skins and voice packs (which is where they earn their money) and this variety shines a positive light on the game. It has 80+ gods to choose from with different play styles.
In it's genre (3rd person action moba) it is the best game out there and it is free.

3 Defense of the Ancients 2

This game is the most advanced game between all the moba games it has great graphics great map and the most importing the equality between the heroes unlike other moba games

Dota 2, or Defense of the Ancients 2, is the sequel to the originator of the MOBA Genre. Like all MOBA games, in Dota 2 you will control your hero along with 4 allies to take out the enemy team on the opposite end of the map. The graphics in Dota 2 are probably the best of the entire genre, with a great attention to detail in both the scenery and the sounds. The champions in Dota 2 are all very unique and none play like the next. - RockApex666

DotA 2 is basically a harder version and more improved of League. For me it's quite not as fun, but it definitely deserves number 1 or 2. - Chriskies

Every MOBA is based on Dota, so why don't you choose the direct successor, Dota 2?

4 Heroes of Newerth Heroes of Newerth

Heroes of Newerth is a quite popular free to play MOBA that is heavily inspired by the original DotA. HoN is extremely competitive and has one of the most community oriented players around. The best players have put in the hours and have learned to not only play each and every character, but how to use them in conjunction with their teammates. - RockApex666

5 Heroes of the Storm Heroes of the Storm

Great community, really fun heroes with unique abilities. More team based than the others, not so much flaming, not so addictive.

Heroes of the Storm is a brand new free to play MOBA game from Blizzard Entertainment. The game hopes to bring new meaning to the team brawling genre with your favorite Blizzard characters. With more than 20 years of Blizzard gaming history, settings and iconic characters, Heroes of the Storm will finally settle the score between who's stronger, Diablo or Kerrigan, Thrall or Tyrael! - RockApex666

Got better sense release

6 Vainglory

This game is good enough for pic and console, the graphics are great, and the game mechanics are really fun

One thing that vainglory has that every other moba lacks, is true stutter-stepping. Incredibly smooth!

Best MOBA out there for mobile platforms

This game is still growing so I am sure that someday, it will take lol's place as number 1 MOBA.

7 Bloodline Champions

I love the game, although I'm a bit biased as I was one of it's developers

Bloodline Champions offers a more simplified take on the classic MOBA game. In Bloodline Champions there is no leveling of characters and no equipment or loot. There are also no minions or creeps to distract you, just straight up battling between characters. Bloodline Champions is a great MOBA for begginers and veterens looking for a chance of pace. - RockApex666

8 Prime World Prime World

Prime World is a very unique Moba that makes it a fun game to play. The most interesting part of it is that there are a lot of building and getting resources involved like Starcraft. And then, you have the Moba game play that gives you the PvP aspect. - RockApex666

9 Infinite Crisis Infinite Crisis

I like the game but hate the company that creates it. It has promiss but Turbine is going to make it into another pay to win zinga gamme like lotro and ddo. it is really a shame they aloowed them to create it over someone else. they as a company are the most notorious for bugs and stuff. The game had potential to e the best of its kind but Turbine blew it

14 Dawngate

Dawngate will be focused on an incredibly rich lore with a very detailed environment. The game will be a unique play on a fantasy-themed MOBA game that is built from the ground up. The game will have a more natural, easy-to-learn progression along with a better interface and multiple objectives. - RockApex666

The only Moba that had more of a focus on story and created some of my favorite characters. I miss it so much... Hope to see something like it again

15 Deadbreed

Deadbreed is a brand new free to play MOBA game from an independent Swedish development team. Deadbreed hopes to bring a darker take on the MOBA genre with unprecedented hero customizeability and additional RPG gameplay elements not seen in today's MOBAs. - RockApex666

SmashMuck Champions is a free online arena game that seperates itself from many in the MOBA genre by offering a bit of a twist on traditional gameplay modes and settings. The characters in SmashMuck Champions are far from typical, they have dinosaurs, robots, dragons, blobs and lots of others. - RockApex666
