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

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

I think league of legends is the best moba

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

Best MOBA, never gets boring, not off of story its off of PVP, which is good because its all about self improvement, trying to be the best. none of this, better weapons the strongest, crap, very addictive. if you have never played this game and is reading this a highly recommend this game.

2 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.

I like smite

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

It’s way too better than others. You’re not a gamer if you don’t have skills to manage everything tactically!

4 Heroes of the Storm

Of all the MOBAs out there, HotS is amongst those with the most money and development put into it (since it's Blizzard). It's really fun, fast-paced, and has an exciting competitive scene. While many people consider it to be for filthy casuals, there is a lot of strategy and depth in it hidden behind a simple format. Easy to learn, hard to master.

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

It's a unique game of moba industry. I have great fun to play it. It is not being bored because of its amazing tactics and graphics.

Very polished, all your favorite blizzard heroes (almost), I've sunk many many hours into this game.

5 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


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

Very good game then other moba except PC 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 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

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

13 Paragon

The community is a serious issue, but once you get a certain level of skill and learn to be a good person (haha) this game becomes one if not the best MOBA, with a promising future, great gameplay, not hard to understand, and thought it's still a open beta, it's damn great and everyone should give it a try. Special now as of v42.

The game is amazing, the third person perspective really allowed the art team to shine because it's a beautiful game with really interesting heroes and great gameplay!

Best moba I've ever played

The greatest MOBA I ever played. All heroes are balanced. Every character have a different style of play. The 3D rigging is just amazingly beautiful. They add new champions every the week.

16 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

17 SmashMuck Champions

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

18 Defense of the Ancients

The game that popularized MOBA is 19th on this list. You wouldn't have LoL without Dota. - R3DJoe

20 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

22 Super Monday Night Combat

Super Monday Night Combat (SMNC) is a free to play MOBA game that utilises a third person shooter perspective. The game is one of the few MOBA shooters and has proven very successful amongst gamers.

Spilling the blood of your enemies has never been as fun as with the “The Godlike”. Assuming the role of one of the vain gods, you’ll control champions of your choosing along with an army of 3 squads. No longer will your hero be a sole warrior on the battlefield as his battle-hardened forces will always be at his side.

33 Royal League

MOBA with minion collection. Sounds like Clash Royale but still MOBA.

34 Heroes Evolved

Best MOBA game I play nowadays.
