Greetings!
So as a part of school I have to make a scientific essay.
I chose Moba's as the subject, more specifically why Moba's have literarily explode in popularity over the recent years. group

So as the title states I want you guys and girls to be my control group!

I will ask you a simple question: Why do you enjoy playing Moba's?
There are no wrong answers, noting is to small, nothing is to big. It could be as simple as "I just like powning nubz". I would also like it if you state what Moba's you have played and are playing.

Optional: While not required, I would appreciate it if you stated your age, gender and country as a point of reference. Don't be shy, I will not judge you. However please DO NOT state an other personal information like your real name. If you harass somebody because of there age, gender or country I will personally make sure that a moderator removes your post, no exceptions. Play nice people.

Disclaimer: By responding to this post you acknowledge that your respond might be quoted, so don't post anything you don't want me to quote you on. Also I own your soul now!

Thank you in advance for your contribution!

I enjoy playing MOBA's because each match you play is unique, the combat isn't too easy but isn't too complicated either and it's online :3

First off: it's MOBAs, not Moba's. It's plural of an abbreviation, meaning large letters with a small "s" after, to indicate plurality.
To answer the question: I don't. At least not this kind because of its tendency to breed toxicity.

I was just debating with myself if it was spelled Moba or MOBA, thank you for clearing that up for me!

You're kinda overreacting with your disclaimer, we're usually much subtler when we're being royal ***es to each other. Classy *****es if you may.


As for your original question: Of all MOBAs, I only play League of Legends and never really tried anything else. I enjoy the player interaction, the intensity, the character variation and how it tests different capabilities like decision making, awareness (map, cooldowns, objectives), reflexes, tempo and the ability to read your opposition.

I just wanted to point out that this is more of a sampling then a control group.
Oh well to late to change the title now.

I just wanted to make sure that nobody feels like they will get laughed at for stating some of there personal information. The disclaimer was just there because my teacher is very strict that you make sure that you let people know that what they say/type will be quoted. It also makes people think more about what they are going to say, which I always good.

I'm far from a MOBA pro but I've played Dota, Dota 2, Smite, Dawn Gate and League of Legends. MOBAs catch my attention because of the depth within a 30-60min match. Our main goal is to destroy the enemy's nexus right? Well in order to get there we must destroy their turrets, and in order to do that, we need to get past the enemy champions and hell, even before that we need to farm up our CS to get the gold to grow. I could go on about the items we need to buy with the gold and the champions we choose to counter the enemy team, but tbh, I'm far from qualified to ramble about that. xD
