MOBA Monday: An Expanding Genre

Once upon a time, the term MOBA did not exist in the gaming world. The first MOBA to develop a cult following of sorts was Defense of the Ancients (DotA).

Technically speaking, DotA was nothing more than a custom map you could play on the Warcraft III game. One could even go as far as to say it was a “mini-game,” but an amazingly complex one that impacted gaming history forever. Yes, we are talking about a custom map here, after all.

DotA grew in popularity to the point where many purchases of the Warcraft III Battle Chest occurred just so people could play it. There was nothing like it anywhere else in the gaming market back in the day. It was one-of-a-kind. To say DotA, let alone the entire MOBA genre up to this point, was niche would be an understatement.

Like I wrote the other day, I have been playing a lot of Dota 2 as of late and having a blast. It’s been a really good experience, overall anyway, with trying to get back into the game.

As I was transitioning over into Dota 2 from League of Legends, I found myself really taking a quick liking to Lanaya, the Templar Assassin, and her style of play. She plays a lot like a ninja, and who doesn’t like a cool ninja girl?

I would go as far as to call Lanaya my favorite hero in Dota 2 at this point. Heck, I have been plastering Lanaya pictures all over my various blogs and stuff.

First off, many apologies for the posting hiatus. I think it’s been too long that I have written a proper post on this blog. This blog of mine is in fact very important to me, so I would like to pick up where I last left off before a few months back.

What can I say? Life happens. You learn. Things force you to rethink everything. You don’t reshape yourself overnight. It takes time. Lots and lots of time, unfortunately.

Anyway, back to posting. Expect more consistency from me from here on out. This is a promise. Continue reading

For a long while, I have had to do a bit of soul-searching as a gamer. Games are supposed to be fun, right? Games should bring you entertainment and all that jazz … However, my “main” game for the past four years, League of Legends, became anything but that at a certain point.

The moment I found myself being more agitated, stressed and even infuriated by League, the more I came to accept that it was probably my No. 1 source of all the negative feelings a human being shouldn’t have to endure on a daily basis, at least when it came from something that should make me happy.

And boy, I certainly wasn’t happy with League on many given days. It was always one thing or another. No matter if I was trying to play a “just for fun” match or something more serious with the game, I kept finding a boatload of reasons and (often illogical) excuses to rage.

It got downright unhealthy and unpleasant. I will admit I relied on League heavily as an outlet for excess emotions, but I think League was definitely spawning more bad feelings than getting rid of them. The balance definitely wasn’t there.

After a while, I just told myself that I needed an actual break from League. I am not saying I am quitting it cold turkey at this point by any means, but this was a really tough decision for me as a gamer.
