While I used to play Warcraft 3's DOTA back in the day, I haven't actually played a MOBA (or really wanted to) since the genre rose to prominence. I figure I'll give it a shot again but I don't know where to start....

Which MOBA should I pick up?
#2nurnbergPosted 1/23/2014 5:56:49 AM
Dota 2

If you want an easy to pick up and play one Smite is pretty good.

I personally like DOTA2 best, but it is a matter of preference.

If you did like DOTA, then perhaps DOTA2 would be the logical choice, since so much of the design of that game carried over to the sequel. You can even continue playing your favorite heroes.

dota 2 since it's not hidden behind either a paywall or an extreme time investment in order to access its full cast.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Yeah, much better than League of Legends

I prefer LoL, but Dota 2 puts a lot more effort into teaching new players. Smite is fun, also, though it is a bit different than the other two.
