What is a MOBA?

This page explains what a MOBA game is. Read on to learn more about what defines a MOBA game, how it is played, basics, and more!

What is a MOBA?

Pokemon UNITE - Eldegoss, Charizard, Pikachu, Lucario, and Greninja

M.O.B.A. is an abbreviation for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. This is a subgenre of strategy games that is similar to RTS games or Real-Time Simulation games.

In these kinds of games, a player will only control one unit instead of controlling multiple units to compete with other players in premade maps or arenas.

MOBA Gameplay

The gameplay of a MOBA game is simple. Two teams of 3-5 players compete with each other in a premade map by completing objectives or by killing the enemy team.

Most MOBA games like Dota 2 and League of Legends require players to destroy the enemy's base to win, but some games also have different ways for the players to win the game.

    • Freind Code: 175N97G
      Looking for friends to get some Halloween Pumpkins, I playas Zeraora most of the time, but if not I play Cinderace. I am not very far, level 12 and great class 2. But I play almost every day and am aspiring an expert.

    • If I buy the battle pass but I don't have the Character that the costume comes for will I still keep the costume for that character until I buy the character?
