What is Moba

Moba is a relatively new ganre in video games. It measn Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. The first ever moba game (in the way we see them before) was actually not even a game on its own. It was a custom map, created for Blizard's Warcraft 3 by a fan. The name of the map is Defence of the Ancient, and the guy who made it famous is known by the name of IceFrog.

Rules

In each match the players join a team and then have to pick an avatar, reffered to as "a hero", from a hero pool. Once every player has chosen a hero, the teams are situated on a large map. Their goal is to destroy the enemy base structure by fighting the enemy creeps, defensive structures and the enemy players. (The creeps - a.k.a. mobs - are computer-controlled units who follow specific patterns in their behaviour.) Once one of the base structures is destroied, the match is over.

Heroes

The heroes are the player-controlled units. They have a certain set of abilities/spells and a limited number of item slots. Through the game they gain experiens and gold - with the experience they level up and upgrade their abilities; with the gold they can buy items to improve their stats and use their special powers.
