Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA)

Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) or sometimes known as action real-time strategy (ARTS), is a genre of strategy video games. Originating from the all popular Defese of the Ancients (DotA) map for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne, MOBA became one of the fastest growing online video game genres. The objective of the game is to destroy the main structure of the enemy base. You receive help from the computer-controlled units, which follow a specific path. The map consists of three-pathways protected by your and enemy towers. In order to destroy the main structure you have to fight enemies and destroy enemy's towers on your way to the completion of the main objective. You choose a character(usually from a huge roster) with different abilities, strengths and weaknesses. You level up, improve your abilities and buy items with currency of the in-game gold, which increases with every successful player-enemy, enemy-structure or computer-controlled enemy kill/destruction. The genre itself fuses different genres, some of them include action games, RTS and RPGs.
