Don't agree. But if you have a better suggestion, be my guest?
While the MOBA term (Massive Online Battle Arena) can technically be applied to almost any game, generally it refers to games such as Dota, LoL, SMITE, etc. What these games have in common is that you pick one hero/champion/character out of a pool that has specific abilities, play in teams against each other, get stronger throughout the game by killing the enemy team and/or their creeps/minions/NPCs, then end the game by destroying a final structure.

Mordhau doesn't really fit this description. It's closer to Battlefield Conquest mode in that you fight over specific objectives and have a set number of tickets/lives. And while you can customise your character with different weapons, armour and skills, you don't become stronger or level up during a match.

If there isn't a specific category on Carbonite that it fits under (FPS, RPG, MOBA, etc), then it can just fall under the main Gaming section as well.

In terms of the game itself, it does look like fun if I can get a couple of my friends to play with. I enjoyed Chivalry for quite some time but only when playing with friends.

Good rebuttal :)

The other super important characteristic of of a MOBA is laning. And whilst any arena will have limited paths unless the battle is primarily around those lanes and for control of them then it doesn't qualify. As soon as you lose the concept of lane control you are no longer looking at a MOBA. And I'm pretty sure MURDERHIT has none of that.

Ok now that you girls have had your say about the supposed genre of the game, are you going to contribute any worthwhile comments on the actual game? Since that was sortof the whole point here. Kthx

I've also been having a lot of fun with this game, playing on SA servers has been great, the servers are always full (which could be why they don't always show up).

I've played with friends but I think this would be huge fun with a squad.

As soon as I'm back online I'll join you peeps! None of my friends currently have this game.. I think. But im sure to party up must be
And here I started 2 days ago again after being absent from Dota 2 for about 15 months.
Haha probably because of the battlepass... Which is always a legit fun reason to play.
