MOBA Monday: MOBAs Certainly Show Well at Cons

lh_moba_monday_heroes_of_the_storm_sylvanasMOBA Monday is a weekly showcase of how to perform, eh, let’s go with adequately – we hope – in a multiplayer online battle arena. The streaming squad features the hottest, upcoming or most interesting titles of their and the communities fancy for a few rounds of PvP shenanigans in our weekly Twitch channel staple.

Conventions are infectious. It’s their very nature. A giant marketing show attempting to get everyone pumped for the next big thing or to adopt the just-released big thing. I’ve repeatedly stated that cons, at least how they’re currently designed and consumed, don’t do MMOGs justice. No one has designed a booth that enables them to shine and simultaneously not have lines that are ungodly long. MMOGs simply don’t show well at conventions.

But it’s MOBA Monday, and oh boy does that genre show very well at conventions. Heck, the explosion of eSports is a testament to how well these 20-45 minute sessions can hook and pull you in. Mash PAX East with some on-the-floor Heroes of the Storm and new details around Tomb of the Spider Queen, the basement to Sky Temple, and a siege-mode Sylvanas – bwhaaa? – and you’ve got another HotS MOBA Monday on your hands.

Don’t forget that all Lore Hound Twitch shows have been moved to their new time at 7:00 PM EST. We still have the same great line up, the same shenanigans and the same daily dose of awesome.
