MOBA Monday is a weekly showcase of how to perform, eh, let’s go with adequately – we hope – in a massive 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.
Walking around QuakeCon 2015 it was exciting to see the smorgasbord of content on display. I’m not referring to the insane amount of creativity showcased in the numerous case mods or ridiculous communal nature that guilds and alliances create through the internet. Nope, straight up talking about the games being played inside the BYOC. Everything was on display, indie titles, AAA shooters, Quake Live, piles of digital garbage and lots of Rocket League. Holy crap, was there a lot of Rocket League.
Naturally, there was quite a bit of MOBA play going on. This despite Bethesda opting not to show BattleCry, its online multiplayer combat title, at the show. Or really anything for that matter, but that’s a topic for another post. A nice surprise was seeing SMITE at the convention. Not once or twice but over and over. And over. It wasn’t because these people were validating my affection for the game, but gave me new teammates and people to chew the fat with. All that simply made me want to play the game ASAP, which I did, but now I want to play more. So I will!
All this and more shall begin around 9:00 PM EST. Hit the jump or head directly to the channel page to watch live. Don’t forget to follow for all the updates and giveaway opportunities.
