So franchising MOBA's are a thing now? Is there a McDonald's or Burger King equivalent?

Looks like a waste of time. For the consumers and the developers.

I was fine with Witcher the card/board game but also making a MOBA is one step to far for me. At this rate it seems like they are trying to expand the Witcher brand a bit to fast.

You can't blame CD Projekt RED for trying everything they can to get this franchise mainstream attention.

...Okay, maybe a little.

It just seems so silly with all these MOBAs I agree. It's not a genre like third-person shooter that can kind of be anything, MOBAs have VERY strict rule sets (almost like a sport) so there's not very much of a reason why there should be a lot of them...DOTA and league kind of have it covered. There's a reason why there's only the NFL, Arena league football, and basically nothing else in America when it comes to football.

Oh . . . oh lawdy!! It looks so generic and bad. Sluggishness, muddy, trite, and simply poor are the words that come time mind looking at this.

This looks balls. I love The Witcher, I freak'n love it... but this doesn't look like its either for me OR MOBA fans.

It's a smart idea, getting the massive MOBA community to pay attention to The Witcher - if only for the massive player base - but they aren't leaving LoL or Dota2 for this.

Basic fact-checking ... like a 30 second visit to their website ... would show that this is not a moba.

Based on the end of the trailer, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone

Edit: The beta is android only apparently. Likely because of their lax sideloading rules.

I also like that a 30 second trip to there website and the first paragraph I'm greeted with is.

"The Witcher Battle Arena is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game in which players take control of iconic and powerful characters from the Witcher universe."

Bah whatever, made on the cheap as a low cost console downloadable by the looks of it. This is basically just an advertisement for the franchise so people have more recognition for the Witcher 3 release.

Oh look, another MOBA for people to ignore. Attempting to cash in on the League and Dota money is a fool's errand, nothing a MOBA ever does will convince those communities to adopt another game.

I don't know why you guys are so down on this. Remember how popular WoW was and how those companies made MMO's to try to capitalize on that success and how it totally worked? Remember that guys?

...guys?

Apparently it's an android, going by the review quotes.

Meh? I really like the Witcher, but this feels like even more of a shoe-in that the Lord of the Rings MOBA. What a weird fit. I guess they're hoping for name recognition.

And where the fuck is the Pokémon MOBA? If anything was designed for MOBAs, it was that franchise.

Is this going to be a thing now? Taking your beloved franchise to first make a card game, and then a MOBA? This can't be a coincidence, right?
