The massive success of eSports has led to plenty of competition on PCs, but so far mobile games that are ready for professional competitive play have yet to really break through. Claiming to be giving more power of outcome to the players, this game rewards skill and takes out the feeling that randomness dictates. During each match, the player gets to drive one of the available vehicles and together with other players is tasked with destroying the opponents’ towers.
One of the youngest MOBAs on the scene, Blizzard is expanding the hero roster at a terrifying rate. In DotA-Allstars, players on each side choose one of ninety-five heroes, each with different abilities and tactical advantages over other heroes. This quickly changed when two modders—Guinsoo and Icefrog—got their hands on the game and started tweaking details to emphasize what they saw as the most compelling elements of gameplay by incentivizing team skirmishes over PvE-focused gameplay.

LoL is free to play and is somewhat controversial for its various in-game content for sale, such as experience boosts, the playable hero characters, and cosmetic skins for those characters. LoL is regularly one of the most viewed games on streaming services such as twitch, adding to its already big appeal for professional players and streamers.
