Teamwork is an essential part of the MOBA genre. Players fill a role on the team that they must fulfill to the best of their ability to give themselves the highest chance of success. League of Legends is such a game that takes this mechanic seriously. Players will fill roles--the marksman, the support, the tank, the mage--and coordinate with their team to secure a win. This is the staple of the MOBA genre.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Heroes of the Storm takes this notion, a game with similarly defined roles, but merely uses that as a foundation to ensure team play. Both games have their differences in these mechanics and to better understand what players might enjoy more, I pulled Team Curse’s Heroes of the Storm pro player, Manny “Fury” Medina. He has achieved the rank of Challenger in League of Legends and currently plays the tank role on our pro-level Heroes of the Storm roster; his insight fuels this article.
