    For anyone loving mmo combat/pvp and also wanting to try a real moba, I can only recommend Smite.

    What do you mean "real MOBA"  ...  DOTA started the whole thing, LoL and HoN expanded it...  my Smite (and other similar off-brand) experiences have been very poor at best.

    I might give Smite another try I guess but I believe the Beta (or whatever I played) was pretty bad.

    HERCULES A ROMAN GOD????Pfffffff what has happened to this world.....Highrez shouldn't even consider adding "roman" mythology Gods since 99% of it is purely Greek

    With real moba I mean it has everything a moba should have, plus mmo controls and third person view.

    Well if they'd called him Heracles most people would have no idea who the hell he is.

    If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

    Well the official language of the game is english and according to that language his name is Hercules. That doesnt mean that if they baptise him as Greek they' d have to call him Heracles .Example Zeus is the Roman name for Thias (Dias) which is the Greek name ,But he is called a Greek God. Same goes for Hades..He is called Greek God but the Greek name is Athis(A-dis). And i 'll repeat this: 99% of ROMAN mythology is Greek with a slight twist.Usually towards kinkiness and sexuality...

    Edit : Highrez is mistaking by creating Roman Gods...The Roman mythology has nothing new to offer and is not original...

    They could create an Afrikan Pantheon(Ashanti, Fon, Dinka, Yoruba, Khoikhoi, Ibo, Xhosa, Shongo, and Zulu mythologies).

    Or a Mesopotamian Mythology Pantheon(with Gods from the Sumerians and Akkadians, and their successors, the Babylonians and Assyrians)

    Or even Oceanic/Polynesian mythology....

    So many original mythological pantheons...
