    Didn't like their MOBA at all. Their 3rd person perspective just don't fit in a MOBA at all IMO. Never liked HiRez and never will, they are like the 2nd EA. They release some really generic games with nothing great about them then about a year or two later, they will completely stop or really slow down the release of new content/patch updates so that they can work and their new generic game and start the process all over again. This game will be forgotten like all their other titles in like a year, maybe even less.

    They have released two games. Total. So what exactly are you talking about? Global Agenda they were releasing huge content updates for quite a while, and when the population just dwindled they decided to basically keep it running with little bug fixes here and there. Erez said himself that he will continue to keep the game running as long as there are a few people playing. At least they keep it running. And Tribes is constantly getting updates still, and so is SMITE. They are one development team, and if they put resources towards a game that is coming out soon, it just makes sense.

    I love this game. It is a fun experience and a breath of fresh air in the moba scene.

    This game is surprisingly awesome. Still some hero balancing that needs to be done, but the foundation that is already laid out is amazing.
