    according to your logic, mankind is dieing and the apocalypse is at hand.

     

    proof 1: declining search results on mankind: https://www.google.de/trends/explore#q=mankind

    proof 2: rising search results on the apocalypse: https://www.google.de/trends/explore#q=apocalypse

    I would honestly like to ask why do you believe that MMORPGs and MOBAs compete for the same type of player?  

     

    Quoting super data is only a bit worse than using wiki as being a factual source.      

    they do. plain and simple.

    Plain and simple? or just disingenuous and obfuscated? There is no evidence that they do, and Superdata retains its reputation for dubious statements, or is that too plain and simple?image

    Mobas came, conquered and started to shut down and mmorpgs are still here.

    Which is the case most of the time, if anything MOBA's are now starting to decline, one is shutting down, and others, such as smite, are circling the drain, even the most popular MOBA, LoL appears to have plateaued and may even be showing signs of decline, while there are some new MOBA's, Splatoon etc. that appear to be gaining ground. MOBA's will remain in one form or another, but its a shifting market, far more so than MMO's are.image

    I don't think it's a matter of one genre causing the demise of another - MOBAs aren't forcing MMOs out, MMOs aren't losing out to MOBAs.

    I think it's a generational thing.

    One generation grew up (I use that loosely, a lot of players being in their 20s/30s/beyond) with MMOs.

    The next generation has grown up on MOBAs. Or FPSes, or whatever.

    My mother grew up listening to Disco. I grew up listening to Alternative. My kid is growing up listening to whatever that crap on the radio is now. Same thing I think. MMOs aren't dying because of lack of innovation or evolution or anything else; heck, there are a lot of people still playing EQ 1.0 (and older games). It isn't that they aren't good anymore, it's just that they just aren't ~in~ anymore. There's a generational divide, that causes a cultural divide, and that doesn't get overcome easily.

    Disco never died - neither will MMOs.
