Master X Master - A Groundbreaking MOBA Which Will Shake the E-Sports Scene
In today’s article we will be looking at a brand new game, which recently went into Closed Beta, called Master X Master or MXM for short. And I have to say that I’m pretty excited about this game after playing it just once. MxM is being developed and published by NCsoft, the same company behind a plethora of popular MMOs such as Blade & Soul, Guild Wars, Aion and others. NCsoft is a company which primarily focuses on MMOs, however this game is not one.
MxM is NCsoft’s first attempt at the MOBA genre – and they are going very well so far in my opinion. When I first heard of it and signed up for the beta, I was a little sceptic at first, because I thought that MxM would be just another MOBA game, maybe a little different here and there, but with its core elements unchanged, aka lane farming for days. In any case I decided to try it out since I had been picked for the Closed Beta test. And I only have to say that I am really glad to have been picked, because I got the chance to play this wonderful game.
Why I think that MxM is a great game?
MOBA genre became famous with DOTA - a mod of the original game Warcraft 3 - but it wasn’t until a few years later that more MOBA games started to arise, with League of Legends leading the charge. Today, many more MOBAS exist in the market with the most popular being the previous two and with a couple of others like SMITE, Heroes of the Storm and HON following right behind them. I myself am an avid MOBA gamer with SMITE being my main MOBA for the time being. SMITE was the reason I stopped playing League of Legends and DOTA 2 altogether and the reason as to why I did so was because it had something new, innovative and most importantly fun to offer in comparison to the others, that was its third-person camera perspective which made the game fun for me.
And that’s exactly the reason I liked MxM that much, because it has cool, new features that we haven’t seen in any successful MOBA so far. But before I go into detail about that let’s go over the game’s main good features.
