That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (14 minutes ago)
OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (21 minutes ago)
DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (23 minutes ago)
@Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (23 minutes ago)
I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (24 minutes ago)
some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (35 minutes ago)
Surely you can spot the differences. (40 minutes ago)
