    My Personal Review:

    Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) type games have taken over the gaming world over
    the past five years; sharing an experience or battling an opponent that is a
    human, sitting somewhere in the world on his PC is a far more interesting and
    competitive challenge. S2 games, creators of Heroes of Newerth (HoN) , which
    holds a massive title in the MOBA world , have launched the BETA version of
    their newest title “Strife” which will be the subject of my review.

    When one thinks of MOBA games contemporarily, the most well-known
    titles are “DOTA 2”, which was the basis of this world, and LOL (League of
    Legends). Strife’s main keystone or
    white space is trying to offer a less player-toxic environment. The problem is
    that new and old players are hitting a barrier that was created by the existing
    genre’s community. Strife is designed to
    keep players engaged in inter-team team conflict while minimizing intra-team
    conflict. Barriers to entry have been significantly reduced through a focus on
    cleanly communicating complex game mechanics and abiding by consistent game rules.
    Crafting and pets allow for first-time levels of customization on the
    battlefield and de-emphasize the need for rigidly defined roles.

    Strife is designed to be a globally accessible and
    integrated experience where all heroes and game content are available for free
    from release. Strife also offers a storyline aspect, which is the first
    of its kind in the MOBA games arena to offer a set plot for the players to travel
    through in a MOBA game. I have played a total of 20 hours so far on steam and I
    have reached level 9 on my profile. The ladder increases as you level up, so
    you play with more experienced players, mostly. I feel like what’s missing now
    is the growth of the community in strife, it just need to grow in player base
    so we can truly test its anti-player toxicity. But again one cannot change the
    human trolling behavior on the internet. I recommend anyone who has enjoyed a
    MOBA game before to try Strife out, it does offer something new and wants to
    improve the MOBA gaming experience.
