MOBA (Multi-Player Online Battle Arena) games are very popular right now, and Arena of Valor is one title that tries to bring in an interesting approach when it comes to that particular genre. And, in many ways, it does a very successful job at that.
Right away, you will see that Arena of Valor is a very distinct and fun game for you to play. Not only that, but it’s also created with the idea that you have a 3-lane arena to explore and that’s it. The game does a very good job at bringing in front an intuitive gameplay, but the strategies are in your hands.
And that’s the cool thing here. Arena of Valor has 40+ heroes and it always receives updates with new heroes and skills. As you can imagine, each hero comes with its own skills, and it does get better and better all the time, which is really fun. You can create a team that include support, marksmen, mages, assassins and warriors if you want too. The great part about the game is that it always makes it easy for you to experience the game in any way you want.
Aside from the regular 5v5 which is the core MOBA experience, Arena of Valor also goes on a rather interesting path. Basically, it allows you to play 3v3 and even 1v1 if you want. This does bring in front quite a nifty and funny experience. And yes, the game does get better and better the more you play this type of mode. It’s also designed with efficiency and value in mind, which is exactly what you want here.
Based on my experience, you don’t have to wait a lot of time for matches. The games load up fast and finding matches can be pretty good. Yet what I like the most is that the matches are not that long. It’s always important to play shorter matches instead of wasting a lot of time on a single match. The Arena of Valor developers know that, and that’s the thing which makes the title so much better than before.
Joining up your friends in team battles is really good, but you can also play with random people from all over the world. I am a fan of the customization and monetization aspect here. They don’t have skills to pay for, instead you just pay for customizations and skins. That’s fair, and it’s a good monetization system that you can rarely see in games like this. Which is a shame, because something like this is what makes a lot of sense in the gaming community.
Graphically, Arena of Valor also looks nice. It’s not the ultimate MOBA from a visual standpoint, but it does look great and it brings in front a rather nifty value as a whole. I particularly like it because it delivers a fun experience as a whole and it’s quite fun to play all the time. You will be very impressed when it comes to playing the game, and this will certainly offer you a lot of fun.
