If upcoming MOBA options like Heroes of the Storm still seem too hardcore for you, then Spacetime Studio's got your fix, with Call of Champions, which offers fast-paced 3v3 matches for mobile designed to take only five minutes. Five minutes!

Spacetime just released a trio of videos detailing Call of Champions' core game concepts: the Orb, which increases the damage done by defending turrets while protecting your attackers from the enemy turrets; powerups, which grant your champion a boost to his or her abilities and can be distributed to your team; and the class system, which is about what you'd expect in a MOBA.

Yeah, it's another MOBA, but the Orb and powerup systems are at least a little innovative, and you have to admit, if you're going to make a MOBA for mobile devices, keeping the matches short is a shrewd move. Currently in alpha, Clash of Champions is set for a 2015 release on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and on Google Play for Android devices.

Though they might be taking the "five-minute" thing a bit too seriously. Their chief vision officer -- an interesting title in its own right -- is named Cinco Barnes. Cinco. Spanish for "five." Really?

5 minute long matches? Go play Bloodline Champions. The best MOBA on the market imo. Better than LoL or DotA, which I don't even consider such.

I dont understand the idea of the orb because you have to die to push a lane ? That's stupid ...

hardcore? 6 years ago
Heroes of the Storm hardcore? No. As much as I enjoy playing HoS more than other MoBa's, it's definitely not as hardcore as something like League or DoTa.

That may be the reason I like HoS so much.

Off topic I know but I felt I had to point it out

"We like MOBA's but it's been done..." So here's the plan... WE MAKE ANOTHER MOBA, add a stupid orb people fight over, and pretend it changes everything!

I don't get what they're trying to say in the video. They like MOBA's but it's been done, and then they turn around, and make another MOBA, and all of a sudden it's different? No, it's still a MOBA, in competition with League of Legends, and yes, it's been done before.

The entirety of their entire concept looks, and sounds stupid. People don't only play MOBA's for team fights. If that was the case, games like this, and that game EA had which just shut down, would be more popular, but they're not. And needless to say, if Blizzard wasn't backing Heroes of the Storm, it probably wouldn't be doing as well as it is now. (Despite my love for Heroes of the Storm).

If these guys were smart, they'd scrap their game, save themselves the money of shutting it down 3 months down the road.

My opinion though, who knows, this game could take off. But I highly doubt it.
