Hybrid MOBA/RTS Guardians Of Atlas Now Live; Day9 Contributed To Design
Need another MOBA in your life? If so, then Artillery Games Inc. has you covered, with Guardians of Atlas, a MOBA/RTS hybrid game that went live today after three years of development. Artillery counts three "ex-Googlers" as its founders, with design of Guardians of Atlas being helped along by noted streamer/YouTuber Sean "Day9" Plott.
Available on Windows and Mac, Guardians of Atlas combines lane-based MOBA play with the economy and territory control of an RTS. You'll recruit specialized units to swarm over your enemies or support your hero in intense firefights. The game is currently limited to 3v3 matches and boasts of esports-friendly features like replays and post-match analytics.
As the introductory video shows, Guardians of Atlas' RTS-ish elements do lend an interesting layer of strategy that you don't usually see in typical hero-and-mindless-minions MOBAs. Whether that'll be enough to separate it from the massively crowded pack of MOBAs is a big question, though.
You can learn more about Guardians of Atlas and download the game on its website.

No you do not, you need to improve on all the problems dota 2 and lol have. Instead they copy all the problems and add new ones.
I tried this game and it is complete garbage that will be dead immediately.
