yea.. thanks for having my back... you guys are the best.. but yea... basically every game is a moba if you think of it that way.... ANYWAAAAYYYY... the game is pretty cool, fast paced... skill based.. but i don't think it has what it takes to be an esport... needs to be balanced and worked on a bit more.. especially on the feedback you get when you throw spells at players.. but it is the closest game so far to something intense and awesome ... warhammer tried it a while back... but they dropped the project because of lack of love... but i think a good way to approach this is to bring in cry engine 3 or udk into it... something like what the guys from panzar are trying to do... but with better ability design so it can give you a variety of ways to use them, im sure no one that matters will read this post but whatevz...

Does it have what it takes to be an eSport? Not yet. It has a pitifully small playerbase that would struggle to even organize a dev-sponsored tournament. Playerbase is tough to cultivate and grow, but if they can manage that there's still going to be more than a few hurdles in it's balancing. It's incredibly difficult to competitively balance games, and Forge makes a sporting effort at it, but there are still some obvious issues and even more minimal ones to get it tournament-ready.

Does it have the potential? Every game does. Will it achieve it? It's more possible than other games for sure, but it's still no easy task. That said, I'm rooting for ya Forge. I'll come back to you.

Its a quite interesting game, and the last thing to care about is whether its a “moba“ or not.
Few things I notice, while spending around 5 hrs or so:

- really nice graphics. While not something unmatched, those gloomy and dark art style does its best to emphasize violent and competitive nature of Forge.
- good music. Audio track definitely fits to what is happening on the screen.
- solid gameplay. While both energy bar, shared between sprinting/casting, and basic movement speed may feel frustrating at first (it can take a while to cross a map from one side to another), those features actually brings more tactical depth to the game. Thinking and planing are preferable to running around and randomly mashing buttons from 1 to 8.
- not p2w. By leveling up player get access to side grades rather than upgrades.
- great time saver. Actually, #1 plus to me. Forget about grinding for the max lvl and those mediocre "true mass pvp" titles. If you like pvp and value your time - give it a shot.

Spunkify, this IS a MOBA. This ISN'T a DOTA-like.
