I've played the beta, it's very good.  And the matches are quick, about 25 to 30 minutes, on average.

This looks exactly like Marvel Ultimate Alliance from about 10 years ago.

Their current map is quite boring. It similar to Dominion which is not popular.

They need a more interesting map.

Its funny because unless DC and WB are willing to spend a lot of cash to support the game and have a very well defied long term plan (years) to support this game there is no chance they are snatching anything bigger than a few scraps of the MOBA community that is already established on Dota2 and LoL.

How many failed MOBA games would they need to see fail to realize that without the commitment to support this kind of game on a very long period of time there is no chance of success?

I mean, I don't doubt they can release something decent, heck they may even get something good, but if they go in with the standard mentality of getting a quick cash grab then forget about the game in a few months (like 90% of the games do) there is no way to succeed.

Awesome bats picture... Too bad the game-type and gameplay looks average to me.... I would totally snatch up a spidey shattered dimensions-esque batman infinite crisis game though... Someone get working on that, ASAP.

We already have enough MOBAs in the esports scene, I don't think this one is gonna rise up to the popularity of the others.

Why not try to get Injustice in the competitive gaming scene?

I like the idea of a DC based MOBA, but I just don't see this competing with League of Legends or Dota 2

@DarkSaber2k Guess they really want him too look more bat like. He looks sorta similar in the new Justice League Flashpoint movie from the trailer I saw yesterday.
