I live in Asia, Korea, actually. This is the epicenter of online games. I don't like playing them cause the Koreans will clean your clock. They play for hours at PC bangs and they usually only play one game for years and thus become experts. I ask my students what games they play. Used to be Starcraft. These days it's LOL.

Good. More is better and options are what people clamor for in other less relevant circles, so bring us new games worth playing, even if they are nerfed to mere battle arenas.

This could be vary cool if done right.I'm a little disappointed  that it wont release in the west, but I've wondered why Disney didn't try to bring Marvel to the MOBA scene. It's the fastest growing genre and the Marvel universe would work pretty well.

I've never been a fan of LOL or DOTA, frankly coz I'm too lazy to learn each character's "intricacies". But with the Marvel Universe (or DCU, for that matter), hmm, I could be down with this.
