These are the 5 best MOBA characters ever!

LOLJOKE

I love listicles. You know why? Because they are 100% accurate, and not in the least bit subjective. Trust me, I have thousands of hours poured into the MOBA genre, so best you believe me when I say that the following characters are DEFINITELY the best in the business…

Johanna (Heroes of the Storm)

When an enemy team picks Johanna, it’s best to AFK at spawn until the game is done. She is LITERALLY unkillable. She can make her skin tough as iron, making her unstoppable for several seconds for crying out loud!

And then she has that damn shield. Just look at it – it’s big enough to protect her entire body, and shiny enough to blind opponents temporarily too. Rumours are that Johanna spends half her day polishing the damn thing with Brasso, and the other half being her unkillable self. Both are probably true!

Oh but don’t worry, as menacing as that mace may look, Johanna actually doesn’t have much going her way in the damage department. Blizzard had to balance her somehow, right? Yeah take her shield away ok, then we can talk about the game being fair when she is picked!

Johanna

Nidalee (League of Legends)

Nidalee is just your typical League of Legends champion. She can harass opponents with her long range javelin, set traps, and even heal and buff attack speeds. Oh, and she can also turn into a cougar. So there’s that…

Two forms means that there are two different sets of skills Nidalee can use to hunt opponents down. That makes her twice as deadly, especially when she alternates between both forms at the speed of light to maximise killing potential.

What would you rather have kill you – a spear in the back, or claws to the face? Skilled players will have you dying via both.

Nidalee

Petal (Vainglory)

Oh cute, a flower creature thing! Petal probably wouldn’t hurt a fly. Probably.

No, based on her design alone, one can see that she is definitely a support character. Her abilities support this notion too. She can plant seeds to grant allies healing and armor. Nice!

But then she can spawn pets from those seeds, and then she can… make them explode? THAT MONSTER!

Petal

Freya (SMITE)

Admittedly, I’ve not played SMITE enough to offer an informed opinion on which of the many gods is the very best. I love the name Freya though, so… yeah.

Freya  is the queen of the Valkyries, which in itself makes her a certified badass. She also has a large sword, which is perfect for poking holes in those who get in her way. When those annoying enemies decide to run away, she can become a ranged attacker. And then, when she’s really pissed off, she can fly above the battleground and rain down hell from above.

Yeah I like the sound of her. Now if only I had the time to play some SMITE…

Freya

Puck (Dota 2)

Of course I’ve saved the best for last. Puck is without a doubt, the best Dota 2 character, and probably the best hero across all MOBAs.

What is Puck you ask? A faerie dragon of course. What gender is he/she? Well, that’s a topic that has been debated for the past few centuries, to no avail. Personally, I think it’s a she.

Not that it matters of course. What does matter, is what this little faerie dragon is capable of. Puck has a very slippery skillset, making her nearly unkillable in the right player’s hands. I for example, have a 3562 game streak of being completely unharmed (give or take a few thousand games). BEAT THAT!

Puck

And there you have it – a completely accurate, wholly objective and not made-up list consisting of the top 5 MOBA characters. Disagree with any of my selections? Bah, GET GUD NOOB! Also, feel free to disagree with me in the comments – I’d love to hear what your top choices are!

      My original list had Murky, but felt he was too similar to Petal in some ways 😛

    Nintendo should make a MOBA game. As a bonus if you win quick enough or score enough points you rescue Peach and she drops cosmetic loot but if you don’t Toad tells you she’s in another castle

    Luckily for Freya she has decent armour to ensure she’s well protected.

    I can respect MOBAS, I like the idea. It’s just really not my thing. I played a lot of the first DOTA and also DemiGod.

          30 minutes would be a vast improvement.

            Yet no one questions why she would say “next”

            It’s like you think the 3 minutes thing is a new joke. 😛

            (because, you know, the “what she said” is totally new)

            Did you think Captain Obvious would stay a Captain his whole life?

            He made himself captain a while ago, I think a demotion is in order.

            Especially after seeing a particular picture. I think Ensign has a nice ring to it

            See now that type of attitude is why a demotion is in order
