Leading MOBA & MMORPG PC Games by Monthly Active Users
In this infographic, Juniper has identified the top 3 MMO and MOBA Games titles by monthly active users.
MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online)
MMO games are those which simultaneously host hundreds or thousands of players in the same world or environment, so are generally open world, RPG (Role Playing Game)-style games such as WoW (World of Warcraft). However a number of other game genres also take MMO format, such as MMOFPS (First Person Shooters) games, one example of which is World War II Online.
MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena)
MOBA games have their origins in strategy games and operate on the premise of 2 teams battling to destroy each other’s bases, in a similar format to tower defence games.
