EDIT: Dammit, just realised that title should be 'MOBA from Epic'.|
While we're drowning in MOBAs, this looks good, if only visually at this point. ;D

Officially considered more *mic drop* than FFVII remake gameplay footage.
Took a completely random and ill advised punt on this whilst faffing about on my PS4 earlier today.
I really like it.
No idea why, but it holds the place as the only MOBA to hold my attention for more than a game or two. Controls well, seems balanced enough and looks very sexy to boot.

I've hovered over it a few times but haven't taken the plunge yet. I've never really got the whole MOBA thing (tried SMITE, hated it) and I'm not positive id enjoy this.
Yeah, I didn't really get on with Smite either.
Can't really put a finger on why this has clicked with me either. Partially the sci-fi aesthetic I think, but the overall setup just seems to be a bit easier to get my head round. The deck building levelling system is quite cool.

Smite, like most mobas, requires a lot of time to get used to. The game is fantastic.
I would try Paragon, but you have to buy to get access currently, correct? Plus I already have 2 mobas on the go!
Yeah, I stumped up 15 quid on a bit of a whim.
I don't think its probably a great deal different to Smite. Just seems to be a little easier to grasp the basics, and the characters seem a little less overwhelming, plus it has futuristic UE4 sci-fi prettiness that has lured me in.
Confused, as I downloaded this on ps4 last week or so. Are you saying I can't actually play it without spending money?
Yeah, it's not actually out yet. 15 quid nets you early access to the alpha/beta stages and a few character skins etc. When it releases later in the year it's f2p.

Looks really good, but I'll wait for the free version and ensure it isn't pay to win first. If it doesn't give advantages to those willing to drop money (as promised) I'll drop some cash on cosmetics as fair payment
Really enjoying this.
A lot of people still run in and play it like a shooter(I can be really aggressive myself. Even in League I tend to push past the minion line a lot.), but once a meta sets in, and you start playing against people playing it like a MOBA, it can be pretty darn great. Team battles in the jungle are a lot if fun!

I've been playing a fair bit of this, aside from Awesomenauts this is my first MOBA so it's been a bit of a learning experience.
If anyone fancies teaming up I'm on PSN as plus1wizardhat or bovril666 on the in-game network.
Is this ftp yet?
Open beta for everyone who signed up atm I think, for the weekend anyway.
Otherwise still paid early access.

Been playing over the last couple of weeks, its not bad if rather traditional and i cant quite get my head around the card system. Its like the dota shop but you set the decks before hand?
Got an extra code for reaching Paragon level 20, my first a second refusals turned it down, so maybe someone here will use it.
Sorry it's like this, rather it went to a person who'll use it, not a bot. it's in xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx format, but i'll put numbers in the first two parts in sums inside brackets.
(6 minus 2)(3 multiplied by 2)MM(16 divided by 2)-JP(3 minus 1)(5 plus 2)L-2M99A-EM5RY

Played the beta over weekend and really enjoyed what i've been playing and i don't normally like mobas. The one thing that bothers me though is the complete lack of tutorial and had to watch a few videos before i even got an idea of what i was supposw to be doing.
Also, i'm guessing the terrible match making is due to the beta? Most games take at least 10 mins to form a group.

What's a moba and this looks pretty good.
MOBA are games like League of Legends, DOTA2, Smite, etc....
2 teams of 5 fighting for control of the map and try to destroy the enemy teams base. Start from level 1 every game, kill minions, enemy heroes, jungle creeps and towers for exp and gold, buy items from the shop to increase your stats and get the advantage, outplay the other team, push, and destroy the base.
Paragon is in a bit of a weird place atm, with it being in early beta. There's no real meta atm, so you'll get some games where you'll just run around as a team together killing, because of how card xp is shared(everyone gets it all as long as their in the same zone) and a lot of players won't start laning until maybe 10/15 minutes, and games could wind up lasting 45m-1hr.
It has a lot of growing to do, but it can be a lot of fun if you get a team willing to play it like a MOBA, and not a TDM.
I haven't come across many games where people treat it as TDM. The one thing i have found is that it's far too to easy to zerg and win within 10mins.
Big changes coming.

Just download this free on ps4, any love for it on here ?
Actually,yes. I played a game against bots earlier but came away impressed how it's put together. Some fantastic character design,great graphics and a nice depth to its unlocks and rewards. I'll certainly be trying it again.
Link to a founders pack if anyone who hasn't got one wants to get in before the open beta.
