League of Legends, DotA 2, and Smite are just a few of the most popular games online you can download on your gaming laptop. Aside from being free-to-play, they also have one thing in common, all of them are MOBA games. This makes MOBA games one of the largest communities in the online gaming world. There’s just something about its gameplay that makes it exciting to play.

And as a MOBA gamer myself, playing these games have not only entertained me but also taught me a couple of things. Let me share it with you:

  • Teamwork is everything.

MOBA games are all about teamwork. One cannot simply do everything and carry all of its members to victory. Each must take their own roles and stick to it. It requires communication and cooperation from each other to ensure the success of the team.

  • Your Support can turn the tides of battle.

Some people think that support players are standbys who only works by healing his allies and making sure that everyone gets the kills. But supports are more than that. They work hard to help the team get stronger, take the damage from the enemies to save allies, and provide vision by planting wards around the map. And if you watch closely, most support characters possessed crowd control skills can turn the tides of battle.

  • Stop blaming others for your mistake.

There’s no use in blaming others every time your team loses. The best thing you can do is look at yourself and the strategy you executed in the game. Accept if your tactics didn’t work well, and work to improve yourself.

  • Practice pays off.

The only way to become a better gamer is practice. Every pro-gamer started as an amateur who persevered through practicing and became better game after game. If you want to try a new hero or champion, practice playing it again and again until you memorized its skills and how to use them in different situations.

  • Don’t be selfish.

MOBA games aren’t FPS games where the one who gets all the kills happens to be the best. As it was stated earlier, everyone plays a role in the game. Don’t steal others kill, and communicate with your team when initiating clashes.

  • Always think positive.

There’s something about positive guys that makes them good teammates. They tend to look at the brighter side of things and don’t give up early. Be like them, and always be positive when playing with others.

  • Learn from your defeats.

It’s okay to be beaten in games, there’s no need to lose hope and quit just because you think you suck at it. Every defeat is an excellent way to reassess your gameplay, think of new tactics and improve on your next game.
