Zacnz said:Okay MMO stands for Massive Multiplayer Online which clearly, League of legends is. it is also a MOBA which stands for Multiplayer Online Battle...LoL is not an MMO. The highest amount of players in a game at once is 10, it's a few hundred off from being considered an MMO in just that regard. There is also no persistent world for a large number of players to inhabit, or any number for this matter, which is a requirement for being labeled an MMO. Calling a game a "MOBA" is directly implying small teams fighting each other in an arena. That is quite the opposite of many players playing with or against each other on a large scale.
