Call-of-Champions_keyartSpacetime Studios has announced their newest game: Call of Champions – a real-time competitive MOBA that you play in short 5 minute bursts. The game lets you play in 3v3 matches and gives you power-ups, a bunch of abilities for each character, and a five minute max time limit. You’ll get to choose from over twenty different Champions, each with their own special abilities, and join up with your friends to form teams and climb the leader boards.

“While the concept of the mobile MOBA is not new, we feel there’s significant room to improve
the competitive experience, catering to the short sessions in which gamers use their mobile
devices,” said Gary Gattis, CEO, Spacetime Studios. “We’ve distilled the MOBA to its core
components by removing things like item shops, minions, and jungles while adding power-ups, a
five-minute clock, and a full suite of crazy abilities at your fingertips. Add on deep social layers
like friends, teams, and broadcast/spectator modes, and there is nothing like it on mobile.”

You can check out the roster and vote for your favorites by signing up at www.CallofChampions.com.
Call of Champions will be available later this year as a free download.

AerenaAs mentioned earlier this week, free-to-play turn-based MOBA Aerena: Clash of Champions has a new premium priced version called Aerena – Masters Edition. This new edition eschews its former F2P model in favor of asking players to pay upfront for an experience that’s ad-free and eliminates the grind. Since I reviewed Aerena when it first came out and noted the game’s somewhat slow progression, I decided to take a look at Masters Edition to see how well it delivers on its promises.

aerena-masters-edition-iOS-02As it turns out, I found myself able to purchase unlocks including new units, ships, and shells all within playing a couple matches, which is a big difference from Clash of Champions. It seems as though Masters Edition is more generous with its in-game currency in general, making progression feel a lot smoother. In doing so, playing it felt more like a game about crafting a loadout that fits a particular playstyle rather than a game about slapping together whatever units and items are the most affordable.

aerena-masters-edition-iOS-04It is worth noting that with this re-release players can still opt to play Aerena in its free-to-play form, and both versions of the game allow players to play against one another. Also worth noting is the fact that the free-to-play version offers time-limited trials of new units, whereas the paid version does not. This isn’t really a big deal though, since it is easy enough to unlock units in Masters Edition anyway.

Overall, those that were frustrated by the progression mechanics of Aerena: Clash of Champions in its original form should be pleased with the changes that Aerena – Masters Edition has made. That being said, anyone that wasn’t initially compelled by it won’t be won over by this new version.
