eSports Changes in Black Ops 3 Not Inspired by MOBAs

Black Ops 3

Did you see the new eSports aspects of Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and felt that they were inspired somehow by multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games?

Well, you might think so but the developers don’t.

David Vonderhaar, the director for Black Ops 3 at Treyarch Studios tackled the question and tried to draw the line and differentiate saying “I guess if you’re a MOBA player I can understand why you could draw that parallel, but it wasn’t MOBA-inspired.” He then continued:

I want to make sure people understand where [Specialists] came from. Call of Duty is a very customised game, Create-a-Class is a very customised experience. It’s really an experience about being able to pick whatever you want in whatever combinations to create your own sort of play style.

He also added that “Treyarch has been a big supporter of create-a-class with the Pick10 system, and [that they have] been looking for ways to extend and expand that system for the longest time.”

Ending it by saying that such features have been implemented in “pretty significant ways for the franchise in the past few years.”

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 releases November 6, 2015 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.
