    It’s amazing...In a sea of LOL imitators, its refreshing to see so many smart design ideas on display here. Thanks to the game’s gleeful disregard of genre conventions, Battlerite feels like something that few free to play games manage — refreshing and dynamic.

    Battlerite shines through its combat system which is tight and simple but also infinitely complex. A beautifully crafted and balanced title.

    A well designed competitive brawler that separates itself from the crowd. Battlerite is as rewarding as it is addictive. [Issue#269, p.54]

    For those looking for a PvP-intensive MOBA, Battlerite delivers some of the best small-scale battles you can find. Rounds are quick, but gameplay is addictive and fluid enough that you can continually play without realizing it. Though it may not have much depth, Battlerite has lots of action packed into an easy to learn package.

    Battlerite is a great PvP free-to-play game with very fun skill based combat.

    MOBA battles without complications: enter in the arena and destroy the rivals, without levels, nexus or towers. A lot of skills and synergies between the different champions of the game. It's seems to be hard for Battlerite to go beyond teamfights.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Battlerite in this crowded sea of arena/MOBA games, but once I learned that Stunlock Studios was at the helm it all made sense. This genre is in its DNA, and I hope this one catches on for a while as more than just an alternative to some of the bigger market leaders.

    Get this game. Seriously. I'm writing this review because I want people to try this game out. Here are the good reasons.

    1. It's cheap. $30
    Get this game. Seriously. I'm writing this review because I want people to try this game out. Here are the good reasons.

    1. It's cheap. $30 unlocks the full game and all the champions. Or you can play for free and unlock as you go. Unlocking new characters is relatively easy to you. The developers have put a lot of free content inside, free skins, etc. You get loot boxes often. Not like League of Legends.

    2. It's faster paced than League of Legends/DOTA. Matches last 5-10 minutes.

    3. The gameplay is skill based. There's no Random Number Generator (RNG) moves to the damage whatsoever. You need accuracy or you'll whiff your moves. The game tells you on the bottom right how you died, when you die, so you can improve and know what killed you.

    4. This is a competitive game, with a cool ranking system. This is pure PvP and everything feels fair/balanced from what I can see. You can win with every character. It doesn't matter if there are two ranged guys, two melee guys, you can win if you are good. Similarly, you can also win if the enemy is 2vs1 on you. If you're good you can win.

    5. Support this developer if you want to see more skill based games rewarded. Personally, I'm sick of League and Dota with auto right click on enemies. This game is precise and has a bit of everything: a loadout system, no cumbersome item system, no 150+ champions that barely feel different (the roster feels good).

    6. Great music, I love how this game get's into some trance like music when you're in the groove.

    7. The TENSION. This game creates tension in best of 5 matches. Many times I've had games tied 2-2 and had to win the last game to win. It's great. I haven't had this much tension since playing PUBG in the last of 5.

    8. Simple to learn, difficult to master. There's a lot of depth and high skill ceiling in this game. It's a game you can play for a long time and learn more every day from how the characters interact with each other and the different combos your characters can perform. It's a joy to learn new characters and keeps the game feeling fresh.

    9. I've had a lot of fun with this game. Join the discord, read the Reddit posts, get your friends to play a free game.

    10. Support the dev. $30 is pretty cheap and they even reimburse you if you try the game and you have played the free version I think they give you a discount for champions you've already unlocked. THESE ARE THE PRACTICES AND THE DEVELOPERS WE SHOULD REWARD. Not the cash grab Ubisoft / Electronic Arts / microtransaction kind of developers. I hope this game stays with a high playerbase because I want to play it for a long time. Hell, it should be an e-sport and there's probably just not enough traffic. I'd rather watch this than some drawn out LoL match.

    12. This is the true Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game. You seriously are in a battle arena and you feel like you're in a tournament.

    The only negative I can see is if the playerbase dwindles matches will be hard to find. Right now it's very easy to find a match.

    I think Battlerite can reach the position of League Of Legends

Lo peor quizá el machmaking, pero todo se puede arreglar con el tiempo. ¡Y encima gratis! Juego que todo el mundo debería por lo menos probar.
    9/10 porque AÚN no es perfecto.
