LoL vs Arena of Valor: In this article, we will be comparing two very popular MOBA games in recent times. However, keep in mind that League of Legends is a PC game, and Arena of Valor is a mobile game. But is one game better than the other at core gameplay? Let’s find out.
League of Legends
League of Legends was inspired from the original Warcraft 3 mod – Dota. A few programmers who were working on Dota decided to leave that project in IceFrog’s hands and moved over to Riot Games to develop League of Legends.
League of Legends is beginner friendly MOBA game. The skill curve is not so steep, and even new players can enjoy the game after playing just a few matches.
LoL was released before HotS. Hence, League of Legends acquired a massive fanbase, before HotS could even begin the race. However, Hots was still quite popular and gave a good competition to League of Legends after its release.
Gameplay-wise, League removed many of the complicated gameplay elements from the original Dota, and made an interesting and welcoming game of a trending genre.
Arena of Valor
Arena of Valor is the international adaptation of ‘Wangzhe Rongyao’, an extremely popular Chinese mobile game. Both the games were developed by Tencent.
Arena of Valor was released in 2016 in Taiwan. Its popularity grew massively each passing day. Tencent slowly started releasing the game in different countries and now its playable all over the World. Arena of Valor is also available on Nintendo Switch now.
Arena of Valor is called the ‘kingpin of pocket gaming’ in the mobile gaming market, and has amassed over 200 million players.
LoL vs Arena of Valor: As you must have guessed, these games are very similar to each other. However, League is a PC game, while Arena of Valor is a mobile game.
Hence, gameplay-wise these two titles are quite a bit different, as they have their own flavor. It’s quite clear that both these games are quite good and entertaining, so the only question is: Do you prefer playing on your computer or your mobile.
If you prefer playing on PC, go for LoL. If you are a mobile gamer, go for Arena of Valor. I personally prefer LoL because I’m a PC gamer.
