Strife vs Arena of Valor: In this article, we will be comparing two very popular MOBA games in recent times. However, keep in mind that Strife 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.
Strife was developed by the creators of Heroes of Newerth, S2 Games. Strife was created primarily for the casual player-base of the MOBA genre. Many gameplay elements were introduced in the game with the primary motive of reducing toxicity. There were also a lot of elements that focused on activity out of a match, like Pets and Crafting.
Strife was announced on August 8, 2013 and it had been in development for 2 years. On February 22, 2014, Strife went in closed beta, and on August 29, 2014 Strife went in open beta. On May 22, 2015 Strife was released as a free-to-play on Steam.
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.
Strife vs Arena of Valor: As you must have guessed, these games are very similar to each other. However, Strife 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 Strife. If you are a mobile gamer, go for Arena of Valor. I personally prefer Strife because I’m a PC gamer.
