Game Mechanics & Game Play
Basically, it’s an online multiplayer battle of 5 vs 5 players where each team fought with another to destroy each other bases while maintaining their own bases. They also need to maintain a path that is known as Lane. The lanes are 3 in number namely top, middle & bottom. These lanes connect the bases, top one through the top order of the map, middle one through the middle order of the map and the bottom one follows the bottom order.
Each team comprises of 5 players where every player gets the opportunity to control and handle different kind of avatars aka heroes from their own devices along with myriads of spells & other awesome abilities. Along with this various device generated and controlled characters, much weaker and feeble in strength spawns over the map. They also follow the lanes from the base to the enemy base.
The first and foremost skill for playing this one is same as in case of any other MOBA game i.e. communication. You need to have enough and appropriate free communication to be an ideal team man. Keep this in mind it’s A TEAM GAME!! TEAM DEFEAT IS YOUR DEFEAT!
Copy write controversy on Mobile Legends: Bang Bang
On 7th of June, 2017, RIOT GAMES, INC., a Delaware corporation, filed a case against SHANGHAI MOONTON TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. In the United States District Court, Central District of California.
The Charges filled were specifically three complaints against the defender stating:
(1) Copyright infringement
(2) Trademark infringement
(3) False designation of origin
The initial version of the game developed by Moonton was quite similar to the League of Legends by Riot Games INC.
The entire of the controversy began from the similarity in the initial logo of the game, usage of similar fonts, textures, color codes, stating down nearly even locations of each single piece objective on the map.
All the things start getting bitter with Emily (Magic Rush’s Hero). It can be stated simply as a mobile game character but anybody with common gaming sense can note that the idea was crossing the path with Annie, another similar character in Riot’s product.
Beside Mobile Legends: Bang Bang there were another two games from Moonton namely Mobile Legends: 5V5 MOBA & Magic Rush: Heroes that were also brought into consideration for questionnaire of copyright infringement.
