As the other half of the Krater fanclub, I was intrigued by the news of a MOBA spin-off. Let it be known, I have no love for the strategy subset, as Sisyphean a task as it is to maintain. After all, it was the shot in the arm strategy games needed, propagating a Pro League fervor beyond the Korean peninsula and turning humble mod roots into million-dollar events.

I approached Bloodsports.TV from a place of extreme cynicysm; there were, after all, only two people in the world who understood, appreciated and even loved Fatshark’s off beat, apocalyptic and charming Krater. Released too close to Diablo III for critics tiny minds to comprehend the game drew unfavourable comparisons to Blizzard’s epic series while sharing very little but an isometric perspective. The real comparison, and one I tried to hammer home to the enormity of a couple of hundred Twitter followers, was to DOTA and other games in the MOBA genre.
