What MOBAs, MMOs, and fighting games all have in common

Gamesradar: Now is not the time for development studios to venture into the MOBA market. Yes, League of Legends is the most popular video game in the world. Yes, Dota 2 is consistently the most-played game on Steam. Yes, the free-to-play model provides massive dividends when implemented smartly. But the leaders of the genre have already been established, and no knock-off can sustain itself the way LoL and Dota 2 have. It's a lesson that other genres of game development had to learn the hard way in the years leading up to today: good luck unseating the market leader.
