Aspiring game critic. I have a very poor sense of humor, so I may be too serious too often.

A MOBA is more than just multiple classes with three abilities. My Destiny comparison was sarcasm.

Games like Mass Effect 3's MP have done similar in the past and weren't considered MOBA's. MOBA's involve attacking structures, leveling up in the game, and only in the game, minions, and other kinds of in-match on a match-by-match basis character building.

Literally the only comparison Overwatch has to a MOBA is the ability stuff and that's something that never was and never will be specific to a MOBA game.

Overwatch is not a MOBA, it is a class-based FPS.

It does, just on a much smaller scale.

Each class/sub-class has three distinct powers with different utilities. A grenade, a melee, and an ult. And the utility of the grenades and melee all differ.

>>#1948460, It's also pretty massive, multiplayer, and online.
It's also strategy in real time.

So in short, it's a MOBAMMORTSFPS, if you want to use the acronyms in a literal sense

Hi, Alex. And yes, Qrow is great. What'd you think of it otherwise? Other chars you liked? Gonna be seeing more? Have a waifu?

Yeahhhh I'll be watchin more

Ummmm lets see. I learned to like Ruby and most of the main characters. Jaune was one of my favs but he wasnt in s3 that much. The fight scene with the trumpet guy and chick on roller skates was my favorite mainly because of the music. Emeralds my waifu, but janey and els.anna think I have **** taste

I dislike Emerald on the basis she isn't much more aside from Plot Device the Character. It doesn't make any of the stuff the villains pulled off that clever, and makes you wonder if they could've done even dumber stuff with it. Her power seems incredibly over powered so I don't like her due to that. She really doesn't seem very interesting either.

But yeah, S3 neglected a lot of side chars, but I'm sure they'll make up for it in S4 considering the set-up.

I'd only go with friends, and I think they already saw it while I was busy with finals.

I'm not super interested in the marvelverse anymore so I probably won't until it's out for download and I'm pressured to watch it before the next marvel movie

I've been feeling depressed the past month or so, and its been really getting to me. So I figured I'd let all my favorite people know how much they really mean to me

Josh, thanks for starting to talk to me more the past few months. I'm sorry I've been quiet lately, I've been in a huge slump from stress and the big move going on and I want to let you know that you still mean a great bunch to me as a friend

Happily. Was just thinking the other day how much I like hanging out with you. You're funny, and we have a fun chemistry. Our banter about the souls game is hilarious and fun. So it's a good time. You're a good time.

We'll call again soon I'm sure. With the group, too. Have some good ol' times. Summer's coming after all. Plenty of free time to kill together.

A few things

You like to tangent a lot, and fluff your writing with a lot of metaphors. Your instincts are right in telling you that just saying things is boring, but sometimes you go too far in the other direction. Like the paragraph about the sun and the moon? It's nonsense. Maybe could work in another place or another piece, but in the context its in now, it's just nonsense.

There are times when you just need to reel yourself back, because the sentences become so long and the ideas so stretched out it can be easy to get lost. There's some good imagery and word usage here, it just needs to be broken up a bit more. It helps the audience process what you're trying to show. If you get too long winded or overly archaic with it, it starts to feel artificial and just as boring as just saying "it was sunrise."

There are moments, too, which I think you're too telling though. Like "the boy's face reddened from the insult," you don't need to say all of that. Just give the expression and reaction. It should be enough.

To give you an idea on how I felt while reading, I kinda said to myself "okay, something is finally happening" when they started calling about the invasion.

Some of the world building set-up is good, but some of it should be cut down or moved to other places. The best way to set up a world is to do it as the story goes on. After all, I won't give a **** about your world until there are things in it I care about- your characters. When more things happen and I'm more into their plight, then try and dip in more world building stuff. Doing it all upfront is a pretty Tolkien way to do it, and frankly **** him.

He builds an amazing world, but tells a boring story. You're here to tell a story in your world. So inform the reader as necessary when it's relevant, but in between keep it focused on characters and conflict.

But with that all said, I'm not suggesting cutting all the stuff out in the beginning, because it does well in some other things. It establishes tone, and slowly gets you immersed. I'd just encourage you to try and do this in a more active way. You told us about these tribes, how about seeing them a bit more in action before the actual action starts. Introduce characters, get the audience to know them and cozy with their environment. Then throw a wrench in things.

Anyway, with all of that said, these are obviously just suggestions. Take them or leave them.

Texting people while also waiting for dinner. Gonna be an hour or so still, but that's okay. I also have a very short paper to work on, but short and easy means I can procrastinate, so procrastinate I will. Just a bit anyway.
