About this project

 

What is and how was MOBA WARS born?

MOBA WARS is born with the idea to create a "bridge” between two gaming worlds, computer games and board games.

MOBA WARS is a new boardgame, set in Entroperyha, a world, in which powerful heroes that fight amongst each other to determine the fate of the kingdoms.

The game system will be the one that gives name to the game MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, obviously MOBA WARS isn't online, it's a board game).

For those of you who are unaware of this system, the players take part confronted on two factions, both have the same goal, to destroy the enemy's Core (their base). To do that, the heroes will be supported on both factions by some determined beings called minions. Each hero has a set of skills that makes them unique and different one from another.

Choose the 5 heroes that will accompany you on your adventure, learn their abilities and how they can help you to defeat your opponent at the Death Hills



 Note for backers: The English translation of the game will be done by native translators.

(Moba wars is from 2 to 10 players)

 ("This is not Méric" is a miniature with a comical skin over the hero Meric, that is already included in the full pack).

Note for backers (1): If you wish to acquire an addon just add to your pledge the corresponding amount. Once the campaign has ended we will ask you the exact addons you want through our pledge manager.

Note for backers (2): We seek funding to be able to make this project, we are not a big company, and we depend on contracting design studios, layout artists, translators, etc. Therefore we are using a "crowdfunding" to finance MOBA WARS. The information shown here must only be taken as an idea of how the final project is going to be. All the companies we will contract after funding the project are of the finest and renown of the industry. The final game art will be made by RN Studio ad Biticol Studio. This art is created so people can get an idea. This is a crowdfunding and we need the financing in order to be able to make the game as it will be published. The final project will have the best results of the best professional quality.

Minions (+Lore)

There is no information about these creatures. At first sight the look like clones. The investigations carried out by Dr. Diëter-Dinhër confirm that they are inert being, nor alive, nor dead. The life essentials they carry inside gives them a sort of intelligence. Their programming is simple. Advance and destroy. They are equipped with diverse type of weaponry. Once the battle ends, they are absorbed by the Death Hills and regenerate in their corresponding Core.

Monsters (+Lore)

The monsters that “live” in MOBA WARS, are a sort of lost souls, as noted down in The Diary. These creatures, once destroyed, revive over and over again due to the programming error that dragged down all living creatures of the area millennia ago. All these creatures are un-dead.

Death Hills 

It's the legacy of the Ancient Ones. An already extinct society that lived on Entroperyha thousands of years ago. On this battlefield, discovered by Dr. Dietër-Dinhër two confronted kingdoms put and end to the massacres that had been happening during the war.

Along the board that the heroes will cross, they will also encounter neutral monsters, lost souls that wander over Entroperhya resurrecting over and over again, Vampire Bats, Spectral Wolves, Giant Ghouls...  



Structures

As for the structures you will find, there a two types, Towers and the Core.
The Towers are the defensive structures that will be in charge of stopping in great part the enemy and minion's advance. 

The Core is the heart of the players, it bestows the lost technology of the Ancient Ones, a technology with which it is possible to make fighting at the Death Hills a reality. Its loss will cause defeat.


 We will be adding more game mechanics soon

Rewards shipped to backers in USA, Canada, European Union and China are shipped from within those regions, and will not pay extra customs charges.


All pledges (Add-ons and "SG" included in only one pledge)

At the end of the campaign, always with your consentment, we will try to get in touch with you so that you can share the shipping fees.

We will also announce several shops at which you can collect your package if you wish so, without paying shipping fees.

Shipping to the following countries, as a rough estimate, will cost about:

* USA (except Hawaii & Alaska): 19€ (Approx. $21,10 or £14,60) .

* Canada: 21€ (Approx. $23,40 or £16,10).

* Occidental EU (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden): 13€ (Approx. $14,50 or £10,00) .

*Spain: 11€ (Approx)

* Rest of the EU countries: 16€ (Approx. $17,80 or £12,30).

* Rest of the world: 50€ (Approx. $55,70 or £38,50).

* Apprx.


Risks and challenges

The biggest risk has been and is bearing with the expenses up till now (illustrator, typesetter, designer, 3D modeller, translator, advertising...). Competing against consolidated companies of the sector is risky. But after 130 test games and many surveys, we decided it was worth the while taking the risk.

We have managed to design 18 heroes, all the minions, web structures, typesetting, rule book translation, 3D designs, the board, hero tokens, dice...

The toughest challenge has been to find a commercial price for the competitive backers, with an excellent quality/price ratio.

MOBA WARS is a fairly large game, so, if we add up that to offer a lower cost to backers, we must purchase at the factory, packs by the thousand, this is, 1000 Basic Packs, and 1000 Upgrade Packs.

After many negotiations with companies from different countries, we have managed to get the final price down considerably. We have managed to get financed at the factory a 30% of the making costs of 2000 packs without interest.

So we can say that we have already advance quite a bit. We are sure that with your support, we will be able to fund and create a very good community.

Delays in the shipping: as above, the delays in shipping do not depend on us. To minimize shipping delays, we have decided to work with highly-established freight and shipping companies.
