Nexon’s Hyper Universe MOBA just rolled out a new ranked mode

Nexon has big plans for its MOBA Hyper Universe over 2018. The Korean giant – or rather, its super adorable disco dog – laid out its spring plans for the game this week. The big news is a brand-new ranked mode, with eight tiers to climb, a drafting system that lets you block specific characters you don’t want to play, a “true skill” system whereby failure loses you points, and special skin and nameplate rewards for victory.

Technically, the first season begins on February 22nd, but you can jump into the preseason to test it all out right now as long as your account is level 15 and you’ve got 12 toons unlocked. There’s also a new toon debuting this week: Captain Red, a hybrid specialist for both melee and ranged.

I’m gonna be honest: I’d rather hear patch notes read to me by a disco dog than by pretty much anyone else. That video is down below.

I will try this game because of Disco Dog. Any game/company with the chutzpah to roll that out deserves at least a little of my time.

Ok, i can live with the game itself, it’s fun, and not that demanding.

This trailer? My god, what the hell is this cringe?

I’ve been playing and I think it’s a fun game, but I also think the novelty will wear off on me eventually. I think it’s cool that the Hypers are all knockoffs of iconic characters from all over gaming, anime, and comic geekdom. It’s a much more appealing concept to me than Smite or even HotS. The thing that worries me is how little strategy it’s calling for when I play (I’ve got about 6 hours in the game). A game that’s easy to learn and easy to master is not going to last long.

Also, I usually don’t enjoy camp, but that trailer mostly works.

Pretty much. The game has come cool combos, but if it doesn’t develop a competitive ( and theorycraft ) scene fast, it’ll die quickly, because apparently is REALLY shallow.

That being said, i quite like the gameplay. It’s fun, and has some fightning game basis, so i think it can be done right.

Let’s hold and see.

Is the new mode a betting system were participants can guess how long until this new MOBA shuts down?

33 current viewers on twitch – that is across all streamers.

Middle of summer.

I have big plans for Nexon’s MOBA as well. I’m going to take a nap. Or maybe fix a sandwich. MOBAs are a dime a dozen and I haven’t seen one that doesn’t suck yet.

This game is actually fun. That’s all tho.
