Master X Master or MxM is a MOBA game developed and published by NCSoft. The company is well known for MMORPG titles such as Lineage, Blade and Soul, Guild Wars and Aion. This new game represents NCSoft's dive into the action strategy genre. Developers were well aware that they had to come up with a unique gameplay to turn players attention away from traditional MOBAs like DotA2 and League of Legends. The solution is the one of a kind tag system. Master X Master has a mechanic that permits users to control two characters and to switch between them at any time. The hero roster is another important feature. Master X Master has more than 30 playable champions. Some are popular characters imported from other NCSoft titles.
The action label comes from the mechanic that enables characters to jump and dodge. Most MOBA games have point and click character movement. Players click on the ground and the character moves to that spot. Master X Master allows players to make their heroes jump over obstacles and to dodge attacks. This feature transforms classic battles into fast paced engaging action confrontations. The RPG character system is revised as well. Master X Master heroes are called Masters. Players are put in control of two heroes. Character switching is allowed during combat so players can change their role and play style by easily selecting another Master. Hero swapping is not instant, players will have to wait 10 seconds for the switch. This mechanic was designed with strategy in mind. Players will have to think ahead and carefully plan the swap. Character switching is not meant to offer players an easy way out of difficult situations but to provide a series of strategic options. Master X Master has at least 30 different heroes with unique battle skills. There are strong tank like champions, deadly assassins and ranged fighters.
In a traditional MOBA game players equip their heroes with gear during a match. Master X Master replaces this system with its dual master mechanic. The title offers both PvE and PvP content. There are multiple PvE activities that allow players to train or to play against bots. A special Master X Master mode requires players to team up against the AI. This mode is similar to dungeons in MMO games where players work together to defeat powerful mobs. PvP battlegrounds give players the opportunity to clash in an epic match. Maps with unique landscape provide good battleground variation. Master X Master adventures take place in a futuristic setting created with sci fi graphics.
