Why a Forgotten, Now-Unplayable MOBA Still Has a Small, Thriving Community

Master X Master was a few years late to the free-to-play MOBA game when it came out in 2017, but it had a bottle full of previously unimaginable, jaunty homemade sauce. The game made a splash onto the MOBA scene due to its unorthodox approach to almost all of the genre’s conventions. Instead of a lobby system where you’d sit in a queue waiting, there was an entire hub world where you could walk around as an in-game avatar version of your favourite character, chat with other players, and groove out to some exclusive tunes on the player-controlled jukebox.

Reading the title I literally thought this was going to be about Paragon. That shut down I think two years ago and still has an active community and ongoing efforts to revive the game with all the released assets.
