Even the netcode's been golden. Dropped matches haven't been an issue and my ping rate has always stayed well within an acceptable range. When I played the game during the first Switch beta test, I said Tencent Games wasn’t screwing around. It still isn’t. This is the absolute premier way to play the game. Arena of Valor may have been born on mobile, but on Switch is where it feels at home.
Tencent is hoping Arena of Valor’s new console port will bring its eSports success on mobile to Nintendo Switch, and with a solid netcode, an accessible and enjoyable take on the MOBA template and a free-to-play model, there’s no reason it can’t achieve that goal in the months (and years) to come. While it does have a few technical issues at launch, they don't detract from the fact Nintendo Switch now has a proper MOBA to add to its library of supported genres.
Aesthetics aside, Arena of Valor sets a very high bar for MOBAs on consoles with its easy control scheme and competitive gameplay. This is as close to the authentic LoL/DOTA 2 experience as a home console has gotten so far, and I’m excited to see the game grow and prosper on the Switch. The MOBA might have found a new home on the Nintendo Switch, and Arena of Valor started it all.
