Heroes of Order & Chaos is here for iOS & Android!

The wait is over MOBA fans! Heroes of Order & Chaos is now available on iPhone, iPad, AND Android! We wanted to thank you for your patience and enthusiasm for the first MOBA on mobile with a behind the scenes look at Heroes of O&C with the game’s Product Manager, Cyril Rozier. Cyril is known around the Gameloft Offices as a HUGE MOBA fan! We hope you enjoy our interview and let us know what you think of the game in the comments.

What is your name and role at Gameloft?
I’m Cyril Rozier, Product Manager for Heroes of Order & Chaos

Are you personally a MOBA fan?
YES! I play MOBA games eeeeevery day. In fact, I think its part of the reason I was hired at Gameloft, because I could help make Heroes of Order & Chaos a great success!

Some of our readers aren’t very familiar with the MOBA genre. Can you give some background?
Sure! The MOBA genre comes from a Warcraft 3 mod called Defense of the Ancients (DoTA), which defined the genre and set the rules and characteristics of MOBAs. The goal of all MOBA games is destroying the enemy base on the other side of the map. The games are played cooperatively in a team, either in 5v5 or 3v3. In 5v5 games, there are three lanes that players can take to advance to the other team’s base. In 3v3 matches, there are usually only one or two lanes. The lanes are filled with towers that attack enemies and there are NPC characters that attack as well. A layman comparison could be a online multiplayer core tower defense.

How is Heroes of Order & Chaos different than other MOBA games?
With Heroes of Order & Chaos, we wanted to make the perfect MOBA for mobile devices. MOBAs were born on PC, so before now they were designed for a mouse/keyboard. We put a lot of work into perfecting the gameplay on a touch screen.

We also made some tweaks to the traditional MOBA maps to increase the pace of each game. We added teleports so players can move quickly from the bottom lane to top lane. Our 3v3 map is totally original with an “All mid” concept and is really different from the 3v3 map on other MOBA games as it has only one lane and a huge part dedicated to jungle. Overall, we made the game a lot faster, to meet the play style of mobile gamers. Games should last around 15-30 min instead of the 30-60 min games on PC.

Any additional differences, maybe for the core MOBA fans out there?
Yes! I could go on forever. But here are some important notes:

In Heroes of Order & Chaos, it’s not possible to deny (meaning killing your own neutral monster to prevent your opponent from gaining gold and experience). This makes the game more welcoming for new players, and also more compatible with the smaller screen experience.

Basic stats are not based on Strength/Agility/Intelligence (like in many other MOBAs) but on ratios Physical attack/Magical attack/ Movement Speed/Attack Speed. Also, in Heroes of Order & Chaos, skills are the main source of damage.

The team, myself included, are BIG MOBA fans. We’ve tried to include all the best ideas from the genre and make the ultimate MOBA for mobile.

Now, some hard questions… The servers weren’t working properly at launch. Can you comment?
The demand outpaced out expectations and our servers weren’t up to the task for the first few days. We’ve been working to fix this as a top priority. We’re fixing the issues with the current server and soon will be migrating to a dedicated server. This shouldn’t be an issue in the near future. Sorry to all our fans who have had issues.

What caused the delay on Android?
The Android version of the game was actually ready for launch day. We promised a simultaneous launch for this title, and we meant it. The game went live on the App Store first and immediately it was clear that there was an issue with the server. This is why the Android version of the game was delayed. Releasing the Android version last week would have only compounded the problem and caused a bigger delay for everyone. Thank you for your patience.

What’s in store for the future?
Can’t share much for now. I can say that we have lots planned for future updates, and will be paying close attention to your comments to make the game even better. Please leave comments here on the Gameloft blog or on the official Heroes of Order & Chaos website: www.Gameloft.com/HOC

    I sincerely love gafleomt for making my favorite games for iphone so i can play on the go. But i've always wondered how come you guy can't get sued for making clones of some famed games.How did you manage to make clone games of a large company like blizzard without getting sued. i dont want to sound mean but games like order and chaos online, starfront, and dungeon hunter are clones of world of warcraft, starcraft and diablo. (ex.eternal legacy=final fantasy, gt academy= gran turismo..

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
