Paladins is going to be more MOBA, less CCG

It looks like the Paladins: Champions of the Realm closed beta test has brought quite some interesting feedback to Hi-Rez Studios, according to a recent interview. Touted as a shooter with card game elements that would unlock character abilities, Paladins may now take a different route as testers have clearly expressed they prefer a more MOBA-like approach, with more characters with iconic identities and less variation. Think SMITE, I guess.

While Paladins began as a design similar to Team Fortress 2 or Global Agenda, with few characters, then MOBAs became very popular and now everyone seems to prefer that approach – more characters with unique style and less personalization.
