Community Highlights
Do you think another MOBA will challenge League of Legends?
by XD_Jordan_XD
League of Legends has ruled the MOBA-sphere since its release and it seems like nothing has come close to challenging the beast. Raptr member XD Jordan XD believes that eSports have elevated Riot’s game to such a height that no other MOBA can knock it down. Do you share the same sentiments?

Warframe: Your opinion on new update and Melee 2.0 by animaster
Warframe’s latest update just released and includes “Melee 2.0,” which brings more entertainment and incentive to use melee weapons. Raptr member animaster wants to know, what are your thoughts on Warframe’s updates?

PlanetSide 2: Pay to win knife? by Zubito
Raptr member Zubito speculates on possible upcoming changes to knives in PlanetSide 2 and SOE may look to extract cash from players hoping to remain at their current level of close-quarter effectiveness. It’s not set in stone yet, but Zubito wants to know how you feel about this speculation.

Do you hide your nerd side? by Simplicit
While Raptr member Simplicit isn’t ashamed to show off her nerdiness, she has noticed people straying away from doing things like posting screenshots of their Guild Wars 2 gaming habits and talking about pop culture in general. She’s curious to know, do you have two personalities when it comes to your online gaming life and real life, or do you just not care?
