“Strife: S2 Games’ answer to the toxic MOBA”
Polygon

“STRIFE TAKES AIM AT DOTA 2 AND LOL”
IGN

“Strife is daring to make significant changes instead of just following the usual formula set by Dota 2 and LoL. It’s refreshing to see a new MOBA game escape the shadows of these two giants, and strive for innovation”

Strife on Steam Celebration!

To help celebrate the launch of Strife on Steam, we are unleashing 3 Steam-exclusive packs practically bursting with goodies!

Additionally, for the first week only, we will be offering a 10% early-bird discount on Steam purchases!

Don't want to buy anything? That's cool too! All Strife Heroes are free and they always will be! Strife is truly free-to-play.

About This Game

Enter the Hero

In Strife®, you will assume control of a powerful hero. Each hero is uniquely designed to embody a play-style or idea, and heroes are by far the most important aspect of any game of Strife. As a hero, you will decide how the game flows, how quickly it progresses, and whether the outcome is favourable for your team. All Strife heroes are freely available from your very first match!

Community First

How your fellow players behave matters a lot in online multiplayer games. Strife is designed from the ground up to encourage cooperation and reduce toxic conflicts.

Customize Your Armoury

Crafting enables you to change item components and recipes, allowing any item to be part of your arsenal.

Every Hero Needs a Sidekick

A Pet will accompany you onto the battlefield, offering you unique advantages. Play to unlock more pets to expand your options.

Shared Last Hit Gold

Fight your opponents, not your allies. Last Hit bounties obtained from brawler and hero kills are split between contributing teammates.

Out of Combat Regeneration

Staying out of combat for a short period of time will significantly increase your Health and Mana regeneration, allowing you to stay near the action instead of going back to base.

Personal Courier

Each player has an invulnerable personal courier to automatically deliver purchased items.

Strife is the first MOBA that's clicked with me.

I tried LoL, Dota, and a few others (I'm looking at you, Infinite Crisis), but I just couldn't get into them. Learning how to play so many characters, memorize so many items, and deal with toxic communities that aren't welcoming to new players turned me off to the genre. Thankfully, Strife is different.

The traditional MOBA gameplay is there, but it's much easier to grasp, learn, and enjoy than any of the other MOBA's I've tried. While some of the other games in the genre might have more depth, Strife is a much better entry for newcomers to the genre. It teaches you the rules in a fun and interesting way, the characters are easier to play and wield effectively, and it has a slight sense of humor that I haven't seen in other MOBA's.

The only real downside I've found in my nearly 10 hours with the game? The community seems to be practically non-existent. I've been primarily playing matches against the computer, which is still fun, but I wish there were more active players so that I could really get into this community.

The game is free (which is always nice), so you really have nothing to lose by downloading it and giving it a shot.

This game is a tutorial after you play anyother moba's. Its very awesome game.
The Items Confuses me sometimes cause it has Mixed AP Damage and AD Damage.
With the Mix damage you might as well build full damage because you can negate
Armor and Resistance at the same time.

But the Heroes are so damn Awesome. The characters has some unique, fun, and Complex game style .
I know some Heroes relates to some characters in Dota 2 nor LoL but it is still fun.
There stats is kinda confusing as well... ( FIX THAT WITH THE ITEMS )

And finnaly the Lore Mini-Games and the Map. Having a Mini-Game to know about is damn Amazing.
The map is kinda'' a bit small. ;3 Well gameplay matters anyways. And I LOVE IT!
THUMBS UP FOR STRIFE.

More people need to get into this game, it's a very simple ( And extreamly fun ) MOBA. One of the very few which are nice and friendly to new players to any MOBAs out there. It teaches the basics and has champions for basics as well as champs for the more experienced people. Honestly I'd play this game so much more but alas. There just aren't enough people and we need more people in STRIFE!

i absolutely love this game. This game was what taught me everything about mobs i now know. the complexitiy of Dota2 and League of Legends was too much for me to begin with. I can now play any moba i want as an average-ish player. Without this game and Heroes of The Storm i would never have gotten into mobas (i love them now!)

I haven't played this game for months now but I loved it, best MOBA out there this and DOta 2 of course (screw league) I wonder though if the devs stopped updating it? because I haven't seen any updates from this since idk when. I still recommend this 100%, I had so much fun me and my gf, casual friendly and non-toxic playstyle. I will download again when I upgrade this toaster (I was also busy with the mmo life that I couldn't play this :( its a tough life being an MMO guy)

But I will definetly play this again over other games if they decide to keep developing stuff and characters (more monsters please!)

If you've never played any MOBAs, this one is a good place to start. Very starter-friendly, and the visuals are colorful and nice.
