“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.

I adore this game, I really do, but a community is literally what makes a MOBA live. The playerbase for this game is virtually non-existent, and it pains me to down-vote this game, as I truly do enjoy playing this more than League, or Dota, or Smite, or anything else. Definitely my favorite MOBA, but it's almost impossible to play. What a shame.

This game was extremely fun, HOWEVER, due to the lower then existant playerbase finding a game is like watching a full bottle of malasis pour out till its empty.Its a downvote for me. The developers have moved on from this game completely. The top players are usually the same every "season" because of how small the amount that play it. If literally EVERYONE moved from League went to this then it would be better because seriously this right here was a VERY upgraded LoL. Better teamfights. Similar characters (to a point) similar map (cause its a moba >.>) and some very OP steep learning curve characters. There OP when you learn how to properaly use them and require a bit of skill usually. 400+ hours into this game but i hate what it has become. A just about Dead under rated game. If the developers hadn't quit on it. Im sure this would be the new LoL by a very very long shot. ;( RIP THIS GAME

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.
