Ok, you want an actual response?



Welcome to awesomenauts the platform moba.

The whole point of a moba is you go through the process of leveling your RPG character in a matter of minutes rather than a matter of weeks/months/years and start over at the end of every game.

That's what makes mobas fun, being able to grow faster than your opponents and then beating them with that lead.
There's absolutely Zork all you can do with 10 minutes.
The shorter you make the games, the less rewarding they feel. The whole concept of a moba revolves around the amount of time and effort you sink into it. The more you put in time and effort, the more rewarding the game feels to win (and the more unfun it feels to lose the game).


Now depending on the demographic you want to tinker with matchtimes. Dota decided to go for really long (45+ games) while more casual mobas like Nauts and Hots went for 20-25 minutes.
League is a middle ground at 25-35.

Making matchtime shorter would defeat the point of a moba.


Like I said before, if you want to play a 2D non-stop fighting game; go play super smash brothers.

I uh, think you got your answer here...

I got some low effort weakass responses, no real answers. It's a shame that so many of the REAL veterans don't post anymore (notice that these guys aren't veterans), I'd love to hear their input.

Playing since pc release, not a veteran :GnawCry:

I surely can't be called a veteran compared to your woderful 3k+ posts but let me just throw it on your face: nauts is already one of the fastest paced mobas and what comes with that, it has very short match times.

How do we even quantify veterans?

I bought Awesomenauts on May 4th, 2012: does that make me a veteran?

At any rate, no. I do not think we need shorter matches, nor do I think they would work particularly well (as was said with MOBA length).

the OP apparently is a joke of a veteran.
However, if all veterans are as equal as him, now I understand why the metric's meme has lasted that long.
