Since winning Techcrunch 2016, Mobalytics has become a mainstay in the competitive gaming world as one of the go-to Desktop Apps.
After starting with League of Legends as its foundation, it has since expanded to other Riot Games like Teamfight Tactics and VALORANT, along with non-Riot titles like Lost Ark.
In this review, we’ll take a look at its core features for LoL and what makes it different than its competitors.
What is Mobalytics?
The platform is designed to help gamers of all skill levels improve and rise in ranks as a result.
Most Mobalytics features are free, but there is a premium version called Plus that unlocks additional features for hardcore players.
From a fundamental level, Mobalytics offers the standard tools every League of Legends player needs, such as the Champion Builds, In-Game Overlay, and Profile.
It has a seamless experience that guides you before, during, and after your games.
With over 160 champions in League, how to build your champ is necessary for any player to achieve mastery.
Before a League player’s match, Mobalytics provides recommendations for item build paths, runes, and skill order that are analyzed from game data collected from around the world.
Beginners can choose to automatically import the most popular or highest win rate builds, while veterans can access a wide range of filters to focus their needs.
Once a League player enters a match, the in-game overlay instantly activates like Ironman’s J.A.R.V.I.S. AI.
The overlay has many different tools, ranging from timers for Summoner Spells and jungle camps to champion advice for specific role vs role matchups.
Players can customize their widgets by resizing them, repositioning them, and even setting opacity.
This is one of the most powerful tools Mobalytics offers and it even has some unique offerings that its competitors don’t have, such as being able to track gold leads across the map, similar to what you’d see on a pro game broadcast.
Profile and Match History
After their match, Mobalytics provides players with a Post Game report with detailed stats and graphs from their game.
To see the long term trends of their play, each Post Game is viewable in the player profile which has their Match History.
Within the Match History, a League player can find their LP graph, champion usage stats, and even a calendar that measures their play across the month (for example, this allows you to understand if you play better on a Monday or Friday).
What Makes It Different
Although the core features of Mobalytics do have some differences from their competitor counterparts, Mobalytics offers some unique features that you cannot find anywhere else.
Gamer Performance Index (GPI)
The Gamer Performance Index, also known as the GPI, really sets Mobalytics apart in terms of the depth it allows players to explore their stats.
The feature crunches all of a player’s matches and analyzes them according to eight skills: Aggression, Consistency, Farming, Fighting, Objectives, Survivability, Versatility, and Vision.
Within each skill are subcategories and submetrics – for example, within Farming, you’ll find Early Game Farming which in turn, is comprised of [email protected], Farm Efficiency, and Time to First Item.
Since the eight GPI skills are illustrated as a graphic, a League player can understand their strengths and weaknesses in an objective way.
Once a player knows their strengths and weaknesses, Mobalytics offers Challenges that offer in-game goals to help them improve a particular skill.
For example, if a player has trouble with Suvrviability, they may be tasked to limit their deaths to 3 or less. If the player is able to complete the goal in three out of five games, they will complete the Challenge and be given more goals that scale with difficulty accordingly.
This unique tool basically acts like a coach since it identifies the skills that need the most improvement and shows you what to focus on from a game-by-game basis.
Although other platforms provide a Post Game report, Mobalytics goes further by offering Smart Highlights, basically a series of clips from a League player’s game that showcases their best and worst moments.
Sometimes a League player’s perception can conflict with what’s actually happening in reality. By providing an instant replay with stats and context explanations, a player can objectively understand the positive or negative impact a play had.
These clips are saved in a library so a player can easily review them or share them to friends.
Throughout the years, Mobalytics has continued to set itself apart from the rest of the crowd and consistently improve.
It improves upon the standard core features League players expect while also providing a wide range of unique offerings that no other platforms provide.
We recommend trying it out during the Preseason to really hit the ground running in Season 13 if your goals are to improve or climb.
