8. Smite

Smite's gameplay is revolutionary within the MOBA genre.

Smite is an oddball on the stage of E-sports because its gameplay is vastly different from that of the rest. Storming onto the scene in 2014, it skyrocketed in popularity by taking a risk in delivering a 3rd person MOBA. This concept was new and well received by the community.

Boom, baby!

The risk paid off; SMITE tournaments have paid out $1,592,692.04 in 2016, according to Esports Earnings.
