All of this reminds me of the little spat between Bethesda and Mojang when Notch tried making "Scrolls" and Beth told him he couldn't, because it had the word scrolls.Also, Action RTS sounds kind of meh as a genre. MOBA I think works better, but even then its still kind of bland.ARTS makes me think of a fast paced rts (to me, that'd be like sc2 or even the older command and conquers) and not so much of what Dota or LoL are

MOBA really doesn't tell me anything about the genre though. Disclaimer: I've never played DotA or anything like it. 'Action RTS' to me gives me something to compare it to, namely overhead-viewing RTS games, and probably focusing a lot less on resource gathering and base infrastructure. 'Multiplayer Online Battle Arena' doesn't give me anything to work with - that type of tag could easily be applied to most multiplayer games today across a wide range of genres, including fighting games and first person shooters.
