I don't know if this game is any good or not, but I just found it and it looks vaguely reminiscent of UT.

I also just tried Paladins. And... it's not exciting. It appears to be a lesser cousin of Overwatch, which I haven't played yet.

There seem to be a lot of FPS moba-style games recently. SMITE (which is an ok game) did this about 5 years ago.

Unfortunately, it's still not UT. UT had large maps, long matches, and lots of strategy. Your enemies were people.

In these new games, they've sucked all the depth out of the game in favor of bite-sized spastic dogpiles. Small maps, very short matches, very little strategy. Your enemies are the various built-in characters, not the people behind them. Even in WoW, you sometimes learned specific opponents by name.

Paladins also has a tedious card acquisition system that you have to learn to improve each character. And you have to slowly earn or buy characters, and learn each one, and learn how to defend against each one. I'm guessing Overwatch has a similar system.

Fortunately, it makes getting actual real work done more appealing.

I do really have to recommend Overwatch -- It has a ton of depth, each character has little niche tricks to learn and teamwork is everything.
Plus, there's something for everyone -- There's builders, snipers, flankers, tanks, etc. I bet all of you would pick it up pretty quickly, if I remember how good everyone was at UT.
