Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too.

Easily Add Rich Android Wear Notifications to Your App
2014 is certainly shaping up to be the year of the wearables. Looking back at this year’s CES tradeshow more than confirms this. But although there are several fantastic wearable platforms either available now or looming on the horizon, most Android fans have their eyes firmly set on one class of devices: Android Wear. While there are still certain questions about Wear that remain, one thing is clear: Wear’s Android core will make it easy for developers to integrate the platform into existing Android applications.
One key function that many developers will want to implement with Wear is rich notification support. Naturally, the Android notification shade only provides a limited amount of space to display each notification. Thus, there’s only a limited amount of information that each notification can display. To get more information related to the notification, users currently have to enter the application by tapping on the notification. Using Wear, however, you can display more information pertaining to each notification, and even add actions that can be executed directly from your wrist.
So how do you enable this even richer notification support enabled by Wear? Good question—so good, in fact, that Google decided to create a simple, yet thorough tutorial that shows you how to use familiar notification APIs to display richer content on Wear, as well as provide your users with possible actions.
