You know the saying about how every cloud has a silver lining? Well, that's pretty much the case with Arena of Valor. If you remember, we were expecting the game to launch in the US this month, but, unfortunately, Tencent had to push the game back to 2018 in order to polish it and add new gameplay and social features. The delay is pretty unfortunate, especially since I know many of you were anxiously waiting to get your hands on what appears to be a great MOBA game with a ton of fun heroes. However, there is a bit of a silver lining here; to make up for the delay and for forcing players to wait for months before getting their hands on the game, Tencent is improving its pre-registration rewards.

Specifically, those already pre-registered will get the Fright Circus Mganga skin, and the longer they have to wait for release, the more rewards they'll get. Those additional rewards might include the Sailor Butterfly skin, an Azzen'ka hero unlock, and a Taara hero unlock. So, the earlier you pre-register, the more rewards you'll get. Patience is the word, then, and make sure to head over here and pre-register.

    They’re going to have an uphill battle against the likes of Vainglory. They’re not really helping themselves out here.

        I feel the same way. Both different but I've been playing aov a lot more. Just waiting for 5v5 vg to see if that tickles my fancy.

        I haven’t played it yet. Actually just came out for NA regions so I’ll be trying it out soon. Thing is people like the tap and go of Vainglory. Seems to be tailored more for the hardcore and esport scene. I liked mobile legends enough and was waiting on this game since people say it’s much more polished and owns riot anyway.

    Don’t be fooled by by their PR lies. The reason it is pushed back to 2018 is because they have made a deal with Nintendo for the switch. They want to be able to make money on that platform before they release on mobile as the mobile scene will overtake the switch scene and they know it. It’s very atypical of companies to do this type of thing. We have seen it all to much. It’s stupid they would lie about the reason for the pushback

    The game is decent but unfortunately mobile legends and heroes evolved beat them to the us. They will not see as much a fan base as they would overseas.take vg into account and you can guarantee I won't still around for so long. Everyone sucks in this game lol.

    They won't allow server changes either, which is rather annoying for me as I am moving soon. I feel like I've wasted my money cuz of that. It's not a different procedure, other games like it allow this.

    The pushback will just push away the fanbase
