Hot off the recent news of Ranked Play Draft Mode, the folks over at Super Evil Megacorp have announced even more news concerning their mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free]...

Even though Vainglory [Free] has seen its share of tournaments and competitions since its launch last year, one thing it has been strangely missing is a built-in Draft mode for true tournament play. That changes with Version 1.14 with a significant revamping of Ranked play...




After spending the last two weeks with Vainglory’s [Free] newest hero, Reim, I have to say that he’s had the most challenging difficulty curve of any hero that I’ve written a guide for. With high-damage moves dependent on timing, sustain reliant on landing said moves, and middle of the road mobility, I found that Reim requires a player that will give him a lot of attention. However, with proper training (perhaps starting with our guide below), he has the potential to be a high end jungle front liner for any team down the stretch...

As we alluded to earlier in the week, the folks over at Super Evil Megacorp have officially launched their second season of content with the launch of Reim as well as a host of other changes in Version 1.13 that hit their mobile MOBA Vainglory [Free] earlier today...

In its latest Friday developer stream, the folks over at Super Evil Megacorp took the wraps off the latest additions to its mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free]...

I’ve been a pretty big fan of all the recent heroes that have debuted on Super Evil Megacorp’s Vainglory [Free]. However, I get particularly excited whenever there’s a new ranged hero designed for lane play. Kestrel is the latest hero to enter the Halcyon Fold in that role and I was pretty excited to check her out. After some extended play I’m also pleased to say that she’s an excellent addition to the slowly expanding lineup in the popular mobile MOBA. Now that she’s out of her week-long ICE exclusivity period we figured we’d launch our usual beginner’s guide for players that are trying to decide if she’s worth the investment...

The folks at Super Evil Megacorp appear to be ramping up their hero development cycle as the hit mobile MOBA Vainglory [Free] has a new hero to check out less than a month after its last hero hit the Halcyon Fold. This time it’s the Stormguard archer Kestrel that makes her debut. ..

This month’s heroic addition to Vainglory [Free], like most of the heroes that have come to the Halcyon Fold before, adds an interesting twist to the dynamic of the hit mobile MOBA. Blackfeather is also a blast to play and has the potential to do some serious damage in the hands of players that know how to use him. Alas, before one can get to that point, it’s important to understand what exactly he brings to the table. Enter our beginner’s guide, in which we provide a brief introduction to Blackfeather his abilities and some potential builds for making him work in-game...

We last reported on Super Evil Megacorp’s mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free], receiving some pretty cool features (as well as skins) with an early November update. Not to be outdone with that update, the MOBA developers have released a second update in the same month, this time launching a new hero, making the requisite balance changes, and debuting some pretty cool queue features...

If you’ve been following Vainglory’s [Freeweekly streams, you’ve probably heard already about some of the changes previewed in version 1.10. For the rest of us, the update has finally hit the App Store and with it comes some welcome bug fixes as well as some great changes to the guild system...

In addition to the awesome Guild/Team additions as well as the Halloween map skin, Version 1.9 of Super Evil Megacorp’s mobile MOBA Vainglory [Free] also saw the debut of Phinn, the latest hero to enter the Halcyon Fold. It’s always nice to see a new Support character and like all the other heroes, Phinn has some pretty crazy tricks up his sleeve. If you’re interested in seeing how Phinn plays within the meta, read on as we offer a beginner’s guide...

The VainGlory [Free] version 1.9 update is out now, and boy howdy new character Phinn looks like a killer. This aquatic maniac is going to be their first hero with a pull mechanic. Much like Pudge in Dota or Blitzcrank in League of Legends, Phinn is going to be the guy who drags his enemies back into the fray. ..

During the weekend at TwitchCon, Super Evil Megacorp held a few streams regarding its mobile MOBA Vainglory and its upcoming additions that will launch with its Version 1.9 Update. Some of them, like Seasons mode, have already been discussed at length, but there were a few cool new announcements, such as the debut of limited-time skins and even a seasonal map overlay that will debut (and most likely last) through the first Season of play...

Good news, everyone: Spacetime Studios' speed MOBA Call of Champions [Free], which we've previewed at various points this year, at both GDC and when the beta opened up, is now out worldwide ahead of the normal Thursday launch date. The game uses 5-minute matches to allow you to play quick MOBA matches from anywhere, perfectly playable over wi-fi and cellular using technology Spacetime has developed over the last few years. Games are decided not only by destroying the enemy base, but by towers destroyed and then by kills if time runs out and there are any ties. It's a fun distillation of the overall MOBA experience, just whittled down into mobile-friendly chunks...

A Beginner’s Guide to Skye, the latest 'Vainglory' Hero

It feels like it’s been forever since Super Evil Megacorp released a new hero for its mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free] (in all reality it’s only been two months). Thankfully, that all changed with the launch of Version 1.8, which brought with it the debut of Skye, the latest hero to hit the Halcyon Fold. While she’s pretty difficult to use, she also has the capability to be an incredibly rewarding addition to any team. We’ve been putting her through her paces during this ICE-only launch week and have compiled beginner’s guide for folks wondering if she’s right for them...

Fans of Super Evil Megacorp’s mobile MOBA, Vainglory [Free], will be happy to hear that Version 1.8 featuring the newest heroine Skye has finally launched. While the new character is certainly the biggest feature of the update, there are also a bunch of other changes that are worth discussion...

As we reported earlier, Super Evil Megacorp’s latest update to its mobile MOBA brought a host of changes to the game. Probably one of the biggest additions to Vainglory [Free] was the launch of the newest hero, Rona. As is the case with all new hero debuts in Vainglory, there are some pretty cool new intricacies in how to use her. We’ve been playing many a game with her since the update and have a few beginner tips to help succeed...

While folks in certain regions are eagerly waiting for Super Evil Megacorp’s Vainglory [Free] to launch worldwide (along with Android support) on July 2nd, those of us that can already enjoy the mobile MOBA can also check out the game’s newest update a little early.  Version 1.6 not only adds a new hero, but also adds a few welcome additions to player queueing along with added card collecting methods...
