Vainglory8 Autumn Recap: NA Split 2 Week 1

After a week off from Vainglory8 last weekend at Mobile Masters, the action is back for split two of Autumn Season. There is a lot at stake this split — one more spot left remains open to represent NA at the World Championships in Singapore. TSM enters the split with momentum on their side after finishing split one strong and winning both portions of the Mobile Masters. After seeing success earlier in the year, Cloud9 has already locked in a spot for Worlds. The other two teams that have a good shot at claiming the last spot to represent NA are Rogue and Nova eSports, who have both shown their talent last split. On the flip side, we will see if Tempo Storm and GankStars can put points on the board to avoid the Challenger Battles. In-between are Hammers and Tribe who have star-studded lineups, but have not quite reached their full potential.

Support Synergy: Baptiste the Voodoo Daddy

vainglory baptiste support synergy

Welcome back to the Support Synergy series! This series focuses on all of the different support heroes available in the Halcyon Fold, and which heroes to pair them with. In previous entries, we’ve looked at Fortress, Catherine, Ardan, Adagio, Phinn, Lyra, and Grace. Today, we’ll be analyzing Baptiste.

Captain Baptiste, or “Captiste,” has been catching on as a popular captain selection since the summer, due mainly to his heavy crowd control (CC) and flex pick nature. While Baptiste doesn’t have the same beefiness as other captain selections like Lance or Phinn, he has a unique and flexible enough ability kit to make him useful in many team compositions.

Codes of the Fold Volume 2: The Unwritten Laws of Vainglory

This is a continuation from volume 1 of the Unwritten Laws series. If you haven’t read it already, be sure to do so now!

51. When people sell their builds after a match, they are either salty they lost the game or are making sure their top secret, totally not meta build doesn’t get copied. (*cough* Weapon Lane Petal)
52. Vox never leaves the meta—he only takes an annual vacation.
53. When someone reaches Vainglorious Bronze for the first time, there will always be that one person who says, “Congrats! Now onto Vainglorious Gold? :p”
54. You never care about Great Karma until it is gone.
55. Everyone else’s 5 hero talent chests: 2-5 awesome Legendary talents. Raid Boss, Piercing Shot … you name it, they got it. Your 5 hero talent chest: Rare!
56. If the duo party doesn’t fill for the solo queuer, strife WILL follow.
57. Want to know what type of player your captain really is? Ping “We need vision!” —

  • A normal captain will pick up a few vision items.
  • A stubborn captain will ignore you.
  • A toxic captain will buy nothing but Scout Traps from then on.
  • A sassy captain will recommend that you buy a Contraption.

58. Saying “Hoi PBE pls!” doubles your chances of getting into the PBE. Developers HATE this awesome trick!
59. Getting AFK forgiveness for a match you were losing is like having the professor cancel class on a Monday morning—an overwhelming sense of relief.
60. People in solo queue always want to get their comfort picks, even if it means they will get hard countered for first picking Krul. It is okay because they are on their comfort pick and will carry! Always assume positive intent.
