This week in Vainglory News, we have Scarecrow Baptiste, a bundle of Lyra skins, a new item teaser video, Churnwalker lore, news about the World’s tournament and 5V5 debut, information regarding East Asia’s Vainglory8 tournament, stellar community content, and a milestone for us here at Broken Myth. Read on to see what you’ve missed this past week in Vainglory News!
Support staff: the unseen hands that toil backstage in Vainglory’s competitive scene. Not many people know of their existence, and even less about what they do for the team. However, the effects of their work can make or break games.
Support staff (analysts and coaches in particular) have contributed immensely to Vainglory’s competitive play, but they rarely get the credit or compensation that they deserve. This isn’t meant to point fingers and throw dirt on anyone, but to call out for a change to the way the community and teams view support staff.
To the analysts and coaches who are out there reading this, I hope I’ve represented you and your work relatively accurately. I’ve gathered as much background stories and information as I could, and I want to do you justice. You’ve invested your time and effort, even sacrificed things that are precious to you. And I want the Vainglory community to know and appreciate that.
Time for your voices to be heard.
This week saw Vainglory8 action return to the Fold! After Cloud9 won the Summer Unified Live Championship, they have been looking to continue their hot streak in the Autumn Season. We also saw several lineup changes: competition for the captain spot on TSM, the legendary IraqiZorro retiring, and Hollywood Hammers picking up Status and Chicken in the jungle and captain positions. The most notable change, however, was the ownership transfer from Immortals to Tribe Gaming of the 2nd place roster from the Summer Unified Live Championship. This season will be packed with great match-ups as the teams vie for their spot at Worlds, so let’s begin with what went down in week 1.
This week in Vainglory News, we have Churnwalker lore (the next Vainglory hero), a new item sneak peak, Vainglory8 Autumn rosters, Immortals’ team being acquired, and TSM “Running the Gauntlet.”
Welcome back to Broken Myth! Today, we’ll discuss the various forms of “hero stacks” found throughout the Fold. As Vainglory stacks can drastically turn the tides, they must be accounted for during any battle and how they change over the course of the game.
Hey Vainglorians, this is Broken Myth! To kick off the Autumn Season, Vainglory 2.8 comes packed with core features to brighten your experience. At a glance, we’re seeing four new hero skins, two new items, an overhauled jungle meta, Ranked improvements, and fresh balance changes for your favorite heroes and items. Let’s get started with heroes…
With the Autumn Season of Vainglory kicking off, players must break their old habits and start anew with an overhauled meta. Part of this quest is battle readiness, and packed in its core incentive comes the implementation of two new items—Healing Flask and Spellsword. Both seek to encourage players to act more resourcefully in life-threatening situations. Broken Myth is here to break down the immediate and long-term effects of the two new Vainglory items that debuted in Update 2.8.
This week in Vainglory News, we have the Update Notes for version 2.8, Horus Idris, and an Autumn Season skin giveaway.
This week in Vainglory News, we have Vaquero Ringo, Vainglory8 starting in a new region, and changes to the Vainglory Community Meetup Program.
