Vainglory’s Unsung Heroes: Support Staff

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.
