Massive Online Battle Arenas are nothing new. Ever since the introduction of Warcraft III’s Defense of the Ancients there have been plenty of games that fit the genre. Vainglory is a different game all on its own, but the players come from differing backgrounds and some varying mindsets which I’m hoping to delve into here.
Thanks to the geniuses at Super Evil Megacorp we’re going to get an early look at Vox! I didn’t expect to see a date this early because his numbers haven’t been released publicly, but Vox is going to be hitting the Fold sooner than previously imagined.
Vox will be available on Wednesday for Incredibly Concentrated Evil (ICE), or on Saturday for Glory.

A huge stream for news this week. The big news of course: Vox.
This week’s live stream is going to be big, the developers have already confirmed that this is the Vox reveal stream, and that they will be showing off the rest of the 1.2.1 update as well! Of course, we know not everyone is able to watch the stream as it happens, so we’ll be providing a live blog here of all of the reveals as they come. Just check in here on Friday at 2pm PST (5pm EST) for all of the news live.
For those of you who are available to watch it live, you can earn ICE by following the Vainglory Twitch Channel and tuning into the stream live. Winners are randomly decided by a twitch plug-in, all you do is follow the channel and watch the stream.
After the stream we’ll condense this down into an organized recap for easier reading!

UPDATE: The stream is now over, expect a recap this evening!
I’m a Krul main. I’m not embarrassed by that. I’m the first account (that I’m aware of) that played Krul to Pinnacle of Awesome. I want to show you a clip of a fight and try to break it down as best I can to help you understand why I do the things I do. Continue reading
