This week in Vainglory News, we have King Glaive, a 5V5 interview, Vainglory at Gamescon, the Summer Bracket Challenge, a new way to enjoy the MOBA for touch, and the location of the SEA Vainglory8 Live Championship.
Epic King Glaive
Glaive now, as appearances would suggest, is king of the jungle with the Lion themed ‘King’ Glaive. The new Epic skin will be available in update 2.8. He needed a little help to be king, and you can read all about it in the new Alternate Fate lore.

Vainglory | The MOBA Perfected for Alternate Input Devices
Have you ever thought about how Vainglory would feel, played on a desktop like setup, with a keyboard and mouse? I’m sure a couple of you have tried with Bluestacks. Now, however, you won’t need to try so hard. SEMC is introducing Samsung Dex support in collaboration with Samsung, allowing you to do exactly that! Do note that this is not allowed for competitive play to remove any chance of gaining an unfair advantage.
