5V5 Broken Myth Strategy

A Comprehensive Guide to Vainglory 5V5 Vision

vainglory 5v5 vision

Vainglory 5V5 vision increases your map awareness, and thus your knowledge of the enemy’s location and what they are doing. If you can see all five enemies on the other side of the map you know it’s safe to push your lane and land free hits on their turret. Conversely, if three enemies are missing, they could be coming to gank you — so it’s best to play it safe rather than be sorry. To accomplish these goals, you first must understand the Vainglory 5V5 vision system.

Vainglory 5V5 on the Rise: Late Game Team Fighting

vainglory 5v5 late game

The Vainglory 5V5 late game is all about taking decisive team fights to end out the match. Once two rows of turrets have fallen or both dragons are on the map, split pushing becomes a dangerous tactic. In order to succeed in accomplishing a split push, you must traverse deep into the enemy territory, and there is much less travel time needed for them to switch to your location. While strong split push heroes can still be utilized to take down lanes, it becomes a risky stratagem to employ — if you are caught out, your opponent is provided with a numerical advantage for the duration of your death timer. Then, the team typically begins to roam the map as one unit, looking to either steal an objective, push through one, or acquire the perfect engage to win a team fight.

At this stage, all heroes are typically fully leveled, and several heroes will be fully built in terms of equipment; thus, gold and experience differences have a reduced impact. Heroes boasting late game power spikes will be shining, while early game heroes will often be falling off from their reign. So, how should you set up that glorious team fight?

Vainglory 5V5 on the Rise: Mid Game Split Pushing and Defending

vainglory 5v5 mid game

The Vainglory 5V5 mid game commences when the first set of turrets falls. Backdoors, split pushing and other strategies that involve information and map position begin to flourish. In other MOBA titles, these are sometimes referred to as “rat strats.” Although there is debate about the legitimacy of these tactics, the aim of the game is to break the enemy Vain crystal — not to win team fights. If you can break the enemy crystal without engaging in risky head-to-head fights, then why not do so?
