[Fact Dump] PAX EAST 2015 Show Matches

Hey guys, I’m going to do a little fact dump about the show matches at PAX EAST 2015.

  • Both matches were shown on the Twitch MainStage to an unknown number (thousands?)¬†of people. The first match had over 20k viewers via the twitch.tv/twitch channel and another 10k via the twitch.tv/vainglory channel. This is likely one of the largest audiences the game has had behind the iPhone 6 Keynote and iPhone 6 ad.
  • The matches were the first live displays of multiple features: skins, spectator mode, and Android.
  • A total of eleven unique heroes of thirteen were shown off in the matches by eight players. The only excluded heroes were Adagio and Joule.
  • Catherine was the only hero played twice, both times by LadyWabeesh.
  • SAW would’ve have been played twice, but at the last moment Ms Vixen switched to Petal.
  • The Day 2 match went nearly forty minutes long and included four Kraken unleashes, and 5 Aces.
  • Every true-carry was represented. Adagio being the only unrepresented semi-carry.
  • One skin was used. SAWborg by Zekent on day 2.
  • On day two there were no tanks on Shin’s team, even though there were two possible ones (Koshka and Krul). But on day one there were two, Glaive and Ardan.
