    They’re making VG so much more competitive. I hope it doesn’t ruin the casualty of VG.

      Vainglory still has so many ways for players to have fun in a casual and low-pressure setting. I know I love hanging out on GreenRangerr’s twitch channel because he plays fun game modes with his viewers. I sincerely doubt that any changes geared toward improving competitive play will hurt the casual player. Check his stream out here:
