For those of you that have been following us for a while, you may remember when we had pages for the best and most popular hero builds. These became a lot of work for a small team to manage and were subsequently left untouched. We recently expanded our team of analysts to renew what has been our most requested feature.

Rather than tire you with a list of what’s changed, we’ll keep it simple: Everything. We’re dedicated to renewing the hero builds each update — you don’t have to worry about information going out of style. We recommend bookmarking the link or adding it to your home screen for quick access during a match.

Esports Vainglory Premier League

VPL Preseason Power Rankings: NA Week 5

vpl preseason week 5

Over the course of the last five weeks, we have seen what 5V5 competitive play can look like. Some matches have lasted 10 minutes, while others have gone all the way up to nearly 30 minutes; some that are highly competitive, sweaty games, and some that were painful to watch. Both EU and NA went through these five weeks attempting to showcase not only which region is best, but also which team is best. Many teams have mechanically strong players who are looking to form synergy and master their macro play. Other teams have proven the hard work that they have put in on the Rise since early January.

Our power rankings have stayed relatively the same through the preseason, with the mid-pack fluctuating up and down. This week we saw a few changes upon a new team finally entering the top two position. Overall, these five weeks showed Vainglory esports fans a lot of great action. Teams also have work to do as they prepare for the official start of the Vainglory Premier League. Let’s break down week five’s power rankings!
