[Live] Official Developer Stream – Who Even Knows What’s Coming? (5/29/15)

This week is gonna be a surprise for us all! I’m thinking we shouldn’t expect too much this week, its true that we did get a hero teased immediately after the update last time around, but I wouldn’t expect the same to happen again. At best we’ll probably see a few surprise skins.

Anyways, you can follow all of the news right here! Continue reading

[Live] Developer Live Stream – Joule Skin Reveal and Maybe Update/Wolfie Reveal?

We’re back after a short hiatus! Hopefully we’ll be continuing this all through summer now, with the exception of a week or two for vacations. But anyways, let’s get down to what we can expect to see.

A Joule Skin reveal has been confirmed. Likely we’ll see another hero’s tier 2 skin in game, as well.

Wolfie is complete or nearing completion, so today may be his day. Although, SEMC hasn’t hyped a hero reveal, so more likely they’ll do a special mid-week stream for him and the update or wait until next Friday. To be honest though, my money is on a mid-week stream.

The rest of the update could get shown off as well, including the balance changes to Vox, Skaarf, and others. And likely the card buying system, epic cards, and T2 skins. Once again though, it’s likely they’ll have a special stream during the down time for the update, or even on the Wednesday stream.

Excited to see what today’s stream holds, though.

So let’s speculate on what this hero could be in the time we have before he’s revealed (#hype!).

The Weaknesses of a Burst Taka

Taka let me farm

Previously, I shared a video that introduces how to play a weapon power Taka and it has received a lot of positive attention from the Vainglory community. Admittedly, there’s also been some reluctance to adopt this play style due to how comfortable players have become with Taka burst builds. The focus of this post is to explain the inherent weakness of burst builds and why it is a good time to make the switch to a weapon power build.
