A Wishlist and Look at Tracking Competitive Stats

I recently found a spurt of inspiration in a Twitter conversation about the current state of tournaments in Vainglory. While not the only topic of conversation, the area of improvement that caught my interest was stats. Now I’m someone who loves to just open a new spreadsheet in Numbers and test out ideas for various builds, so the idea of being able to look at say the KDAs or creep scores of various teams, in say the LEV, and compare them with other teams is rather exciting to me.

[Recap] Official Livestream – FooJee’s Guest Stream (3/13/15)

Every few weeks there’s a stream that while I find interesting, I have a hard time recaping. This is one of those weeks. There weren’t the same huge reveals that we’ve seen in other weeks, but instead smaller, but still very interesting, tidbits of the future.

The stream started off with a review of the launch of the East Asian servers in Korea. The game was immediately big over there and they had a LAN party to celebrate its launch. The Ed came on to discuss the progress of the Android beta. Over 5k invitations for the beta have been sent out; when the beta first started last week, only a eleven devices were supported. Now there are forty-some.

They then went on to two somewhat small (but important) reveals. The first was a teaser of the splash art for the new SAWborg skin, shown below. Continue reading

Demystifying the New Broken Myth (v1.2.0): A Comprehensive Guide

If you have ever purchased crystal power items for your heroes, it’s important for you to understand how Broken Myth can impact your damage output. Broken Myth recently received a heavy revision with the release of Celeste (v1.2.0) and I believe it’s an overall improvement to the item. However,  Broken Myth is widely misunderstood, both in how it works and when it should be purchased. As I’m writing this, there are multiple threads on the topic of Broken Myth on the front page of the general forums. My objective is to help everyone become much clearer on how to use it and when to buy it.
