This week’s live stream is going to be big, the developers have already confirmed that this is the Vox reveal stream, and that they will be showing off the rest of the 1.2.1 update as well! Of course, we know not everyone is able to watch the stream as it happens, so we’ll be providing a live blog here of all of the reveals as they come. Just check in here on Friday at 2pm PST (5pm EST) for all of the news live.
For those of you who are available to watch it live, you can earn ICE by following the Vainglory Twitch Channel and tuning into the stream live. Winners are randomly decided by a twitch plug-in, all you do is follow the channel and watch the stream.
After the stream we’ll condense this down into an organized recap for easier reading!
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.

Koshka has been a hot topic of discussion ever since her recent changes in patch 1.2.0. However, these changes didn’t create the monster, she’s just the puppet. The real genius is the player-base that has found success with her in the top tiers of competitive play. This article will cover a few of the basic differences between what they are doing and what you are doing. Continue reading
This week’s stream was very different from the norm. As a result of a side bet at PAX, popular Vainglory streamer (and BrokenMyth writer) ShinKaigan was in control of the developer livestream, and boy did he take control…
I’m a Krul main. I’m not embarrassed by that. I’m the first account (that I’m aware of) that played Krul to Pinnacle of Awesome. I want to show you a clip of a fight and try to break it down as best I can to help you understand why I do the things I do. Continue reading
Here are the best gameplay clips from the past couple of weeks, all on v1.2.0 (the Celeste release). You’ll find great plays by Adagio, Ardan, Koshka, Krul, Ringo, Joule, Glaive, and Skaarf. I hope you enjoy!
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
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.
