Welcome to the Vainglory Hero Counters guide! We know that you finally hit the Draft in Ranked mode. Whether it’s a new experience or an old one, having a cheat sheet to draft like the pros is undeniably useful. We understand and are here to help with a quick guide to keep you leveling up in Vainglory.
A couple of caveats before we get to the meat of the article. This is not a guide to how you should draft. If you are looking for one, you are in luck! Fedmattisgg wrote a great drafting guide that you can check out. Secondly, some counter picks are better than others, but it does not help your team if you cannot play said counter pick. Finally, some items can counter specific heroes’ strengths and are noted below, but for an in-depth look at counter-building read Gadianton’s article.
If you’re looking to test your new knowledge, try out our Vainglory Draft Simulator! To see how well each hero performs in the latest meta, brush up on our Hero Tier List. Choose wisely, play to your personal strengths, and may the churn ever be in your favor.
