- I don’t mean SEMC make a bad job. All what they do, they do good. Here I mean their ideas are bad(
2)I know I should put it in “Vainglory discussion” but anyway, I want SEMC to read it.
3)forgiv mu bad englisch (I have only learned it at school) and bad formating
This topic is compilation of all vainglory problems that I, personally, dislike the most. SEMC should fix them, in order not to make new players think game is another sh!tty Mobile Legends copy.

SEMC idea was to make a hardcore game for mobile devices. To show, that mobile gamers deserve better.
Vainglory was supposed to be e-sports, true competition.
Here is my story:
I was looking for a game that will become a part of my life. A game, that I will become addicted to. It had to be competitive game like DOTA 2. But my dinosaur PC from 2005 couldn’t run it, and I was 12 years old (much older now, 13) so I can’t afford myself I PC or console (I live in Ukraine, salaries here are not very big, and you may know, we have some political problems now, so my parents will never buy me new one).
I started with Mobile Legends and immediately understood that it was clickbaty sh!t that I could make on Unity. I googled, and the first result for “MOBA for android” was Vainglory. I couldn’t have it installed from google play, because “unsupported on your device™”.
all I see are shadows and lies
Vainglory is a game that was incredibly good for mobile, but there are a lot of small problems, and together they make game worse. So Technical problems:
Sometimes you have to do it yourself
And here we meet the first problem. GP says that game is unsupported even on devices where it runs pretty good. I am a sort of hacker so I easily installed .obb file and it worked. But soon my friends learned about this game and they are not hackers at all, so after every update I had to meet them and install the game manually (Thank you school).

Game runs out every time something happens. You can’t go to another app for just a second. I can’t count how many games I lost because of it. Can you, SEMC, imagine that on mobile device sometimes you have to answer a call or a message. Especially it’s bad for IOS and 4-year old android devices where you can’t answer from statusbar. Reconnection take up to minute. I got bad carma and my teamKestrel
Oh look, there went my patience
This game has never seen hotfixes. Not sure if you met a bug immediately after Lorelai release that made game with her impossible. The bug was that half of your screen went black for a second when Lorelai used her A skill. Devs knew about this problem (they replied to my e-mail to their support). I even saw this bug while teams played for Evil Eight. I can name many other bugs that needed to be fixed immediately, but I had to wait for a month till the next patch.
You’re talented. Stupid, but talented
Talents… It was supposed to be funny. But then I heard “upgrade”. That’s where it gone wrong. Talents are imbalanced AF. I don’t understand why some talents try to be balanced (e.g. +50% damage +50% cooldown) while others are just making you stronger (+50% damage -50% cooldown). Wth SEMC? Talents are the only thing making VG noncompetitive. This is PAY-TO-WIN.
Nothing but originals.
5V5… I rarely watch e-sports. But I watched that broadcast when they announced 5V5. I was incredibly hyped. But soon I understood, that it will just make Vainglory look like another sh!tty Mobile Legend copy.
Because all MOBAs are 5V5. They said that we had asked for it. But! Firstly, I never asked (explanations below). Secondly, if SEMC hadn’t made something really new, players would leave. This game has been holding me for about a year just because I was waiting for revolution.
_I’ve heard your prayers… And ignored them.
New UI looks like AoV (that has no difference with ML).
EVERYONE said it is stupid… Awesome concepts by community were created… But they kept their.
_So this is the living world… I expected more…
Please sorry me, but I really expected more. We had been waiting for ten month… And the only thing that is really new is map. I understand that map and concepts have been changing, I saw it on videos and teasers. But still… Also that golden tickets…
It’s time for you to pay! IMAO he says “pay” but some people think he says “panic”
I wasted 400 opals and the next day bundle with ticket arrives. Bruh.
Ever looked a dragon in the eyes?
Here I want to explain why I don’t like 5V5 (I’t all IMAO and I bet more than a half of you will never understand me).
Society is a mistake.
When I said that now I’m older than I was year ago I joked but I feel like my opinion on world, life, society and other changed a lot. I don’t like playing in team, I like PUBG (where it all depends on me and random) or Critical ops(at least there are no classes and 1v5 outplays are possible). In Vainglory 1v5 is not possible (unless you play Krul or Rona) so it all depends on people. I don’t like playing with people who I never knew (my
I don’t mean game here
would break if played with anime hater or guy who thinks algebra is easier than geometry). I do not need 2 odd teammates.
Stay in your lane!
5V5 is waaayy too meta. In 3V3 you feel the game, feel, that anything happening bothers you. In 5V5 when you are on top lane (even top forest) you see fight and… You can’t do anything. Despair.
Sovereign Rise is 2.4x bigger than fold, but matches are even shorter. Why? Well, it’s some balancing questions that I am not good at.
It’s often better to entice the battle to you.
There is nothing to explain. SEMC are making VG more casual and battles faster. Again, it’s balance questions. But… I am the only one who thinks battles that last for less than 30 minutes are not funny? Don’t have time? Play Blitz!
And the thing that made made me write this long (for me it’ really long) text… SEMC plans! Ba Dum Tss
You think it hurts now? Just wait
Voice chat? C’mon… SoloQ players do not need it (rank 6 and below) because all they need is just a marker and recommend an item. Higher ranks play in party using dicord. That’s all.
Oh it didn’t hurt? Here’s another.
JOYSTICK? U SERIOUSLY? Okay… I haven’t seen it, haven’t tried it… But… How will autoatacks and targeted abilities work? I like hybrid controls (like in Heroes of Order and Chaos). Joystick will mean end to “mechanical skill”. First impression from game will be like: “another Mobile Legends copy”. Some of say: “they will keep touch controls, so you can play as it was before”. No! Game will definitely be reworked! Oh, go to google play page of Vainglory and check last few paragraphs of description… Ironic, isn’t it?
Wouldn’t you rather fight for a good cause?
You go against your own laws… Pay-to-win… Joystick… You’d better made annoying MobileLegends-like ads.
This will all be gone a generation from now…
… Or even earlier if you don’t change direction.
Thanks for wasting your time reading this text.
