I have played Vainglory every day since discovering it about 2 years ago. I’ve been a part of the community, I’ve watch all the VPL seasons, supported my favorite teams, and have spent thousands of dollars on the game.
That being said, I just uninstalled VG and it’s a sad day that has been long overdue. My major issues with the game revolve around the social communication system, the guild system, and most importantly the matchmaking system itself. I’ve been playing competitive MOBAs for over 14 years now, since DOTA Icefrog, and the matchmaking in this game is a complete and utter debacle. I don’t think I’ve lost 20 games in a row in any game, both recreationally and competitively, in those 10+ years, but here we are in VG and it becomes a regular occurance. Seriously. I’ll play for 3-4 hrs, a combo of 5v5 and Blitz, and literally lose 20 games in a row, and my rankings are not bad. I am a skilled, above average player. This system is beyond broken. Other games have the algorithms and skill sets required to put up relatively fair MM systems. I will be moving onto those games and leaving VG behind.
Enjoy the cash I spent. I hope you use it wisely.
