I assumed that the console Kristian was referring to in his recent tweet was the Switch … I guess it could be playable on XBox or PS4 also, though.
I don’t think AoV is broken, though – it’s just a simpler game with different design goals. That might not appeal to those of us who are looking for a deeper experience, but in all honesty, I find AoV to be tons of fun.
As expected, Tencent don’t have a reason to create a rival for their own PC MOBA league of legends (they own riot). Why would they want that? On the contrary, they leave the more deep experience for the PC’s in lol and created a fast paced, less deep, fun mobile MOBA that you can play on the go.
Not to wait 20m to start an unbalanced match in which you should not be distracted to play good = not suitable for transport, workplace and everywhere outside your home, really. I can go on and on, but AOV is not even trying to rival with vainglory. Tencent’s idea for mobile MOBA is quite different and it shows - the game grows while VG… well, they do “post platform” game now.
I one-trick Fennik and literally don’t get touched. It’s disgusting. I went from unranked to high-plat in like, a day on the Switch version. I haven’t played since though, 'cause that was around the time I started working on the Prestige Kai’Sa.
