(I meant to post this in UI & overall environment, but I’ll put it here just in case. Hopefully it provides discussion about VG and possibly get moved, BUT ANYWAY…)
In ML’s new update, you can now add a photo album of yourself in your profile, which others can view, like, and comment. This post isn’t really a jab on MLBB, but rather on Vainglory.
Even though the feature seems so outlandishly ridiculous, it says a lot about the out-of-game experience of ML. They’ve come to a point where they have so many useful and existing features already, that THIS is an improvement they came up with.
Below I’ll list a few significant things from ML that I wish VG had, but it’s too late anyway:
By the way in ML’s next update, you can boast your achievements in your profile. And instead of a boring list of accomplishments, every single one will have a unique badge!
Makes it a whole lot easier for streamers to do giveaways.
In ML, you can watch a friend’s match with complete vision over everyone (there is a delay though). You can only watch if the player turns on the “streaming” option in his profile.
You can see match histories and stats SOOOOOO easily in Mobile legends. You can view someone’s best heroes, win rates, double kills, triple kills, penta kills, etc etc. Meanwhile, we have an inconveniently-placed in-game browser whose API works only half the time.
It’s cool to see leaderboards of a specific hero. I don’t know how it is calculated, but hey.
In-game model showcase
Everything VG has to offer in their market is a flat piece of splash art, which is appealing, but it’s more like the book cover to a book’s contents. You’re not looking at the splash art when you’re using the skin in the game, but the model. I just wish they featured that in their shop too.
Number-based karma system
You need a certain “credit score” to partake in rank, and being successfully reported takes away a huge of chunk of that. There’s no LPQ, but you have to play casual to slowly regain your credit score. I just like this system because it’s numbers.
Got a message from an offline friend in VG? Chances are, you won’t even be able to know who it is! Try scrolling that endless list of friends to find out :). In ML, that isn’t the case. You won’t be lost in the redundant and buggy UI, you’ll see your message as soon as you click the notification for it. Fast and easy.
There’s a whole lot more, but these are the features I wish VG had. This whole thread is just begging me to make another UI project, isn’t it?
