Hello there! I used to be a hardcore Vainglory fan, actively playing with 2 accounts, one of which is POA gold and the other Hotness Silver (Before the season reset). I have spent over 90 USD in the game, just to get the Skaarf Golden sparkler skin of which I am starting to regret now. I left Vainglory for about a year and recently started playing again upon the release of the 5v5. Here is my experience of the game after my first few ranked matches.
I will try to keep salt to a minimum, but I am boiling under my skin as I am typing this.
To start with,
Of course, the vainglory developers are once again oblivious to the imperative needs of the players. I see they have added some short phrases, a really pathetic attempt to resolve this lingering issue (I laughed at it for about 10 minutes straight) xD. Communication is of paramount importance in any moba game, and it is insufficient in vainglory. More advanced and skilled players need a proper chat system, to convey messages such as “Spread out enemy crystal vox!” or “Koshka Pouncy Fun Saw and use Atlas Pauldron!”, of which the current system fail to do. How much better would it be to have an actual chat system! Players would actually discuss game plans instead of pulling their hair out during respawn times!
Oh wait the developers are afraid of vulgarities, nevermind lets just discard this great addition which would make the game a lot better.
AFKs in ranked
Come on the masses know that there is an abundance of afkers in Vainglory. I don’t care if you do not deduct my rank rating, you just wasted 25 minutes of my life! At least give us some dumb chest to pretend to care for us. Once again, another pertinent issue oblivious to the eyes of the developers.
Weapon skaarfs and crystal shank saws, I had enough! I heard a 16 year old boy in Singapore recently committed suicide. I also heard that he played a Vainglory Match before he jumped.
I know that the developers know the days aren’t looking good for Vainglory anymore, if it is not elucidated clearly enough in the way they try to elicit cash from addicted players. (Golden ticket for 5v5!) They are just trying to squeeze out every bit of cash they can earn from the decreasing player base before the game dies, I completely understand. I know I will never see the implementation of said suggestions, but I needed to let those words out anyways. With that said, Thanks For Reading!!
