hello this is my experience from being active again since uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh after magnus came out?
so hello i came back to try the new hero as usual which this time was Ishtar and she is so amazing so i am consistently playing again. dont @ me but every hero after magnus was boring
So i played 5v5 matches in order to do the event to get enough glory to buy ishtar when she comes out (hopefully on this thursday like they used to be? i do not know if they changed it)
well it turns out i was actually enjoying playing 5v5 in vainglory for the first time which is a YAY because i wanted to like it. i enjoy midlane the most
my current favourite heroes are
ISHTAR (alhtough i have not played her in a proper match)
guess i am a mage main (i wish you could sort the hero select by archetype ) (yes petal is off the list )
kinetic animations also look nice
heroes I HATE right now:
joule especially is so annoying to fight against, not impossible, but she is soo tanky and her lightning blast range is much too long and thick
apart from those guys everything felt very nice and balanced
for items, i wish if you were doing autobuild for shatterglass or sorrowblade it would buy the heavy prism or heavy blade before buying the 650 cost one, that is bad design in my opinion
also, shatterglass does feel that great tot buy late game? is piercing better than straight damage?
ALSO please make book of eulogies and barbed needle a utility item that gives cooldown or attack speed and make eve of harvest built out of it (or even energy is useful to both)
i also did the 30 blitz match quests but in the 2 minutes blitz mode and IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN NORMAL BLITZ
apart from kensei epic and other certain talents it was nice and fun. using this mode i got 3 notable rewards: unlockinjg the legendary talents of : tony anjd caine (i dont own caine but his looks good) and the oni kensei skin (i dont think it is a very high quality just red flashes for animation chanages? i also dont like kensei )
this mode feels like it is what blitz was meant to be in the first place
so uhhhhhhhhhhh that is my experience so far
now here are my questions
of my favourites, which are meta?
which items are best overall?
any tactics i should be aware of?
when (if it is at all) is it appropiate to buy defence?
any other questions i should be asking?
