Hi I’m Geodoc this is a post comparing Vainglory to other mobile MOBAs like Arena of Valor and Mobile Legends. This is the first post that I am making so please don’t be too harsh. I used Google Trends to compare their popularity in the last 12 months. Keep this in mind, this only gives a rough representation of the popularity of the search and not downloads or game time. I also used some countries in each region to give a representation also. I’m sorry if I missed out your country but I can’t include all countries.
It seems that AoV is more popular than Vg in most times, but Vg is more popular than AoV during Vg worlds and 5v5 unveiling. MLBB sits at the bottom in comparison to AoV and Vg.
In the US, Vg is the most popular in comparison to ApV and MLBB.
In Canada, it is generally same as US but only with AoV getting slightly popular recently.
In the UK it is the same with Vg being the most popular and AoV and MLBB being less popular than Vg.
In France, it is just the same also.
The same goes to Germany.
In Malaysia, the trend is varying with AoV being more popular than Vg in the start and with Vg getting more popular than AoV during Vg worlds and 5v5 unveiling. MLBB being the least searched. This is surprising seeing that many people I see in Malaysia play MLBB and AoV (I actually can’t tell the difference) and I don’t see Vg being played much, reasons may be that people who play different games may play in different places and also that this is just the search popularity.
The trend in Singapore seems to be similar to other countries with Vg being more popular than AoV and MLBB.
In Philippines it is retarded similar with Vg being most popular but with MLBB being more popular than AoV.
It’s also similar in Indonesia.
In Australia Vg is the most popular then comes AoV andwith MLBB being least popular.
This is an interesting one. Unlike most countries shown earlier, AoV is pretty much more popular than Vg wothonly a few short moments that Vg is more popular. MLBB being at the bottom of the chart.
In conclusion, Vg is generally more popular than MLBB and AoV in most countries shown. Then how is AoV more popular than Vg shown in the worldwide chart? My guess is that the reason is China, the chart only shows the ratio of the searches not the amounts, so with China’s large population it is shown that AoV is generally more popular than Vg worldwide.
