Just curious, I like to see what people have to say.
Personally, the heroes that fall under this category (the title of the thread) for me are:
I’m ok when I’m playing Ardan, be it in any game mode. He feels great to play and I just don’t die as much as other heroes I’ve played.
The only part of his kit that I may tend to lack high tier skill is timing his abilities across distances and placing his ultimate effectively.
Visually, his base design is cool, and his skins are great! Though I question why his only Legendary is a rather hot pink. Celeste couldn’t have been any subtler eh?
I have all but one of his skins, the Contender skin. Why? I was lazy to rank up at that time despite being more than capable of doing so.
Mechanically, I find Flicker very pleasant to use. His capacity for moving quickly around the map and his passive for mitigating enemy vision is marvelous. I just love chuckling while asking my teammates to get rid of the Scout Cam I pinged.
I had had a problem with using his A, but after getting some good tips on how to play Flicker to be an extreme menace, my performance on him is just great! His ultimate takes some more practice though, as my Casual teammates tend to not use it properly. My Brawl mode randos do a good job capitalizing off of this though.
Visually, I find it pleasing that he has a simple stealth design. His abilities are a good mix of flashy and subtlety. 10/10 for being cute and smart looking. His skins are quirky and adorable, which is quite the contrast to his personality which I find fitting.
I love playing Fortress whenever I get favorable teammates and enemy team compositions. He just dives and chews the opponent like nobody’s business. Another aspect of him that helps me play him decently mechanics wise is his higher base attack speed. It makes stutter stepping with him so much easier than some other heroes.
Visually, I love his design. An odd fur color as his base design, while his skins fit his canine nature perfectly. Wish I could have gotten his LE skin though, I miss it.
This guy has been my go-to lately for playing Brawl modes. His mechanics are simple and his Talents, though strong, are at least a bit fairer than some others.
To me, he is the easiest hero a player can pick up to learn to manage just two abilities mostly and stutter stepping. His ult is ok, but boy does it put him in a dangerous position. Wish they tweaked it a bit.
Visually, because he is one of the heroes from the birth of Vainglory; he is very simple. Yet, there is beauty in that simplicity. I find it quite appealing how they manage to dress him up and put things in his model without really changing much to his animations. Artwork style is also great. Of course, his Legendary is the best, even for being one of the earliest Legendary skin ever introduced in Vainglory.
I think this dragon is similar in a way to Ringo, but abilities rather than stutter stepping. I find joy when landing his A from afar by predicting enemies movement. His entire set is usually just A and B to poke, farm and chip the enemies to bits. His ultimate is easily one of the most underestimated ones out there. Got scorched and used it to scorch a good number of players.
Visually, his base design is intriguing in that it breaks the mold of the idea of dragons in MOBAs. Who knew downsizing was all they need to fit in, lol.
I don’t have all his skins, but the ones I do have (Tabby and the original 3 skins) are good to use imo.
Heroes that nearly made the cut but couldn’t quite match up with what I’m looking for.
- Vox - visually interesting, but mechanically, I’m bored with him.
- Yates - mechanically very interesting, but he needs a good Legendary skin to convince me to play him a bit more often.
So, what’s yours? Feel free to say whatever you like about this!
