It’s amazing how much the game has grown during the past year (even before launching in China), and that is entirely thanks to all you amazing, dedicated players who have played, stuck with us and helped us improve. Together, we’re creating something special, both in terms of the in-game play experience and the competitive eSports scene.
We are so grateful that you continually choose to play Vainglory, and we will continue to work as hard and as late as we can to make the game better for you. This has been, and always will be, a dialogue between devs and Community. We are in this together, and we are always listening, taking notes and step-by-step improving the game based on your amazing feedback (and occasionally game-breaking strats).
So, join us in welcoming all the Chinese players to the Fold, play all week during Double Glory, win as much as you can during the 24 hours of “Cards Crazy 8,” watch the best teams in the world battle in VGL and tune in Friday for the special anniversary dev stream and Tuesday for the Blackfeather reveal stream! It’s going to be a huge celebration honoring you, our players. GLHF! —PlayoffBeard
