Ratings and Reviews
Fluid combat, spellbinding graphics, and an arresting blend of fantasy and sci-fi cement Vainglory as one of the finest multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs) around. Each character class offers a finely tuned balance of abilities to suit different play styles, whether you’re taking down turrets, amassing gold, or confronting the enemy head-on. Thanks to a slew of updates—from new characters and modes to a game-changing season structure—Vainglory has only gotten better since its release.
Beautiful game but I’m not used to the combat style.
I love the characters, graphics, abilities...heck everything EXCEPT for the combat where you have to tap everything. I’m not used to that style at all, I prefer the way other moba’s combat style/system but I understand you don’t copy and want to be original unlike other moba’s. If you were able to perhaps let people change the combat under settings I will re-download the game and play full time! Please give us the choice, but I will give you 5* for doing such a remarkable job making such a visually impressive game for mobile/iOS.
Just an idea but if you want to be unlike other mobile MOBA games then why not add 4-5 skills instead of just 3 like every other?
I love your game because it’s not crappy FPS like all those other MOBA games made in China or wherever else, it feels American made. But if you let us choose the way we combat it would bring more people to play Vainglory. When I play I kind of feel like I’m being pressured to purchase a keyboard and mouse which will add up more money that I have to spend to enjoy a game, a game that’s on mobile which is over the top. Might just as well download LoL on my laptop and play that instead. But that’s not what I want. Anyways I’m glad to see such a great mobile game even though the combat is not my style and much props to your team/company for doing a great job. (I had to edit this a bunch of times, sorry lol)
Hey, thank you for the review. We understand that the tap to play mechanic is somewhat hard to learn id you are used to another mechanic. It takes time and practice to master.
We are happy to hear that you love our game, and we are an American company located in the heart of San Mateo, so it´s great that you feel like the game is American made, because it is! :)
Thanks for trying us out!
Really fun but hard to use
I think this game has amazing graphics and has great characters. The game is kind of balanced, at least more balanced than most games. I have had this game since I think 2016 and can honestly say I have had no problems with it, but recent changes have made it a lot harder to play:/. The newer interface is a lot harder to use. I like how the game used to be where you would touch where you wanted to go instead of a joystick or the new thing. I don’t know if there is an option where you can either choose the touch or the joystick but, I feel as if that should be a feature in the game. I also think that the new card system is I guess easier to get character skins (but i’m not sure). Though I find it unfair to the people (like me) who have made purchases of ice before the blueprints updates and got cards, because before you would need like 20 different cards and in stacks and one day you guys just took it away when we were getting cards that were needed to get a character skin. And when you guys deleted all those cards that i bought it was like a waste of money because everything that i had gotten was gone and now blueprints are here. All around though I find the game to be pretty fun and definitely recommend it. The only feature I NEED (if it’s not a thing already) is to be able to choose how your hero moves, whether it’s joystick or just touching where you want to go bc the joystick messes me up a lot.
