Vainglory Catherine bug fix confirmed in 1.4.0


The SEMC developers know about the Catherine bug as previously mentioned here.

In the Vox reveal stream the Vainglory crew said that the Catherine stun bug is known but the reason it is not fixed yet is that it would take a lot of in depth surgery to get it fixed.

On the last Friday stream (Apr 18) Playoffbeard announced that Captain Neato has been working some magic and they think he has found a solution that did not require the mentioned surgery and it seems that the bug is now fixed. The bug fix will be available in the next version , 1.4.0,  that will be released with the next update.

The Devs also urge us to test the Catherine stun after the update to see if the in depth fix is still needed or if this fix is enough.

Bee / Bug Petal Skin


UPDATE: I called the skill Bee Petal, but it seems it is known as Bug Petal. I though the Devs were trying to get rid of the already existing bug in the game 🙂

A new skin has been revealed, the Bug Petal skin.

I personally haven’t played that much Petal, but I like the skin. It looks pretty awesome and I also really like how the munions are remade.

Vainglory skill tiers

Check the Vainglory Profile Art Gallery for the list of the Vainglory skill tiers with the belonging art for each one.

I have seen that a lot of people are finding my website by searching for Vainglory skill tier and I believe they are actually searching for the skill tier order and skill tier names and not what they are actually finding, which is the news about skill tier granularity.

Here is the list of vainglory skill tiers:

  • Ask Again Later
  • Working on it
  • Getting there
  • Not bad
  • Decent-ish
  • Pretty Good
  • The Hotness
  • Simply Amazing
  • Pinnacle of Awesome
  • Vainglorious

For every skill tier there is also a Bronze, Silver and Gold sub-tier indicating where in the tier you are.

The plan is to have this information with the new art work images for every tier on a separate page. I’m collecting the artwork at the moment. The page, although incomplete can be found here.


Vox update live

The update including Vox is now live!
Vox costs 900 ICE and he can not be purchased with Glory until Saturday.
Alongside Vox (described here) the update includes several other things mentioned here.

Some new reveals

  • Report system – the ability to report bad behavior by giving a thumbs down but also to honor good behaving players with a thumbs up. As far as I understood, there will not be a limited number of reports, instead, abusing the reports will cause them to weigh less.
  • Consumables can be used instantly at the shop if the inventory is full
  • XP catch-up – the players that are behind will gain XP faster while the ones with higher levels will gain XP slower.
  • Attack speed changes

Vox – Release date and early access

Source: www.vainglorygame.com

The Vainglory devs have announced that Vox will be available for purchase with ICE already this Wednesday (1st of April). If you want to spend Glory to get Vox you’ll have to wait until Saturday (4th of April) in order to be able to get him.

Importance of getting Vox using ICE

We all love Vainglory and I personally really like the way Super Evil Megacorp treats the community. Not a lot of devs listen to the players and interact with the community as much as SEMC. Remember also that the game is free to download and free to play. For now, the only income source for the devs is based on players purchasing ICE. We don’t want SEMC to be forced to “sell themselves to” (sign with) some bad large publishers that only care about money and don’t give a rat’s ass about the users.
