New Vainglory update 1.6 preview today 29th of June

It has been announced by the devs that the 1.6 will be available will all the features already today. The official forum post can be found here: forums.vainglorygame.com

New in this update will be:

New Hero Rona

The new melee warrior hero Rona. More here Rona. I’m excited about the new hero. I havent had time to grow tired of Fortress (since I haven’t had time to play / stream a lot lately), and here comes a new cool hero.

The hero will be as with the last 2 heros available with ICE the first week and with Glory or ICE after the first week.

Casual and Ranked game modes

I’m warmly welcoming this new feature. I wanted many times to have the ability to just play some matches without worrying about the Skill tier.  On the other hand I wanted to be sure that when I am ready to play in order to improve my skill tier,  the rest of my team also has the same goal.

With 1.6 the skill tier system will became more transparent telling you exactly how far you are from next tier or if you are near to fall to the previous tier.

Get cards

The “Get cards” section in the market will now be made available and it is supposed that cards will be purchasable with glory. I believe no one has been able to unlock a tier 2 skin so far mostly because the cards’ drop rate is too low compared to how many are necessary to unlock a skin.

Apart from these changes there will surely be a lot of balance changes on heroes and items too that will be announced on the official downtime stream.

The 1.6 update also brings Vainglory officially on Android. You can even preregister for the Android version to get a free Hero. More here http://www.superevilmegacorp.com/blog/2015/6/24/vainglory-commercial-launch-set-for-july-2-android-pre-registration-open

I can’t wait for the new update!


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.
