Vainglory is a free-to-play, 3D Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA), developed and published by Super Evil Megacorp for mobile devices. The game features PC quality graphics, a variety of obtainable heroes, endless customization through item interactions and skill modifications and deep strategic gameplay.
While most MOBAs feature a 5 vs 5 three lane system, Vainglory introduced a casual and mobile friendly, yet in-depth and strategic, 3 vs 3 one lane system. Jungle map is another feature that separates Vainglory from the other MOBAs, its unique layout with monsters, minion mines and a boss gold mine provides players with an alternative way to earn gold throughout the game. The main lane is populated by waves of opposing minions, ten towers (five for each team) and two Vain Crystals (Core). The objective stays the same, the team that destroys the enemy’s crystal takes the win. In order to achieve victory, players have to act as a team, work together to cope with the towers and kill the enemy heroes, while utilizing the jungle’s mechanics to their advantage (ignoring the jungle leads to failure in most cases). The customization is limitless, hundreds of item combinations, a variety of skills to choose and upgrade and dozens of heroes to pick.
Vainglory is a really polished and high quality 3D MOBA, it is considered to be the best of its kind for Android and iOS devices. Although its 3 vs 3 one lane system seems a bit casual, the game offers a strategic and fun experience that will keep you addicted for a long time if you are a MOBA fan.
