Vainglory: Game info


Game overview/synopsis

Vainglory is a mobile online battle arena (MOBA) game with a twist - it is played purely on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.

It features gameplay akin to Dota 2 and League of Legends, albeit on a smaller scale, with teams of three players facing off against one another, instead of five.

Matches tend to be quicker than the aforementioned games, and due to the title's more accessible gameplay, younger pro gamers have entered the professional Vainglory eSports scene, including Britain's own Benedict "MrKcool" Ward, who took part in the 2016 Vainglory Winter Championships at 13 years of age.
