Damn! That Was FUN!

Thank you everyone for coming out to the first Upstate New York Halcyon Gathering in Saratoga Springs! Meeting fellow Vainglory players in person is a unique experience and anyone that’s done this can tell you it takes the enjoyment of the game to an entirely new level. We had such a great time together playing and discussing Vainglory. All have confirmed that they’d come back to do it again!

A Guide to Being Boosted

Main Roam

If you only play roam heroes and put down lots of vision, people who are actually good at this game can carry you. Be sure to give them a few minutes off every couple games so their backs don’t break.

Only Play With People Who Are Higher Tier Than You

If you play with anyone who is at your tier or below, you might actually have to do something in order to win. And since you’re a boosted scrub, we all know you can’t play Vainglory with people below your own skill tier.

Select Broken Heroes

Lyra, Adagio, Fortress
Lyra, Adagio and Fortress are excellent choices if you want to win without knowing how to play Vainglory.

Using this method, you too can get carried to POA Gold.
