Autumn Season 2015
Beginning with this update, Vainglory will feature a seasonal competition structure. Autumn 2015 is the first season, which will last from early October until early January. All players have three months to earn the highest possible skill tier and other achievements to fill their Autumn 2015 trophy room, and at the end of each season, all trophies will appear in players’ Vainglory profiles. There will also be tons other limited edition content for players to enjoy each including seasonal maps, skins and more.
The Guild System
The Vainglory Guild system is designed to give players a supportive social system within the game and make it easier for them to find like-minded, reliable players to battle. All future Guild rewards will be based on dedication and participation. All players within a Guild must hail from the same server-region but can choose whether to be a public or invite-only team. Members can easily communicate with other Guild members through chat. Guilds can be formed by using Glory or ICE and in the beginning can include up to 20 members. By being active, Guilds can unlock the ability to add up to 50 members. Finally, Guilds can soon organize Vainglory Community Meets (VGC) with special support and swag from the Super Evil team. Stay tuned for more updates.
The Team System
The Team-system is made up of players who want to play competitively and can be set up using Glory or ICE with a maximum of six players from the same region. A helpful Team-only chat is available for easy communication and strategizing. Team members will have team tags when playing as a party that will show up in-game. Team skill tier will help determine tournament seed when signing up for regional Vainglory qualifiers.
The Autumn Season 2015 launch will include new hero, Phinn, who is an unstoppable tank that thrives on the defensive side. Phinn is able to absorb an immense amount of punishment, protecting teammates while they dish out damage to opponents. Petal and Celeste will have limited-edition skins that can be unlocked throughout update 1.9 and Krul Tier II and Taka Tier II skins will also be available. Finally, The Halcyon Fold will be completely updated with an Autumn themed map.
