    Very important question: can we post nsfw stuff 10 seconds away from the time the forums closes?

    Hey all,


    After much discussion, consideration, and debate we have decided to close the official Vainglory Forums, effective February 10. As we close one door, we also want to ensure open doors are easily accessible. At the bottom of this, you will find links to official and unofficial Vainglory channels where vibrant community conversations are still taking place. We hope to see you over on one of these channels soon!

    This difficult decision follows in the footsteps of other game titles that have reached the same conclusion over time. And after closely monitoring their decision, and its impact, we feel the clear positive effects are worth working toward for the Vainglory community. The forums were an integral part of the Vainglory community, especially in the beginning, to create long-lasting friendships, theorycraft and interact with SEMC. Since then, newer platforms have emerged that tackle the goals of a forum in a more efficient and — more importantly — a more constructive and positive fashion that fosters a positive, growing community.

    We will allow posts and comments to be made for a period of two weeks. No new account creations in this period. After two weeks, we will close off all functionality. Take your screenshots now!

    The forums will remain active until February 10, after this, they’ll be permanently closed. Please use this time to save any content you would like to keep (such as posts, artwork, articles).

    While the forums were an integral part of the Vainglory community in the beginning, newer platforms have since emerged that tackle the goals of a forum in a much more efficient way. Investing more time and resources into these platforms will help us foster a positive, thriving and growing community that we all want for Vainglory.

    We realise that they were used to create long lasting friendships and interact with SEMC, and the forums hold a place dear to our hearts just as much as they do to the community.

    And so, we will be laying to rest the forums on February 10. Below we will leave steps for our amazing forum users to transition onto our other social platforms. Lastly, thank you to everyone that that has been with us since the beginning. We’ll continue to strive for excellence and making the community the very best it can be.


    Mejlis, the Community Team, and all of SEMC

    Nice way to subtly put it @mejlis. The forums do you more harm then good now. As a gaming company which is forgetting its roots and transitioning into a cutthroat business, shutting down this place is the best solution for you to avoid the criticism and negativity, since the forums is the most critical among all social media and posts don't just disappear here, but actually get discussed and your decisions scrutinized. Of course you could respond to criticism... but then again I guess the way you have gone about business recently hasn't left much to say.

    It's just sad seeing you guys promote Facebook and other media platforms as a place which harbors great discussion and content, but lets be honest there has been pretty critical and low quality content of late hasn't there. Of course we can ignore the great content which has always been on here, although rather less of late. Instead of doing something about it you would rather just shut this community down because you don't need it anymore, your game is doing well enough to sell. This forums is now a cancerous growth for you robbing you of your new found goal which has become the primary focus : money.

    I still remember the time when I was new to the forums and stumbled on posts which were around the start of Vainglory. It was mostly the devs posting, and a few players. It was amazing at how genuinely they responded with happiness at someone playing their game and enjoying it, asking them what they liked and putting their own opinion forward. I guess this is what happens at the end, you become big and start looking at the bigger picture. Marketing, expansion and eradication of the biggest source of criticism towards your company all in one fell swoop right before 5 v 5 hits. At the mere cost of the forums?

    All in favour? One hand down who could that be! Haha nice one doer.

    Fb- dead
    Discord- cancer fest, spamming etc.
    Twitter- wtf?
    Reddit- not much of a place for discussion, people just downvote, upvote, spam memes and don't really make threads like the forums

    On the other hand, I'm glad this forum is dying out if we won't be seeing any more of your type on here.
    You were that desperate to get that message across to people that you had to post it on both reddit and the forums?

    Two theories about this.

    1) The game isn't doing well, and the first step in that case is to close down the forums. Support to other parts of the game process will follow.

    2) They want to silence the complaints. Players come to the official forum and see complaints. In some cases it's dumb complaints (like advertising a different mobile moba), in other cases it's valid complaints (like the prices of things, the style).

    Either way, it isn't a good sign.

    Also, you expect me to follow you on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit? The trifecta of evil?

    Poor decision! The forums foster a different type of conversation than reddit. There is depth and the ability to make real connections with people. There is so much of the history of the game stored here. Reddit is for memes. Vaingloryfire is lucky to see one post every 2-3 days on their forum. The site is also plagued with pop-ups.

    Between the reduction in Community Managers and shuttering of the forum, it loooks like VG is struggling to keep the lights on.

    This decision took time and has been on our thoughts for a while. We do not want anyone's opinions to be left unheard, which is why we made sure to leave as comprehensive a list as possible for forum users to transition to. Please don't hesitate to join the conversation already thriving on those platforms.

    Damn. That's a trip. I will miss you guys. I grew a lot on this forum. Hope to see most of you on Reddit and Twitter. Also because I'm sure they still have me blocked can someone please tell @PinkiePie and @Anni that I'm sorry I was mean to them.

    To everyone that I've ever spoken down to or argued with, I am sorry. You're all a great people (yes even the weebs) that impacted at least some lives if not only mine.

    I wish you all well! Goodbye everyone!

    So its not completely definite yet but it is looking like us moderators with some help from a few other community folk will be putting together a community forum - probably running on the Discourse Forum software - because it has a lot of features we have wanted for this place for awhile. (Including apparently “mobile friendliness” XD)

    So watch this space and don’t completely despair or dissappear - while it won’t be the “the official forums” it will be as close as we can make it, and more community driven and controlled. We hope to make it self financing via things like patreon (I and a couple of others will bank roll the first year, and then we will see how close to financially viable we have got).

    More details will be shared once we have them, until then if you want to help out or just to be kept informed, pm me with your email address and “special skills” and I will add you to the list.

    I think your ones of the most genuine guys on here but today you just sound like a robot to me, I'm sorry to say so. The forums is closing, the devs aren't changing their minds. Your just here to tell everyone their feedback is "valuable" and they can move to other platforms. Citing reasons like oh the forums isn't mobile friendly and we are a mobile game! Along with COSTS, 5 v 5 is coming up surely we must cut costs to save money because looks like sales have taken a hit.. Well let's just close the forums and give them 2 weeks notice, and just for kicks lets tell them to save up whatever they want because who got time to keep all this data. You even tried to justify this by saying other games had closed their forums as well which totally makes it right for you to do it.

    Your words are meaningless. Damage control until the forums shut down trying to act like its a sad day at the lair. Trying to act like facebook produces good Vainglory content when you have seen the great threads posted here. Hero ideas, lore, guides, and unbiased opinions. Of late these opinions have affected you negatively because of your cheap marketing but in particular the forums has been vocal on this matter. It negatively influences people who play the game and people who visit the forums, and while this may not be the only reason it was definitely one of the top ones.

    Once these forums shut down, I'm out of this community. I hate the way reddit is structured and good content is equally rare. As for facebook and twitter? Yeah right those tweets sure sound like a better experience then a proper forums for just the game. It's sad to see what you guys have been reduced to.

    -Insert generic SEMC response

    We are sorry to hear you leave us, as always your feedback is very valuable to us. The forums is shutting down for all problems kindly send us a support ticket to support@superevilmegacorp.com where we will deal with you one by one, or why not try out other platforms. If the content there sucks then be the change you want to see, oh the forums are long gone though. We hope to see you again one day. *cough* don't let the door hit you on your way out *cough*
