Vainglory in the NY Times
On Sunday, the game Vainglory was featured in the NY Times Bits blog:
Touch-based games, said Jens Hilgers, the founder and chairman of ESL, which operates large e-sports tournaments around the world, have “the potential for being a broader e-sport because there’s a larger audience that wants to play games there.”
One of the first games to test that proposition is Vainglory, which came out late last year for iPhones and iPads and just recently for Android devices.
I’ve been playing Vainglory for months. Sadly, I’ve come to the conclusion that I suck at it. Maybe I’m too old.
Unlike with football, I bet that no Vainglory team has ever lost a player because another player punched him in the face and broke his jaw.
