After the play-in round last weekend, the action took off this week with the top 16 teams in North America. This weekend we saw matches from Parts A & C of the bracket. On Saturday there was only one series, as Playfull Thangs has disbanded their team, which allowed Rampage Gods to move on to the next round of competition. As the main portion of the Summer Open kicks off, all matches will be played on Update 3.6; however, the newest hero Silvernail was globally banned for this week’s matches.

Summer is here and full-fledged! Vainglory 3.4 boasts the most amount of gameplay and balance changes we’ve seen from an update in the past year. From a new hero and three fresh items to ability cooldown modifications and hero balancing, deciphering the ebb and flow of each change can be difficult. We have you covered on the latest in Vainglory 3.4 meta.
With Update 3.4, the way items can reduce ability timers in Vainglory has been significantly changed. On the surface, this is apparent in changes to the numeric scores granted by cooldown items and the addition cap on how much abilities can be accelerated by. However, there is a much deeper change here that may be glossed over when reading the update notes. Cooldown acceleration has been replaced by cooldown reduction across the board.
