The difference between Mobile Legends, AoV and Vainglory

After a little introduction about the three games, this time let's talk about the difference between Mobile Legends, AoV and Vainglory. Let's see!

1. Maps

Actually, there is no significant difference regarding Maps from each of the games above. However, all of them have their own characteristics in each of their Maps, such as the location of jungle creeps and creep buffs. The names of each map are also different, such as Sovereign's Rise for Vainglory, Land Of Dawn for Mobile Legends, and Antaris for Arena of Valor.

2. Control

If Mobile Legends and AoV both have virtual analog which makes it easier to play, much different from Vainglory which has tap system. Of course, the tap control must prioritize precision when playing it and smartphones with larger screens will benefit more.

3. Item Purchase System

You can't just buy items wherever your hero is when playing in Vainglory. Unlike Mobile Legends and AoV, you are required to buy items at the base or in the jungle shop who are on both sides of the jungle.

4. Attributes

In Mobile Legends and AoV games, there is a system called attributes where you can increase the basic attributes of the hero you will use. If on AoV it is called Arcana, and Mobile Legends itself is called Emblem. In Vainglory itself there is something called Talent, but it can only be used in Brawl Mode, such as Blitz and Battle Royale.

5. 'Big Monsters'

The difference also lies in each 'Big Monster' which will provide assistance in the form of attacks on enemy bases, buffs, or money to buy items. In Vainglory itself there are two 'Big Monsters', namely Blackclaw who will help destroy the turret and Ghostwing who will provide buffs.

In ML itself there is a Lord who helps destroy enemy towers and Turlte who will give money. And in AoV there is Abyssal Dragon who will give money and Dark Slayer who will give buffs to each hero.


Well, those are some of the differences that we can find from the Mobile Legends, AoV and Vainglory games. Each title certainly has its own advantages and disadvantages and of course it is the right of each player to choose which game to play. But, do you think, which game is the best?
