SMEC seems to be coming out with great new gamemodes for the game lately
I noticed on the Vainglory forums, someone for SMEC mentioned that a horde mode was being experimented with in the game. Like to that discussion here

Since I can't seem to find a thread here on VGF, I decided to make one.
To begin, I'd like to talk about my vision on how a horde mode could work.

The mode would be played on the current map with 6 players working together to protect both Vain Crystals from being destroyed by enemies coming from that hole in the middle of the map for a set number of minutes.

I Would want new enemies for this gamemode. More specifically, beefier versions of existing minions/Jungle monsters, class specific enemies that is not a botted hero (mages, snipers, assassins... etc), and new bosses for the Very Hard mode.

The number of minutes the players will have to defend depends on what difficulty the player chooses. The times for each difficulty is as follows: 5 for Very Easy, 10 for Easy, 15 for Normal, 20 for Hard and 30 for Very Hard.

A new wave will spawn each minute which will travel through the jungle to the nearest objective (turret/crystal) on one side, with the target side switching after each wave.

This is what gameplay would look like for each level:

Very Easy (5 Minutes)
Not much, just normal lane minions, some jungle monsters, a few class specifics, and a Crystal Miner at 5 min

Easy (10 Minutes)
Slightly harder, Very easy with 5 more minutes.... and a Gold Miner at 10 minutes

Normal (15 Minutes)
Just Normal. Not easy, especially with what usually spawns at 15 min will be mindlessly charging for your turrets and crystal

Hard (20 Minutes)
When one is not enough, send another.

Very Hard (30 Minutes)
After Wave 24 has been defeated a random boss will spawn and a 5-min epic boss battle ensues.

Boss Ideas:
That dragon mentioned in Skaarf's Lore - Basically a big, tanky, skaarf with a melee attack and stun.
The serpent lady thing that Idris fought in his lore
Taka's boss (House Kamuha's Leader)
A reaper that can put dead players under the control of a bot that will fight for him until the respawn timer ends for the player or his team kills the botted player (once per death)
A Golem that splits into 2 smaller ones upon death... twice.
The Storm Queen.

If you have any ideas feel free to leave a post.

Maybe you just buy a ton of items and hoard them :D
jk jk jk jk jk
But I think maybe one of the enemies that spawn could be the Kraken, since you mentioned the Gold Miner. Or maybe the Kraken can fight for you. IDK.

I'm honestly hoping that if this becomes a thing, it becomes something like Mann Vs. Machine. New enemies... a team of 6 heroes, 100% co-op, no PvP.

I did a bit of research on other MOBA's and their Horde Modes, as well as some player concepts. Seems like it will be like you stated- Defend the vain crystal form waves of minions.

Maybe new things to spend money on, like you have to spend X to get your own minions to spawn (very weak, basically meat shields)

I feel that this horde mode could be a way for Corpus to make it into the game... maybe as a boss.

How about one player gets to play as Corpus and at least two other players get to protect him?
