After three week of submissions and a week of judging we've nailed down our 6 grand prize winners as well as 10 lucky users who've won our giveaway portion! The guides below show tremendous amounts of time and effort put into them.

Captain Winners The Stalwart Defenders


This guide will have you howling like a wolf (sorry couldn’t help myself). But seriously LilWolfPup’s guide to Fortress is well written, nicely formatted, and most importantly chock-full of great information in order for you to protect and lead your team to victory. This guide features a full breakdown of what your team expects from the Captain role, detailed explanation of core items, abilities, and a layout on how you should ideally stalk the map like a proper wolf.



He’s durable, can control a team fight with his ult, and can bring the pain, that’s right we’re talking about Vainglory’s official father figure, Ardan. This hero is capable of pulling off some truly remarkable plays when used correctly. Luckily prodigy755 has the perfect, well-formatted guide for you. Filled with incredible detail about ability timing, map rotation, item purchases, vision and synergies. This guide will have you charging into the fray and devastating the other team in no time.



Jungler Winners Hunters of the Squishies


TFDeathRay’s guide for Idris is detailed with pretty much everything you could ever want to know about this truly unique hero along with some funny quips here and there to ensure the material isn’t stale. It should be stated that yes Idris can be played in lane but this guide points out a lot of the benefits to having Idris in the jungle (that sweet mobility) as well as choosing his melee build over his mage build. To support that claim TFDeathRay goes into a detailed list of possible combo's to use with Idris to ensure you’re using him to his full ability. On top of that there’s a list of synergies to help any wanna be desert warrior know the best match up.



Oh, Ozo the acrobatic monkey that got off to a rough start. But BlazeChron believed in this hoop slinging circus performer. You’ll learn all kinds of useful insight and tricks from this guide. There’s a section dedicated to explaining which item benefits Ozo, which situations he excels in, and which he does not, how to properly level up his skills and use his abilities. There’s also a section that matches up who Ozo works well with in a team composition.



Carry Winners Masters of the Pain Train


Allow me to direct your attention to MaximusPrime’s guide for SAW. SAW is often overlooked by many players due to his lack of mobility or his slow windup speed but what this giant gun-toting soldier lacks in movement he makes up for in sheer firepower. This makes him have arguably the highest damage potential in the game. So for those of you who want to shell out the hurt, then this is the guide for you. Featuring ability breakdowns and explanations on when SAW’s abilities come in handy and when they could be a detriment. There’s also a section that explains which items work best for SAW depending on the situation.



Do you want to dash across the map while sniping the enemy and providing some solid CC? Well then Kha0z’s guide for Vox is the choice for you. This guide is concise and to the point allowing you to get a great understanding of this mobile sniper. There’s a few different item builds laid out for you depending on enemy team composition or if you need a bit more sustainability. There’s also quick breakdown of Vox’s play style, as well as an overview of his abilities along with a few pointers on how to best maximize their effectiveness. Finally there’s a section that explains the item choices listed above giving you further depth and understanding to Vox.

Congrats to the winners =) extremely disappointed I didn't win anything, not even the consolation prizes, considering I put in way too many hours into mine to make it as detailed as possible ): sigh.

Ultimate Guide to the Know Your Role Contest

  • Be active in the forum
  • Keep updating guide if you have one
  • Vote and comment on guides
  • Make a quality guide showing your blood, sweat, and tears in it, not one obviously meant only for the contest

Synergy Heroes When Playing This Game/Contest
MODERATORS
  • Perfect combo because they judge the guides
  • Your only way to win a prize
  • They are all heroes to the Vainglory forum
  • Why Reim for moderators? I mean Dash's picture looks like Reim (just a bit)

Now where is my prize for the "Most Helpful Guide" category? xD


Comments
I'm so glad the guide judges (maybe only Dash?) were pretty understanding for guide writers. People who spent time and effort on their guide recently but didn't win got the giveaway prize (wrote a 6000 word-sh guide not really expecting a prize). Thanks so much!

Note: For those who made a quality guide long ago or a guide in general but didn't win, I believe that you needed to constantly make changes to your guide showing forum activity, because other giveaway winners were very active @Bossboy @Radiance and many others whose guide(s) were constantly on the top of the "Find Guides" page. I guess you reap what you sow, putting hardwork than relying on RNG, thanks so much again moderators for noticing this.

Wow! I didn't expect this. I knew prodigy755 would win :P
His guide was truly amazing and detailed.
Good job to everyone else as well! I have gotten better with at least 3 heroes during February, reading your guides.

I shall update my guide more, because I know 2.2 is coming out! And like always, gg!
