We Are Ardent


Ardent is comprised of a group of friends with a similar mission - to promote a healthy VainGlory community. Our organization is equally focused on competitive and casual game play - and wants to represent the best sides of each. Most importantly, Ardent is an organization ran by its members and democracy rules. No member is more important than another and decisions are made as a group.

Our goals are to facilitate the needs of our members, both competitive and casual. We want our competitive members to be the very best, and empower our casual members (aka ambassadors) to positively influence and promote the VainGlory community as a whole. We have created, and want to maintain a familial environment of trust, respect, and friendship.

  • Position: Support | Main: Adagio

  • Long time MOBA player starting with Dota as a custom game in Warcraft 3. Transitioned to Dota 2 when it released on Steam and played competitively for 9 months. Downloaded Vainglory in Mid October when it was exclusively for the SEA Server. After taking Leadership of Team Venom, merged with Gankstars on February 2, 2015.

  • BrizzleMcFizzle

  • Position: Support | Mains: Fortress

  • BrizzleMcFizzle is the best (and only) live streaming video game playing hotdog in North America. To avoid detection, she masquerades at work in her human costume - but reveals her true hotdog-glorious mustard covered form at night. She has always loved video games, but alas, sausages are not known for their dexterity. While she's been obsessed with various genres of video games, her current obsession is VainGlory. You'll find her in the fold as any position, but support is BAE. Watch her streaming most days on Twitch or Mobcrush.

  • Sophie808

  • Position: Support | Main: Fortress, Adagio

  • Vainglory is my first MOBA! I love playing with people who have the same passion for VG as I do! I am a happy girl who likes to laugh, smile, and enjoy the company of others. I hope to stream very soon, so please look out for it. ^.^

  • I have been playing mobas for about a decade and have played most of them till my good friends ShinKaigan and DartxIcexDragon introduced me to this game. I fell in love with VG and its community. I tend to mod for most VG twitch streams and am now an employee for SEMC. ^_^

  • GreeenRangerr

  • Position: All | Mains: Vox, Koshka, Adagio, Fortress

  • I am new to MOBA's entirely, but when I picked up VainGlory for the first time, I dropped all other titles. As VainGlory has grown as a game I have grown up alongside it, both in skill and in my love for the community. My fvorite thing about the game is the level of involvment the Developers have with "us" as a community. If I could be any character in the game in reallife it would have to be "Vox" because even though he has felt the nerf hammer more than any other hero, Vox is still Bae <3

  • DawnEclypse

  • Position: Jungle/Support | Main: Joule, Taka, and Jungle hero

  • Originally from Lebanon, a country in the Middle East, but am now living and going to college in Canada. I originally got into video games playing Call of Duty Black Ops, when my dad bought me a PS3. I was so addicted my dad actually smashed the console so I couldn't play anymore. I eventually got an Xbox and started playing CoD again and was about to make it into the competitive scene when I found VainGlory and that became my new obsession. I'm 18 years old and am a friendly person who tries hard in matches. When I'm not playing VainGlory I like playing sports and going to the gym.

  • Queen Lily

  • Position: Support/Jungle Carry | Main: Catherine, Fortress, Taka, Koshka

  • I first started playing Vainglory when my school had given us iPads and I fell in love. After just playing I decided to go check out Twitch and my love for the community became almost instant! The games I had played before were console based and I have never been a competitive lpayer. This was my first ever MOBA and it introduced me to some of the best people I have ever met!

  • Shifts

  • TheRealLucifer

  • Position: Support | Main: All Support Heroes

  • My gaming career started when Call of Duty 4 came out for the Xbox and I played every COD game that followed. I'm relatively new to MOBAs however Vainglory is not my first MOBA. I started playing MOBAs when I stumbled upon League of Legends, however I grew to dislike the community and looked for something better. Luckily the day I bought my first iPhone happened to be the day that Vainglory came out and I stumbled upon it while browsing the AppStore and immediately fell in love and haven't stopped playing

  • keldegar

  • Ponzu

  • Position: Lane/Jungle | Main: Celeste | WP Catherine

  • I've been playing Moba's for a long time. I started with Dota then Warcraft 3 custom map. I've been playing that since solo mid wasn't actually meta. It was solo top or solo bot and hope you do'nt go against a dual lane! But I've since transitionedfrom PC gaming to Mobile gaming and have been playing Vainglory religiously at least once a day every day.

  • Jonobie

  • Position: Lane | Main: Ringo | Koshka | Catherine

  • I started playing video games since 1992 when Super Mario 3 on the original Nintendo and I was hooked on video games. Huge on story based game (Zelda, Final Fantasy, Uncharted, Metal Gear, Crash Bandicoot, and other). It wasn't until 2004 that I played my first Moba, D.O.T.A. a modded game on Warcraft 3. Haven't played MOBA since until I watched the apple keynote where SEMC presented a game called Vainglory. I couldn't wait until the game came out and been playing since. Not the best player, but always wanting to improve. Are you better? Good, I know I can learn something out of our match. Looking forward to play you! GG Vamos!
