In this fast-paced 3 vs. 3 MOBA-styled battle, hero knights use elemental powers to gain control over a ghost that can be placed on enemy bases to lower these bases' shields and drain them of their energy.

To win, the player must destroy both enemy bases before their own are destroyed.

MOBAs generally take around a half hour or more. Vanguards introduces a fun, 8-12 minute MOBA experience, great for a quick after-dinner game with family or friends before rushing on with life.

The novelty of this MOBA comes from the draining mechanic of the ghost, because it guarantees short gameplay. Once placed on a base, it is always draining the base it was most recently placed on, even when removed.

The game focuses on map objectives and team fights more than difficult to learn mechanics or complex item systems.

Created by college students as part of the BYU Animation program.

- While on a base, the ghost drains energy out of the base and leaves it vulnerable to additional attack by the opposing team.
- If a base is under attack by the enemy, defending players must stand in the base area to remove the ghost. The shield goes back up immediately when the ghost is released and the base can no longer be directly attacked. The defending team, however, must place the ghost on an enemy base before the ghost will stop draining power from their own base.

In Summary: Bugs + without Good people, and was able to try this game and having experience with other Mobas, I fixed that in this NO: auto-attacks, levels, minions, turrets, jungle monsters, objects. And other things I don't remember. This doesn't mean it's good or bad, it means it's different. You Have 4 abilities that don't consume magic, because there is no magic, nor consume anything but the cooldown that is very short by the way, the "R" is ultimate, I think it takes 5 seconds alone, but not that it is super powerful... In the game you have to take a "ghost" and take it to the enemy altar to unlock it and you can attack while the Phantom damages it, if you have the ghost in your altar, you have to put yourself near the altar and throw it out, you pick it up carefully not to take the ENE Migo before and you take it to the enemy altar, but while you carry it the Phantom continues to drain life at your altar. So, the good thing about this game. Forgive Me If I don't put an enumerated list. The good is its simplicity, simple things are more comfortable to play, especially when you start, in a day and you are accustomed to play as if you had spent weeks. Another good thing about this game is that it is not a "free to play" is a "FREE" game, that means: without "DLC", without expansions, without "aspects"... There's nothing to pay, NOTHING. Touch put the bad things of this game... Prepare to read a lot hehe. Not in Spanish........ (It's a very simple English). No and found anyone to play... Alone and able to play against bots all the time. He Only has three "champions." Despite being a simple game of play, the controls I have been giving problems, this game launches the skills instantly, ie, if you press Q once (press and release fast) you throw the bullet from the champion of fire where is watching the mouse , by default this is the other way to do this that is to "hold" the key pressed, in principle current as and said before, but if you keep the button pressed you can see the area where the skills will fall, but there is no option to press once to point and another To launch or click to launch, do not throw the skills with the click if not with the same key. There Are Many bugs, at the beginning I started to experience the skills, one of them was to move quickly to a site, so I managed to move... Off the map, more specifically, behind a wall, so just start, I stay sandwiched... Then I noticed that sometimes I could not use my skills, for some reason I do not understand, you stop using your skills, was when I was alone against three other enemies, I could move, but could not use a single skill, sometimes threw a , I got to throw 2 before I got caught and killed, I happen the same other times clear. Another thing that left me very bad, to be the mouse, the game uses the same mouse pointer that Windows, the usual white, because it turns out that I can not find it in the game, I say that is invisible, I say that is camouflaged with the environment and I lose sight very often Mind. Maybe the game is still in beta?, I do not know, I can not find where it puts. But it has a very large amount of bugs and the worst thing is that I can not manage as I want. The controls are very unpleasant. The Thing about losing my mouse's position also has merit in my vote on this game. So despite my grief... I DON'T RECOMMEND this game. Despite this, you may want To check for yourselves how to play in a game in which you are unable To spend a hard time.
