Golden Ticket & 5V5 Early Access

What is a Golden Ticket?

Golden Tickets are the only guaranteed entry system into Vainglory 5V5 Early Access. If you have a Golden Ticket, you will be among the first people ever to set foot on the new map and experience its wonders… and dragons.


I got a Golden Ticket in game! What do I do now?

Congratulations! Hang tight. When Early Access opens, you'll know it as the game mode will become available to only you and others with Golden Tickets.


How long can a Golden Ticket be used, how long is 5V5 Early Access going to last?

One Golden Ticket grants you access to the entire Early Access period. If you get a Golden Ticket after Early Access has begun, you'll be able to participate in the entire remaining Early Access period. Early Access ends when Vainglory 5V5 becomes available to the general public. At that time, 5V5 will be free and completely ungated to everyone (no Golden Ticket needed at that time)!


What is the difference between the Golden Ticket and 5V5 Early Access?

Golden Tickets are the guaranteed entry system into Vainglory 5V5 Early Access. 5V5 Early Access is a lottery from which Golden Ticket winners will be drawn. We will conduct multiple drawings, so you have multiple chances of being randomly selected for a Golden Ticket.


If I got a Golden Ticket, does that mean I could play 5V5 earlier than the pre-registration people?

Golden Ticket winners will be selected in random lotteries from the pre-registration list as well. They are all the same type of Golden Tickets with timing spread out through multiple drawings.


What if I win a Golden Ticket AND get selected by Pre-registration? Can I give one away?

If you win a Golden Ticket, you will not be able to get another one because your account will already be in the "winner" state.


Does everyone who pre-registered get a founding 5V5 badge?

YES! Everyone who pre-registers and who follows the instructions that will be given through e-mail when 5V5 is released will be eligible for the 5V5 Badge. You do NOT need a Golden Ticket to get the 5V5 Founding badge.


Will I need a Golden Ticket or to open Mystery Chests to play 5V5 when it's released to the public?

NO. Golden Tickets are for Early Access only. Following the conclusion of the Early Access period, we will release Vainglory 5V5 to the general public. At that time, 5V5 will be fully ungated and free. You will not need a ticket or any payment to play Vainglory 5V5. Golden Tickets are just for fun for those who want a chance to get into the new map early.
