Don’t call it a comeback – Team SoloMid (TSM) reclaimed their spot as Vainglory’s top team in North America by winning the 2016 Summer Season Championship!
After a disappointing finish during the Spring Championships, the revamped TSM team of Michael “FlashX” Valore (learn more about FlashX from our interview with him!), Lechaun “VONC’ Jiao and Raul ‘BestChuckNA’ Montano-Chaidez delivered up to expectations and more during the weekend at the Amazon Meeting Center in Downtown Seattle. Going undefeated heading into the Finals, TSM faced their final challenge against defending champions Hammer Velocity. Down 2 games to 0, Hammers Velocity fought toe-to-toe against TSM heading into the 20th minute – but an Ace in the jungle from TSM sealed the match, series, and championship.
Aside from winning the NA Championship, TSM also earned themselves a spot at the first-ever Vainglory World Championship tournament taking place in December. They will be joined by the winner of the EU Summer Championships, which will be taking place at the ESL Esports Arena in Cologne, Germany this weekend! Be sure to catch the action live on Vainglory’s Twitch Channel starting tomorrow!
