The Vainglory World Championships has been referred to for quite some time now, as the regional Summer Season Champions all earned their spots to compete.  Today, details for the Championship has finally been released by Super Evil MegaCorp alongside the news on the Autumn Season update!

Set for December 2-4 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the World Championships will bring together the 12 teams representing every Vainglory server region from around the world.  11 of the 12 teams selected will be regional champions, while one wildcard team will be selected based on exceptional performance.  The complete breakdown is as follows:

NORTH AMERICA (3)

    • 2016 Spring champions (Hammers Velocity)
    • 2016 Winter & Summer champions (Team SoloMid)
    • 2016 Autumn Evil Eight Split 2 winner* (TBD)
    • *If the winner has already qualified for Worlds, then the second-place team from Split 2 gets the spot. If the second-place team has already qualified, then the third-place team from Split 2 gets the spot (etc).

What’s interesting to note is that 9 out of the 12 spots have already been secured!  Teams that have yet to qualify and are not in the NA/EU regions can now only cross their fingers and hope that they will be selected as the Wildcard team – although chances are this spot will end up going to a team in the NA/EU region as well.

With the title of “the single best team on Earth” at stake, you can bet that these teams will be doing everything they can to prepare for the big tournament.  We can’t wait to see which 3 teams will be added to the already-stacked roster of competition!
