After an exciting Summer season which saw Cloud9 once again coming out on top as champions, the highest level of Vainglory competition in North America and Europe is back with the Vainglory8 Autumn season starting tomorrow, September 23. Teams from both regions will be competing over the next few weeks for their last chance to earn a coveted spot in the Vainglory World Championship in Singapore at the end of the year. After dominating both the Vainglory Spring and Summer Season Championships, Cloud9 is currently the only Western team to have secured a spot in World Championships in December.
The North American teams competing in the Vainglory8 Autumn season will be Cloud9, Hollywood Hammers, Gankstars, NOVA eSports, Rogue, Team Solomid and Tempo Storm (yes we notice there’s one team missing as well. Stay tuned for a major announcement this weekend!). Meanwhile, the European teams will be Calamity Reborn, Dynasty, Fnatic, G2 Esports, MouseSports, SaltyPotatoes, SK Gaming and QLASH.
European matches will begin at 9 AM PT / 17 BST, while North America will begin competing at 2 PM PT/ 22 BST. Matches will be streamed live across the official Vainglory Twitch, Facebook and YouTube channels. As always, all the latest information on Vainglory8 can be found on vaingloryesports.com.
