The Vainglory competitive scene is growing far faster than we ever imagined. The European scene is on fire, with powerhouse teams from R3D, comebacks galore from Unknown, creativity and killer comps from Fietsbellen and so many more making names for themselves. In North America, the lore around meta-setting juggernauts like Gankstars and Nemesis is larger than life, with Vainglorious all-stars and other upstarts posing fierce challenges. And in the rest of the world, teams from Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia and beyond train with ferocity, biding their time for their chance to show the world how dominant their teams and tactics are.
So, it’s with great excitement that we announce the first-ever truly international invitational tournament: the Vainglory Worlds, in person in Seoul, Korea on July 11-15.
The qualifying process for the all-expenses-paid trip to Seoul—competing against the best in the world—will be different in each region:
- EU: The top EU team in the ongoing ESL Cup Series will be invited.
- North America: The winner of the upcoming VGL NA Cup will be invited. Starts Thursday, June 11. Registration now open!
- Southeast Asia: The winner of the upcoming VGL SEA Cup will be invited. Starts Thursday, June 11. Registration closed.
- Korea: To be announced.
- Japan: By invitation.
- China: By invitation.
If your team isn’t included this time, don’t fret. This is only the beginning. There’s no better time to practice hard, form new teams and build your comps and chemistry so you can challenge in all the events to come.
We can’t wait to see who emerges as the best Vainglory team in the world. Be sure to watch the qualifiers leading up to the epic Vainglory Worlds in July! See you in Seoul. —PlayoffBeard
