Today, we're pumped to announce our entry into Vainglory, Super Evil Megacorp's record-breaking mobile MOBA.
Joining our roster for the upcoming season of competition are Rommel 'Hardek' Soriano, Lukas Shawn 'chombo305' Perry and Jesus Anthony 'Gaspy' Tabares. The team brings a wealth of experience across the title, having played at the highest level since the game's beta in 2014. For more information, visit their roster page.
Alongside NRG, Echo Fox, Fnatic, Immortals and Rogue will also join the Spring season that kicks off in March. There's plenty of action to be seen before that though, as to celebrate the arrival of the new organizations, Super Evil will be hosting all five teams at the company’s “Super Evil Lair” in San Mateo for a “Run the Gauntlet” Preseason Invitational on Feb. 26.
To win the tournament, a team will need to overcome all the other pro newcomers. Then, one “final boss” will remain: a Super Evil trio featuring former VIPL Champion and legendary super-sub ShinKaigan.
“These are some of the most diverse and high-profile teams in all of esports,” said Kristian Segerstrale, CEO of Super Evil Megacorp. “To have them not only recognize Vainglory’s growth over the past year, but also create their first-ever teams dedicated to a mobile game, means the competition in the 2017 season is going to be more fierce than ever before. These teams are owned and operated by some of the most respected names in sports and entertainment, and there’s tremendous opportunity for everyone involved to usher in the next defining moments of esports.”
