After a hard-fought weekend of games, we squared off again East Asia’s ACE Gaming in the Vainglory World Championship Grand Finals. While ACE was a worthy opponent, 5 games later we came out on top as the 2017 Vainglory World Champions.
We’re excited to have brought back North America’s very first Vainglory World Championship!
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve acquired Immortals’ spot in the Vainglory 8, and that we’ll be retaining their championship-caliber roster going forward. After the Unified Finals, in which Immortals toppled TSM and made a statement by placing second, we worked quickly to acquire their star-studded roster after the possibility arose of a transfer. We’re ecstatic to announce our official Tribe Vainglory roster – welcome to the Tribe!
Mark “HotSauceUT” Harlan : “I am incredibly excited to be joining Tribe Gaming. We are sad to see Immortals leaving the Vainglory scene, but we part ways on excellent terms and wish them the best. We join Tribe with a unified vision of winning worlds, and we look forward to working together to achieve that goal. “
Chief Pat: “It’s not often a roster of this caliber becomes available in Vainglory, and after watching these guys tear it up at the Unified Finals, I’m pumped to have them join the Tribe. All four players are world-class – and with HotSauce’s leadership, we have lofty expectations as we look ahead into autumn and the World Championships.I’m looking forward to supporting them at Tribe going forward, and I’m excited to see what they can do with a full season of Vainglory 8.”
Make sure to tune in to the Vainglory 8 at 2pm PST later today, as we take on Team Solo Mid in the opening match of the Autumn season.
