Vainglory 5v5 Hails the Arrival of ‘No Compromises’ Gaming on Mobile

Vainglory is celebrating the launch of their new 5v5 mode on February 13th, as the only undiluted, no-compromises MOBA on mobile. To that end, they’ve entered into two strategic partnerships that will boost their dominance in the esports domain in 2018 and beyond. As Vainglory heads into its biggest esports year yet, a partnership with ESP Gaming will bring the top-tier league of Vainglory Esports, reintroduced today as the Vainglory Premier League, to a new home in Las Vegas. ESP Gaming is the world’s premier competitive gaming content company with experience producing world-class events including the Olympics, X Games, NFL and World Series of Poker. Having recently onboarded a number of esports veterans, ESP Gaming will make Vainglory its flagship production title for mobile esports in its new, state-of-the-art Vegas studio. In addition, Super Evil Megacorp is partnering with Razer, with their gamer-first devices and peripherals.

“Super Evil and Razer share a common belief that gaming is coming to mobile fast and hard” said Tom Moss, GM and SVP of Mobile at Razer. “Vainglory’s fast-paced gameplay, required precision and stunning graphics truly shine on the Razer Phone, and core gamers no longer need to sacrifice anything when playing on a mobile device.”

And concerning ESP Gaming, Jeff Liboon had this to say:

“We’re excited to work together with Super Evil Megacorp as the exclusive production partner for Vainglory Esports and bring our player-focused storytelling to fans of the world’s ultimate MOBA title on mobile,” said Jeff Liboon, President of ESP Gaming. “We are leveraging decades of live sports and gaming expertise to create the best esports content for one of the most passionate fan bases in all of gaming.”

Building on the momentum of a successful World Championship in Singapore, the inaugural season of the Vainglory Premier League will commence in June this year. The regular season will follow an extended preseason designed to give Vainglory Esports organizations sufficient opportunity to transition and expand their 3v3 player rosters to accommodate 5V5 play. The new Vainglory Premier League will evolve the Vainglory Esports structure and schedule, moving to a double-round-robin with midseason and end-of-season playoffs, along with a single relegation tournament and regional championships will qualify teams for the annual World Championship.

“We built Vainglory with the firm belief that mobile audiences deserve game experiences every bit as amazing as players have on PC and console, and that remains our mission,” said Kristian Segerstrale, CEO of Super Evil Megacorp. “A short time ago, being able to run Vainglory 5V5 at 120 FPS on a device like the Razer Phone with a breathtaking map, 3M+ polygons and more than 200 million actors with custom animations was unheard of. However, it’s now reality, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
