The touchscreen-based MOBA “Vainglory” is hoping to climb its way to find its niche in the competitive MOBA scene during PAX West 2016. The Vainglory Summer Season Championships will run September 2-4, 2016, and will be hosted at Amazon’s event center in Seattle. PAX attendees can get in for free, and tickets are open to the public for $5.
Additionally, the European championships will run in ESL’s Esports Arena in Germany on September 9-11, 2016. Attendees can find tickets at the Eventbrite page for $12.60. The European tournament is not running in conjunction with another event, unlike the Seattle tournament.
Both tournaments will place the top eight teams from their respective regions. From there, the winners will qualify to participate in the fall season for a chance to place in the first 12-team World Championship this December.
Vainglory is a touchscreen competitive MOBA, comparable to “League of Legends.” The game’s publisher, Super Evil Megacorp, has claimed the game has the largest audience for a competitive tablet game. “Vainglory” can be downloaded for free on select Android and iOS tablet devices.
