The past year of Vainglory eSports is culminating in the very first Vainglory World Championship, where 12 of the top Vainglory teams will clash at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
The 2016 season of Vainglory eSports is wrapping up, and will see the best performers from North America, South America, Europe and Asia come together to determine the best team in the globe during the Vainglory World Championship.
