Super Evil Megacorp, developers of Vainglory, crowned team Phoenix Armada as the first-ever Vainglory World Champions this weekend.
The team defeated North America’s Team SoloMid (TSM) 4-2 in the best-of-seven Grand Finals at the sold-out TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
The Vainglory World Championships were held in partnership with Twitch and peaked at the third highest game being streamed on the platform during the weekend. The event took place throughout the weekend at the Hollywood’s iconic TCL Chinese Theater, and this was a first of its kind event for esports at the venue.
The Championship hosted the twelve best teams from North America, Europe, Asia and South America for three days of intense competition and the culmination of the competitive year in Vainglory esports.
Esports Insider says: Vainglory is set for a big 2017, and Phoenix Armada look well placed to capitalise on the game’s momentum.
