Sirius to Represent NA in Korean League, August - September
If you read carefully, you may have noticed a mention of a certain league in the recent Redbull e-Sports article about Vainglory. Well, it's real! The mentioned league is the first official Vainglory league and it will take place in Seoul, Korea. All games will be filmed locally, hence not many news about it in the U.S. Hopefully with time we will see these in the US and EU as well so that more teams can participate.
Thankfully, Sirius' participation in Vainglory World Invitational allowed the team to skip preliminaries and secure a seed in the league. Today all the ducks were aligned in a row, and the team is going! Team Unknown, determined to avenge their loss at the Invitational, will be able to join us there as well.
We usually post professionally-worded news. But this is amazing! Sirius and Unknown will live, practice, and share once-in-a-lifetime experiences together while competing on a professional level for prizes that matter - the prize pool is about $90,000, with $35,000 going to the 1st place. Vainglory is starting to look like a real e-Sport.
Congratulations to IraqiZorro, CullTheMeek, and gabevizzle! They will be in Korea August 11 - September 23, playing their first league game on August 16.
Bon voyage! Make North America proud. You represent the hopes and dreams of many.
