Vainglory: We Are Going to London!
The North American Vainglory8 Spring 2017 season has been very exciting to keep up with. The top eight teams in NA have been fighting it out to see who will make it to London for the Spring Live Championship taking place May 19 - 21. As of today, GankStars sits in 4th place, behind Cloud9, Hammers Esports, and Team SoloMid. TSM currently holds a decent lead over the rest of the top 8, the closest behind them being Hammers Esports.
This past weekend featured Week 1 of Split 2 for the Vainglory8, and the games played were exciting to say the least. We started the weekend facing Immortals, beating them in a well fought three-game set 2-1. Moving on to the semi-finals to face Hammers Esports, we unfortunately lost the set 2-0. The GankStars squad ended the weekend finishing the tournament in 4th place, losing to Tempo Storm in the 3rd place match 2-1.
Though this past weekend may not have been the best for the Vainglory team, we picked up enough points to qualify for the Spring Unified Championship in London two weeks ahead of regular season ending! We are very excited to meet our many fans in Europe; pick up your tickets today before they sell out!
