VGL today announced the details for the Autumn Season Qualifier tournaments for NA & EU. The eight teams with the most combined points from this and the prior 128-team VGL qualifiers will be invited expenses paid to the Live Finals in December.
One emerging story from today’s news is the newfound importance of in-game Vainglory teams, utilizing the feature introduced in Update 1.9:
All applications for this tournament will be based on teams created within the Vainglory game itself utilizing the new TEAMS feature introduced in Update 1.9. Only applications corresponding to in-game teams will be considered for this qualifier tournament. Good news: This means your team may now have up to six players based on your in-game team roster and roster changes can be made easily in game until the Oct. 28 application deadline. We encourage you to fill all six player slots in case one of your starters has a scheduling conflict on a particular VGL match day.
