VIPL_500The Vainglory International Premier League returns May 3 with 12 incredible teams from around the world meeting in a clash of metas and talent. For the first time, VIPL will showcase the best of South America, as Amaterasu Gaming joins the fray. Amaterasu Gaming has won every major championship in the region, including VGL SA and the Vainglory Masters. Now, they’ll get their first opportunity to prove Vainglory’s South America scene can compete with — and beat — anyone in the world.

The quality only begins there. VIPL also features original champions GankStars Sirius (NA), RAGE Vainglory Japan Cup winners Team GL, well-known multi-title winning Hunters (China), Shiversteel & Vainglory World Series winners INFAMOUS (SEA) … and of course, Vainglory World Invitational winners Invincible Armada (Korea). With the Korea-based VIPL now in its third season, the pressure and opportunity has never been greater for INV to finally claim the VIPL championship. After coming so close time and again, can they finally do it? They’ll have to fight through a fierce group and overcome a deep, seasoned set of potential opponents to do so.

The action runs May 3 to June 5 on multiple language-based OGN Twitch channels. Groups will be determined by random lottery just before the start of the tournament. Don’t miss a moment of the action!
