Be a part of the biggest moment in Vainglory history.

From December 14-17, the world’s 12 best teams return to where it all began to compete for the highest honor in Vainglory esports. Not only will the 2017 World Champion be crowned, but you will also experience the global unveiling of Vainglory 5v5 in an epic showmatch, live on stage at the Kallang Theatre in Singapore.

Seven championship teams from across the globe have already qualified: Impunity (Singapore), Elite8 (Southeast Asia), Rox Armada (Korea), ACE Gaming (Korea), Hunters (China), Cloud9 (North America) and DetonatioN Gaming (Japan/wildcard). Five more Worlds spots will be won this Autumn season from China, North America, Europe, South America and a to-be-announced wildcard selection.

Be there for the birth of 5v5 and witness the world champion being crowned, as one team and region achieves Vainglory immortality.


DetonatioN Gaming, the No. 1 team out of Japan, has been selected as the 2017 Vainglory World Championship global wildcard. DetonatioN has consistently been among the top performers in the hyper-competitive East Asia region of Vainglory8, and they return to Worlds looking to capitalize on the experience and success of their performance last year. DetonatioN Gaming finished third in the Summer season of EA Vainglory8 behind ACE Gaming and Rox Armada, both of which have already qualified for Worlds at seasonal champions.

One World Championship wildcard remains, based on North America’s Cloud9 repeating as champions in both the Spring and Summer Unified Championship.
