The Vainglory Invitational Series (VIS) is the premier league of the North American Vainglory competitive scene. Six of the top organizations in the region have been invited to compete for an entire season. Each week, a team will play one Best of 3 match on stream. The matches will be broadcasted on Mobcrush and Twitch and casted by our Broadcast Team. Follow our Mobcrush channel by clicking here.
The following organizations have been invited for the inaugural Spring 2016 season:
The goal behind creating the Vainglory Invitational Series was to promote the growth of eSports in the Vainglory scene. ESports is very much driven by the strong organizations that provide the infrastructure, support and management that helps talented players achieve a higher level of success.
For this reason, we have selected the most stable organizations with the deepest rosters to compete this season, rather than the top six most individually skilled teams. The invited organizations are likely the best to handle the punches and blows of a long and rigorous season. The invited organizations were most likely to withstand typical organizational struggles and issues such as personal life circumstances, vacations, invitations to compete in VIPL and roster changes that may derail otherwise skilled teams without the infrastructure to support them.
What's next for VIS?
Our goal is to run a successful pilot Spring 2016 Season, and hopefully:
Expand our league to eight teams;
Expand the prize pool; and
Expand the budget to so that we could create an independent website, hire a management staff and implement statistics.
If you feel that your eSports organization has what it takes to compete in the Vainglory Invitational Series, please stay tuned for updates regarding the Summer Season.
