Vainglory, the mobile esports multiplayer online battle arena (“MOBA”) will have its World Championships broadcast live on GINX Esports TV.
The World Championships take place between the 13th and 17th of December as they return to Singapore, the place where Vainglory’s alpha was initially launched. The tournament will see 12 teams battle it out at the Kallang Theater for the world title.
The partnership with GINX will see Vainglory’s biggest tournament broadcast live on the television channel which is available in over 40 countries worldwide and in over 55,000,000 homes across the globe. Not only will the competitive action be broadcast, but GINX will also bring footage of the global unveiling of Vainglory’s five versus five mode, something that has been built up for a long, long time.
“Our goal is to help esports games be more visible on TV. We are thrilled to work with Super Evil Mega Corp and give them access to the 55 million homes we are available in.” commented Michiel Bakker, CEO of GINX Esports TV.
GINX are sending a team out to Singapore for the event, with presenter of #OnTheDDL Heather “Naysayerz” Dower flying out with a team to produce content around the event. There’s a lot of familiar faces on the talent lineup for the tournament, with the likes of Aaron “Medic” Chamberlain, Joseph “Munchable” Fenny, Ciernan “Excoundrel” Lowe, Dan Gaskin and Joshua “Dowsey” Dowse all familiar faces to many in the esports world.
Last year at the inaugural Vainglory World Championships, North American stars TSM lost narrowly in the grand final to Phoenix Armada, losing the final game in just nine minutes. They will certainly be hoping to go one better this year but arguably the field is more competitive than ever. It’s undoubtedly set to be an intriguing contest.
Esports Insider says: More good news for Vainglory, and GINX too. We look forward to watching our favourite mobile esports title on the tele – and seeing the content the team over at GINX create around it.
