Vainglory (Free), easily the most recognizable mobile MOBA, is kicking off its North American and European Vainglory8 Autumn Season tomorrow, so it you enjoy some good MOBA action, you should tune in. Over the new few weeks, teams like Cloud9, Hollywood Hammers, Gankstars, NOVA eSports, Rogue, Fnatic, and G2 Esports will compete for a spot in the World Championship in Singapore, which will take place December 14-17. It’s a pretty tough contest given that only one team per region will qualify for the World Championship, so the stakes are definitely high. European matches will begin at 9AM PST and the North American ones 2PM PST. And, of course, you can watch the matches on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.
Mobile esports continue to be a strange little beast. There’s a lot of money and promotion going into it, but it’s not easy to see how interested mobile gamers are in actually following the matches and tournaments. Some games do a better job than others incorporating their esports side into the day-to-day experience, but there’s still a ways to go.
