Singapore is going to play host to the second world championship finals for Vainglory at the end of this year, with a US$140,000 prize pool!

The top 12 Vainglory teams will face off for said prize at the Kallang Theatre from 14 -17 December, where they will deck it out in front of a live audience, while the finals will be streamed over Facebook, YouTube and Twitch for global audiences.

The first world championships for the game took place in Hollywood last year, with a somewhat smaller US$120,000 prize pool.

“We are bringing Vainglory back to its first home,” said Ms Heini Vesander, executive producer for eSports at Super Evil Megacorp. Vainglory was originally named Kindred when it was still in beta when it launched in Singapore back in 2013.

The 12 teams that will be duking it out were picked from over 5,000 competing teams over six regions: North America, South America, Europe, Southeast Asia, East Asia and China.
Singapore, of course, will have its own players from Team Impunity consisting of this roster of players.
