The Vainglory World Championship is coming in hot, with the best teams from all regions globally aiming to claim the title of world champions when they compete in Singapore from the 14th to the 17th of December. During 2017, the North American region has captured much of the spotlight from the Vainglory community, due to heated competition amongst many of its top teams along with a sizeable growth in its level of Vainglory play. At the 2016 World Championship, the three NA teams that competed all placed in the top 4, however were overwhelmed by the superior skill of Phoenix Armada (now ROX Armada) from East Asia, who claimed the inaugural title of world champions over Team SoloMid. This sparked a rivalry between the two regions, especially with Gankstars Sirius and Hammers Velocity placing third and fourth respectively. With the North American region performing much better internationally this year, and East Asia’s international form questioned for the first time, the three representatives of NA may well be the favourites to win the 2017 World Championship.
