NEW CHALLENGERS: HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

Just because Vainglory8 SA’s teams are solidified, doesn’t mean you can’t get involved in Autumn season’s action. Teams can enter the fray by joining Challenger Battles on September 30 and October 28. Matches start at 5PM UTC -3 and the top three seeds of Challenger Battles will go toe-to-toe with the 6th, 7th and 8th seeded Vainglory8 teams for the chance to earn a spot next split of the Autumn season.
