VG: Entering the Halcyon Fold
11th February 2017
By now we are sure that you will have heard a number of the big eSports organisations have picked up Vainglory teams to compete under their banners. With a flourishing professional scene and established League structure, ‘The Evil 8’ accompanied by a Challenger League, in both North America and Europe has brought Vainglory into the sights of many organisations. With the likes of Rogue, Fnatic, Immortals and Echo Fox all throwing their lot into the biggest touch-screen eSport to date it wouldn’t be too long before exceL got in on the action.
Without further embellishment, it is with extreme pride and fervor that we announce our own VainGlory roster:
Aeroniac has a wealth of experience in the MOBA scene coming from an established League of Legends background. He has played for G2, Mousesports and Rising Lotus and will be a great asset to the roster taking on the role of carry.
In the jungle we are proud to announce corteZ. Having seen success across multiple tournaments that span across a two year career, the experience that he brings will be invaluable as the team heads into the European competitive league.
Perhaps the man with the most experience on the Halcyon Folds is NomadVagabond. Having been playing Vainglory since the Android Beta he has recently been part of the team that took the 2nd spot at the Live Finals in Turkey. Taking the roaming position on the team it will take all of his experience and skill to keep both the lane and jungle under control.
This season the team will be entering into the Challenger League with sights firmly set on The Evil 8 itself. It won’t be long before their journey with exceL eSports begins proper but until then head over to Twitter and let the guys know they have your support. It’s going to be an exciting year for us and we are beyond excited to have Nomad, corteZ and Aeroniac along for the ride.
