Vainglory, one of the esports titles in the burgeoning mobile-MOBA genre, has kicked off its Autumn season.
Players be able to earn unique in-game rewards during the Fall season.
Their esports calendar also kicks off with regional tournaments in both the Americas and Europe to join the next season of the International Premier League in Korea.

The growth of Vainglory and its respective leagues and invitationals has been quick, but its infrastructure still has a long way to go.
“I wouldn’t advise people leave school to become a professional Vainglory player just yet,” he said to VentureBeat. “But we try our very best to support the community. What has been fun the growth of the community. The prize pool started at $30,000. Now one has $150,000. That’s the evolution in six months. The teams are getting better sponsorship deals.”
It will be interesting to see the evolution of Vainglory as time moves on. Very few esports organizations have even given a cursory glance at the game thus far, but that could change as more money is being injected into the scene via these new leagues.
