The tournament begins May 13, with the top two teams competing in the finals on June 14. The winners will recieve a cash prize and NVIDIA SHIELD tablets. The action will pit players against each other in 3-vs-3 multiplayer combat to destroy each others' Vain crystal. There will be nine qualifier cups and then the top eight teams will head to the elimination rounds before the final showdown.

Vainglory will be the first purely mobile MOBA tournament in ESL history, and we can’t wait to see the matches starting next week, streamed live from our studio in Frankfurt,” said Jens Hilgers, Founder and Chairman of ESL, in a press release. “We are strong believers in the futureof eSports on touch devices, and we have chosen Vainglory as the first mobile MOBA as it delivers AAA quality, greatly balanced competitive gameplay, best in class touch controls, and last but not least, is developed by a rockstar team with eSports in their DNA.”
