Introducing the 2017 Vainglory team
It is finally time. Our Vainglory team starts the new season this weekend in the Vainglory 8 Spring season. After some promising results in the last season we are hungry to defend our spot in the most prestigious Vainglory league.
It was with a little envy that we looked at the Vainglory Worlds in December which we missed by a close margin. This year we will try even harder with the newest addition to our team. Alican "GreatkhALI" Üzüm returns to our roster after a short stay at Gankstars. "I had a great season at Gankstars where we reached the Worlds 2016. It was a dream come true and I will do everything I can to achieve this dream with mousesports this season", says GreatkhALI and adds: "I think with the right mindset and good preparations we have all the tools to play a great season. It's going to be an exciting year with the new teams in the Vainglory 8." Alongside Alican our roster will consist of longtime mouz players Daniel "Asater" Elkouby and our swiss team captain Emir "Emirking" Dedushi.
The lineup will meet old and new opponents in the first split. Vainglory veterans like SK Gaming, G2 Esports or Team Secret are fierce opponents and the newcomers to Vainglory like Fnatic will make the competition even tougher. "The new Vainglory 8 season is going to be amazing. With the new teams coming in, there are going to be some old rivalries from other games transferred into Vainglory. It makes me happy to see that the game gets more and more popular. Its pace and action are great for viewers and i am sure our fans will have a lot of fun supporting our boys this year", says mousesports CEO Cengiz Tüylü.
The first game of the season will be a real test, as we face record champion Team Secret at 6pm CET on Saturday. Follow the games via Twitch.tv/vainglory and get the latest updates on our regular social media channels and on the brand-new mousesports Vainglory Facebook page.
