Vainglory team Infamous joins the Renegades family
Southeast Asia’s Team Infamous is joining the Detroit Renegades, an esports organization headquartered in North America. The Vainglory team will bear their new Team Renegades moniker at the upcoming 2017 World Championship in Singapore this December, where they will help unveil the game’s anticipated 5v5 mode in a showcase match.
Infamous are a young but widely-known force in the growing Vainglory community. Their history charts back to Season 2 of the International Premier League with a series of top 3 wins, in addition to a sixth-place finish at the inaugural World Championship last year.
For 2017, they placed second at the SEA Summer Championship in Jakarta, losing out to Singapore’s Team Impunity. However, they soon got their revenge at the recent SEA Mobile Major 2017, where they claimed the championship in a 2-1 victory.
Their winning ingredient possibly lies with 16-year-old team leader Justin “spaghetti” Bersamin, a Filipino based in Singapore. A regular Vainglory streamer (his last stream attracted eight thousand views), Justin was present for all of Infamous’ achievements, bringing both skill and experience to the Renegades roster. His former teammates, Amos “Quatervois” Ker Zhen Shun and Tan “deftQ” Jing Yu, are now at Impunity.
Team Renegades are:
- Justin “spaghetti” Timothy Carmona Bersamin (16), SG – Laner (Skye/Koshka/Taka)
- Tan “Chingy” Ching Yang (17), SG – Jungler (Glaive)
- Adam “SnkEA” Lebeidi (15), AU – Roamer (Lance)
- Terence “Tezzaboy98” Leung (19), AU – Roamer Substitute (Lyra)
- Thanakit “uNi” Vongmanee (17), TH – Jungler Substitute (Ringo/Vox/Taka)
- Tay “Aeon222” Jun Long Bryan (15), SG – Coach/Analyst, Carry Substitute (Kestrel)
The Vainglory World Championship 2017 will be held at Singapore’s Kallang Theatre from 14 to 17 December, where the top 12 finalists from around the world will compete for a US$140,000 (approximately S$189,000) prize pool.
Registrations for the free entry tickets are now open. Those itching to spend can drop S$100 for a pre-order package that includes an exclusive hoodie, event t-shirt, and the daily free gifts.
