As Singapore prepares to host the upcoming Vainglory World Championships, Super Evil Megacorp has finally released their Update 2.9 for Vainglory, the world’s leading mobile esport. This new update introduces us to Churnwalker, a mysterious new hero whose ranged attacks keep opponents vulnerable throughout the match. Through abilities like Torment and Trespass, the new hero can also move towards unsuspecting victims and yank them towards him with ease.

Also, to celebrate the kick-off of Autumn season, a spooky “Scarecrow” Baptiste skin, as well as a “Fly or Die” Baron skin have arrived to the fold. Lyra celebrates the Autumn Moon festival in this update with three new skins: “Moon Queen,” “Moon Empress” and “Moon Goddess,” each with a unique robe and distinctive antlers.

The Kallang Theatre in Singapore will be hosting the tournament from December 14 through December 17. While the game has gained globall traction in recent times, being featured in keynote launches of leading mobile devices such as the iPhone 6 and the recent Galaxy Note 8, the Singapore World Championships represents a homecoming of sorts to the mobile MOBA. Singapore was where they launched the first beta of the game – then called Kindred, on 18 December 2013.

Adding to the occasion of the event is Team Impunity, a homegrown team of esports players, who are looking forward to fighting for the world title in their very own backyard.
