Renegades Acquire Infamous Gaming

Renowned esports organization “Detroit Renegades” take their first step into Vainglory with their acquisition of Infamous. The roster is led by Justin “spaghetti” Bersamin and includes Ching “Chingy” Yang, Terence “Tezzaboy98” Leung Cheuk Yin, Adem “SnkEA“ Lebeidi, Thanakit “uNi” Vongmanee, along with Coach and Analyst Bryan “Aeon222” Tay. Bersamin said in an interview:

When we first started our team, it was our goal to come this far in the competitive scene as to be recognized by an organization like Renegades. We have been training ever since the formation of our new team roster and we are ready to show what we are worth.

They will debut under the new banner in a 5V5 show match at Singapore during the upcoming Vainglory Worlds Tournament.

Guinness World Record: Youngest Winner of Major Vainglory Tournament

Probably anyone who follows the competitive scene of Vainglory has heard of Zio. He’s always been touted as the youngest professional Vainglory player who wins major tournaments (especially that under pressure). Well, the Guinness Book of World Records went ahead and made it official by giving him the prize for it! Riley “Zio” Haghian plays the lane/carry position for TribeGamingGG and received the record for his performance at the 2016 North American Spring Season Championship. Congratulations to him!
