For 2017, Asian esports will be getting some love with the EVIL 8 tournament format finding its way into the Chinese, South East Asian and East Asian servers. From the Vainglory website:

  1. China, East Asia, and Southeast Asia servers will each have a Vainglory 8 league and Challenger league. East Asia will have Challenger leagues in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan/ Hong Kong region. All matches will be played online.
  2. For Spring season 2017, format and rules will follow Vainglory 8 2017 format & rules (SEA rules, EA rules). Format and rules are subject to change next season–we will be making adjustments so that the format is compatible with each community.

For full details on how to watch the tournaments and how to compete, be sure to give the SEMC article a read.

ice COMPENSATION for sea players:

Following the release of Update 2.2, SEA players were denied many hours of play because the servers were down, again. This prevented them from grinding and utilizing any boosts they bought before servers were pulled into maintenance. To compensate players for this inconvenience, SEMC will be granting all SEA players a free chest containing 200 ICE (expires on March 13th at 7:00 p.m. PDT). Additionally, all activated boosts for SEA players since Update 2.2 will be reactivated for a week.
