The Vainglory autumn season of eSports tournaments is in full flow with the North American tournament set to go down from December 4 to December 6. Here is why Vainglory is a must-play MOBA experience and why the SHIELD Tablet K1 edition is the ultimate way to play the game.
Vainglory is a MOBA or multiplayer online battle arena game. There are several such games that PC and Mac gamers already obsessively indulge in such as Dota 2 and League of Legends. So great is their following that professional leagues have been set up and the winning teams of these eSports tournaments can win huge cash prizes.
Developer Super Evil Megacorp decided that touch screen devices were underutilized and set about creating the ultimate MOBA for tablets!
In Vainglory, two teams of players battle it out each attempting to destroy the enemy’s base while also defending their own. Each team consists of three human-controlled players with additional AI controlled creatures called minions helping to battle the opposing team and soak up some of their firepower.
Super Evil Megacorp exceeded all expectations, creating a game that has become so popular that it has spawned its own prestigious competitive leagues. And Vainglory plays great on SHIELD, too with Super Evil Megacorp’s Kristian Segerstrale explaining that “The NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 performance and widescreen viewing is great for playing Vainglory.”
The reasons why the SHIELD Tablet K1 is the go-to platform for Vainglory gamers are many. First there’s its gorgeous screen featuring eight inches of vibrant widescreen viewing over which the tablet pumps full HD out at a resolution of 1920×1200.
In terms of power, this tablet is a beast. The Tegra K1 processor is a powerful mobile processor delivering console quality graphics and even some of the graphical features found in NVIDIA’s GeForce GPUs.
Additionally, serious gamers can plug in an OTG cable in order to access wired Internet connections, a feature that is highly desirable for competitive gaming.
Get yourself a SHIELD Tablet K1, download Vainglory and who knows? It might not be long before you and your friends are competing for big bucks in the big leagues. You can download Vainglory on NVIDIA SHIELD now from Google Play for free.
