The Vainglory team has scored a major sponsor thanks to inking a deal with the Amazon AppStore. Amazon will be hosting tournament championships and will be rewarding players with big discounts and bonus Amazon Coins, the premium currency used to buy in-game items.

The addition of the Amazon AppStore comes alongside the announcement of a multi-year deal with Twitch.tv earlier this year.

The Amazon Vainglory Summer Season begins today with an all-new esports structure. Twitch and Super Evil Megacorp are announcing “The Evil Eight,” a new tier of elite competition in North America and Europe featuring only the region’s Top 8 teams at any given time. These teams will battle each weekend on twitch.tv/vainglory in eight-team tournaments, earning points in championship standings. Alongside will be a community-run “Challenger” tier of competition, with weekly Evil Eight challenger battles. This two-tiered competitive structure creates many more opportunities to broadcast clashes of elite teams such as Team Solomid, G2 eSports, Team Secret, mousesports and SK Gaming, while giving up-and-coming teams a path to their own tournament victories and ultimately the seasonal championship.
