It’s time to see just who the best World of Tanks players really are.
The first ever Wargaming.net League Grand Finals begin today (in just a few hours, at 3 am PT/6 am ET) in Warsaw and run through April 6. Sponsored by Alienware, Razer and PayPal, the event features 14 top teams competing for a prize pool of $300,000.
“In the first year of the Wargaming.net League, we’ve seen tears of joy and tears of anger from some of the best World of Tanks players around the entire world,” Wargming eSports Director of Europe and North America Mohamed Fadl said via press release. “The Grand Finals in Poland are going to be the ultimate culmination of that intense competition, and we cannot wait to finally crown our very first world champion.”
The lineup in the Grand Finals consists of the top two teams from six different regions — including Fnatic and Simp from North America, Virtus.pro and Synergy from Europe, ARETE and NOA from South Korea, PvP Super Friends and UAD from Southeast Asia, and Na’Vi and RR-UNITY from the CIS — along with two wildcard teams. If one team manages to survive all three days of battles without a loss, it could claim over $100,000 of the prize pool.
Wargaming will live-stream the Grand Finals in English, Polish, Russian, Korean and Chinese on its dedicated event website. The English broadcast team is led by Mitch “Uber” Leslie, who will be joined by multiple casters, analysts and pro players offering insight over the course of the event. Fans in Poland will be able to watch the action for free in the movie theaters at the Zlote Tarasy shopping center.
