"World of Tanks is a perfect match for eSports, thanks to its addicting combination of team-based tactics and intense action," said Caleb Fox, Wargaming.net North America's head of eSports. "The launch of the Wargaming.net League North America is going to give all of our players in this region their chance to show that they have what it takes to be considered the best of the best."
