They'll be battling over a $300K prize pool, competing in a slightly revamped tournament format that Wargaming has designed with the help of pro gamers. It's intended to make battles more streamlined and thrilling.
"With no chance of a draw," Wargaming explains in a press release sent over to us today, "opponents must take the initiative and go all out if they want to be crowned victorious."
That's what I look for in my sports events. The 2015 Grand Finals will take place at thein Warsaw, and is free to the general public, who can take part in various other events when they're not watching epic bouts of tank destruction.
"The Red Bull stand will provide World of Tanks Blitz in-game competitions," says Wargaming. "The MGT-20 will offer team competitions of up to 14 players across separate gaming stations; attendees can sign-up on-site during the tournament and take advantage of the activities during breaks. Finally, paysafecard will be testing fans’ tank knowledge with their World of Tanks quizzes."
The full list of competing finalists will be announced during a seeding ceremony on April 2, to be broadcast on the Wargaming League's officialTwo teams will be chosen from each continental region, plus two teams selected as Wild Cards for "outstanding performance and/or other qualities".
