Wargaming have announced the dates for the Wargaming.net League 2016 Grand Finals, which will take place in Warsaw, Poland April 8th and 9th.
“The Wargaming.net League Grand Finals represents the pinnacle of World of Tanks eSports,” said Mohammed Fadl, Head of Global Competitive Gaming, Wargaming. “During the 2015–2016 season, the WGL has given out over $3 million in prizes. For this year’s Grand Finals, we are putting up another impressive cash prize. We’ll see the best teams, taking to our biggest stage, with their reputations on the line.”
Twelve elite eSports teams will take to the stage with the top two teams from North America, Europe, CIS, and Asia—plus three wildcards—and one team from China all competing over the $300,000 prize pool. With the new Tier X format rolling out, audiences can expect to see the biggest and best tanks in an intense event that’s not to be missed. Throwing in a maximum number of 68 Tier points to play with and an increased match time of 10 minutes (previously seven), teams will have to go back to the drawing board to reinvent their game plans.
Last year over 2.6 million fans attending the event and watched live from around the world, so with 2015 being quite a hit, 2016 should be even bigger.
