Get ready to witness a new series of epic battles between the two best teams from Asia, Europe, and North America! Only the best Wargaming.net League teams from Season I will gather in New York City for the Challenger Rumble on 19 November.
Of the six challengers, two will secure a spot in the Champion Rumble in December, where they will face off against a team from the CIS, as well as the Grand Finals champion: Na`Vi. The winner of the Champion Rumble will receive the lion's share of the 200,000 USD Rumble prize pool, and immediately qualify for the next Grand Finals.
If you happen to be in New York, the place to be is the Altman Building. Entry is absolutely free, but please bear in mind that the number of seats is limited. Of course, the entire event will be streamed LIVE, so do tune in if you're a night owl (or a very early bird) and support our regional champions EL Gaming & B-Gaming!

Taking the stage for Asia and facing off against the top teams of North America, Europe and the CIS will be Korea’s Team ID, the winner of the recent regional qualifier. What better conclusion for this groundbreaking new tournament than a big battle during a major WGL event, right in the heart of Manhattan?
