Wargaming SEA has announced their very first league in Asia Pacific, TanksAsia Masters – an unprecedented foray into the global eSports scene to bridge the gap between the World of Tanks' gaming communities.
The league signifies a key milestone for Wargaming SEA and it aims to cement itself as one of the staple titles in the competitive gaming scene. Catering exclusively to Asia Pacific (APAC) players, this league is unique in the fact that it provides for all forms of team make up and offers players from different parts of the region the opportunity to represent their countries in the National series and play with their preferred teams.
TanksAsia Masters deviates from the norm, running on a points system as opposed to the standard tournament format. Divided into 3 levels, Masters, Regular and Challenge, an even playing field is set up for all who seek to reign. The league will consist of three seasons. The Open Season will act as a qualifier to the TanksAsia Season One and the subsequent season will see the top 8 APAC National teams being seeded into Master Play-off to battle it out for fame, glory and a chance to walk away with a piece of an incredible total prize pool of USD300,000.
Registration will be closed on April 5th Friday, 23:59 UTC+8 (15:59 UTC).
