With new media becoming an inevitable part of the tech-savvy in their everyday lives and e-sports gaining traction as a strong entertainment market, Wargaming has undertaken an initiative to educate the public on the importance of Cyber Wellness and bring about awareness to the online gaming scene.
As part of our efforts to promote Cyber Wellness and e-sports amongst the local community, it has been decided that the next stage in our organizational development is to work with an educational institute in Singapore to move towards this new directive. Therefore, it is with great pleasure to announce that Wargaming has established a partnership with Singapore's Cybersports and Online Gaming Association (SCOGA) to organize the first of a kind, ITE tournament. For this tournament, we’re allowing the student committee to organise and execute the tournament under our supervision. Unlike previous tournaments, it will be based on a 7v7 format which will place more emphasis on strategy and teamwork as compared to the standard 5v5 format usually adopted.
The preliminaries were held at ITE College Central (Bishan Campus) on 15th November to determine the teams that will get to advance to the next stage. The finals will be held at Licence2Play 2012 at Marina Bay Sands on 8th December so mark it on your calendar now and make a date with us. The final chapter in the epic battle of the ITEs - Just who will be the ones to bring fame and glory to the school? Come witness the crowning of the champion in this unprecedented World of Tanks ITE Tournament!
