Tank Commanders!

Wargaming is proud to inform you that World of Tanks will be featured at the World Cyber Games Grand Finals, taking place at Kunshan International Exposition & Convention Center in Kunshan, China, from 29 November to 02 December.

World of Tanks debut in World Cyber Games became possible because of numerous and successful tournaments and championships all over the world, which made tank battles truly global.

“Several months ago, we introduced a special blitz version of tank battles with only seven players per team, and it has proven to be a great fit for tournament formats,” said World of Tanks eSport Lead Alexey Kuznetsov. “We are all excited about being included in the most popular eSport event of the year, and I’m sure World of Tanks will make a great debut there.”

WCG is very similar to the Olympic Games, but for eSports, which is constantly sponsored by Samsung Company. South Korea has taken the lead of World Cyber Games in the year 2000 with the first championship which took place in Seoul. It was supported by world major IT companies and the South Korea government. The success of this championship has given life to annual WCGs. The common prize pull of World Cyber Games is $500,000 and about 700 players from 70 countries take part in the championships annually.

We will share more details with you later. Please stay tuned to the news!
