[SG] Sign up for World of Tanks Training Camp 2014! [UPDATED]

Singaporean Tank Commanders!

How many times have you stared at your personal stats and wished it were much higher? Maybe you've thought about asking for tips, but there's only so much you can learn from others in forum threads. It's one thing to say 'don't aim at the IS-3 here', but we all know it's easier said than done.

Your friends aren't much help either. Most are still getting the hang of the game - some of them are even learning from you! The better ones are pretty much at your skill level too, and can't offer much besides joining you in platoons and doing their best.

Seems like there's no other choice but to keep watching those tutorial vids on Youtube. Or is there?

Singapore Training Camp 2014 Pilot Program

We're pioneering a new training camp concept which is designed to give you what you truly need: an expert that will teach you the ins and outs of World of Tanks. Comprising of three sessions (3rd May, 17th May and 31st May), the training camp will be held at the Command Centre by Wargaming, where they'll provide you with the exact training and advice that will increase your knowledge of the game and help you break out of your skill barrier several times over.

At the end of the last session, each participant will be awarded with free gold, as well as a certificate of completion for having attended the Training Camp.

Please note that once registered, players will be signing up for ALL three sessions. You will only receive your free gold and certificate after attending all sessions and modules, so remember to turn up on time!

Your Trainers

Trust us when we say we're particular about the choice of tutor for our Training Camp - we're not exactly going to hire the first guy we see at a random void deck. In fact, the people we chose are tournament veterans that know the drill and have fought amongst the best teams in Asia, if not the world.

Team Insidious Gaming (ISG) will be the ones teaching you what, when, where, how and why your tanks should be played at any combat situation. As local eSports superstars with close ties to the community, they have the experience needed to teach you the best strategies and the enthusiasm to do so.

You may already be familiar with their performance, but as a recap, their accolades include:

  • WCG Singapore Qualifiers Champion 2013
  • Singapore National Finals 1st Place & Runner Up (Team 2)
  • TanksAsia Masters Season 1 Runner-up
  • TanksAsia Masters Season 2 Runner-up

Team members Deathskyz, Nisa, SickTank, AVTR, Cepheus, Seahchye, Monoceros, Cetus and Elite will be your tutors for the entire three sessions, the first of which will be held on 3rd May 2014.
