The Champions Rumble: Meet the Teams!

In other languages: th zh-tw ja

As we hurtle toward the day of impact – 17 December – none of our 4 illustrious contenders for the Champions Rumble title are showing any signs of slowing down. A mighty battle looms ahead, so let’s take a closer look at the supergiants who will be heading to Moscow this weekend!

And wouldn’t you, the super fans, love to win some great prizes worthy of Champions too? Check out the Contests tab below to find out how you can win a sweet new ride for the holidays!

Natus Vincere - Multiple-time regional titleholders, twice world champions, and most titled team in the history of World of Tanks. If their last season proved that they don't always finish first (they finished 3rd in the recent regular season), they certainly also showed during their Season Finals that when it is time to step up their game to win an event, they always deliver.

How they qualified for the Champions Rumble:

As winners of The Grand Finals 2016, Na'Vi received a direct slot for themselves and for their region's season champions, Hellraisers.


TORNADO ENERGY Team (formerly known as Hellraisers) - World champions in 2015, unlucky finalist in 2016 in the closest series of all time against their rivals from Na'Vi, big fan favourites in CIS. The team is known for their quick decision-making in battle, and has been claiming the top spots for several seasons now.

How they qualified for the Champions Rumble:

Since Na'Vi won The Grand Finals 2016, CIS is the current Champion region, and thus sends two representatives directly to the Champions Rumble. As finalists of both the Grand Finals and the Season 1 Finals (both won by Na'Vi), TORNADO ENERGY Team received the second slot.  


DING - The only team who has gone undefeated this season. A dominant force on the European server, the team won the WGLEU finals almost without breaking a sweat, and went on to win the Challenger Rumble in New York.

How they qualified for the Champions Rumble:

Earned their seat by defeating 5 other top teams from around the world in a heated battle at the recent Challenger Rumble.


Kazna Kru  - Consistently one of the top teams in Europe, Kazna has been around since forever. They boast a European championship and several honourable places in The Grand Finals. Always ready to put up a good show, Kazna will defend their chance fiercely in Moscow.

How they qualified for the Champions Rumble:

As the finalists of the Challenger Rumble in New York, Kazna received the second slot for the Champions Rumble. As a result, the regional representation in Moscow will be even: two teams from CIS, and two from Europe.
