Coming Soon: WGL APAC-ASIA Season 1 2015-2016

About the Tournament

The WGL APAC-ASIA tournament is the glorious arena in which the Asia server’s elite gather each year to thrill audiences across the region with their abilities. It is divided into 3 distinct series, each of which poses a unique challenge to players at differing levels of skill and commitment, so there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a casual tanks enthusiast or a passionate pro gamer. Read on to find out more about the tournament!


The Bronze Series

The Bronze Series is where it all begins, the birthplace of many a WoT eSports star. The top 2 teams from this Series will automatically be seeded into the next Silver Series, while the 3rd and 4th placed Bronze Series teams will face the 5th and 6th placed Silver Series teams in a playoff match at the end of the season to earn spots in the Silver Series next season.

Rankings in the Bronze Series are determined by the relative number of weekly points teams are able to accumulate by the end of the season. Here’s how the winners of each week’s tournament will score:

Weekly Points System
1st Place 250 Points
2nd Place 150 Points
3rd Place 90 Points
4th Place 90 Points

 

This Series is open to the public for registration, so if you’re looking to get your feet wet in the tournament circuit, or just need a change of pace from random pub matches, make sure you sign up! Each week’s tournament is a standalone event, so if you’re not set on earning the points necessary to ascend to the Silver Series, you can simply drop in for just a week or two of fun.


The Silver Series

The Silver Series is trial by fire for the Gold Series hopefuls – do you have what it takes to play with the big boys? The top 2 teams from this Series will automatically be seeded into the next Gold Series, while the 3rd and 4th placed Silver Series teams will face the 5th and 6th placed Gold Series teams in a playoff match at the end of the season to earn their spots in the Gold Series next season. The 7th and 8th placed teams from this Series will unfortunately be relegated back to the Bronze Series.

The Silver Series point system is dependent upon the result of each match, and is cumulative for the duration of the entire season. It’s a round-robin tournament, so participation in this Series is a significantly longer-term commitment than in the Bronze Series. Here’s how the points are awarded:

Points System
Victory 3 Points
Victory (by tie-breaker 2 Points
Defeat (by tie-breaker) 1 Points
Defeat 0 Points

 


The Gold Series

If you’ve managed to make it this far, congratulations! The Gold Series is where the crème de la crème of the WoT eSports scene battle for top honours. Matches in this Series will be streamed live every week for your enjoyment! The top 4 teams from this Series will enter into the Top 4 Playoffs to earn 2 seats at the Season Finals, while the 5th and 6th placed Gold Series teams will face the 3rd and 4th placed Silver Series teams in a playoff match at the end of the season to keep their spots in the Gold Series next season. The 7th and 8th placed teams from this Series will unfortunately be relegated back to the Silver Series.

As with the Silver Series, the Gold Series point system is dependent upon the result of each match, and is cumulative for the duration of the entire season. It’s also a round-robin tournament requiring a long-term commitment, but the rewards here are far greater than in the Silver Series. Here’s how the points are awarded:

Points System
Victory 3 Points
Victory (by tie-breaker 2 Points
Defeat (by tie-breaker) 1 Points
Defeat 0 Points
