As you can see, a total of 14 teams will participate in the WGL Grand Finals. From this list, 12 of the teams were selected based on their performance in the regional Wargaming.net League stages and two were selected as wild cards.
The wildcards have been selected by the eSports team following some excellent performances in their region. For the first Grand Finals, the wild card teams are:
We hope they make the most of their chances and give us a great show!
Teams are initially divided into two groups. The first group consists of the teams that scored the most points in their regional games. These six teams will automatically proceed to the second stage of the tournament.
The second group consists of the other six teams that did not score as many points in the regional qualifiers and the two wild card teams. That gives a total of eight teams in the second group. These eight teams will be playing against each other to find out who is the best! Two of the teams will progress to the second stage and enter the normal tournament bracket.
Below we’ve put an example tournament to show you how the bracket works. We’ll publish the full WGL Grand Finals bracket at a later date. Please keep in mind that the group stage bracket will look slightly different from this example, but will work in a similar fashion.
