The Wargaming.net League is the beating heart of World of Tanks eSports. After months of competitive gaming, the best teams finish the seasons in their respective regions, and now it's time to rock at The Grand Finals.

We're happy to inform you that once again the Grand Finals will be held in Warsaw, Poland. It's a beautiful city that shares our passion in delivering an unforgettable eSports experience. There are many ways to say why we chose to come back to Warsaw, but we'll let the press say it for us:

"It was bloody massive."
-PC Gamer

"Warsaw, Poland worked out to be an ideal host for the League Grand Finals."
-Destructoid

". . . the production was impressively theatrical."
-MMORPG


And again, the Grand Finals will take place in April, starting early Saturday, the 25th and finishing late afternoon on Sunday. The event will be held in the EXPO XXI center.

The 12 best teams from around the world will meet on those days to fight for honor and glory. NA'VI, the 2014 World Champions representing the CIS server, will be in the spotlight once more to see if they can claim the title a second time!

The team selection process:

  • Two teams representing Asia-Pacific (APAC, the KR and Asia servers)
  • Two teams representing the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS server)
  • Two teams representing Europe (EU server)
  • Two teams representing North America (NA server)
  • Two teams representing China (CN server)
  • Two teams selected as Wild Cards (WC) -- teams selected for their outstanding performance and/or other qualities.

 

HIGHLIGHTS



 

THE VENUE

The EXPO XXI center is a modern hall equipped with everything an eSports event needs: good transportation to the location, a massive amount of interior space, and a top-of-the-line internet connection. All this makes the eSports experience something you won't forget, regardless if you're there in person or watching the livestream.

THE ESPORTS TOURNAMENT FORMAT

The last step of evolution in the competitive scene was changing the amount of points teams can spend on vehicles, as well as the game mode. Now the League plays in a 7 vs. 7 format, with each team having 54 tier points available to spend on vehicles up to tier VIII.

Games are played in the attack / defense mode, where one team is protecting two bases, while the other is attempting to outmaneuver the defenders to capture them, or destroy all their vehicles.

 

 

 

THE STREAM

The Grand Finals will be streamed live in English and Russian. At the moment, these are the only two confirmed official streaming languages. However, we will be doing our best to support additional language streams during the event.
