Wargaming is proud to announce a special November eSports event in honor of Veteran's Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in other countries. We've created three tournaments for the month -- tier 8, tier 6 and tier 4 -- with the top two tiers offering cash prizes to the top finishers.
In addition, the cash prize will be directly influenced by the peak concurrent user numbers on the North American cluster during the month of November and the total participants in the tournament, currently the pool is up to $41,078 to match our latest CCU record. What's more, Wargaming will also donate an amount equal to the peak concurrent user number to Veterans charity organizations, split evenly, to Homes For Our Troops, National Military Family Association, Operation Homefront, Paralyzed Veterans of America and AMVETS.
Even if you're not planning on participating in the tournament, you can help directly influence the prize pool of the tournament and the amount donated to the continued care of our veterans when they return home from duty. All you have to do is log on each night--the typical peak time for North America is 6:30PM PDT, so the more logged on the more impact on the prize pool and donation. Tell your friends and join us in setting new heights for peak concurrent numbers, eSports prize pools, and most importantly: making sure veterans are taken care of.
