Raseiniai Challenge


Equip your team with your best KV-2 tanker to annihilate the competition this month for the 20,000 grand prize!

June’s challenge uses the Battle of Raseiniai as a backdrop, where a lone KV-2 delayed the entire German 6th Panzer-Division's opening fire -- knocking out guns, crew and preventing German forces from delivering supplies and wounded. After eventually incapacitating the KV-2 with AA guns, the Germans found six dead crewmen inside the tank. Struck by their bravery, they did not abandon their bodies, but buried them instead.

Last time... Five players under the guise of "Pubbeh Protehtoes w CheezWheez" were responsible for winning consecutive challenges in April and May, and have become known for dominating the winners bracket in our new, double elimination format. Chances are a few of you wouldn't mind ending that streak a little early -- well, now's the time to register your team! Be sure to take advantage of a special team provision, which allows one KV-2 per team regardless of the Challenge's tier V limit.
