Wargaming 15th Anniversary Tournament - Join Us in Minsk!


Some of you may have noticed the big number “15” wrapped around the Wargaming logo on all our portals. That number isn’t there without a reason. It’s because has been around for fifteen years! These fifteen years went by in the blink of an eye and resulted in the creation of one of the most successful free-to-play games in history – World of Tanks.

When Wargaming is celebrating, we celebrate big. Anyone who was at last years Wargaming party at Gamescom can confirm that. We also know that no party is worthwhile without our fans. We’d love for you to join us. We want it so bad, that we organized this tournament. Are you interested? Read on!
