Wargaming.net announces world championship with slick new video
Not to be outdone by Blizzard with their fancy-shmancy Battle.net World Championship, Wargamimg.net today announced their World of Tanks Championship to be held at the World Cyber Games 2012 Grand Finals this week in Kunshan, China. It's such a big deal, they even sprung for a slick new teaser trailer. While we can't embed the video, you can check it out on YouTube right here.
This marks World of Tanks debut as an eSport, and Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi had this to say about that:
"We are focused on expanding World of Tanks as a world-wide eSport discipline. Events like the World Cyber Games spur growth in it as a cyber sport by encouraging pro gamers to pump more hours into improvement and helping us find what needs to be changed to enhance the gaming experience."
An important note for those of us not able to attend the event live in China, all stage matches of the WCG 2012 Grand Finals will be broadcast live on Twitch TV as well as Korean Ongamenet, Daum TV pot and Chinese NeoTV.
