Wargaming’s big esports show, the World of Tanks Grand Finals 2016, was announced earlier this week. The event will take place April 8-9 in Warsaw, Poland, and showcase 12 of the best tanking teams from around the world, who will wage war over a $300,000 prize pool.
Battles will be 7v7 affairs, with a 10-minute time limit, up from last years’s seven-minute mark. The game mode will be Attack/Defense, where one team defends two bases while the other team attempts to capture them or destroy all their vehicles. Tier X tanks will also be in the mix for the first time, offering even more heavy-hitting action.
Two teams each will represent the Asia/Pacific region, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Europe, and North America; one team will hail from China, and there will be three wild cards, “selected for their outstanding performance and/or other criteria.”
The Grand Finals will, of course, be streamed, and you can catch highlights of last year’s event in the above video. Full details can be found on the World of Tanks site.
