Just before April ended, Warsaw, Poland saw the culmination of the World of Tanks Grand Finals. If you didn’t catch any of the action, Hellraisers took the title by beating EL Gaming (China), and even ousting former champions Na’Vi on their way to the finals.

That isn’t new news though. What IS new is that Wargaming.net has released a new video showcasing the Top 10 Moments in the tournament and supplied some metrics comparing this year’s Grand Finals to last year’s. The numbers show pretty impressive growth for the lesser known eSports tournament.

Over the entire tournament, over 2.6 million viewers tuned into the various streaming outlets to watch some portion of the Grand Finals. Those viewers watched an average of 28 minutes each, which is over 400% better than last year’s 6 minute average view time. The Grand Finals also had over 15,000 live viewers on hand at the event.

Check out the video above and let me know your favorite moment from the Grand Finals in the comments below.
