The Grand Finals 2015

The Wargaming.net League is the beating heart of World of Tanks eSports. After months of competitive gaming, the best teams are nearing the finish of their seasons in each of the regions and thus, it’s high time to prepare to rock with The Grand Finals.

We are proud to inform you that The Grand Finals will be held in Warsaw, Poland. Yes, that’s the beautiful city which shares our passion in delivering an unforgettable eSports experience. There are many ways to describe how the show went down and why we chose to come back to Warsaw, but best would be to let the words of the media speak for themselves:

“It was bloody massive.”
PC GAMER

Warsaw, Poland worked out to be an ideal host for the League Grand Finals.”
- Destructoid

“[…] the production was impressively theatrical.”
- mmorpg


This year The Grand Finals will once again take place in April, starting early Saturday 25 and finishing late afternoon Sunday 26. The event will be held in the EXPO XXI centre.

The twelve best teams from around the world will meet on those days to fight for honour and glory. NA’VI, the 2014 World Champions, representing the CIS server in 2014, are put in the spotlight once more to see if they can claim the title twice in a row. 

Team selection process:

  • Two teams representing Asia and Pacific (APAC, the KR and Asia servers)
  • Two teams representing the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS server)
  • Two teams representing Europe (EU server)
  • Two teams representing North America (NA server)
  • Two teams representing China (CN server)
  • Two teams selected as Wild Cards (WC) – teams selected for their outstanding performance and/or other qualities.

 

THE HIGHLIGHTS



 

THE VENUE

The EXPO XXI centre is a big, modern hall equipped with everything an eSports event needs: good transportation to the centre, massive amount of space and top of the line internet connection. All this will make the eSports experience something you won’t forget, regardless if you came to watch the event live or follow it on the stream.

The hall is a dream come true for anyone who hopes for a great eSports show!

THE ESPORTS TOURNAMENT FORMAT

The last step of evolution in the competitive scene was changing the amount of points teams have to spend on vehicles, as well as the game mode. Now the Wargaming.net League is played in the 7 vs. 7 format, with each team having 54 tier points available to spend on vehicles up to Tier VIII.

The games are played in the attack/defence mode where one team is protecting two base capture zones, while the other is attempting to outmanoeuvre the defenders to capture them, or destroy all their vehicles.

The Grand Finals will be streamed live in English and Russian. At the moment these are the only two confirmed official streaming languages. However, we will be doing our best to support additional language streams during the event.
