Cruiserweight Anniversary Tournament

The World of Tanks European server is celebrating it’s 2nd birthday. This would not be possible without you, our players, who supported us by picking up our games and getting your friends to play. That is why we’ve decided we shouldn’t be celebrating this date alone. It’s time for you to join the party!

We would like to invite you  to take part in a series of three tournaments and try your chances at winning powerful beasts on tracks! The main prizes in these tournaments will include Type 62s, KV-5s  and Type 59s! These exclusive vehicles cannot be obtained in game!

In the second tournament named “Cruiserweight”, you will be able to enjoy the most popular mid-tier machines of destruction. The bar is rising, it’s no longer child’s play with some pitiful tier IIIs and IVs!

The Cruiserweight Anniversary Tournament sign ups start on the 19th of April at 12:00 CEST (GMT +2) and will last till the 26th of April, 18:00 CEST (GMT +2).

The games of the tournament will take place starting from the 27th of April from 18:00 CEST (GMT +2) and will continue on the 30th of April and 3rd of May. The finals will be held on the 4th of May.

As well as receiving the prizes of a KV-5 soviet heavy tank and gold, the winning team will also win a medal! Each of the anniversary tournaments will have its own medal. The Cruiserweight Anniversary Tournament winners will be rewarded with a silver medal. The gold medal will be awarded to the winner of the Heavyweight tournament while the bronze medal is awarded to the winners of the Featherweight tournament.

Previously when our tournament stars were awarded medals, they were only forum signatures or medals visible on the ESL profiles. As the anniversary tournament is a really special occasion we’ve decided to make your bling shine even more! The medals you will win in the anniversary tournaments will be visible on your World of Tanks profiles! Check them out!

Players are not allowed to play for a new team within 10 days of their departure from their old team, and may not take part in any games and tournaments of his new team during this period.

  • staff or affiliates are not prohibited from playing unless they are part of the tournament administration, these people will be stated. (Only a maximum of 2 employees and/or affiliates per active team are allowed).
  • Before the battle:
    • Teams have 10 minutes before the allocated start time to join the lobby. If a team is not ready in this time and no one from the reserve can take the place in the primary (main) team, this team forfeits the game.

    • If a match ends in a draw, we will use the 6 tier points rule. "In the case of a draw, the total tier points of surviving tanks will be added up for each team. A team with 8 tier points advantage over their opponent will be the winner" (This must be checked with a screen shot posted on this specific forum within 15 min of the game’s end) - if there is no clear winner then both teams are disqualified.
