More often than not, we put the Gold Series Teams under the spotlight. After all, they represent the highest competitive level in World of Tanks. Today however, in the middle of the Season, we focus on the brutal, ferocious and ruthless Silver Series!
To say that the competition is fierce in Silver would be an understatement. The Series hosts 30 high level teams, all of them disciplined and dedicated. At the end of the season, the best team is directly promoted to the Gold Series. The other teams in the top 5 also have a chance to be promoted, but they must battle their way up against the Gold teams in the relegation bracket... Not an easy task! What's more, every single week, the 6 worst performing teams are relegated to Bronze! As a result, every match counts, for better or worse. Many of these teams have been in and out of Silver for several seasons and, as a result, know each others strengths and weaknesses well enough to counter-play. In terms of pure skills, the teams at the very top could rival the middle of the Gold Series table. In fact, many Silver players are what you could call “semi-professionals”.
The full rankings are always available on the ESL website. You can check out the profile of each team, the matches they played and the number of points they have. The rules in the Silver Series are very specific. Every week, the last 6 teams are unfortunately sent back to bronze, while the best 6 bronze teams are promoted to Silver. The Series is therefore dynamic, some teams surviving in the Series longer than others, and the opponents tend to vary a lot from match to match.
The full table is currently as follows:
|Rank||Teams||Matches in Silver||Wins||Losses||Points|
|8||Retarded Grandma Torture||7||5||2||85|
|9||Ich. Du und ein Koala||5||4||1||80|
|12||Easy Peasy Team||7||4||3||60|
|13||Put that cookie down!!!||10||5||5||59|
|18||Play 4 fun!?||3||2||1||45|
|19||The Amazing Avocado||1||1||0||45|
|20||Power of Conception||1||1||0||45|
|25||Vicious and Delicious||0||0||0||25|
In the end, how you look at the Silver Series depends on where your own team stands. If you are you a Gold Series player, you’re probably praying you never fall back to Silver. If you are a Bronze Series player, you know in your heart that your team could be up there... and of course if you are a Silver Series player...
Stay tuned for more Silver entertainment, as we will soon introduce you to The Wild Bunch, an ambitious and ferocious Silver Series team fighting to reach the top. We will interview their leader, and he will show us some of their work. Stay tuned!
