The Wargaming Universe Tournament is the first big cross-game eSports event we’ve organized. The first stage will be business as usual but the second stage will be something really special!
The first step is signing up for Stage One, the World of Tanks tournament, using the tournament sign-up system. The tournament will look as it usually does, until the very end. Take a look at the below infographic to have a general overview of what will be happening, but keep in mind it only refers to the activities in Stage One.
The top 128 teams from Stage One, the World of Tanks tournament stage, will automatically qualify for Stage Two, which will take place in World of Warplanes. If your team manages to finish in the top four in both tournaments, your gold winnings will be doubled! On top of that, if your team finishes in the top two in both tournaments, all team members will receive a Type 59 Tier VIII Chinese medium tank and a Curtiss P-36C Hawk fighter plane!
The prizes for Stage Two are really attractive on their own as well:
8,000 per player + Curtiss Model 81A-1
6,000 per player + Curtiss Model 81A-1
|3rd – 4th||
4,500 per player + Curtiss Model 81A-1
|5th – 8th||2,500 per player|
|9th – 16th||1,500 per player|
|17th – 32nd||750 per player|
The schedule for Stage Two will be announced on the forums.
The teams in World of Warplanes will obviously have the same maximum size, but the engagement will be limited to 5 vs. 5, meaning there will be only five standing members and four substitutes. The planes will be limited to Tier V only, so there will be 25 tier points to spend.
