The World of Tanks European championship consists of 4 stages:
The national qualifiers serve to identify a country’s champion team and its representatives for the rest of the championship. There will be one national qualifier for each of the following countries:
Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, FYR Macedonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
The players must be citizens of the country they represent. By entering the competition, the players consent to collection and further processing of their name, surname and their country of nationality by Wargaming, as may be needed for the purpose of verifying the qualifiers in which they are supposed to play.
At the end of the national qualifiers, IP checks will be conducted to ensure that this rule is respected. In case the IP does not match the selected qualifier, the players will be asked (via forum, in-game messaging, or via their registered email) to provide proof of citizenship, and will have 24 hours to provide this. Failing to provide proof of citizenship may result in disqualification.
National qualifiers structure:
Note: the team that wins the national qualifiers of Germany automatically advances to Gamescom to play as the host nation.
IMPORTANT – Due to Livestreaming requirements, Finland, France and Poland will play their finals on 15th July. The United Kingdom, Czech Republic and Germany will play their finals on 16th July. The teams participating will be contacted in order to arrange the games and livestreaming.
The exact rewards, including the physical goodies and prizes, can be found on the tournament announcement page. For reference in the rules, the in-game rewards are as follows:
National Qualifiers rewards (Round Robin groups of 4 + playoffs):
European phase Online Finals rewards (16 teams, single elimination tournament):
Offline Finals at Gamescom:
All team captains must stay up to date on the forum. The tournament administration recommends every captain follow the “rules and information” thread of the European Championship tournament, in case of critical changes.
The team captain is responsible for their team: only a team captain can make requests on behalf of their team on the forum.
Captains and players are advised to use the in-game reporting system to report foul language, rather than the official rules enforcement thread.
Players and teams:
Even though we highly recommend that you read the rules fully, we'll include this part for everyone who likes to have a brief overview of everything.
This tournament is the only World of Tanks tournament where you can represent your country and win a trip to Gamescom, along with some amazing hardware and gold.
There will be a qualifier for each country. Each country's winning team will then play in the group stage + playoffs in order to win one of three places in the Finals in Germany. As host nation, Germans will have one team automatically qualify.
We're planning on streaming a lot of games, so whether or not you're planning to sign up, you can follow the WoT European Championship.
We'll be active on the forum, so find the European Championship thread and feel free to ask us any questions you may have.
