In a little over a week, from April 8—9, Torwar Hall in Warsaw will throw open its doors and welcome 12 of the biggest names in World of Tanks eSports. Teams from across the globe will meet on the digital battlefield for two days of tank mayhem for the title of champion. With entry absolutely free, Grand Finals 2016 promises to be an event that’s not to be missed.
Crossing the Atlantic to represent North America are former Silver League champs eClipse, and veteran team SIMP, who recently switched up their lineup. From EU are two giants of the League: Wombats on Tanks and Tornado.RoX, who locked horns at last year’s Grand Finals. The CIS are sending reigning champs Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) and WGL Gold Series Season 2 runners-up Not So Serious Team. Last Grand Finals’ silver medalists EL Gaming and relative newcomers GoldBass are representing Asia.
It wouldn’t be a true Grand Finals without a few wildcards dealt to shake things up: Yato from China, Kazna Kru from Europe, 2015 World Champions Hellraisers, and Red Canids—the first team to ever take part from Brazil.
Along with the action inside the arena, visitors and tank enthusiasts alike can check out two real steel beasts outside Torwar Hall. A T-34-85 and an M4A1 Sherman will be guarding the exterior of the hall, offering fans a great photo opportunity.
As well as real tanks, the virtual, and equally awesome Tier 8 premium light tank M 41 90 GF, specifically designed to commemorate this year’s event, will be available from April 1 in NA and Asia, and April 3 in Europe. Its excellent view range and rapid speed make it a superior scout. Not to mention, its exclusive and striking black camouflage will definitely turn heads on the battlefield.
With very few places left, fans can still register for the event, which will snag them a special gift: the Premium British Tier 5 heavy tank Excelsior. There’s also one last chance to take the Grand Finals experience up a gear with Premium tickets. These allow entrance to the venue one hour before everyone else, a fast queuing lane, a dedicated premium seat in front of the action, and a collection of tanks: the Premium British Tier 5 heavy Excelsior, the Tier 8 Premium heavy IS-3A, the unique Grand Finals M 41 90 GF, and more.
If you are unable to make it to Poland, there’s no need to worry. All the Grand Finals main stage and second stage action will be streaming live on YouTube, Twitch, and Hitbox. So whatever your broadcasting preference, the Wargaming.net League has you covered.
You can find all the broadcasts in English, Polish and Russian, available at one place: thegrandfinals.com
