The Future of World of Tanks eSports

Source: ASIA Portal

Many of you have surely been waiting with bated breath for the announcement of the next Season of the Wargaming.net League APAC. As the eSports industry as a whole continues to evolve and grow, so must we, and it is with the aim of achieving player happiness and delivering our players the most rewarding and dynamic competitive environment possible, that we would like to announce our next major revamp for the WGL and the World of Tanks competitive scene.

A New Format for 2018

Competitive gaming continues to be a major strategic priority for Wargaming, and we will continue to build and enrich the World of Tanks eSports community by creating more localized content and casual tournaments for all levels of skill and commitment.

As for our formal competitive sector, the Wargaming.net League, we are working on updating our official tournament format to make it ever more spectacular, entertaining, and appealing to our audience. This will be done with the invaluable feedback and expertise of those who know our game best – our pro players – as guideposts.

 

Together with our players, we’ll be conducting a series of tests on various different formats to find the one that will prove most compelling and most enjoyable for both competitor and spectator alike. Will we end up with a vastly different metagame when our study concludes? A whole new tournament? Only time will tell!

The sky’s the limit on this one, so look out for more information on the beta version of the new format to be released early next year!

Wargaming.net League APAC: The Transitional Season

But what shall be the fate of the WGL?

While our format research is underway, an extended Season of the Wargaming.net League APAC will be taking place concurrently to keep all our players and fans engaged. Between September and December, our existing Gold Series teams will be battling to earn the top position in APAC, as well as a chance to face off against the other regions’ best challengers in Moscow this December.

There will also be opportunities for rising new stars – that’s you, our dear players – to participate and earn themselves a spot among Asia’s elite. If you can take the heat, that is!

Watch out for more details on this very soon!

We hope this announcement has given you plenty to chew on as we gear up for the next evolution of World of Tanks eSports. Till next time, thank you all for your passionate support, and as always, see you on the battlefield!

    Where have I heard this line before….hmm I wonder. I also wonder how the current player happiness working, out outside of CW and I cannot help but notice seeing an increase of unhappiness over the past patches stretching back 1.5 years.
    So how is WG Happiness Department doing these days? Or should we rename it to Triple T Deparment: Trolling Tears & salT Department, brought to you since 2015!

  4. “Competitive gaming continues to be a major strategic priority for Wargaming, and we will continue to build and enrich the World of Tanks eSports community.”

    Seriously? Why does WG keep repeating those lines while it has become damn obvious to the whole eSports community that WG doesnt give a shit? Why bother to pretend that they care so much while constantly going in the exact opposite direction and completely destroying the little eSports that was in WoT.

    Ranked Teambattles was great and recieved lots of great feedback and of course shut down without any comment; CW wrecked; WGL Bronze/Silver Series dismantled and just recently WG completely abandoned ESL.

    GG WP, but you deeply care and “CONTINUE to build and enrich the World of Tanks eSports community,” The only MAJOR PRIORITY of WG is to pretend to care and fuck over the eSports community more and more.

  5. Man, I wonder when WG will realize WoT is not suited for E-sports. It is a fucking RNG driven, completely imbalanced with horrible maps madness. And now the team will have to struggle to find even moer players willing to dump their time into this crap, split the prizes even further.
    WoT will never be a true E-sports game and they should dump that idea.

    1. Well said bro.
      Like,25% Rng,and this is still considered a skill-based e-sports game?………
      Might as well put throeing dices in e-sports too.
      Oh,and btw,the casuall player enjoys soooo much seeing boosting shit and other YOLO tactics implied in CW-like tournaments,it really reflects how this game is beeing played by the masses in randoms,and everybody relates with this gameplay,right??……

  6. Honestly who cares about fucking e-sports?
    It’s got nothing to do with the way the game is played in randoms and cw. Additionally it’s boring as fuck to watch, not to forget the retarded commenters.

    It should be done FA cup style, have an e-sport battle mode available to all players for a ‘season’. Limit it to one tier. Play it ranked battle style, until at the end of the regular season the top 14 random players by rank are known on each server. Then play best of seven, 7 v 7 (teams selected randomly) of these random dudes.

    Fly the best team(s) from each server to the finals.
