WG Hosts VR Tournament in Russia

Wargaming will co-host the first Russian VR tournament. The total prize pool is 300000 rubles (5000 $). The qualifying stages start in a number of Russian cities, next week.

The publisher and developer Wargaming.net and VRTech will jointly hold the first major Russian tournament in virtual reality. Participants will battle it out in the VR first person shooter called RevolVR, made in the style of the Wild West. “The shootout involves four players, but there can only be one winner,” reads the project description. The qualifying stage of the tournament will be held on November 23, simultaneously in seven Russian cities: Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Yekaterinodar, Rostov-na-Donu, Nizhny Novgorod and Yaroslavl. There, on the entertainment site CinemaVR, the participants will compete in order to enter the finals, which will be held at WG Fest (Moscow), and the total prize fund will be 300000 rubles.

According to the organizers, this is not the final sum: the participants of the tournaments pay a monetary contribution. Starting from 50 rubles, the fee will go to the prize fund. The system reminds us of the main competitions in Dota 2 and LoL, in a strongly simplified form, of course.

REVOLVR (2017) is a multiplayer game for virtual reality developed by CINEMAVR. Players have the role of cowboys of the Wild West and are competing with each other in the skill of shooting guns. Players shoot at each other with revlolvers. The better shooter which also evades the enemy rounds is the winner. The playing session lasts for 5 rounds. Each round starts in atmospheric locations: on the streets of the Wild West, in the desert, or in the saloon.
