Come every end of the year, the World Cyber Games dawns on us and while some may start questioning its significance in today's growing world of the eSports industry, it ultimately still signal a united world of gamers from all background and that truly is the essential spirit.
Last year saw the debut of critically-acclaimed World of Tanks in the annual Games, and this year we will again see its continued allegiance as a global official title. “Tank squads have improved on their skills since the last year, and we expect harsh competition at WCG 2013," said Global eSports Director at Wargaming Jonghyuk Baak. "Following the launch of the Wargaming.net League, World of Tanks has come a long way in professional gaming, and we’ll continue to evolve both the competitive and spectator elements of the game, providing viewers with a quality experience, introducing new eSports features, and supporting pro-teams.”
As global as the game has been, preliminary events will be held in North America, Europe and Asia. Winning teams from these online qualifying rounds will then be rewarded with an all-expense paid trip and the glory of representing their nation in the 2013 WCG Grand Finals in Kunshan, China, held all through November 28th till December 1st.
