e-Sports, Tournaments

Call up your clan and start practicing – we just announced the first ever GeForce eSports World of Tanks Open Tournament. Teams will be competing to win GeForce GTX 600-series graphics cards, bragging rights and a shot at a $100,000 prize pool awarded at the Grand Finals. Pre-Registration for the free tournament is now open to amateur and professional teams from around the world. Team and player registration along with the official rules will be available on March 28.

In addition, community favorites David "Nagatron" Williams and James "Relics" Starr will be shoutcasting the battles in English for VoD and in real time with live broadcasts streamed on and Twitch TV. With more than 55 million registered users worldwide, competition should be intense.

World of Tanks is a fast-paced PC shooter game that recently set a Guinness World Record for the most players online simultaneously when the Russian MMO server reached 190,541 players.

All tournament matches will be best of three game matches between seven-person teams with at least four weeks of guaranteed group play. The top players from each group will move on to the double-elimination championship brackets for each of the five regions: China, APAC (consisting of Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Australia), the Americas, Europe and Russia. Regional winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Grand Finals and compete for the GeForce Cup and the coveted GeForce Green Jackets.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops II Rivalries Champions Cup. I can only imagine how much cooler the World of Tanks GeForce GTX Cup will be.
