Hello friendo's

 

I thought it might be good to have a WGL chat happening here, so people can get informed, ask questions, chit chat, banter <3 about your fave teamu.

What is WGL?
The Wargaming.net League is the professional eSports League for World of Tanks, from the regions of NA, EU, RU (CIS) and APAC.
What is APAC?
Asia Pacific, Asia server area.

but... what IS WGL?
The WGL is a global competition where each team competes for points to qualify for the Wargaming.net League Grand Finals.

... skell plz, what is WGL!? 
WGL plays a little differen't than your normal random battle, we use a format called 7x68. This means 7 players using up to 68 points of tiers. This normally means 6x tier 10 tanks and 1x tier 8 tank, or 2x tier 9 tanks. There is a maximum tier of 10, and no lower tier restriction. 
WGL matches are played on Attack/Defend maps (which you can view in Training rooms), one side is the defender the other is the attacker, so no camping. 
We play over a 10 minute round, with the first team to 5 victories win the match.
There is a total of only 8 maps, to choose from in WGL: Himmelsdorf, Murovanka, Prokhorovka, Mines, Cliff, GhostTown, Ruinberg and Steppes

So what makes this competition interesting? 
Well it'll be different for everyone, but me personally, its the insane level of team work required. This isn't like FPS shooter eSports where 1 player can seem to solo the entire opposing side, that just doesn't happen here, you need your teammates. Watching a fantastic strategy unfold, where each player contributes their part to the battle, the timing, the shots and the positioning to breach a defense or to bait/trap the other team perfectly, is really enjoyable to watch happen.

So where can i see the WGL?
You can find WGL matches live from here http://live.wgleague.net/
Which is the twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/wgl_en
You can also get video's and recordings from all APAC matches here on their youtube channel https://www.youtube....5uAl7s3RFzCulHQ

Would you like to know more?

Everything about WGL is here http://en.wgleague.net/
The current teams, who there members are http://en.wgleague.net/teams/
The current standings http://en.wgleague.net/standings/
The schedule of who is playing, where and when http://en.wgleague.n...es/#?matchday=6

Additionally, you can actually download most of the replays from all matches fought in WGL directly from here: http://wotreplays.co...c_gold&season=3

 

Can i get involved?
Sure can, I don't have the date/times when it happens, but there is the first tier of tournaments called Bronze League, probably happens in between WGL seasons. This is the entry point into WGL. Just need to join or create your own team, signup for the Bronze League tournament. This then moves onto the Silver Mavericks tournament, where teams fight to earn entry into the final form, Gold league. Where you will be promptly crushed by EL Gaming.

So that's the introduction, anything else i should add here?

Interesting table now, besides 1st place. Hope you guys can notch up a 1 in the other L columns! 

 

Speaking of 1 person soloing, did you see that other esport game clutch a 1v5?

Nice writeup Skell. It's a pity this format (7/68) isn't used in Team Battles or another mode that is popular so people can play this style. It's much more fun than the 15v15 for sure.

Military Drill tier X uses the same format, I believe.

 

+1 for Skell too.

Yeah it's just bad timing and painful to sign up in. Need to integrate it into the client for signing up.

Checked the websites but couldn't find anything but I am sure during the live broadcast they had a link up to download your favourite skins. Either in the chat or on the wgleague site.

 

Excellent write up skell - it would be good to see more information and exposure about this part of the game in general, and I second the vote for re-introducing ranked team battles, gives everyone a chance to dip their toe in this very different but fun part of the game.

If you love TE 's camo and want them yourself now you can! Link for all EU RU APAC & NA camo: http://wgl.gg/SKINS - Guide: http://wgl.gg/SKINSguide. Files go into Res_Mods. For APAC teams download files called "[0.9.17.0.1]WGL_Common_part(06.01.17).zip" & "[0.9.17.0.1]WGL_EU(11.01.17).zip" Install the files from the player folder.

More POWER and support to TE !!!

You can do it! Climb up to #1!!!


When an enemy Arty "one shots" 2 of your teams' heavies and you're in a heavy tank, you know you're screwed.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.
