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.

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?
