Gaijin Entertainment kicks off the first official international championship for the free-to-play combat game War Thunder. With more than $28,000 USD in prize fund at stake, the e-sports tournament "Gladiator.Wt 4x4" will run until the end of March 2014. In addition to in-game prizes, winners will get powerful gaming laptops, video cards and tablets. The official hardware partner of the tournament is MSI.
To become the champion in Gladiators.WT 4x4, the 310 teams, comprised of more than 1,800 pilots representing more than 30 countries, will battle for aerial supremacy over the course of several weeks.
The qualifying rounds will narrow the participating teams from 310 to 32, at which point a playoff will commence to determine the true champion. The championship is split into two divisions dedicated to Realistic and Simulation battles, and teamwork is crucial for winning the matches. This is why every member of champion team in both divisions (12 players in total) will get a powerful gaming laptop from MSI, along with some in-game prizes. The teams that will come second and third in each division will also get valuable prizes.
