Both Wargaming.net and ESL are dedicated to creating the best possible environment for teams to grow and progress in – we want to see more teams follow in the footsteps of recently crowned WGL Season 4 champion Schoolbus.
With the roots of competitive World of Tanks lying in Go4WoT for many and the changes we made a couple of months ago not fully reflecting that, we have taken your feedback into consideration and made some more adjustments to both the prize money and team eligibility restrictions, among others, which will all be put into action from the 14th of September.
To help give everyone a taste of what it’s like at the top, we are increasing the available prize money from €150 to €750 – that’s an increase of 500%!
Weekly Go4WoT prizes
Those who take part in our Sunday Go4WoT cups have the chance to win:
- 1st place: €250 and 8,000 Gold per team
- 2nd place: €125 and 7,000 Gold per team
- 3rd place: €100 and 7,000 Gold per team
- 4th place: €75 and 7,000 Gold per team
- 5th-8th place: €50 and 6,000 Gold per team
- 9-16th place: 5,000 Gold per team
- 17th-32nd place: 2,000 Gold per team
- 33rd-64th place: 1,000 Gold per team
Monthly Go4WoT finals prizes
As well as the weekly prize pool getting a boost, every month the top eight Go4WoT teams will have the opportunity to get their hands on an even more substantial €1,000 between them. This will be split as follows:
- 1st place: €500
- 2nd place: €350
- 3rd place: €150
Following your feedback on the restrictions we previously implemented for Go4WoT, we have concluded that these didn’t have the desired effect and as such have decided to lift them, meaning that Gold and Silver teams can once again participate in Go4WoT.
Additionally, to reduce confusion we have also made it so that you can no longer qualify for Silver Series through Go4WoT Bronze – you have to play through Bronze Series first.
