The unprecedented eSports gala in World of Tanks Blitz, the regional Blitz Cups, is drawing to a close, with the Blitz North America Cup being the “cherry on top”! Taking place on November 27 and 28 at 19:00 PT / 22:00 ET, the Blitz North America Cup will be the last in a series of four regional championships where the best teams, selected through qualifying tournaments, clash in fierce Tier X vehicles for their share of the $200k.

They are:

  • [RGN] REIGN
  • [_V_] SPEED
  • [GMA] One
  • [ISHTR] Genesis

The prize pool for each regional championship will be distributed as follows:

  • 1st place: $25,000 as well as a unique emblem
  • 2nd place: $15,000 as well as a unique emblem
  • 3rd place: $7,000 as well as a unique emblem
  • 4th place: $4,000

“This year the Blitz Cup will be held online for the first time in its history, which has been a big challenge for us,” says Daria Klimchuk, eSports Team Lead, World of Tanks Blitz. “It might have a different format this year, but we’re making it one to remember, especially given the large number of participating teams and the $200k prize pool, which is double that of the Twister Cup.”

Among other changes, for the first time ever, Nintendo Switch players will be able to take part alongside the mobiles and tablets.

Viewers will be rewarded, too. During the championships, there will be only one special mission that can be completed simply by watching 1 and a half hours of a specific stream. For enjoying Friday’s stream for that amount of time, tankers will get 5 keys to special tournament containers, while watching the Saturday stream will net them a whole plethora of rewards, including an additional 7 keys to the special tournament containers, rare Boosters, x3 XP and camouflage certificates, and a special avatar.

The three other regional Blitz Cups have already crowned their champions. They are [HLV] HLV (Asia), [MERCY] Crocodiles (CIS) and [EG-] Hey lol (Europe).

Get ready to root for your favorites and don’t miss your chance to get rewarded!
