Gaijin Entertainment have announced the first international championship for their military shooter, War Thunder. Titled Gladiators.WT 4×4, the competition will run from now until March 2014 and feature a prize pot of $28,000 along with a whole bunch of high-end laptops, video cards and tablets, thanks to hardware sponsor MSI.
To become the champion in Gladiators.WT 4×4, 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.
