NSFs Get a $15,000 World of Tanks Championship for License2Play

Teaming up with the Ministry of Defence and Singapore Press Holdings, Wargaming will be holding a World of Tanks competition specifically for full-time national servicemen (NSF) “in recognition and honor of Singapore’s NSFs for all they’ve done for their nation.”  If you fit the bill then keep on reading, as we’re looking at a prize pool that’s running in the thousands.

Teams will be tossing shells at each other in a Best of 5, single-elimination bracket. In other words, the first team to score three wins in a match will advance, while the losing team is removed from the tournament. Each team will be made up of seven players, commandeering tanks that do not exceed Tier 5. If you’re short on players, simply convince a couple of friends to sign-up with the invite code “NSFSG” and they’ll receive a handy starter package of 1,000 Gold, 7 Days of Premium and 30,000 Credits – just don’t let them squander it away right from the start.

Don’t forget that 11B card either, as each member will have to upload a front and back copy when registering for the tournament. Wargaming will continue to receive applications until Tuesday, 5 November. Be sure to read up on the rules and regulations too.

Here’s the list of off dates you’ll need to squeeze out of your officers:

  • 9–10 November, Optional Training Session
  • 13–14 November, Initial Qualifiers using online tournament system
  • 20–21 November, Top 16 at Wargaming Command Centre
  • 7 December, Top 8 at License2Play 2013
  • 8 December, Best of 7 Grand Finals at License2Play 2013

As the headline says, the prize pool will come in at a cool SG$15,000 but that’s just for the cash. Razer will also be sponsoring the tournament with over $10,000 worth of snake-emblazoned products. Sounds like a mighty fine gift for the holiday season.

Now I’m just trying to picture how ridiculous the tournament would be if our Leopard 2A4s were running around in it.
