Congratulations to BigClan for winning the World of Tanks final today!
Hosted by A_Spec and Geosnipe, The final was an intense best out of 7 rounds between BigClan and Tommy Tankers.
The first round took place in Lakeville with BigClan firing the first shots and pushing dominance from early on in the game. With the first round lasting barely minutes, BigClan managed to force the Tommy Tankers into an early defeat.
The second round started slower, giving the chance for Tommy Tankers to take the lead. However, even though the Tommy Tankers seemed to be making a slow comeback, the round still ended in victory for BigClan.
For the third round, the map changed to Ruinberg, and the teams took a moment to discuss a plan of attack. The Tommy Tankers attempted to rush BigClan by taking on tanks one at a time. The Tommy Tankers were doing much better than the first round, seeming to prefer longer battles to the shorter ones. Unfortunately for the Tommy Tankers, BigClan were still the more dominant team, and once again were victorious, making it 3 wins in a row for BigClan.
The fourth round was an intense one, as it was Tommy Tankers last chance to win a round a keep themselves in the tournament. The Tommy Tankers took advantage of the longer battle time, and seemed much more comfortable in their abilities than the first round. However, BigClan dominated managing to win their fourth round in a row.
BigClan will now get the chance to travel to China to take part in the World Cyber Games World of Tanks tournament! Thanks to both BigClan and Tommy Tanks for an exciting match.
