Team Navi win first place and $150,000 at World of Tanks 2016 grand final0 Comments
The two-day World of Tanks 2016 grand final that took place in Warsaw, Poland is now over, with the elite Ukrainian gaming group Navi managing to conquer the eleven other teams and earn the heralded first-place award, claiming as their own the gold medal prize of $150,000.
Their victory came down to the line against the opposing team Hellraisers, with Navi barely scraping their win through a 7-6 closing score. Second place has its benefit, though, as the silver winners Hellraisers still earned a respectable $75,000 prize, and third place Team Wombats on Tanks did very well for themselves by earning the bronze prize of $35,000.
Both team Hellraisers and team Navi are making a name for themselves at the tournament, as Navi was able to place third at last year's WGL 2015, while team Hellraisers was able to take home the gold. Last year's second place team, EL Gaming, was knocked out of this year's competition early on in the contest. With that sweet prize money in their pockets and the confidence of top-tier wins under their belts, these will be the teams to watch in the months leading up to next year's finals.
