The World of Tanks Blitz eSports team, comprised of six Germans and one Swiss, cash the $50,000 prize
The Blitz Twister Cup Powered by SanDisk was held this weekend in Minsk, Belarus seeing the six best World of Tanks Blitz teams locking heads and battling it out for the huge $100,000 prize pool. Europe’s very own Radioactive saw off representatives from APAC, North America and the CIS to be crowned champions and take home the grand prize: $50,000.
“Victory in the Blitz Twister Cup means a lot to us. First of all, it strengthens our bond with each other and intensifies our friendship. Secondly, it made us dive into eSports even deeper than before and showed us all the possibilities of what someone can achieve in their life if you try hard, follow your dreams and never give up,” states Jan Peter Haupenthal, Radioactive team captain. “We will surely participate in further eSports events in World of Tanks Blitz and try to defend our title next year! Thanks to Wargaming for this great game and this wonderful experience that showed once again how our world is currently in a shift where eSports are becoming a more and more respected and promising part of your future.”
The team, made up of tankers from Germany and Switzerland, represented EU in the Twister Cup and were crowned champions on Saturday 17 November after brawling with continental rivals throughout the day and claiming a 4:1 victory over CIS counterparts, Ace Ventura, in the finale.
