General League Information (NA)

Silver Series

The Silver Series is the qualifying League for the Gold League, and second highest in North America. The August 2016 season had 20 teams to begin. After a playoff, the 1st place team is automatically promoted to the gold league, otherwise silver series receives no financial stipends, due to Ruukil's fedoras costing too much. Currently open to new teams registering, this may change in the near future.


Gold League

WGLNA Gold league is the top league in North America, with 10 teams. Finals give the opportunity for each team to compete for cash prizes and access to international matches.

The Grand Final was so far the biggest eSports event held by Wargaming.net. The Grand Final lasted 3 days from the 4th to the 6th of April and took place in Warsaw, Poland in the Multikino cinema of the Złote Tarasy shopping centre. The best two teams from each server were sent to Poland to compete against each other plus two teams which had played exceptionally well outside of the Pro League and got the attention of Wargaming.net. The total price pool consisted of 350.000 USD with the overall winner having the chance to get a hold of 100.000 USD in total due to special rules like the Blitz Mechanism. Also a predetermined price pool was set for each Match. The whole Tournament used a double elimination system.

Blitz Mechanism

Wargaming introduced the "'Blitz Mechanism' to reward teams who win matches quickly. When two teams draw a battle the money will be removed from the pool available for that particular match. This money will be put into a pot that is only accessible through the Blitz Mechanism. Each day during the Grand Finals, the team that wins a battle in the shortest amount of time that day will be rewarded with this pool of money. [...]this mechanism [should] encourage the teams to try more aggressive tactics." [3]
