2014 Wargaming.net eSports league starts now

It's just starting to hit me now that if I were to become good at videogames I could get some money. These prize pools are ridiculous! It's too bad I'm terrible at games. Wargaming announced the start of the first season of t...

Wargaming.net League Grand Finals recap from Warsaw, Poland photo
Wargaming.net League Grand Finals recap from Warsaw, Poland
by Dale North

The skinny arms of one of the team members of team Natus Vincere (also known as Na'Vi) were warbling dangerously as he attempted to lift the massive block of solid metal that is the trophy for the Wargaming.net League Grand Finals World Champions. His teammates rushed in to help him as spotlights shone down and a theater full of fans cheered and applauded in Warsaw, Poland this past Sunday. 

Natus Vincere took down 13 other teams over the three days of the event, which had players from six regions battling, and had fans and press from all over the world watching on while they did so. They took home about $110,000 in prize money, with runner-up team Virtus.Pro taking almost $100,000 themselves.

World of Tanks in 2014: Mobile MMO, new PC engine, console updates coming

I met with Wargaming boss Victor Kislyi last week in a dark, quiet, private meeting room on the GDC expo floor on an early morning following what was probably the biggest party of the week. The chief executive looked surprisi...

Tanks a lot: World of Tanks Xbox 360 hands-on
by Dale North

I tried my best to flank the enemy and shoot out his treads while trying out World of Tanks for Xbox 360 at gamescom. That helps. Lesson learned. That was after a previous unsuccessful roll-out where I died so quickly that I kind of hoped no one was watching. 

Everyone was watching.

I got some quick hands-on time with both the Xbox 360 and iPad versions of World of Tanks in a gamescom meeting with Wargaming. The insanely popular tank MMO is now making its way to other platforms, with the Xbox 360 currently in beta in North America. The European side of this beta launches this week, too. Asia will follow, as will CIS. Wargaming says that getting the servers set up for all of this has not been easy.

World of Warplanes flies right onto my radar photo
World of Warplanes flies right onto my radar
by Dale North

World of Tanks? It's not for me. I think tanks are f*cking awesome, but the MMO craze that has some 65 million people playing somehow doesn't do it for me.

Now, what I've seen for upcoming title World of Warships looks intriguing, but that's some ways off. Though we do not have a solid release date yet, World of Warplanes is coming first, sometime this fall. I spent some quality time with Warplanes last week, and that was enough to have me looking forward to hitting the skies once more.

Wargaming is pushing for quicker updates on Xbox 360

Although it's highly unlikely I'll play much World of Tanks on Xbox 360 outside of sheer curiosity for how Wargaming will bring the game over from PC, I must say, its arrival on the console is one I'm greatly anticipatin...
