World of Tanks March Mapness Tournament Begins March 24th

Pretty much everyone who competes will take home a prize.

In celebration of the ongoing March Madness basketball playoffs, Wargaming will soon be hosting its own tournament for World of Tanks which it has dubbed “March Mapness.”

According to the official tournament page, March Mapness will begin this upcoming Friday, March 24th, and will last until Sunday, March 26th. The tournament will feature 4v4 battles in which teams can use any Tier III-VI vehicle, and the reason behind the “March Mapness” moniker is because players will actually get to vote on some of the maps they compete on (so far, the Himmelsdorf and Prokhorovka maps have been confirmed).

Interestingly enough, for the March Mapness tournament, Wargaming will be using a far-reaching percent-based scale to determine which teams are awarded prizes once the tournament is over and what those prizes will be.

As you can see in the scale below, unless your team is at the very bottom of the rankings, you’ll get something for your troubles.
