Hello everyone, as was the case with Viktor Kislyi, Daniel Chau (ESGN TV e-sports channel) made an interview with Mohamed “Moneo” Fadl (AKA “Imhotep”), the chief of EU community department and also apparently the director of the e-sports division for Europe and North America. I hope he got a raise for that. * * Inside: - 2013 was crazy for Wargaming, it was the community who originally pushed for e-sports - the introduction of WoT e-sports was rushed (WG was not prepared) - the first year of WGL in EU had like 40 teams, the second (2013) already had 4100 teams (over 200k players) - WG is very pleased with how the WGL finals in Warsaw went, they weren’t sure anyone would come to visit the finals - Polish fans are passionate - Wargaming was quite surprised apparently when “underdog” teams started beating the favourites (Lemming Train vs Synergy is mentioned) - WG doesn’t want e-sports to stagnate (“same strategy over and over”), so apparently there will be rules changes - “format (7/42) will most likely change in future” - apparently, there will be 3 seasons (EU and NA) – two long and one “all-star” short - Moneo mentioned that since last week, there are integrated Twitch functions in the game, so people can stream (SS: have you noticed anything like that? o.O)
