Status Report: Virtus.pro stops playing World of Tanks
an odd piece of news came from the Russian server. One of the best-known e-sports World of Tanks teams, Virtus.pro, is stopping to play World of Tanks, according to the Virtus.pro site (currently down). One of the team members and a team manager Sergey Pisotsky explains:
"The decision was not simple. The reason for it was that the cybersports tank audience did not meet our expectations. Although the cybersports department of Wargaming has put a lot of effort into popularizing the cybersports element, the events and transmissions of WoT cannot currently in our opinion attract a sufficient number of fans and supporters."
"We took this decision with regret. We had faith in the success of this cybersports discipline, that's why we were one of the first to start a professional WoT team. Now we are one of the last ones to leave WoT. We will continue to keep an eye on this discipline and hope that in the future, WoT cybersports will win the hearts of fans as well as of all cybersports lovers."
