I’m really starting to think that the chaps over at Wargaming – the folks responsible for free-to-play phenomenon World of Tanks – didn’t actually read any of their contracts regarding bringing their game to the Xbox 360. Not long after the big announcement, they started getting a bit moany. First, they complained about the game needing Xbox Live Gold, and now they say that Xbox Live’s policies just aren’t suited to their game.
Up until now, Riot’s League of Legends and Valve’s Dota 2 have been hogging the eSports spotlight with their million dollar prize pools, but Wargaming.net wants a piece of the eSports pie. They’ve announced a 2.5 million dollar prize pool for their eSports season of 2013.
