2015 World Tournament Series
Powered by Alienware
The World Tournament Series is the pinnacle of Guild Wars 2 PvP competition, with the top teams from North America, Europe, and China all going head-to-head with the goal of taking home the title of World Champion and the lion’s share of the $50,000 USD prize pool.
The road to the final stage is not one easily traveled. Teams will face many challenges along the way, putting their skills, mental fortitude, and endurance to the ultimate test. In order to secure a spot in the finals, teams will need to prove to the world that they, above all others, deserve to be there.
This tournament is rife with rivalry and old grudges, and each team is looking to prove themselves in what’s shaping up to be the most epic showdown in Guild Wars 2 tournament history. You’re not going to want to miss this!
North America, Europe, and China—who do you stand behind?
James “Kaelaris” Carrol and Daniel “Jebro” Littleton will be shoutcasting the event, with ChroNick, Blackmoa, and Wafflewrath supporting the broadcast from the analyst’s desk.
