Tank you very much!

Rumbling away in Minsk, Belarus was the World of Tanks Blitz Twister Cup; this year sponsored by the makers of everything storage related SanDisk. The lineup of competitors featured six of the best World of Tanks Blitz teams locking gun-sights on each other and battling it out for a prize pool of $100,000.

With teams from Europe, Asia/Pacific, North America, and Russia, there was plenty of competition on offer, but victory fell to the European team Radioactive. The team, made up of tankers from Germany and Switzerland, represented EU in the Twister Cup and were crowned champions on Saturday, November 17 after brawling with continental rivals throughout the day and claiming a 4:1 victory over CIS counterparts, Ace Ventura, in the finale. Radioactive (RA1D) took home $50,000 for their triumphant effort.

“Victory in the Blitz Twister Cup means a lot to us. First of all, it strengthens our bond with each other and intensifies our friendship. Secondly, it made us dive into eSports even deeper than before and showed us all the possibilities of what someone can achieve in their life if you try hard, follow your dreams and never give up,” states Jan Peter Haupenthal, Radioactive team captain.
