Tug of War: Dire list of participants ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The second tournament of the Tug of War series called WePlay! Tug of War: Dire will begin on May 28.

This time we won’t have any boring group stages – instead, we’ll divide contenders from America and Asia into two separate Single Elimination brackets within our new format. Battle-hardened fighters will be divided into two independent Single Elimination brackets, and each will get its own champion. Both winners will receive a slot on the LAN-finals at WePlay! Tug of War: Mad Moon, where the teams will fight for a solid prize pool of $ 300,000.

Eight teams will be directly invited for the first round of the coming standoff, while four more teams will bypass the early stage and start their tournament performance in the quarterfinals.
