As excitement builds around ANZPL Season 4, the World Of Tanks ANZBL Season 3 draft jumps into action. A second division to the ANZPL, the ANZBL features players from across the ANZ region. It gives players valuable experience in the 5v5 game mode. Players that have registered and gone through the qualifiers will be eligible for selection in the ANZBL.
Four teams return for ANZBL Season 3 with hopes of enough interest for two additonal teams. That brings the ANZBL to six teams and with plans for relegation and promotion between the ANZPL and ANZBL already underway, World Of Tanks is growing their competitive scene. New Zealand will be guaranteed a team to help grow the esport there.
Following the same rules as the ANZPL, teams must have at least three of their seven player roster from the area they are named after. The other four can come from any area in the ANZ region. Matches can only feature Tech Tree and Collector vehicles with wheeled and reward vehicles prohibited. Teams can also only take two of the same model of tank into battles.
