“Season two of the ANZ Premier League is set to be bigger and better with new partners, new talent and a prize pool twice as big as season one,” said World of Tanks ANZ Product Manager, Jake Truman. “We’re proud to be continuing the growth of the local esports scene and are keen to see what teams and players have to show us”
With returning teams Adelaide Action X, Auckland Archers, Brisbane Bulldogs, Christchurch Conquerors, Melbourne Matildas, Perth Panthers, North Sydney Sentinels and South Sydney Skoprions, ANZPL Season 2 is primed to be full of surprises.
A draft was held to determine team rosters in February. Teams were able to choose seven players (five main players and two reserves). To keep the city and state based flair, at least three players had to come from the same location as the team.
World Of Tanks has officially partnered with Fortress Melbourne as the production partner for ANZPL Season 2. HyperX and Republic of Gamers are also come on board as partners, with gear being given away during live broadcasts.
