Blitzkrieg Battle

Blitzkrieg Battle

With Battalion 1944 Early Access being released today on Steam, thousands of players are already hitting the servers competing against each other. To further develop the competitive scene the community have already came together to produce an EU tournament which will take place each week.

Blitzkrieg Battle is a tournament series for Battalion 1944 which boasts a vanilla rule-set with the goal of helping the developers truly balance the game for tournament play. Blitzkrieg Battle takes place on a weekly basis with prizes each week.

The first tournament will take place this weekend (3rd February 2018 at 15:00 GMT / check in being between 14:00-14:30PM).

The schedule started off with a 32 slot team limit but due to popular demand it was increased to 64 teams which quickly filled up and exceeded with over 100 extra teams waiting as backups.

The event was organised by community member Sean who recently gained a sponsorship deal with Multiplay, who will provide game servers that will be required for the tournaments to ensure that it will run smoothly.

We spoke with Sean to find out what his goals for the tournaments are and he said:

Main goals are providing a stable competitive platform for players to grow and compete regularly. And also to create an environment where Bulkhead can achieve solid feedback and build their game around tournament play.

The tournament has gained attention from the Battalion 1944 development team Bulkhead, who have decided to support the tournament and give away war chests for the event so they can be given out as prizes.
