Be quick, there's not much time left, and your chance to go to Moscow (have to be available 15-16 September) and win prizes may go if you don't catch it quick!

So, to clarify, let's hear what the devs have to say:

Wargaming - the award-winning game developer and publisher - announces the opening of registration for the upcoming International Ural Steel Championship 2012 for its flagship MMO action game World of Tanks. Registration begins today and will continue through July 31, 2012.

"World of Tanks has become a global eSport discipline," says Victor Kislyi, Wargaming CEO. "The game is turning into a massive communication platform that merges together gaming communities of different countries and regions."

Sixteen teams of the world's best World of Tanks gamers from America, Europe, Russia, China, and Southeast Asia will compete on six battle maps for their shot at the bragging rights of Ural Steel Championship 2012 winner and a prize purse of $77,000 USD. The Grand Finals will take place on September 15th - 16th at CSKA Sport Arena in Moscow, Russia.

The tournament is organized by Wargaming in partnership with UralVagonZavod, one of the largest scientific and industrial complexes in Russia and the largest tank manufacturer in the world and in association with the Russian Cyber-sport Federation.

"We'll continue to encourage and support eSport events like Ural Steel in the future, providing attractive prizes and contributing our skills and knowledge to make these events even more exciting," states Kislyi. The first Ural Steel Championship was held last year and became a virtual battleground for more than 40,000 players from nearly 30 countries.
