Wargaming.net has become the headline sponsor for the European Games Award 2011.
The awards, now widely recognized as one of Europe’s largest games award ceremonies and taking place before the start of the giant Gamescom event, will be held on 13th August 2011 on the event ship Pure Liner 1, moored on the Rhine river in Cologne.
Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net, is proud to be involved in such an important industry event “A games-award, which allows players from all over Europe to not only nominate games and companies, but to choose the winner themselves, is a fantastic idea” he said. “By working to this model, not only do developers gain valuable feedback from regions they usually have little or no contact with, but games and companies which might have been under the regional radar now receive public attention. We are very happy that we can support this great initiative”.
The European Games Award is Europe’s largest consumer award regarding gaming and honors the best games, developers, publishers and platforms. At the ceremony, the awards are handed out by well-known members of the video game industry, this year including Ian Pickles and Kelvin Aston from Team17.
