$20K Code Red Warzone event: Results & Recap
With Trios all set and ready to split up, the opening round of action kicked things off with some extremely close games. Three matchups went the distance as teams traded maps back and forth. However, only one Trio was able to cruise through without fault.
Team Aydan took down Team LEGIQN, Team HusKerrs, and Team SuperEvan without dropping a single map. That helped secure their spot in the Grand Finals with ease.
On the opposite end of the bracket, the likes of BobbyPoff and IceManIsaac found themselves knocked out without winning a series. Ultimately, it was Team SuperEvan that went on a run through the lower bracket to make the Grand Finals.
After a brief intermission to download the new Season 4 Reloaded patch, it was Team Aydan up against Team SuperEvan. After playing the first few maps, however, the 10-hour broadcast came to an end and teams were uncertain whether or not to continue. It was soon decided that the Grand Finals would be played without a central stream.
Following a swift bracket reset, it was ultimately Team Aydan who finished in first place.
$20K Code Red Warzone event: Streams & Schedule
The $20K Code Red Warzone event featured a hub stream directly on BoomTV’s official Twitch account. With the first lobbies dropping at 12PM PT | 3PM ET on July 14, this stream served as the best way to keep on top of results throughout the day.

$20K Code Red Warzone event: Format
Rather than a kill-race or a private lobby, this event relied on the Odd Man Out format. While teams registered together as a Trio, they weren’t actually playing together.
Two players from each Trio were loaded into a lobby with one ‘odd man’ from another Trio. These players then split up across Verdansk and hunted for as many kills as possible. The solo player then had their individual kills added onto the duos kills to form their point total.
All upper bracket games were best of three while lower bracket games were best of one.
