The London Royal Ravens’ $150,000 Warzone Royal Ruckus tournament has wrapped up, and the Call of Duty League team’s very own Skrapz finished in first place, along with teammates Jukeyz and Deleo.

The two-day event brought together a star-studded collection of streamers, Call of Duty pros, influencers, musicians, and entertainers for one of the biggest Warzone tournaments we’ve seen since the battle royale launched in March.

$100,000 of the prize pool was donated to the Equal Justice Initiative, while the remaining $50,000 was split among the top four teams from the final bracket.

Warzone Royal Ruckus final placements & bracket

As fate would have it, the Royal Ravens’ own star player Skrapz and his teammates Jukeyz and Deleo ended up winning the tournament, as they narrowly edged out HusKerrs’ squad 108-106 in the grand final.

Rounding off the top-four were DougisRaw’s team, who lost to HusKerrs in the semifinal stage, and Team Stellar, who were taken down by Skrapz’s squad in the other semis match.

As for the remaining teams, they were all eliminated following the first stage, which encompassed the first one-and-a-half days of the competition.

Only the top eight teams in the initial leaderboard made it to bracket play, the remaining teams’ position in the final placements was based on how many points they acquired from the timed-portion.

Just missing the cut were Vikkstar’s squad and Team Dom, both of whom finished within 10 points of that eighth and final playoff spot but unfortunately had to spend the rest of the event watching.

Dates

The tournament is taking place just after the launch of the new Season 4, which was delayed by a week but is now finally available.

The Warzone Royal Ruckus event will start on June 11, at 10am PST/1pm EST/6pm BST. It will run until June 12, meaning it takes place across two days.

Stream

The details for the tournament’s stream haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s fair to say we can expect to see it on Twitch, probably on a host of the competitors’ channels. The tournament is sponsored by HyperX, D-Cave and Activision Blizzard, so it’s likely the official channels will be providing gameplay clips and links to the event.

Prize Pool

As previously mentioned, the tournament will see $100,000 donated to the Equal Justice Initiative. The EJI is an American charity that seeks to combat injustice within the nation’s legal system, offering representation to prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted or cannot afford legal support.

Warzone star Rated joins Tommey on 100 Thieves’ roster

Building on the world’s first Call of Duty: Warzone esports team, 100 Thieves have added former London Royal Raven, Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, as the second member of their battle royale roster.

While Rated wasn’t a focal point of the Royal Ravens in the Call of Duty League, he has emerged as one of the best Warzone players on Verdansk. With his stream popping off and tournament money rolling in, it should be no surprise that he was among 100T’s top candidates for their growing roster.

When Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag announced that 100T would be fielding a battle royale team alongside their Los Angeles Thieves CDL squad, it was historic and fans were anxious to hear who would get signed.

Now, Rated joins fellow native of the United Kingdom and former CDL pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, as the team’s highly respected core.

Based in Los Angeles, some may be surprised that 100 Thieves have gone across the pond for their Warzone cornerstones. But, looking at Tommey and Rated’s successes in Verdansk, the signing becomes exponentially justified.

While Tommey sits at No. 5 on the Warzone earnings list, Rated is nearby at No. 7 with a hefty $70K in winnings. Those numbers become even more impressive when one factors in that Rated’s first major tournament invitation was in late June, while some of the other top earners began competing months earlier.

Characterized best as a steady player, Rated picks his angles and fights deliberately, shoots as straight as anyone, and has rightfully become known as one of Verdansk’s most intimidating forces. It’s a testament to his skill that competitors regularly express some degree of annoyance when finding out that they’re stuck in a lobby with the wicked Welshman.

Having teamed with Tommey many times already, the addition is a sensible one. Most recently, the duo took second place during the HusKerrs Howl tournament. While it’s unclear who else will be joining the roster, Tommey and Rated provide an excellent foundation with clear comms and a general reluctance to tilt.

With another Englishman, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, already signed to the Royal Ravens, one has to wonder if Nadeshot will put up the cash for Warzone’s best unsigned star: Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad.
