Team Parasite, Team GaGOD win Twitch Rivals Warzone Season 6 showdown

The action kicked off in Europe, and it was a tight one. GaGOD’s team was neck and neck with izakooo’s for almost the entirety of the bracket. The two squads made it into the Top 10 with ease, giving each other one last chance to pull ahead.

It was GaGOD who made it to the top though. While both teams finished with 344 points, GaGOD and his duo Fifakill were able to pick up more wins, and therefore won the tie-breaker.

Over the Atlantic, Parasite showed up with his duo in Stukawaki. He decimated the competition to take home the win with 386 points, 20 ahead of his nearest rival in HusKerrs.

Other big names like Aydan failed to pop off, with the Warzone superstar finishing in 9th.

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.
