KEEMSTAR’s Warzone Wednesdays came back for its fifth week, as many of the top content creators fought it out on Call of Duty’s battle royale for the $20k top prize.
Warzone has experienced massive success since its launch on March 10, with millions of players and many of the top streamers jumping into Verdansk.
Following the success of his events in other titles, such as Friday Fortnite and Minecraft Monday, KEEMSTAR has put together another tournament series for many of the top Warzone creators, offering up $20,000 as the weekly prize. The fifth week of the tournament just rolled around, and here’s everything you need to know about the latest Warzone Wednesday.
$20K Warzone Wednesdays Week 5 recap
Week 5 of Warzone Wednesday featured all the big names you’d come to expect from KEEMSTAR’s event. From the duo of Ninja and Dr Disrespect to NICKMERCS and Swagg, 16 star-studded teams dropped into battle on April 22 until there was only four players left.
Many big names were forced out of the competition early as the likes of H3CZ and Castro1021 dipped into the lower bracket after falling short in the very first round. Conversely, Dallas Empire’s Tommey and Warzone content creator Bobby Poff fought all the way through the winner’s side of the bracket until the finals.
In the grand final matchup that saw Tommey and Bobby Poff square up against NoahJ456 and Merk, the former came away with an early lead and snowballed from there. After a long day of Warzone, Tommey’s team took out the win in impressive fashion. “This is my first major tournament win,” Bobby Poff said immediately after finishing their final game.
