Twitch Rivals $50K Warzone Showdown: Results & Recap
With just five private lobbies for teams to prove themselves, things quickly got off to an intense start. While kills were vital, everyone was pushing for that top spot in order to multiply their points. No one could quite match the exceptional game one performance of Team Bloo as they secured a whopping 44 points.
Moving forward, however, they could never get back to that elite finish, dropping less than 44 across the next three games combined. It was Team Aydan and Team Tommey who switched on after game one, putting up consistent high-scoring games to move further up the overall standings.
Heading into the final series, just 13 points separated them at the very top. Ultimately, it was Tommey’s team that overcame the odds and secure the first place finish after a massive 38 point final map.

Twitch Rivals $50K Warzone Showdown: Format
In a similar style to earlier Twitch Rivals Warzone events, the latest competition featured a standard Trios kill-race structure. However, for this event, this tournament dropped every team into the same, private lobby. Meaning a slower pace was to be expected as teams battled for better placements, along with the regular kills. Rather than simply awarding bonus points for a better finish, Twitch Rivals added a multiplier to the total number of kills.
For example, if the winning team secured 10 kills, their total would be doubled to give them 20 points for that game. Below is a complete breakdown of the kill multiplier.
