FaZe Clan have organized a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament called 'Fight 2 Fund,' featuring some of the biggest names in the online gaming world, as well as several celebrities and pro athletes, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity of the winning team's choice.
Warzone is Call of Duty's latest run at the battle royale genre, and its recent launch has been met with incredible success. According to Activision, the game hit 15 million players over its first three days, which is an astounding feat, to say the least.
Looking to take advantage of all the hype, FaZe Clan have put together a massive charity event featuring the BR. This list of players includes many of their members, of course, but also other huge streamers, such as Dr Disrespect, and some pro athletes, like Ben Simmons and Juju Smith-Schuster.

FaZe Clan's Fight 2 Fund Warzone tournament format and rules
This tournament employs the classic "kill-race" format, meaning that the teams matched up against each other in the bracket have to load into matches and try to get more kills than their opponents.
At the end of each match, the squad in each matchup that gets more eliminations advances in the bracket, while the losing team gets knocked out.
"Teams of 3 are competing against each other to accumulate the most kills over the course of 1 game. The team with the most kills at the end of 1 game will advance in the tournament. The loser will be knocked out. In the event of a tie in kills after 1 game, a second game will be played to determine a tie-breaker. This process will continue until a winner is determined."
