$300K World Series of Warzone: Results & Recap
With only six custom games to prove themselves, teams came out firing on all cylinders right from the jump. Aydan was able to take an early lead with some impressive point totals across the first few games, both individually and with his whole team behind him.
Before long, Swagg was hot on heels with just six points separating them in the Captain’s Standings ahead of game five. As the final match booted up, first place was still within reach for just about every squad as one killer performance could easily push anyone up the rankings.
Ultimately, it was a monstrous effort from Aydan, Rated, and HusKerrs in the final lobby that pushed them into first-place. An absurd pace led to 24 kills and a nail-biting top 15 finish to secure the overall event win.
