Twitch Rivals Warzone Showdown: Results & Recap
With yet another $75,000 up for grabs, Warzone’s top talent came out swinging once again. Five custom lobbies played out back to back with different teams stealing the spotlight in each of them.
While some Trios pushed for high-kill games, others played it more passively, looking for placement multipliers to boost them up the rankings.
As action began to wind down, scores couldn’t have been closer heading into the fifth and final map. Just 16 points separated the top 10 Trios.
