ZLaner $100k Certified Banger: Results & Recap
With the prize pool doubled from ZLaner’s last event, Warzone’s top dogs came out in full force for the latest tourney. While many were playing with an unfamiliar third due to the Facebook requirements, most were still able to get some early synergy going.
The first two games saw the likes of Team Rivs and Team Aydan both clearing double-digit scores on each map.
Though the single biggest lobby of the day came in map five when Tommey, Almond, and Nickool took over in a big way. Together the Trio put up 17 kills with a second-place finish for a whopping 34.2 points.
