JGOD $100K Warzone Tournament: Results, recaps, highlights
Week 4: Tommey & Almond dominate Grand Finals
Tommey and Almond simply went off this week. Following up a win in the Atlanta FaZe $25,000 the day prior, this duo came in hot and kept boiling up the opposition. By the end, they had a 6-1 map count, $20K in their pockets, and some nutty statistics. Along with the win and joining the Minnesota Rokkr, Almond has had one heck of a week.

According to InTheZone, the 100 Thieves and Minnesota ROKKR streamers each posted top-three K/Ds on the day: Tommey with a 10.09 and Almond with a 9.21. The duo was able to drop those numbers and big highlight plays thanks to a blend of composure, helicopter management, and absolute beams.
As for the rest of the day’s earners, here’s the full prizing breakdown:
|1st||Tommey & Almond||$20,000|
|2nd||HusKerrs & Newbz||$10,000|
|3rd||Frozone & aHTracT||$6,000|
|4th||ZLaner & Destroy||$4,000|
* This prizing applies solely to Grand Finals, there were also match win and score differential bonuses applied in earlier weeks.
Week 3: MuTeX & ScummN take out the final week of qualifiers
The third and final round of qualifiers were arguably the most intense yet. Duos were putting up more kills than ever in some of the toughest lobbies to date. As a result, many of the biggest names bowed out with rather insignificant scores.
An impressive showing from MuTeX & ScummN locked in the top spot and close behind was Aydan & Rated. Together, these two teams were able to qualify for the upcoming Grand Finale.
|1st||MuTeX & ScummN||4||369|
|2nd||Aydan & Rated||3||310|
|3rd||SuperEvan & DiazBiffle||2||360|
|4th||Pieman & Blazt||2||269|
|5th||DougisRaw & exzachtt||2||198|
|6th||Swagg & GDBooya||1||224|
Week 2: ZLaner & Destroy cruise to the top alongside Huskerrs & Newbz
Throughout the second date of JGOD’s event, six more Duos lined up to compete in this unique format.
While it certainly wasn’t without its controversy, the day ended with Zlaner & Destroy atop the pack with Huskerrs & Newbz close behind.
|1st||ZLaner & Destroy||4||219|
|2nd||Huskerrs & Newbz||4||399|
|3rd||Jukeyz & Fifakill||1||163|
|4th||Bobbypoff & Mayappo||3||219|
|5th||KaleiReany & Pork||1||134|
|6th||Teepee & Unrational||2||208|

Just one week remains ahead of the final showdown. Therefore, only a few seats are left at the table for the real $100K battle to close the show.
Week 1: Tommey & Almond dominate opening group
Not satisfied with just leading their group in wins (four, tied with IceManIsaac’s team), Tommey and Almond also led the group — easily — in kills: 149. That kill total was 40-plus more than second-place and proves why the Warzone duo was a major favorite coming into the week.

While Tommey and Almond proved their mettle and secured first place (and $6,250 for their big games), three other upcoming teams joined them and qualified for Week 4.

The JGOD tournament had an interesting format: it’s three weeks of round-robin pool play, each with a different group that determines who qualified for the final Week 4: Grand Finale.
Each week’s groups were different, meaning that all invitees got chances to prove their worth. The format was a round-robin, so each team in each group also received a minimum of five games to assert themselves.
