JoeWo’s $50K Battle for the Crown: Streams & Schedule

As you would expect from an event hosted by JoeWo, the NRG streamer is sure to be hosting the tournament directly on his Twitch channel. While he may be competing himself, keeping an eye on JoeWo’s broadcast will likely be the best way to keep on top of results throughout each day of the tournament.

It all kicked off on Tuesday, May 10, with tournament dates then following with each passing week. May 17 marks the midway point while May 24 serves as the final day for teams to prove themselves.

JoeWo’s $50K Battle for the Crown: Format

While the first Battle for the Crown event featured a simple Duos kill-race format, the second iteration is a little more complicated. As the sequel is split across three days, each leg of the tournament comes with its own unique ruleset.

Below is a breakdown of each weekly format:

  • Week 1: Ground Loot only
  • Week 2: Opposite inputs (EG, controller players must use mouse and keyboard)
  • Week 3: Standard kill-race finale

While the first week was certainlye interesting, it’s week two where things really get dicey. Warzone’s top stars have all made a name for themselves while using their preferred equipment. 

Now, they have to mix things up and test their skills with unfamiliar equipment. Expect plenty of laughs before the going gets tough again with the kill-race finale in week three.

JoeWo’s $50K event is tied for the biggest of any Warzone tournament this month.

While we know 32 streamers are supposed to be competing in each round, there’s no telling who might appear. While Week 1 featured the likes of Swagg, Tommey, Aydan, and plenty more, there’s no guarantee they’ll be back for the following weeks.
