JoeWo’s Warzone Battle for the Crown: Full results & recap

With 16 stacked Duos dropping into Verdansk, games were intense right from the jump. In the first round alone we saw numerous Warzone event winners squaring off against one another, while CDL pros put their skills to the test against popular streamers as well.

For some, things didn’t quite go according to plan. Although he may be a feared flanker in the CDL, Envoy’s team couldn’t find their footing in Verdansk, dropping out with a 0-3 map count.

Meanwhile, it was the likes of DiazBiffle, HusKerrs, and MuTeX that cruised through the upper bracket. Amusingly enough, JoeWo himself went on an impressive run with Stukawaki, landing a spot in the grand final’s against HusKerrs & Newbz

While they secured an early lead, JoeWo & Stukawaki ran out of steam in the seventh hour of competitive Warzone. Instead, it was HusKerrs & Newbz who kept the momentum rolling, securing a bracket reset in the finals to win the $10,000 first-place prize.
