TeeP's Trials Warzone Tourney Recap
No different from previous weeks, TeeP's latest event featured all the familiar faces you'd come to expect from a big Warzone competition. From NICKMERCS & Swagg to Vikkstar & itzwarsz, a wide array of former event winners were welcomed back alongside a number of up and comers as well. Competition was fierce right out of the gate in this duos event as even the most recent Warzone champions were in trouble early on.
Having only just won FaZe Swagg's Summer Warzone Invitational 24 hours prior, the duo of Aydan & MuTeX came in with nothing but confidence. After just one map, however, they soon landed in hot water. They were narrowly knocked out in the first round of the upper bracket before losing to Karma & ScummN to end their tournament run. While a few marquee names were able to push further into the event, many of the most popular duos fell to a similar fate and found themselves eliminated early..
The grand finals saw Jukeyz & YKTDeleo squaring off against Mvriiooo & zSmittyTV. While the newcomers were close to sealing the deal and causing the upset over Jukeyz and his duo, the second map didn't go in their favor. Both teams survived through to the final 30 players but Mvriiooo & zSmittyTV were the first to go down.

Format, rules, prize breakdown
This is a 16-team, double-elimination Duos tournament using the 'kill-race' format that takes place in public matches. The teams matched up against each other in each round of the bracket must queue into a Quads match together, meaning that while they're technically teammates in-game, they're opponents for the purposes of the competition.
In the Winners Bracket, matches are two games each, with the duo that gets the more eliminations through both games advancing. The same concept applies for the Losers Bracket, except those matches are only a single game.
The winners of the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket then meet in the Grand Final, but the latter needs to win two separate matches (four games total) to be crowned champions, while the former needs only one.
In case of any ties, one additional game is played where the first duo to hit 10 kills is the winner, and if no one manages to get that many, the team that ends up with the more eliminations advances.
There's also this major rule in case Jailbreak in-game event occurs:
If a duo is fully eliminated and have no Gulag attempts left and the in-game event "Jailbreak" occurs. Upon re-deploying because of this event, the duo who was fully eliminated before this event was initiated in-game must immediately eliminate themselves. Players that have been re-deployed because of this CANNOT float around in their parachutes or accumulate or attempt to accumulate further eliminations. Doing so may result in a forfeit. Any eliminations accumulated by the eliminated team will not count.
To eliminate yourself upon re-deploy due to "Jailbreak" being activated, open your parachute and immediate cut the cord to your parachute. Doing this will cause your character to fall straight to the ground and eliminate yourself.
As for the prize breakdown, the $15,000 prize pool will be split between the top-four placing teams, with the winner receiving a whopping $7,000!
- 1st Place: $7,000
- 2nd Place: $5,000
- 3rd Place: $2,000
