Call of Duty League’s Minnesota ROKKR hosted their second ROKKR Royale, the first massive Warzone tournament in Season 6, that featured many of the top streamers and pro players battling it out for a share of a $100,000 prize pool. We’ve got everything you need to catch up on the action.
There has been plenty of competitive action so far on Warzone, as many of the top content creators have turned to Call of Duty’s battle royale, taking part in the different tournaments that have been hosted in recent months.
CDL team Minnesota ROKKR hosted the first the “ROKKR Royale” back in April, and have since brought it back with an increased prize pool and even more top streamers and Call of Duty pro players.
Now that Season 6 is live in Warzone, along with the brand new subway system and all the other changes, it was the perfect time to see who from the battle royale’s elite could be the first to dominate.
ROKKR Royale Warzone Tournament Recap
After a delay to the event due to the shaky launch of Season 6, the ROKKR Royale event properly got underway on September 30. Stacked Trios took to Verdansk for a few hours to determine who would make it through to the final four. Throughout the initial portion, only the best four games for each team was taken into consideration. As a result, those that were able to chase down eliminations and secure some wins were given a sizeable lead.
A handful of veteran players and prominent Warzone tournament winners bowed out early in this event. From Chicago Huntsmen’s Formal to Tfue’s squad and plenty others. Cracking the 300-point mark was a feat only accomplished by 13 teams and this is where things got tight. The difference between the top of that pack and the bottom was barely a few kills. Ultimately, it was Symfuhny, Tommey, Frozone, and Swagg who led their Trios into the final rounds, however.
After some extremely close lobbies and a handful of wins, it was Shmfuhny, HusKers, and Zlaner who proved to be the strongest of the top four. Just two points separated them from the second-place team of Swagg, Booya, and Superevan. Additionally, the team of TTinyy, Rallied, and Mayappo_ won $10,000 for achieving the most eliminations throughout the day at 78 kills.
