YouTuber and Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has brought Call of Duty fans a weekly tournament called Warzone Wednesday, featuring some of the biggest streamers and professional CoD players in the world going head-to-head in the new battle royale title.
Warzone has seen a lot of success in the few weeks since its launch, reaching tens of millions of players and becoming a popular title for the top streamers and content creators across multiple platforms.
So, to celebrate, Keem launched Warzone Wednesday in a similar format to Fortnite Friday back in 2018, which helped launch the careers of many of today’s Twitch streamers.
Here, you can find out everything you need to know about the third week of Warzone Wednesday, which was played on Monday, April 6, due to the following days being taken over by the launch of Riot Games’ beta for their new first-person shooter, Valorant.
$20K Warzone Wednesdays Week 3 recap
Week 3 of Warzone Wednesday had a seriously smaller showing than in previous weeks, though the winner of the first two tournaments, Josh ‘JoshOG’ Beaver and Diego ‘Diegosaurs’ Navarette, were still in attendance. They were joined by Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who was filling in for Apex Legends pro Jordan ‘Huskerrs’ Thomas as he was playing in the Apex Legends Global Series.
Due to the reduced number of teams, where previous weeks had up to 16, the tournament started at the semi-finals, pitting the two-time winners against Tom ‘72hrs’ Mulligan’s team while the opposing side of the bracket saw Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff’s team face-off against Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow’s.
The grand final saw Ninja, JoshOG and Diegosaurs come up against TeePee, NoahJ456 and Aydan 'Aydan' Conrad. Though it was fairly tight throughout, a couple of solid showings from Ninja’s side – as well as some tough luck for TeePee’s – kept the Mixer star on top, with his side eventually taking the win with 104 kills to TeePee’s 88 in the final.
Warzone Wednesday Week 3 final standings
The final standings were as follows:
|1st||Ninja, JoshOG, Diegosaurs||186||$20,000|
|2nd||TeePee, Aydan, NoahJ456||170||-|
|3rd||NICKMERCS, Swagg, Crowder||70||-|
|4th||72hrs, Felo, Trainwrecks||28||-|
Though this week’s Warzone Wednesday didn’t have as many teams and big names as fans would like to see, it was still an impressive showing and proved why these guys are as popular and successful as they are.
Hopefully, though, next week will feature another full bracket – and maybe we’ll see someone step up to knock JoshOG and Diegosaurs off of their perch.
