The Last Dance in Verdansk Main Event Results & Recap
With $75K on the line in one of the final tournaments set in Verdansk, players dropped in with their sights set on gold. After three grueling rounds of qualifiers, everyone was pushing for the top spot in the Main Event.
While action started off without a hitch, as the first six matches flew by, the Main Event quickly hit a massive bump in the road. Qualifier #2 winners Ahzvm & SlideHD_ were thrown into the spotlight as various competitors grew suspicious of their actions on the final day of competition.
The entire event was derailed as admins investigated claims of hacking. Ahzvm cooperated every step of the way in attempt to prove his innocence. After 30 minutes of heated debate, no concrete evidence could be backed up so the admins made a final call.
Ahzvm was cleared to play for the remainder of the event and the last two maps got back underway shortly after.
Before long, the ultimate winners were crowned as Rivs2 & Destroy took home the lion’s share of the prize.

The Last Dance in Verdansk Qualifier 3 Results & Recap
Qualifiers 3 was the final chance for Warzone’s top talent to secure a spot in The Last Dance. Just five more positions were up for grabs in this round, along with the usual $25,000, so once again, every single player came out swigning.
Carrying their momentum over from a huge $75,000 Twitch Rivals win just 24 hours prior, ItsEyeQew & Arrayyz managed to win the first map.
This time around, however, they couldn’t maintain their lead all the way through the event.
Other Duos like Mayappo & OtterEyes along with JoeWo & Bbreadman pushed ahead as the lobbies went by. Though ultimately, it was a huge effort from KenzRosey & aHTracT12 that secured the top spot overall.

It was a close race among the top teams as Day 2 drew to a close, though ultimately, none could catch up this underdog Duo on fire.

As one of the biggest events in Warzone history, each and every custom game is sure to be a banger. Duos are hungry for those Main Event spots, so it came as no surprise when action got off to a hot start on day one.
With the likes of Swagg, Aydan, Tommey, Dr Disrespect, and HusKerrs all dropping in, to name a few, the first qualifying round was absolutely stacked with elite Warzone talent.
After warming up in the first two maps, it was Swagg and his FaZe Clan Duo Booya that caught fire in map three.
Not only did Swagg and Booya collect the all-important custom lobby win, but they did so with 21 kills to their name. This launched them well into first place, with everyone else stuck trying to catch up for the remainder of the event.
Tommey and Almond just so happened to be up for the challenge. Two ridiculous maps in the final moments of day one had the Duo cruising through the rankings, all the way to the top spot. Not only did they finish first, but they pushed a whopping 17 points ahead of Team Swagg in second place.
