FaZe Face Off Warzone tournament recap

The latest Warzone competition had plenty to play for. Teams were competing for a share of the enormous prize pool so everyone brought their A-game. Each squad was filled out with veteran players, popular content creators, and mainstream celebrities to keep things balanced. As a result, scorelines could not have been closer.

A few hours passed as all 25 lineups got into a groove and put up their best games. Ultimately, only a handful made it through to the finals portion of the event. It’s here that the stakes were raised and some of the most clutch plays came out. Tommey’s team had their backs against the wall going into their final match of the day. They were down in kills, wins, and therefore overall points. Yet they managed to close out one of the most intense games they’ll ever play.

A win was needed, as were a few dozen kills. That’s exactly what they got done in the final round to eek out a minuscule lead over second-place and take out the win. Similar can be said for teams further down the line as it was just single-digit kills that separated second and third place in the final standings. Check out the final placements for the top eight teams below.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, which were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be announced, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
