Cruising through the upper bracket, British YouTuber Vikkstar123, and his teammate ‘Itz_WarsZ,’ put on a clinic, toppling the likes of Nadeshot and Cloakzy on their way to the finals. Week 5 winners Tommey and bobbypoff were there to greet them in the final matchup, however.

Ultimately, back to back event wins weren’t quite in the cards as Vikkstar and his duo had other plans in mind. After a back and forth series and even a bracket reset, it was Vikkstar and Itz_WarsZ that came out on top in Week 6 of Warzone Wednesdays.

Format & rules

Warzone Wednesday is a double-elimination tournament that employs a format commonly known as ‘kill-race,’ as the teams matched up against each other in the bracket must queue into a Quads lobby together, so while they’re technically teammates in-game, they are opponents for the purposes of the tourney.

The objective is to try and get more eliminations than the other team, and after two standard Warzone games, the pair with the most kills advances to the next round.

As is standard with double-elimination competitions, the team that makes it out of the Winners Bracket will have to just win one series in the Grand Final to be crowned champions, while the Losers Bracket winner will have to win two.

As for the prize pool, the entirety of the $20,000 will go to the winning team, so two players will end the day each $10,000 richer.
