$20K Warzone Wednesdays Week 7 recap
Competition was closer than ever throughout the latest Warzone Wednesday event. Many duos brought their A-game as five teams managed to top 100 eliminations across their matches. Others had a rough go of it in Week 7 as powerhouse names like Ninja and Dr Disrespect, dropped to the losers bracket and were knocked out early.
The stage for the Grand Final series was set as TeePee and Aydan squared up against Vikkstar and ItzWarsz. While the closely contested matchup saw the second bracket reset in Warzone Wednesday history, according to commentator Kat ‘Mystik’ Gunn, the final round saw the gap grow between the two teams.
Ultimately, Vikkstar and ItzWarz carried momentum through from their Week 6 win and secured the back to back first-place prize. Aydan came through with the most individual kills throughout the event with 161, but it was the teamwork of Vikkstar and ItzWarsz that took home the overall win once again.

Format & rules
Warzone Wednesday features a popular format known as a ‘kill race,’ as the teams of two matched up against each other must queue into a Quads lobby together, so while they’re technically teammates in-game, they are opponents for the purposes of the tourney.
Teams will have to get as many eliminations as they can, and after two Warzone games, the duo with the more kills wins the match and advances to the next round in the bracket.
This tournament is split into two phases – a group stage and final stage. In the group stage, the 16 teams face each other in a single-elimination do-or-die match, with the eight winners moving on to the final stage.
This next phase features a double-elimination bracket, which means duos can afford to take one loss and still survive, although trying to make it out of the Losers Bracket is a tall order since the Winners Bracket victors need to only win one match in the Grand Final to be crowned champions.
As for the prize pool, the entirety of the $20,000 will go to the winning duo.
