Game 1 - Bugha takes command and never looks back

Bugha's road to becoming the World Cup champion started in match one, where he got the Victory Royale and kicked off what ended up being a wire-to-wire victory. The win, coupled with his nine eliminations, gave him a strong 19-point haul to kick things off.

13-year-old Argentinian player KING set a huge impression as well during the first match, making some aggressive pushes for eliminations to get second place.

Game 2 - Clutch endgame seals the win for Skite

A very intense endgame between FaZe Clan's Dubs and LeStream Esport's Skite ended in the way of the Frenchman, who got the Victory Royale despite just having eight health points when the match finished.

The win was enough to push Skite into sixth place, but game one standouts Bugha and KING did enough to keep their places atop the leaderboard.

Game 3 - Dubs gets his dub

Not letting his narrow second-place finish in the previous match faze him (no pun intended), Dubs regained quickly to get a strong Victory Royale in game three.

He found himself in another intense 1v1 at the end of the match, this time against Team Liquid's Riversan, but this time he came out on top. 

Game 4 - Psalm denies FaZe back-to-back wins

FaZe had the chance to get a second straight Victory Royale as their newly acquired star Mongraal was on an elimination rampage in the last stages of the match.

However, CLG's Psalm denied Mongraal the cherry on the top, eliminating him to get the Victory Royale, even though it was just his first elimination. 

Game 5 - Kreo clutches up, but Bugha builds his lead

The second-to-last match of the Solos tournament saw Lazarus' Kreo take the Victory Royale, boosting himself all the way up to third place in the standings.

However, Bugha's three eliminations and fourth place finish continued to add points to his overwhelming tally, giving him a whopping 15 point lead going into the final match. 

Game 6 - Crue gets the final win; Bugha crowned champion

The sixth and final match saw Swedish pro Crue of Valhalla Vikings get the Victory Royale, pushing him all the way to sixth place in the final standings.

However, it was Bugha who stole the show in the last game, staying alive until nearly the very end to secure another healthy dosage of points and secure the tournament victory.
