RESULTS - Recap and Final Standings

Considering the fact that both Bizzle and Dmo are considered among the top Fortnite players in the world, it came as no shock to anyone that the pair took first place at this week's Code Red tournament.

What was surprising, however, was that it took the duo until the sixth round and a very slim lead to claim the top spot, as they had been hanging around the top ten pretty much the entire tournament without getting a taste of first place through the first five rounds.

Having won the Solo tournament at the recent Secret Skirmish, it came as no surprise that the Code Red winning duo included Ghost Gaming's Bizzle.

The earlier rounds of the competition were dominated by Team SoloMid's Kaysid and FaZe Clan's Jaomock, who led the field after three of the first four rounds, thanks to the fact that they finished first, third, and fourth in rounds one, two, and four respectively. 

However, starting from the fourth round, Bizzle and Dmo began taking the initiative, getting nine eliminations and a Victory Royale to propel themselves to second.

A subpar performance in round five saw them slip to third, as Ghost's Saf and NRG Esports' Zayt briefly took the top spot with Kaysid and Jaomock sitting in second. 

In the sixth and final round, Bizzle and Dmo showed their championship resiliency by placing second and grabbing five eliminations, which was just enough to claim the top spot and secure the tournament victory. 

With the tournament now all wrapped up, here are the duos that finished in the top five and earned themselves a share of the $10,000 prize pool.

What was the format used in Code Red?

Much like the previous running of the competition, this Code Red main event was played on a custom server, so it did not feature the usual 'total of two kill race' format we've been made accustomed to. 

50 duos were placed in a custom server, where they played a total of six total matches - three on the NA-West server and three on NA-East. 

The scoring system used for this tournament rewarded teams based on both eliminations and match placements, using on the following breakdown:

  • Each kill is worth 6 points

Tiebreakers are determined in the order presented here: total points scored, total Victory Royales in the session, total eliminations in the session, average placement across any matches in the session, and finally a Coin Flip.


Who played in the Code Red main event?

As usual, this week's Code Red Fortnite tournament featrured some of the biggest names in the battle royale community, including pro players and content creators from prominent orgs like Ghost Gaming, Team Liquid, Team SoloMid, and 100 Thieves.
