NA RECAP

FaZe Clan pro player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney finished first place in the NA tournament thanks to a dominant 13 points. His championship run was fueled by an impressive back-to-back Victory Royales in matches 2-3, with four and five eliminations respectively

He was followed by Team Liquid pro ‘Vivid,’ who also finished the event with 13 points. The placing was good enough to secure $30,000 and 135 points for the Lucky Llamas.

His clutch performance in the sixth and final match was crucial to secure second place, as he got the Victory Royale with five eliminations, but missed out on first because Tfue had two match victories.

Team Liquid had another player finish in the top-three as POACH’s nine points were enough for third place. POACH took home $25,000 and 115 points for the Lucky Llamas.

Seven of his nine points came in the first match, where he also activated the Big Bonus twice, earning an additional $15,000. He ended up as the only NA player to reach more than seven eliminations in a single match.

EU RECAP

Free agent competitive player Boyer used his strong eight point performance to claim the top spot in the EU half of the competition. His victory comes on the virtue of him owning the Victory Royale/eliminations tiebreaker.

Here is Boyer’s live reaction after the final standings were announced on the Fortnite broadcast:

Coming in second place, also with eight points, was ‘Tschilinken,’ who is also yet to find an organization to represent. His placing earned him $30,000 and 135 points for the Fort Knights.

He was followed in third by Ghost Gaming pro Kamo, who finished with seven points, securing $25,000 and 115 points for the Lucky Llamas. His Victory Royale in match four was critical in helping him finish in the top three.

Here are the top-20 finishers in the EU half of the tournament, along with their earned prizes and Club points.

The latest in a long line of automobile brands have entered esports, with Mazda establishing a partnership with Ukrainian organization HellRaisers.

Announced by HellRaisers on October 19, the partnership is said to be the first between a car manufacturer and an esports organization in Ukraine.

More specifically, the deal is with Mazda’s official distributor and brand importer in the nation, Auto International.

Automotive brands are nothing new in the space by now, with companies like BMW sponsoring the likes of Cloud9, G2 Esports, and Fnatic and Mercedes-Benz sponsoring League of Legends’ global esports events. However, this is the first official move into esports by Mazda — further signaling that the industry’s fan base is a prime demographic for such companies.

The partnership will see Mazda advertise through the organization’s “media activities,” which includes videos, content surrounding tournaments, and projects involving “opinion leaders of the car and esports industries.”

“Unlike the international practice, no car brand in Ukraine has ever collaborated with an esports organization,” said Tatiana Sheremet, Marketing and PR Manager of MAZDA’s official importer in Ukraine. “For a Ukrainian brand distributor, this is a unique project, and we’re very glad to see our brand become the first car partner and friend of an esports team in Ukraine.”

This deal is significant for HellRaisers after its rebrand on August 5 raised plenty of eyebrows in the community, something that the organization will have wanted to avoid. Keeping fans on board with a project is imperative to bring in sponsors and, subsequently, more money.

Other car brands that can be seen using esports as a means for marketing include Audi with Astralis Group, Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, Haval with Virtus.pro, McLaren with DragonX, and Kia with Riot Games’ LEC and Rogue.
