Ghost Saf and NRG Zayt take home the top prize after winning the ESL Katowice Royale Fortnite event.

The pair ran away with the event, earning an unbelievably 831 points to finish over 200 clear of second place. E11's Boyerxd and Crippa finished second with 620 points, while Katowice Solo Champion Vinny1x finished third with TSM's ZexRow.

Fan favorite team NICKMERCS and Ghost Ayden had an event to forget, finishing in 46th place. Popular teams like Liquid's 72HRS and Chaplo along with FaZe Nate and Funkbomb also struggled on the way to 38th and 39th place, respectively.

NRG Zayt provided one of the highlights of the event, confidently letting the rest of the field know who was going to win. In round 14, Zayt jumped to the top of a build and did the "Hold the L" emote, taunting  the remaining players.

As far as a game play highlight goes, Zayt offered that as well. With two teams left in a closing circle, Zayt pulled out a Rift for a 3,000 IQ play that locked up the Victory Royale.
