The first half of the ESL Katowice Royale Fortnite event has come to a close with Team SoloMid pro player Vinny ‘Vinny1x’ Gilgan taking home first place.

Vinny’s 319 points were good enough to secure the top spot on the leaderboard, just three points higher than the 316 that Team Atlantis’ Max ‘Magin’ Merrien got to earn second.

The top three was rounded off by Team Solary superstar Huynh ‘Kinstaar’ Duong Huynh, who finished with 269 points. 

If you are not familiar with the format used at ESL Katowice Royale, make sure to brush up on the scoring system below before continuing on with the rest of the recap. 

Total Matches: 7
Each Elimination
: 5 Points

Victory Royale: 65 Points
2nd Place: 58 Points
3rd Place: 56 Points
4th Place: 54 Points
5th Place: 52 Points

50th Place: 1 Point

Having just won the Solos tournament at the Secret Skirmish, it came no surprise that Ghost Gaming’s Bizzle snatched the Victory Royale in the first match of the day.

However, that was not good enough to grab the top spot, as LeStream Esport pro player Skite grabbed an early lead with an impressive 93 points.

Kinstaar’s bid to eventually finish third was spurred on by his tremendous Victory Royale in game two, which helped him grab first place with 141 points. 

Bizzle held onto second place after the second match, with round one leader Skite dropping down all the way to sixth. 

The third match saw GamersOrigin pro Julez grab the Victory Royale to grab second place, but Kinstaar’s impressive display of eliminations and placement helped him retain the top spot with 163 points. 

Things began to get serious as the halfway mark of the tournament was passed, and it was at this point when eventual champion Vinny1x put on an impressive showing to bring his points total to 201, good for first place.

He did not get the Victory Royale in match four, however, as the game was won by South Korean pro player AimHero_o, who also had four eliminations.

Match five saw Bizzle put on an impressive showing to climb to the top spot at 233 points. With the Victory Royale having gone to pro player Skram, there was a massive shakeup at the top of the leaderboard that saw a lot of new names in the top five. 

With the tournament having very much reached its business end, Magin and Vinny1x did just enough to solidify their presence in the top three, while the Victory Royale itself went to LeStream pro TheVic.

With still all to play for in the seventh and final match, Team Sentinel’s Animal grabbed the Victory Royale to secure his position in the top 10, while Kinstaar outperformed Bizzle just enough to replace him as the final player in the top three. 

With the Solos tournament now having reached its end, here are the full final standings, including total points earned and prize claim.

LIVE: LCS Lock In 2021 Day 1: 100 Thieves, Liquid start on top

Published: 15/Jan/2021 23:00 Updated: 16/Jan/2021 0:48

by Andrew Amos


The LCS has kicked off 2021 not with the Spring Split, but with a new tournament called Lock In. Similar to the KeSPA Cup or Demacia Cup, NA’s top teams will duke it out in a pre-season event right before the main season. Here’s what you need to know.

  • 100 Thieves smash TSM to open up their 2021 campaign at LCS Lock In.
  • Liquid do the same against CLG to sit atop Group A.
  • Cloud9 and Evil Geniuses kick off Group B next at 5pm PT / 8pm ET.

LCS Lock In: Stream

The LCS Lock In tournament is the 2021 starter for League of Legends in North America. All 10 LCS teams will take part in the two-week competition that gives fans a taster of the year to come.

They’re not playing for pittance either. The winning team will take home $150,000 USD, and a lot of confidence heading into the start of Spring 2021 in February.

LCS Lock In 2021: Teams & groups

As we mentioned earlier, all 10 of the LCS teams will be taking part in the Lock In tournament. Some teams may choose to field their academy rosters instead of their main rosters, but with $150,000 on the line, there’ll definitely be some teams gunning for the flag.

Among them, Summer 2020 champions TSM would be favorites. Having made a number of moves in the off-season, only keeping jungler Mingyi ‘Spica’ Lu, the new squad will have a hard task in front of them. Team Liquid, CLG, and Cloud9 also made some big moves in the off-season to catch back up.

The 10 teams will be split into groups of two, with the top four from each group making it to the single-elimination playoffs.

Group A Group B
TSM FlyQuest
100 Thieves Cloud9
CLG Dignitas
Golden Guardians Evil Geniuses
Team Liquid Immortals
