Valorant seems tailor-made for esports and one of the first major tournaments following its release from beta was the Twitch Rivals: Launch Showdown.

The European and North American regions came into the Showdown featuring big esports names like Jonathan ‘EliGE’ Jablonowski, Lucas ‘Mendo’ Hakansson, Jay ‘sinatraa’ Won, and much more, alongside streamers like Lisa ‘STPeach’ Vannatta, Jake ‘JakeNBake’ Abramson, and Gotaga, to name a few.

For a further breakdown of each team in the tournament before we get to the final results, you can reference our Valorant Launch Showdown Hub for the full list of esports pros and streamers that faced off over the weekend.

Europe 1 Final Placements

In EU Group 1, Team Mixwell absolutely dominated the bracket, winning six out of six matches to fly through the playoffs taking a convincing first place.

This winning squad was made up of pros from the EU Counter-Strike scene who are dipping their toes into Valorant, inclduing William ‘draken’ Sundin, Ardis ‘ardiis’ Svarenieks, and of course Oscar ‘mixwell’ Cañellas Colocho.

Team W/L Earnings
1. Team Mixwell 6-0 $12,250
2. Team ONSCREEN 5-1 $7,250
3. Team bonkar 4-1 $4,750
4. Team Lutti 3-2 $4,250
5. Team Mickalow 3-1 $3,500
6. Team Valkia 2-2 $3,000
6. Team Solaaaa 2-2 $3,000
6. Team Skyyart 2-2 $3,000

Europe 2 Final Placements

Over in the other European bracket, it was Team Duno that took first place. Featuring Kazakh CSGO pro Dmitriy ‘dimasick’ Matvienko, and Ukranian Counter-Strike turned Valorant player Vladyslav ‘arch’ Svistov. The team kept a low profile until the playoffs, where they too blitzed through with six wins and no losses.

CS:GO is wildly popular in Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan, and while it might be too early to tell just yet, it seems Valorant and its similar playstyle is having no problem catching on and making waves in these nations either.

Team W/L Earnings
1. Team Duno 6-0 $12,250
2. Team wtcN 5-1 $7,250
3. Team Izak 3-2 $4,250
3. Team gdolphnn 3-2 $4,250
5. Team Nookyyy 3-1 $3,500
5. Team Exileshow 3-1 $3,500
6. Team Lothar 2-2 $3,000
6. Team Orb 2-2 $3,000

North America Final Placements

In North America, Team Brax (T1) managed to eke out a win against Team Myth (TSM). While Brax’s squad convincingly took home Bind 13-7 on map one, Myth’s team brought it back on Haven with a solid defence half to force a map three.

However, back on Bind, Team Brax proved to be too hard to deal with. While Team Myth put up more of a fight, it wasn’t enough to dislodge one of NA Valorant’s most formidable rosters, as they took home the final map 13-10.

Team W/L Earnings
1. Team Brax 5-0 $10,250
2. Team Myth 4-1 $7,250

Black Ops Cold War may have only just launched but major competitions are already underway as some of the biggest names in Call of Duty joined up for a huge $50,000 Twitch Rivals showdown.

Twitch Rivals hosts some of the biggest online esports events out there. Gathering a mix of marquee streamers on the platform and some of the top pro players, they’re always huge events.

The latest installment put CoD in the spotlight thanks to the release of Black Ops Cold War. As players grow familiar with maps, modes, and weapons, some of the best competitors jumped right into tournament play.

From Nadeshot to 2020 World Champion Clayster and plenty more, many of the biggest names were involved. If you missed any of the action, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown on the latest Twitch Rivals event.

Black Ops Cold War Twitch Rivals results

Once teams were drafted, it was time for the unique event to properly get underway. Divided into four sections, every squad had to play through two series across a variety of modes. Hardpoint, VIP Escort, Domination, and SnD were all in focus.

Opening rounds were simple best of ones, though the playoffs saw teams competing over a possible three maps. Some were more lopsided than others. Clayster blitzed through former partners on Simp’s team when it came to Hardpoint. Meanwhile, the opposite occurred when things switched to Domination, as Simp’s team won that portion without dropping a map.

It was a closely contested event right until the very end. Clayster, Simp, and Scump all led their teams to a single playlist win. It came down to SnD where Scump’s team took home the final remaining victory. 

How to rewatch Black Ops Cold War Twitch Rivals

The Cold War Twitch Rivals event took place on Monday, November 23 for North American talent. Things kicked off at 3PM PT | 6PM ET and ran through most of the evening.

While individual players were streaming their own perspectives, a dedicated broadcast was hosted by CDL talent Miles Ross, Thomas ‘Chance’ Ashworth, and Lottie Van-Praag. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience.

Black Ops Cold War Twitch Rivals Format

This particular event followed a unique format. At first, four captains selected their teammates from a pool of pro players and popular streamers. Once rosters were locked in, there were four unique brackets to play through, one for each mode.

Hardpoint, VIP Escort, Domination, and SnD were the four single-elimination brackets on offer today. Placing well within each bracket awarded a set number of points. The team with the highest number of points at the end of the day was eventually crowned the winner. A full point breakdown along with the final prizing can be found below.
