Fortune’s Keep $100k Finals: Small Streamers Take the Biggest Prize

As thousands of viewers tuned into the Fortune’s Keep $100k tournament, expectations were running rampant. From the pool of teams competing, the finalists were whittled down, with sixteen of them stepping up to seek victory in the Grand Final. But, in a shocking, storming result, it wasn’t a top-tier professional organisation that took the prize, but a trio of relatively small Warzone streamers.

When the dust had settled, it was Team Envailed that stood victorious above the rest. This squad, with a collective following of fewer than 60,000 users, almost effortlessly dominated fifteen teams made up of some of the best Warzone players in the business. It was an underdog story of the ages – a tale of David vs. Goliath – and Team Envailed came away from the competition $30,000 richer.

Team Envailed Prevailed


It has been a busy off-season for Call of Duty esports. From the retro-fuelled Black Ops 2 tournament hosted by OpTic to the high-stakes Warzone competitions, there’s plenty to keep fans occupied before the Call of Duty League 2023 season kicks off in December. This was the latest in a long line of high-reward Warzone tournaments, and, as it stands, it’s probably the final event we’ll see play out on the current Warzone platform.

In little more than a month, Warzone 2 will launch, and everything will change – for better or worse, we don’t yet know.

As the Fortune’s Keep $100k Finals unfolded, it seemed as though Team Braxtvn would steal the top spot. There were eight drops in total during the Final, and Braxtvn’s team secured the win in three of them, outpacing almost every other team but failing to secure enough points to really make those wins count. From eight rounds, Team Envailed won just one drop, but on the field, the trio of Envailed, Sage, and Clamp were absolutely beaming.

Only the top eight-placed teams pick up any prize money at this tournament:

  1. Team Envailed ($30,000)
  2. Las Vegas Legion ($21,000)
  3. NYSL ($15,000)
  4. Team Ebatez ($12,000)
  5. Team FaZe Bloo ($9,000)
  6. LA Guerrillas ($6,000)
  7. Team Braxtvn ($4,000)
  8. Seattle Surge ($3,000)

What’s Next for Warzone?

At present, there’s no real information on what the next big event is in the Warzone space. We can assume that the 2023 season of the World Series of Warzone will take place, but we can’t say for sure what the format will be. It has so far seen two seasons as the most valuable Warzone tournament, but both seasons have featured dramatically different formats.

On the 17th of November, Warzone 2 will launch, dropping just weeks after Modern Warfare 2. It’ll likely change the competitive formula, bringing in a host of new features and completely revitalising the battle royale platform that we’ve known and (kind of) loved for two and a half years.

Will it be the saving grace for Warzone, which seems to have been dropping off a little as time has gone on?
