Twitch Rivals Warzone Season 7 Showdown – Event Info and Expectations
The upcoming Call of Duty: Warzone Season 7 Showdown will be taking place mid-December – specifically, on the 17th between 6AM PT and 10AM PT. The tournament is invite only, and streamers can sign up until the day of the event, one hour before the start.
As it is an entirely online-event, matches will all be held remotely, while the anchors of the show will be hosting from the Twitch Rivals studio. The point of the whole event is to serve as a spotlight for the streamers taking part. The event, as per usual, is for both Partner and Affiliate streamers.
The Season 7 Showdown is likely the final Twitch Rivals Warzone event of this year. We’ve had plenty of high quality showdown events this season, and we expect this final one to be the pinnacle of an exciting year for Warzone.
Twitch Rivals Warzone Season 7 Showdown Event details
A whopping 74 teams will be part of the Twitch Rivals Warzone Season 7 Showdown – overall, 148 players in Duo teams. They’ll be playing private lobbies, five games each. Duo players earn points both from their placement and from the kills they manage to get in each of the five games per round. The results are eventually ranked according to their overall points after the five games are played.
A win nets a team 5 points – to reach the top 50, 25, 15, 10 and 5 respectively nets them 3 points each, and each single kill gets them an additional single point.
In the case of a tie, the total number of victories, the average kills per game, the average placement per game, and the placement in the last game will be used as tie breakers.
The participating 148 players are competing for $75.000 in total – the first placed duo will receive $15.000, the 2nd team $8.000. the 3rd team $6.000, the 4th $5000 and so on. The lowest placed teams (41-49) still receive prize money, and will go home with $300 per Duo.
There is an additional bonus prize of $300 up for grabs as well – the hosts haven’t revealed what it will be for, yet. Likely, it will be awarded to the individual or team with the most kills, or some other sort of MVP stat.
There won’t be any tiered Grand Final or anything of the sort – since it’s a leaderboard, teams need to use their 5 games to shine whenever they can.
Season 7 will be released on December 10th, just a week before the event – that means players have very little time to prep for the event before it starts. The teams haven’t been announced yet, but registration is open – players and would-be participants can register on the Twitch website up to an hour before it starts, with players selected to participate receiving their invitation then.
Of course, EU fans are hoping fan favorites FlexZ, GaGOD, Recrent, Ubica all make a showing. Additionally, big name streamers like Nickmercs, TeePee, Nadeshot might take part in the event. So far, nobody has confirmed they would be participating for sure – in other words, we’ll have to wait and see to find out who’ll be on the rosters!
We will update this section accordingly once streamers announce their participation. Individual streams and links will be posted here as well.
