Daybreak Games Crowns H1Z1 Invitational Winners


SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 28, 2015 – Daybreak Games has declared Twitch personalities Ninja and MrGrimmmz as the victors of its first-ever H1Z1 Invitational at TwitchCon this weekend. The two champions received $19,932 apiece, with the rest of the $173,320 overall prize pool distributed incrementally between the remaining top 10 finishers.

Tyler Blevins aka Ninja – a former Halo world champion – hails from Illinois and has been streaming games on Twitch for about three years, boasting over 100,000 followers. MrGrimmmz, from California, had logged more H1Z1 Battle Royale matches than any of the other participants in the last few months, with his viewers having watched him play more than 20,000 minutes of H1Z1.

The H1Z1 Invitational consisted of two standard Battle Royale matches, with half of the prize money split among the top 10 finishers of game one and the other half divided among the top 10 finishers of game two. With no repeats in the top 10, Ninja and MrGrimmmz faced different opponents in the final fight – Ninja overcame well-known League of Legends broadcaster Trick2g while MrGrimmmz won an exciting shotgun shootout with JoshOG. The H1Z1 Invitational was MrGrimmmz’s first tournament and Ninja’s first PC tournament.

The H1Z1 Invitational pitted more than 55 of Twitch’s most popular broadcasters, including LIRIK, Sodapoppin, summit1g, LegendaryLea, and Towelliee, against one another in PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battle Royale, the nail-biting last-man-standing mode found in the zombie survival game H1Z1. They were joined by four players chosen from the H1Z1 community through Daybreak’s Road to TwitchCon competition. One player also earned a seat in the Invitational on-site, winning the Qualification Championship Battle Royale the day before the tournament.

The vast majority of the prize pool was fueled by community purchases of the H1Z1 Invitational Crate Key, which offered players exclusive in-game emotes, skins and more. Over 140,000 concurrent viewers tuned in to Twitch to watch the triumph and heartbreak of the H1Z1 Invitational unfold live.
