The inaugural “Fight 2 Fund” tournament has concluded. The tournament organised by FaZe Clan saw several streamers, FaZe Clan members, celebrities and some stars from the world of sports compete in Call of Duty: Warzone, with all proceeds going to a charity that the winning team selects.

The premise of the tournament was simple. Each team loaded into Warzone with the sole objective to score the highest number of eliminations. The team with the most kills, advanced in the single-elimination bracket. Let’s take a look at who walked away with the win.

FaZe Clan founder Temperr dropped out of the tournament after Scope defeated him in the opening round while Sidemen member Vikkstar123 and Twitch superstar, DrDisrespect both advanced into round two. DougisRaw made his way to the semi-finals of the competition before coming against the two-time, back-to-back champion, who beat him to become the first finalist of the tournament.

Vikkstar faced Josh Hart in the other semi-finals and managed to overcome his opponent to set up a clash between the Doc and arguably the best gamer within the Sidemen.

In what was a close battle between the competitors, Vikkstar and his teammates managed to score more kills than the Doc and his comrades to secure the winnings of over $90,000, donating the money to UK charity Age UK and Save The Children.

Lee Trink, CEO of FaZe Clan, had this to say on hosting the tournament: "More than ever, gaming will be a driving force of entertainment in light of the many industry shutdowns," says Lee Trink, CEO, FaZe Clan. "We can create a large amount of collective good and raise funds to support local strained organizations and charities impacted by coronavirus."

With a lack of sporting events taking place, expect more of these events to take place during the coronavirus pandemic. Online gaming and esports competitions have a real chance to provide some much-needed respite from the ongoing pandemic which looks to be lasting for the next few months at the very least.
