TwitchCon's H1Z1 Invitational wrapped up this past weekend after three days of action and drama. At least one European player has made the Top 5 in each of the three tournaments. More H1Z1 tournament games coming in December 2017.

TwitchCon's premier esport event H1Z1 Invitational wrapped up this past weekend after three straight days of action and drama. The event had a combined prize pool of $500,000 (£378,350). This was H1Z1's biggest Invitational yet as it included three tournaments: one featured the All-Stars of streaming and content creation; one brought together some of the world’s greatest H1Z1 Legends; and a third showdown was reserved for TwitchCon Challengers competing against one another.

At least one European player has made the Top 5 in each of the three tournaments. This means that the overall prize pot that made it across the pond was more than $160,000 (£121,129).

The All-Stars tournament saw Leh from Poland take the second place, while TrilluXe from Germany shot his way into the Top 5 as well. UK streamer RizaaR was crowned the winner of the Legends bracket of the tournament, which features a variety of esports-veterans and professional players.

Over 214,000 concurrent viewers tuned in to watch 75 of the top gaming personalities like Vikstarr123 and Zerkaa in the All-Stars Invitational, making the H1Z1 Invitational TwitchCon’s one of the most-watched events for the third year running.
