Jukeyz’ World Series Warm-Up Invitational winners announced

Jukeyz bootcamp participants

Professional Call of Duty: Warzone players Angel “Sage” Quinones, Hunter “Shifty” Pendygraft and Diaz “Biffle” have claimed the crown at Jukeyz’ and Benny’s World Series Warm-Up Invitational.

The trio secured the victory across a six-map, 150-player tournament streamed live from the Red Bull Gaming Sphere in Shoreditch, London.

The invitational marked the completion of a week-long World Series Warm-up bootcamp hosted by Red Bull Player and Call of Duty: Warzone professional Liam “Jukeyz” James, which ran from August 28th to September 1st.

Jukeyz’ World Series Warm-Up invitational tournament took place ahead of the World Series of Warzone London event, giving a glimpse towards some of the top performers ahead of the game’s largest tournament in a few weeks.

The tournament followed the same ruleset as the World Series, with the invited pro players battling through six maps with a mission to earn points based on eliminations and placement. Following the release of a new meta for Season 5 just days prior to the competition, and with a rare occurrence for the invited NA players to compete on an EU-server, the tournament promised for a day of intense play as the pro players battled across 150-player lobbies.

The tournament started out with aggressive plays from Sage, Shifty and Biffle, establishing themselves as early frontrunners. Having earned 90 points across the second and third maps, with 60 points on map two alone, the trio found themselves at the top of the leaderboard.

Patryk “Zachar” Zachar, Marcin “Rocket” Stasiak and Mateusz “M00RPHEUS” Ludwig closely followed this team, showing consistency and precision across each round and nearly surpassing them. With aggressive performance, Aaron “Lymax” Butcher, Joseph “JoeWo” Wohala and Riley “bbreadman” Barnes promoted themselves to the top position of the leaderboard, racking up an astonishing 46 points in map five.

Despite the previous map demoting them to third place, Sage, Shifty and Biffle earned 42 points at the end of the final map, reclaiming the top of the leaderboard and taking home the win.

Across the invitational, Jukeyz’ World Series Warm-Up commentators Brodie “Nfinity” Lyon and Andrew “Enigma” Champion provided insight and professional opinions into the trios’ strategies. 

The week-long bootcamp brought together some of North America and the United Kingdom’s top Warzone talent, including Liam “Jukeyz” James, Kasimili “Hisoka” Tonga Tongamoa, Benny “BennyCentral” Perkin, Thomas “Tommey” Trewren, Lennon “Lenun” Hindle and Callum “ScummN” Taylor.

Players underwent a week of streaming and training together, alongside workshops developed to help them perform under pressure both mentally and physically.
