Guild Esports sign UK Warzone players ahead of Esports World Cup

UK Warzone players

UK esports organisation Guild Esports have announced their entry into Call of Duty: Warzone with the signing of three players, including UK talent.

Guild’s Warzone team is captained by UK player WarsZ, who is regarded in the professional circuit as among the best players in the world. He is 14th on the all-time prize-money winnings list for Warzone.

WarsZ captained his team to a fifth-place finish in the World Series of Warzone 2023, finishing as the highest-ranked EU team. He has received a direct invitation to compete in the EWC alongside two teammates: UK player KINGAJ and Dutch player iVisionSR, as well as UK coach BubbleCT.

KINGAJ was WarsZ’s teammate for their performance at the World Series in 2023, and iVisionSR won the Stage 1 Finals of the same tournament. The players are regular teammates, last competing as a team in December 2023. The team has been signed for the duration of the EWC, with the option to extend following a strong performance at the tournament.

Additionally, WarsZ is a popular streamer and content creator with a significant online following, which Guild says will grow their audience as he competes at the EWC. He has more than 250,000 followers across TikTok, Twitch, X (formerly Twitter) and YouTube.

This new Warzone team will compete at the Esports World Cup (EWC) under the Guild banner. This is Guild’s fourth event at the EWC, alongside Guild’s Apex Legends, ESL R1 and Street Fighter players.

Warzone counts towards the Esports World Cup Club Championship, the EWC’s cross-game competition offering the best teams a share of a $20m prize pool.

“I’m delighted to welcome WarsZ, KINGAJ and iVisionSR to Guild, as we continue to strengthen our presence at the Esports World Cup. Our entry into Warzone will lead to more Club Championship points and a greater shot at its $20m prize pool.”

Call of Duty: Warzone is a multiplayer first-person shooter, in which players parachute into a continuously shrinking map and battle it out to be the last player or team standing.

Jasmine Skee, Chief Executive Officer at Guild Esports, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome WarsZ, KINGAJ and iVisionSR to Guild, as we continue to strengthen our presence at the Esports World Cup. Our entry into Warzone will lead to more Club Championship points and a greater shot at its $20m prize pool.

“Call of Duty is an iconic esport and the EWC is the perfect opportunity to enter the space for the first time. These are brilliant players with strong tournament placings under their belts already and they are keen to hit the ground running in Riyadh – we can’t wait for the tournament to begin.”
