H1Z1 Battle Royale

Because everything must be an e-sport with a cash prize, the prize pool for H1Z1's Invitational Battle Royale tournament, scheduled to take place at TwitchCon, has exceeded $150,000, according to a press release from Daybreak Game Company.

The tournament's money comes partially from the revenue generated by H1Z1 Invitational Crate Keys, 25% of which goes toward the fund. That's at least a nicer use of lockbox money than simply pocketing it all, I suppose. The tournament will features some of the most notable names on Twitch, as well as four H1Z1 community players; in total, over 50 names have been announced for the tournament, with the promise of "more to come."

The H1Z1 Invitational takes place on Sept. 26, and runs from 10:30 to 12:30 PDT. Or until the zombies eat everyone, theoretically.

So let me get this right, SoE now known as daybreak games, Copied the dayz concept (badly), then they also copied a game mode from arma3 which is Battle Royal. Dayz announced survivor games would be the official esport for bohemia interactive who owns all Arma based games. Now Daybreak are throwing money into competative esports ahead of the survivor games with what seems like decent money awarded.

Again they attempt to steal the thunder, well thankfully there game is actually pathetic. It might be ok for casuals I suppose but it really has no longevity.
