The H1Z1 Invitational is a frenzied kill-or-be-killed spectacle, in which every player has one goal in mind: be the last one standing. Last year at TwitchCon, the prize pool reached over $173,000 USD, awarding the winners Ninja (Game 1) and Mr. Grimmmz (Game 2) $19,932 USD each. Since H1Z1: King of the Kill is nearly as fun to watch as it is to play, the 2015 H1Z1 Invitational gathered over 140k concurrent viewers on Twitch, as well as a packed, standing-room-only on-site arena. Check out the recap video to see how it played out last year.
