WHAT DO THEY WIN?
Razer is also providing all the high-tech, top-notch peripherals for the tournament computers. You can read about the prize packs and the peripherals in this article.
As for the cash, the progressive prize pool – which includes 25% of the H1Z1 Invitational Crate Key sales – will be divided up between the top ten winners in each game (the H1Z1 Invitational is two separate Battle Royale matches). To see how much each place takes away, read this article or visit www.h1z1.com/invitational
But that’s STILL not all! Members of the H1Z1 Dev team wanted to contribute to the prizing as well. Check out this Dev Blog by Senior Artist Jeff Jonas about the “Trophy to (Not) Die For” (since it only goes to the first place winners, and you have to NOT die if you want to win it!) as well as the plaques by Technical Architect Greg Spence that will be given to 1st-10th place in each round.
THIS IS BATTLE ROYALE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.
