H1Z1's newest $300,000 tournament will be televised

In April, you won't have to turn to Twitch to see professional teams beat the crap out of each other in H1Z1 -- you'll merely have to turn on the TV.

The next big H1Z1: King of the Kill tournament, Fight for the Crown, will be televised on The CW Network come Thursday, April 20th. Fifteen teams of pro players will engage in a single match in front of a live audience to win part of a $300,000 prize pool. There is no respawning or corpse running here; each player only will have one life to use.

Teams can go ahead and apply to be part of this tournament, although four teams have already been locked in and confirmed as participants. The TV event will actually be the finale of a five-episode docuseries that will air on CW Seed this spring.

This game is so bad. I don't understand why it's so popular.

Pretty good for a company on the verge of going belly up.

Is H1Z1 actually making enough money to justify this expense? Or are they just grasping at straws?

H1Z1 is their most popular game right now and their biggest money maker.

This is an extremely successful game, as much as it pains many of us to try to understand. If they manage to wrangle their console ports into a publicly playable state it could grow far beyond what it is even now.

I hate it too.

I imagine they are given its popularity on Steam/Twitch, though it appears that they're spending all their revenue on pointless marketing initiatives like this rather than on finishing the game.

CW, hahahahahaha.

Glad DBG is still blowing money trying to force half of H1Z1 into an esport, rather than actually finishing the bloody game. Guess they didn't learn anything form that last pile of burning money they spent trying to turn Planetside 2 into an esport.

What a complete joke of a company Daybreak has turned into.

CW? wtf.

And seriously, H1Z1 as an e-sports? Is that some sort of joke? So much luck involved.

And the game is still a bug-infested nightmare.
