Echo Fox’s Radek Pozler and Team eLevate’s Reed “inboxes” Outlast Twitch’s Biggest Streamers to Become the 2016 Invitational Champions of H1Z1®: King of the Kill®

SAN DIEGO – Oct. 3, 2016 Daybreak Games’ second annual H1Z1 Invitational, featuring the massively multiplayer survival shooter H1Z1®: King of the Kill®, came to a heart-pounding finale yesterday at TwitchCon 2016, a massive event put on by Twitch, the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers. In addition to a packed, standing-room only live audience, more than 118,000 concurrent viewers tuned in to watch two gripping matches of kill-or-be-killed action in King of the Kill. Many of Twitch’s biggest stars, including Summit1g, LIRIK and GoldGlove, as well as the first official H1Z1: King of the Kill esports team, assembled by Echo Fox, competed live for the ultimate bragging rights and a prize pool totaling  $267,244.


In game one when the green gas had settled and the last shots fired, Echo Fox top player, Radek, who hails from the Czech Republic and is known to be one of the most aggressive players in King of the Kill, defeated eLevate’s inboxes to claim the Crown. He took home just over $40,000 with the game one win. In game two, it was inboxes that took the final shot, earning more than $66,800 between the two games. Inboxes calls Orange County home and is consistently at the top of the North American leaderboards.  


The remainder of the $267,244 prize pool was shared between the other top 10 players from each round based on finishing placement, which included streamers Trick2g, OPscT, GassyMexican, SeaNanners, and Echo Fox’s Mohamad “mOE” Assad. For all match stats, visit:


Funding for the H1Z1 Invitational prize pool was generated by a portion of sales from the 2016 H1Z1 Invitational Crate, which included in-game skins with designs inspired and influenced by some of the top competitors.
