Battlegrounds returns to Twitch Rivals. Check out what happened in this streamers-only event with some of the best BG players out there.

Battlegrounds fans were excited to see Twitch Rivals supporting a new series of events: Battlegrounds Bash. Slysssa ran the first of two Twitch Rivals events in which streamers clashed for $1,000.

Jkirek was able to dominate the final lobby against an incredibly tough field. Let's go over what happened at the event.

Slysssa's Battlegrounds Bash Twitch Rivals recap

This Battlegrounds Twitch Rivals event took place on Friday. The tournament was open for Twitch Partners and Affiliates and, despite only having $1,000 in prizes, the whole Battlegrounds scene participated in it.

Every Twitch Rivals participant had to stream their point of view, filling the day with hours of Battlegrounds content. The 64 players were divided into 8 lobbies with the 4 four of each lobby, after 2 or 3 games advancing to the next stage until the final Top 8 emerged.

The finals

After a long day of competition, Slysssa's Battlegrounds Bash Twitch Rivals event had only 8 contestants for the much-desired crown. These names were top-tier players with many having presences in the Battlegrounds Lobby Legends circuit.

With such a stacked field, fans expected these Battlegrounds Bash finals to be a close race. However, Jkirek hit hard and hit twice. He won the first two lobbies securing 20 points and cruised the third one to become the champion.

The tough fight was for second place, in which Rdu, Zorgo and Educated Collins tied with 18 points each. After tiebreakers, the final lobby results were the following.
