He was the best player out of 19 other combatants and ended up receiving $12,000 for taking the crown. Not too bad for one night of work that basically culminated in enjoying a massively popular game. Luck was definitely with Yetipocalypse.
Yetipocalypse competed against 19 other players to end up emerging victorious. This broke down to two groups of 10 initially competing to land five places in each game for what would end up as finals placement. The finals were a challenging place to be, but Yeti was cool, calm, and prepared. He ended up playing as an Impostor and as a result earned more points than he would have otherwise, which ensured he eventually bagged enough points for a win.
The second place winner, 5Up, ended up taking home $8,000 for his wins throughout the tournament. Punz and Classify snagged third and fourth place for $2,500 apiece. Participants had plenty of chances to check out some particularly good techniques. They had some pro strategies to study for the next tournament, at the very least.
