Old School RuneScape player, ‘5PLUS50K12’ has claimed victory at the Deadman Autumn Invitational, securing the top prize of $20,000. A further $10,000 was won by #TeamLUL, which will be donated to the team’s chosen charity, Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Held during RuneFest 2017 at Battersea Evolution in London this past Saturday (23rd September), the final was the culmination of three months of vicious, PvP action in Old School RuneScape. Thousands of players took part in the Invitational, before being whittled down to the last player standing.
Ten finalists, including popular players B0aty, Faux, and MMORPGrs took part live on the main stage at RuneFest in front of an entranced crowd. Hundreds of thousands of people also watched online via RuneScape’s Twitch channel.
“Congratulations to ‘5PLUS50K12’ on their triumph, it was a great battle and they are a well-deserved victor,” said Mathew Kemp, Senior Product Manager, Old School RuneScape. “The Deadman Invitationals have continued to experience greater and greater success in the competitive gaming scene since they launched nearly two years ago, and the Autumn Invitational was no different. Holding the final at RuneFest in front of many hundreds of people created a visceral atmosphere of tension and excitement.”
Not only that but there was a ton of new content added for fans to drool over. Check out all the details below:
