KARDS 2023 WC: Relive All the Action!

3 months ago

The 2023 World Championship is over and the KARDS World Champion is Jking7!

Jking7 seized the title for the third straight year, etching his name in history as the inaugural three-time consecutive KARDS World Champion. We send our sincerest congratulations to Jking7 on his hard-fought victory after an incredible year in KARDS esports.

The 2023 KARDS World Championship runner up is Socialist, who lost 2-4 to Jking7 in the best-of-seven final series in Iceland after an incredibly impressive performance throughout the qualifiers, the Knockout stage, and two-day grand finals broadcast. He is followed by Thanatron in third place after his impressive run in the World Championship was brought to a halt by World Champion Jking7. Leo takes fourth place, whose World Championship run ended on the first day of the grand finals broadcast after being defeated by both Jking7 and Thanatron. Each of our players proved their abilities throughout the World Championship and have each earned their share of the 12,000 USD prize pool.

We are extremely grateful to all our players participating in the World Championship! From the thousands participating in the in-game open qualifiers in September and October, to the top 128 participating in the Knockout Stage, the final 6 who battled live on stream for their spot in the grand finals, and finally the top 4 who embarked on a journey to Reykjavík, Iceland, to fight for the title live from the bunker studio.
