The third Stoned Gamer Tournament of the 2017 Season was held at Hitman Coffee Shop, an incredible venue with equally incredibly glass art on display like a museum. For this tournament we teamed up with our long-time partners The Herbsmith to hold an incredible night filled with an intense Stoned Gamer Tournament, followed by an exquiste six-course meal crafted by a culinary artist from The Herbsmith.
This was the final Stoned Gamer Tournament of the first quarter of the season (Group A), so competitors were eager to show off their stoned Street Fighter 2 expertise.
Since this was the final tournament of the quarter, the championship prize had to be a strong one. Fortunately our partners at D-Nail manifested a simply legendary prize kit.
The summer is finally here in California, so our partners at Molly Water came through with an array of their tasty akalaine water for all Stoned Gamers to hydrate themselves.
Once all elements were set up, the Stoned Gamer Tournament began with an absolute smash.
At the end of the night we were left with the Final Four. Brentt is Cool, a returning 2017 Stoned Gamer. Hitman Dougie, a Stoned Gamer rookie. Sick With It, another returning Stoned Gamer. Last but not least, TekNyq, returning Stoned Gamer. First up we saw Hitman Dougie go up against Sick With It.
In a best of three contest, Sick With It took the victory in a 2-0 series and advanced to the Championship match. Next up was Brentt is Cool versus TekNyq.
The battle was tremendous, but it was TekNyq that took it home in a 2-0 sweep. The champonship battle for the Third Qualifying Stoned Gamer Tournament of the Season was set: TekNyq versus Sick With It.
Just like his brother ISupply420, the champion of the Second Qualifier, TekNyq viciously grabbed victory in a 2-1 series and became the champion of the Third Stoned Gamer Qualifier of the season, and wrapped up the end of Group A.
With that, we are finished with the first quarter of the 2017 Stoned Gamer Tournament Season. See you in July -- now here are some bonus photos to satisfy all you Stoned Gamers out there.
