My thoughts on the tournament:

As an organizer and representative for Unleash the Gamer, I felt a huge responsibility for the tournament. I wanted everything to be PERFECT!! Despite the minor hiccups along the way, I think the event was a success. Tournament participants were super happy with the way the stages were organized. They also loved the prizes.

This is me by the way, the photo was taken half-way through the tournament! 🙂

The night following the event I went to bed tired, but it was a good kind of tired! 🙂

Next year we hope to organize a bigger tournament and also have casual console events for viewers (maybe some Tekken/MK or Fifa competition).

I also hope our efforts will encourage other organizers to take the leap and host tournaments for amateurs.

Here are some of our favorite images from the LAN:

Some of the Hearthstone tournament participants. They were super cool!

Darkest Dungeon – Jester Guide

The Jester, the Darkest Dungeon’s answer to the ‘Joker’, is certainly an odd duck who mixes bleed abilities with team wide buffs. However he is often a hero who finds himself with a spot on my squad. Why? His ability to target and harass the middle ranks is super useful for ignoring and bypassing front row tanks and build up some seriously dangerous bleed damage.

PC gamer since I was 7. Back then, the only way to install games was from floppy disks (if you were lucky enough to have friends) or Level Magazines. Even as an adult, my passion for gaming is still going strong. In 2016 I relinquished my casual ways and started playing a game that would define me forever: Dark Souls 1. My Twitch channel was born out of the simple desire to show one of my friends (a Soulsboune lover) how miserably I could fail at it.

Nowadays, I find happiness in single-player, story-driven games and experiences that I can share with my community. I also cosplay or create unique looks on occasion. If you want to learn more, you can follow me on TwitchTwitter, or Facebook
