Welcome back esports fanatics! August 22, 2020 at My Game Room in Detroit, Team Max@Play hosted the first Mortal Kombat themed Rumble Pit tournament. This event brought the metro areas best and put their skills to the test.
My Game Room
The venue, located on Detroit’s westside features 10 screens and your choice of XBox One or PS4 for each one. They offered controllers, headsets and high end gaming chairs. Its the perfect place for a party, but an even better place for a tournament.
Each competitor paid an entrance fee of $25 either online or at the venue. This contest had no second or consolation prize, only the clear uncut winner received the goods. On the line was $500 provided by Max@Play, an amazing trophy provided by My Game Room and of course the ability to say I am the best in the Detroit Metro Area.
As combatants settled in you can read the energy in the room. There were your crew players, a few boisterous cocky players and the ones who came in and said absolutely nothing.This was a kid friendly environment, but there were no children competing, only warriors. The first round of brackets humbled a few of them and the following had a couple wishing they had took this more seriously from jump. One of the shining stars was “JDub A Goat” who went undefeated all the way into the finals. The second was “XRMex” who had an amazing climb out of the losers bracket back into the finals.
Midway through the losers bracket the tournament suffered a couple dropouts. This resulted in “XRMex” competing in 2 back to back matches that his secured victories placed him in the final match against “JDub Ah Goat”. In the finals it was still double elimination rules and it was the best of 5 instead of 3 during previous matches. These 2 pulled no punches. They answered each others win with another one until we were in the 5th round. This round was so intense but “XRMex” pulled out the victory. As he began to celebrate he noticed the room was confused. He had celebrated too soon and forgot this was double elimination with an undefeated opponent, there’s one more match.”XRMex” requested a short break to gather his bearings. Once he returned, “XRMex” swept the finals with 3 straight wins and secured the official victory over the entire Rumble Pit Tournament.
