The Community Effort Orlando (CEO) tournament brings the best players in competitive gaming to play in games including Injustice 2, Tekken 7 and Super Smash Bros. But the tournament isn’t just about the games, as competitors and the crowd lightened the intensity with humor.
With all that happened during the three-day event, Bryant “Smug” Higgins takes the cake for having the majority of funny moments. In case you’ve missed it, here are some of the funniest moments that happened during this year’s tourney.
#1. Apparently, when chip damage affects the player, it affects everyone including the audience member who played along with the tossing of the chair.
#2. I’ve heard that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but you might as well call this a mirror match.
#3. To shake? or to bump? that is Smug’s question.
#4. When someone plays the soundtrack to “You Got Served” before the game.
#5. Smug knuckled up against NuckleDu. The long-awaited handshake quickly turns awkward.
#6. Sometimes in life, it’s just you and your Pikachu.
#7. Please, no flash photography… Okay, just one.
#8. Until Black Panther comes out next year, this is all we have.
#9. Nice hat, too bad it’s going on the floor.
#10. Charizard’s handshake isn’t good enough for the Smugster.
#11. And the top moment goes to pro wrestler’s Xavier Woods and Kenny Omega who become face to face for the second year in a row at CEO 2017.
