Started out a little bit later than anticipated but ya boy Zalgo Cometh was there to save the day with the stream setup and configuration. Ran into some overlay issues but after a bit of miracle working the stream was up, so the stream watchers were not disappointed and managed to catch one of the days main teams Perma Frass in action. If you are a fan of League of Legends or curious to see how these gamers get down you should definitely check out the stream archive first hand:

With that series victory under their belt in a convincing 2-0 victory Perma Frass continued on throughout the tournament dominating all comers. It seemed from the get go that this tournament was theirs for the taking but from the shadows emerged a team that was not going to allow Perma Frass to take all the adoration and cheers from the fans. Enter Get Rekt M5 the team that would mirror and rival the performance of Perma Frass with their own level of domination that had fans on stream begging and pleading for the organizers to end the slaughter. Viewer discretion is advised people be warned:

When the dust settled for the grand finals the two massive contenders stood face to face on the field of battle. As everyone expected it came down to Get Rekt M5 vs Perma Frass in the grand finals of the Ryze Up Jamaica competition. Trust me when I say it was a grueling battle that was drawn out to the very end in the best of 3 series as neither competitor was willing to go down without a fight. I must have left the venue around 12:00 am Monday morning needless to say I am sleep deprived and just running off hype but without a doubt it was all well worth it. Don’t want to spoil it for anyone but check out the tournament bracket on the Swallowtail Sports Website. Definitely keep an eye out for the Swallowtail Sports Team and Jamaica G.A.M.E.S. going into 2015 as there will be more to come.
