Growing up with everything from an Atari 2600 all the way to owning all 3 major platforms of XBox, Playstation, and Nintendo has this fighter hooked on gaming. James would go on to be in early promos for old school "Tekken 2" and the iconic video game brand of "Mortal Kombat's" tv show of Conquest as Master Leel.
While focusing on fighting and film James would have a hiatus on playing video games but would later be reconnected to gaming through his Autistic son. "My son loves video games and it has been a great way for a father and son to connect. He loves gaming so I wanted to create something to support his passions and interests as well as bring awareness to Autism."

General Tournament Questions
What does Double Elimination Mean?
A double-elimination tournament is a type of elimination tournament competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament's championship upon having lost two games or matches. It stands in contrast to a single-elimination tournament, in which only one defeat results in elimination.
A double-elimination tournament is broken into two sets of brackets, the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket (W and L Brackets for short; also sometimes Upper Bracket and Lower Bracket, respectively). After the first round, the winners proceed into the W Bracket and the losers proceed into the L Bracket. The W Bracket is conducted in the same manner as a single-elimination tournament, except of course that the losers of each round "drop down" into the L Bracket.
What does BYOC mean?
BYOC stands for "Bring your Own Controller".
