When a local community starts, it normally hosts some weeklies, boldly tries to host a regional, or just does it humbly with a group of friends playing in a house. Not many communities get blessings like Freehold, New Jersey.
Recently, a player under the name of Poopems started a streaming service called Master Hand Gaming.
“What do we mean by ‘streaming service’?” you may be asking. Well, the guys at MHG go from tourney to tourney volunteering to stream local tourneys. They provide the equipment, the platform, and the channel, all for the simple reason to highlight small tourneys and the whole Freehold community.
Poopems is currently working with Conti, whom he helped get equipment for the streaming service. Poopems is also currently working onhis own streamer’s desktop for top quality streams. Currently, MHG is looking forward to getting their own sub button as an initial goal for growing bigger.
In the words of Poopems himself, MHG’s goal is “to cover local gaming scenes and give gamers of all levels a platform to grow themselves and grow with a community of people just like them, people who enjoy video games as a medium for expressing themselves, socializing, and living”.
Currently, MHG is helping four tournament series across the New Jersey area: Ocean County Smash (which Conti runs), Coastal Waveshine Series, F-Air Game Series, and The Cell Games Weekly.
Master Hand Gaming, beyond being just some people who want to help, are actually TOs who are collaborating between each other, with Poopems being the one that unifies and coordinates their efforts towards spotlighting scenes. These TOs include OcS Conti, ECG Suzu, JS Singleserved, and LLDL, formerly known as Chain-Ace.
This collaboration goes beyond just spotlighting; in fact, they are currently working on an MHG tournament series called Game Changer, which is aiming to become a regional - and, at some point, national-level tournament series.
