Yesterday we held the Grand Final match for the 2018 US Tak Open. The top two players, NohatCoder and fwwwwibib, faced off in the championship match and showed us both incredible speed and skill across two games.
In the end NohatCoder emerged victorious and is our new Tak Champion! NohatCoder has been a dominant player throughout the entire season and has definitely earned this title. He will receive the amazing Purpleheart Tak Box set sponsored by Wyrmwood Gaming as first place prize. Congratulations Nohat!
Fwwwwibib came in second place and Archvenison took third place. Each of them receive a beautiful hand-crafted leather board courtesy of Andrew Cookson as prizes. The final rankings for the remaining five players who entered the finals bracket are as follows (ties broken by player rating at time of bracket seeding):
That wraps up the official 2018 season for the US Tak Association. We are incredibly thankful to our sponsors for their support, the players for all the great games and their cooperation, the staff and volunteers for their hard work to make this season possible, and of course to the viewers and fans of Tak for following our events and making this an amazing community.
Events for 2019 are in the works and we are hoping to announce more information soon. Until then, we are excited for our tournament event coming up on the Saturday of PAX Unplugged in just over two weeks! The tournament is free to enter, but preregistration is required at 9am that day. If you’ll be attending or are in the area we would love to see you there.
