Shacknews Stimulus Games 2020 - Staff Shackbattle Super Challenge 6

The Shacknews Stimulus games are here again for another round of competition and excitement.


We here at Shacknews love electronic sports. So much so, that we originally planned to host a number of esports tournaments across the United States throughout 2020. Unfortunately, 2020… went south. With no choice but to cancel all in-person events, we decided that we still wanted to host esports events this year. Thus the Shacknews Stimulus Games were born, a series of tournaments held remotely and broadcasted from our Twitch channel. Each Saturday, different groups get together and face off in various video games to determine one true winner. The latest episode of the Stimulus Games goes down today and features none other than the Shack Staff!

This isn’t the Shacknews staff’s first time facing off in the Stimulus Games. The group has gone head to head on five different occasions, with several memorable finishes throughout. The sixth installment of the Shack Staff’s Stimulus Games saga will take place today, November 14, at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET. You can catch the fun over on our official Twitch channel. If you don’t feel like leaving, you can stay and watch the event right here using the embed below.

This episode will feature three different games: Mario Kart 8, SF anniversary SF2 Hyper Fighting, and Brawlhalla. With five tournaments worth of history, there are certainly some narratives and storylines to pay attention going into today’s matches. The latest Shack Staff battle ended with an epic Rocket League match for the crown, where News Editor TJ Denzer emerged the champion. Will TJ reclaim his Brawlhalla title from Greg? There’s only one way to find out.
