Josh Next Up in Old-Schooled Season 1

Josh "Xecutioner" DavisJosh “XeCuTioNR” Davis will be taking on the Old-Schooled challenge on December 29th at 6PM. Josh is one of the top players in Old-Schooled history. Josh first participated in the old-schooled tourney with the second Tournament and has the unique honor being the winner of both “Abaddon’s Challenge” tournaments, #10 and #20, both tournaments filled with the hardest challenges in Old-Schooled history which included challenges like Ninja Gaiden stage 7-1, Death Egg Zone, and Silver Surfer the Magik Realm. He’s been thwarted by Nick Skogstad in the past and will definitely be looking to prove himself in the beginner round for a shot at defeating his nemesis.

You can come see him play live at That Game Store in person or watch him on twitch.tv at Furluge’s and That Game Store’s channels! Since this is a live event and some setup time is needed the broadcast is not scheduled to start until 6:30PM.

Nick “Rufe” Skogstad’s Beginner Trial Results

On November 30th, 2014 Nick Skogstad logged his trial for Season 1 of the Old-Schooled League at ThatGameStore when he took on the four challenges for the Beginner round. Here’s how he did.

Nick "Rufe" Skogstad 30NOV2014 3 Acts 9,220 68,800 5:32

Nick is the current favorite to win the season, but if there is anything his performance today shows it’s that everyone needs to practice. His stand out performance was in Legend of Zelda, the game he got the most practice in with a stunning time of 5:23. However a few simple mistakes in Sonic & Knuckles lead to early deaths and a stunning Game Over in the final part of Act 2 of Flying Battery Zone when he ran into pitfalls he hadn’t encountered during his warm-up.
