Sang-hyun ‘Jeondding’ Jeon and Jimmy ‘Jimmyjtran’ Tran were playing a game of rock-paper-scissors to decide which side they will play on ahead of their decisive losers bracket semi-finals match.

This would normally take a few seconds, but, these two players made things unexpectedly different, and somehow got caught in a continuous loop.

The rock-paper-scissors game is played in a best of three format and was almost instantly tied at 1-1, but then things took an incredibly silly turn.


Both players went for paper, then took a small pause to think, then went for paper again, and so it went on for five tries. When they finally decided to switch it up both went for scissors, and immediately erupted in laughter.

Meanwhile, the commentators were absolutely loving it and could barely keep it together after the first few ties. They even joined in and won straight away by going scissors and mocked the players as rock-paper-scissors scrubs.

After around eight tries they finally managed to close out the lengthy duel, with Jimmyjtran winning thanks to a clutch rock pick.
