At CEO 2024, a Mortal Kombat 1 player named Dyloch celebrated his victory by throwing a chair, accidentally breaking a $3,000 light. Despite winning $565 in prize money, the cost of the light far exceeded his earnings. The incident led tournament organizer Alex Jebailey to warn players against throwing objects, hinting at potential bans for future violations.

It's still uncertain who will cover the costs; options include the player himself, Dyloch's sponsor, or insurance for the light.

Mortal Kombat 1, developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Games, continues the long-running and widely popular Mortal Kombat series. Known for its intense combat and finishing moves called "fatalities," the franchise has a passionate global fanbase and hosts numerous competitive tournaments. The incident at CEO 2024 demonstrates the high emotions and excitement that often accompany esports events.

Man, that chair toss was wild, but it just shows how hype these tournaments can get. Hopefully, next time the excitement leads to more epic matches and less broken gear.
