We hereby like to welcome the new UK.Yin team on PS3.MW3 consisting off:
- Matt 'HammeR' Horton
- Dewi 'STYLEZ' Cornish
- Adam 'Reggin' Barsby
- Ben 'Ben' Schauerman
Their latest succes was getting 3rd at ReflexGT8 as Dorus Novum! Now they will be playing as Fariko.eXception and wish them GL at EGL5!
Up until recently eSports in the Benelux had only one fully supported LAN-team in COD on the Xbox360. But now Fariko.Yin has been transferred to Low Land Lions. This move was based on mutual trust and the reputations of the leaders of both organisations, which is the fundament of growing a community.
- Sven "AmaZyN" Riethoven
- Marko "TMKill" Grootveld
- Dennis "DNA" de Jong
- Koen "StricT" Jansen
We are proud to see Amazyn, TMKill, DNA and Strict go to a worthy organisation in eSports. LLL has been around for years now and are a reputable organisation.
We at Fariko will miss the four of them much, but also wish them all the best. They´ll be needing it when they face our next Fariko.Yin-team at ReflexGT5. :)
Without furtther ado Fariko is proud to announce to welcome the following 4 players that have joined the ranks of Fariko:
- Vincent 'DA' Pope
- Thierry 'Gimbly' Ars
- Jimmy 'Aridity' Sloeserwij
- Ryan 'RedLine' Roberts
They have an impressive record on Gears of War in general and Gears of War 1 in particular. Many LAN's have been dominated by them in the past and within Fariko they will continue the GOW-scene once more.
Watch them perform for the first time at the upcomming ECL3 event and keep an eye on their future performance! This will all be done in de spirit of Fariko and that is having a focus on selfimprovement and sharing fun, but most of all they will also focus on winnning win. :) GL!
Ok, first and foremost Fariko is a Gaming Community that consists of members and teams. To show our dedication to our teams and members, we decided to develop our team-section first. Go and checkout the Fariko Teams and Members!
Saturday, October 27th 2011 was the day that Fariko held its first Gears of War LAN. The venue was WZZRD Gamecafe in Enschede. The game mode was Annex, which caused a couple eyebrows being frowned. But it didn´t make the LAN less of a success. Everything was well planned and organised, which was the main reason the tournament ran smoothly. Also due to the help of well known world champion gamers like Laurens "Lauke" Pluijmaekers and Arthur "King Tuur" Vankan. And off course a couple of other gaming enthousiasts.
The price money was well over 2.000 euro with a grand 1st prize of 1.000 euro which was won by Quality Gaming founded by SmartieZ and lead by teamleader Ken "Experienz" Harmsen. They had shortly before become 2nd at the WCG in Seattle.
On wednesday Fariko held an afternoon of gaming in the Hospital Ede Gelderse Vallei. During this gaming workshop many patients and employers have been entertained. It was a fun filled afternoon and we look back on it with a smile. :) (referenced article: Ziekenhuis Krant ICT and Innovation, number 12)
