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.
