Sophomore claims victory at UF StarCraft II LAN

StarCraft II LAN
As shafts of light from the setting sun began to creep into room 110 of Rinker Hall on Nov. 6, 35 students were clashing for dominance on the alien battlefields of StarCraft II.

The event was Gator Gaming’s first member-organized LAN, which president Kyle Kirwin saw as more than a singular event but rather a new direction for the club.

“We expected it to be pretty high quality, and it has been,” Kirwan said. “We’ll definitely plan more things like this in the future — it’s kind of what we want the club to evolve into.”

Fangzhou Hou, the team captain of UF’s StarCraft team, started the tournament off with a bang by holding the weekly C StarLeague match at the beginning of the event, which is a national league of schools who play one another in StarCraft. The matches were shown on the projector as UF played Florida State University’s team and won with a score of 3 to 0.

After the match with FSU was over, the tournament lasted about five hours. Paul Lodger, an industrial engineering sophomore, took the first place prize of Global StarCraft League season three tickets, which will allow him to watch all of the matches from the third season online.

Lodger, who lost only one match at the tournament, said it was great to win, but the truly enjoyable part of the night was seeing friends and playing with people in person.

“It was really fun seeing the people behind the games and getting a chance to play that way,” Lodger said. “I actually met some kids that I know that I didn’t even know they played, so it was cool.”
