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.”
The crowd cheered as Spain scored against Madrid, and again as Arsenal scored over Chelsea. With six simultaneous soccer games, the action at the Orange & Brew on Wednesday night was nonstop during the “FIFA 11” tournament.
Dust off your keyboards, brush up on your hotkeys and grab your game pads — it’s time for another round of videogame tournaments at the University of Florida.

A “Shaun White Skateboarding” tournament will be held at Lakeside Residential Complex at the University of Florida on Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.
Jay Uy, UF’s Ubisoft campus representative, said that he’ll be holding a highest score competition for “Shaun White Skateboarding,” and the winner will receive a copy of the game.
