The FIWC has done it again. This time smashing its own Guinness World Record (picked up last year) becoming the largest Computer Games Tournament in the world. A massive FIFASoccerBlog congratulations to everyone who’s been involved in the planning and organising of the FIWC 2011, in all honesty it was the most competitive FIWC tournament we’ve ever seen and well deserved of this recognition.
It’s broken its own World Record by some margin too. FIWC 2010 waltzed in to the record books with an eye watering 775,000 participants, which has now been easily topped by FIWC 2011’s astonishing 869,543 entrants, wow. With this years pre-registering for the FIWC 2011 at an all time high it was “rumoured” very early on that the tournament would go on to break its own World Record, but still a fantastic achievement none the less.
“The Guinness World Records – Gamer’s Edition is packed with extraordinary feats from the field of computer gaming, and we’re proud to count the FIWC among them.”
This does however leave us with two very big questions. Can the FIWC break the one million barrier next year? And when will an equivalent competition come to the Xbox360?
