GEEX 2011 TrackMania Canyon Tournament 10th Anniversary



Attention all TrackManiacs!  The Friday Night Gamers (Team FNG) are proud to announce the 10th Anniversary of the first LAN tournament after the release of TrackMania 2 Canyon on the ManiaPlanet platform.  On 14 Oct 2011, Ubisoft in partnership with Intel, sponsored a TM2 Canyon tournament hosted by the Friday Night Gamers at the Gamers and Electronics Expo (GEEX) in Sandy, Utah at the South Towne Expo Center.

It was an incredible collaborative project involving many of the top map builders of the day, Nadeo, Ubisoft, Intel, the Friday Night Gamers and the awesome finalists who competed in the local live tournament.

We invite all to join us for a trip down memory lane as we play the 10 final maps on the:
Team FNG - Canyon: GEEX 10th Anniversary server in TrackMania 2 Canyon on:

This will be a "for-fun" tournament and will be tracked using the TournaMania software I built for the original GEEX tournaments.  Our server is set to hold 80 players and we hope you will help us fill it up.

We look forward to reliving the excitement of the original GEEX tournament and enjoying some legendary classic maps built by the amazing TrackMania community.

The new TrackMania is here!

Today is the day!  Ubisoft Nadeo has officially released their next installment in the wonderful Trackmania series.

It is a fresh new take on the popular Stadium environment, and has some incredible new blocks, physics tweaks and extras to make it thoroughly enjoyable.  The ice is crazy fun to play around on, and the reactor boosts are a hoot.

This version of the game is subscription-based with three different offerings, Starter (free), Standard ($9.99 USD/year) and Club ($29.99 USD / 1-year; $59.99 USD / 3-year).

There are different limitations on the lower tier of subscription, such as not being able to share your custom skins with other online players, or creating clubs and running dedicated servers.  Find out more on the official Trackmania website.

The game is available on Uplay and the Epic Games store.

The Friday Night Gamers are excited to play with you!  Join us in our Friday Night Gamers club server "Team FNG - Utah"

And I would like to send a special thank you to the fine team at Nadeo!  They allowed me the honor of helping them as an Alpha Tester for this game, and were kind enough to include all the alpha testers' names in the credits!

It's been a fun ride, literally.  Can't wait for the good times awaiting us in this new game!
