ImageComputerbild Spiele, the biggest gaming magazine in Europe, have found Germany's best gamer during Gamescom 2011. He is none other than an SK Gaming fellow!

Deutschlands bester Gamer (english: Germany's best Gamer) is the first big competition where players have to show their skills in many different games in order to win an impressive title and notable prizes. From May to July four Fifa 11, four Halo: Reach and four Need for Speed: Shift 2 players were able to qualify themselves for the Grand Final at Gamescom 2011 in Cologne.
In the end it was our legendary racing player Danny 'HuskY' Engels who came out on top and is now known as Germany's best gamer. Definitely a very special moment for Danny, because he has announced right before his first match at Gamescom that he is to retire from active eSports in early 2012. "This is going to be my last offline event and I just want to have fun" were his words on Thursday morning.

On Thursday the best gamers for each separate game were decided in classic single elimination tournaments. Sascha "poldi10" Schumacher (EPS player from Team Acer) became Germany's best Fifa player. sG's Sunrise Germany's best Halo player and SK Gaming's Danny 'HuskY' Engels Germany's best Need for Speed player. And those three were facing each other in an exciting Grand Final on Friday.

In the first match on Friday Danny 'HuskY' Engels has managed to beat David "Sunrise" Kohl 5:1 in Fifa 11. With the perfect name for a racing game Sascha "poldi10" Schumacher stood up to Sunrise in Need for Speed: Shift 2. At that point a brilliant Halo player named sG Sunrise was out of the tournament in third place. Halo: Reach was the deciding game between HuskY` and poldi10. A pretty exciting best of three attracted thousands of viewers, who finally saw Danny 'HuskY' Engels winning 2:1 (2:1, 2:5, 5:3). This means that SK.HuskY is Germany's best Gamer!
