SkyLAN is an organizer with impressive growth since their first event, SkyLAN BETA that took place in Lyon early 2013. In less than a year they’re going to be running their 4th event which will this time gather up to 64 teams on Call of Duty Ghosts who will try to earn the biggest share of the 10,000euros guaranteed prize share. Big show expected from the best teams France has to offer.

We’re looking forward meeting the community and an other great weekend of Call of Duty Ghosts competition.”


ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until we invented the SCUF in 2010, gamers could only use compromising techniques like “CLAW” to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity in a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Professional gamers, who need to control over 20 functions whilst they’re in gameplay; making use of only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is extremely limiting at the Top level. One size cannot fit all and will not fit all for the elite 10% of the community. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment; hence why some Professional players were eventually forced to use techniques like CLAW; which can be very harmful to your hand with repetition. The paddles and trigger mechanisms that Scuf Gaming developed and patented allow each player to choose their preferred settings for gameplay and help them become the best gamer of they can be.
