The winners of the qualifiers
New for the 2023 edition, two slots were up for grabs through a qualification phase. On Trackmania, Shootmania, Fall Guys or You Suck At Parking, Taak and Lockness have proven their skill and versatility.
If you have been following the ZLAN for a few years, the pseudo Taak probably doesn't look familiar to you, and that's quite normal! This talented multigaming player was part of Team Mercatoed during the ZLAN 2022. Together with his teammates Nykho and Titatitutu, he reached the Grand Final, but had to settle for second place. There is no doubt that he will do his best to lift the trophy this year!
LocknessEven the UFO of the qualifiers, You Suck At Parking, did not scare him, as he finished second just behind Taak. The winner of this first stage, which brought together no less than 1,400 participants, is already a serious candidate for the podium.
The experience of the ZLAN is definitely a plus to better apprehend the competition. More than experienced, the following players have all reached the finals of a ZLAN at least once, or even lifted the trophy. It goes without saying that we will have to keep an eye on them!
- Oslo - If Taak and his team only managed to win the trophy at ZLAN 2022, it was because Oslo and the other Team Gools were the best. Oslo is a true all-rounder. Whether at the wheel of a car or as a battle leader, he will undoubtedly use his expertise to reach the final stages of the 2023 edition.
- Nykho - As a member of Team Mercatoed, he also participated in the ZLAN 2022 final. Genius pilot, he had distinguished himself during the training phase by breaking records on the Hot Wheels Unleashed tracks. So we're waiting for him on You Suck At Parking! Although he didn't get the chance to win the 2022 edition, he is still a top challenger, as he reached the top step of the podium during the 2019 ZLAN.
- Titatitutu - This is another name that should be familiar to you if you are a fan of the ZLAN. This multigaming war machine has reached the final stages of four different editions! In 2019 and 2022, he finished in second place and got the third step of the podium in 2020 and 2021. His knowledge of the ZLAN world will make him an excellent partner during the team events.
- KennyStream - Undefeated in LAN petanque As he writes in his Twitter bio, Kenny is the latest player in our selection. He knows the ZLAN well! In the past, he has both reached second place and won the competition. Able to finish Trackmania tracks with the Guitar Hero guitar, he is a strong competitor. He'll be coming for a new trophy, no doubt about it!
