MexiFacts: Minnesota LAN's
Updated: Jul 2, 2021
It's Thursday and you know what that means, another banger MexiFacts article! After weeks of research and conversations with LAN Champions I finally scraped up enough information to get all the winners for Minnesota LAN's and major events. There may be some LAN's that I am missing so if you see one that is not on here let me know. I talked with Exio who was in charge of the Epic 1.0 LAN and unfortunately he didn't have the winners for that LAN. Here is the information!

Rocket League was released to the public on 07/07/2015 and according to my records, the 1st Minnesota Rocket League LAN was hosted by the University of Minnesota at GopherCon on 12/02/2017. We can say that Petar and SuperPants are the 1st players to ever win a Minnesota LAN.
The University of Minnesota hosted 3 LAN's in 2017 and early 2018 then partnered with Shift Up Esports who hosted the next 6 LAN's. Shift Up Esports are the ones who host the Player Up LAN's. Between Shift Up's LAN's, Galvanized Esports, the Minnesota Rocket League Community, and Alpine Esports all hosted LAN's.
Petar and SuperPants competed in a couple LAN's in the 2017 and early 2018 but have never competed in the MNCS. Maybe we could find these players?
4 players have won Minnesota LAN's but have never competed in MNCS: Petar, SuperPants, Unquiet, and Fredrick.
Ambrosia is the first player to win a Minnesota LAN and a Minnesota Online event.
Unquiet, Fredrick, Mexi, Gatman, and CheerioJF have won every Minnesota LAN they have competed in.
Mexi has the most consecutive Minnesota LAN victories with 5.
Marksman has won the most LAN's in Minnesota with 6 victories but doesn't compete anymore.
Despite Marksman having the most LAN victories, he lost in the Alpine Esports MOA LAN along side Ambrosia and Toast.
Upper90 Esports has won the most Minnesota LAN titles.
2019 to early 2020 was the year of Mexi and Marksman. They won 3 LAN's with 3 different 3rds: Wildcat, Zodak, and CheerioJF.
Tero, Mako, and Prussia have teamed for the last 2 Player Up LAN's and have lost twice in the Grand Finals to Mexi and Marksman.
Tero teamed with Mako and Prussia in the Player Up LAN after losing to them in the finals of the Galvanized Esports LAN.
Despite Mexi and Marksman winning 4 LAN's together, they teamed in season 2 of MNCS under the Burnsville Inferno franchise, made it to the playoffs but got 1st rounded. Marksman announced his retirement after the season.
The St. Paul Senators have won the past 2 North Star Invitationals and have made it to the grand finals in the past 2 MNCS seasons but have never won MNCS.
Here are the LAN locations: The University of Minnesota - Minneapolis, The Garage - Burnsville, Mystic Lake Casino - Prior Lakes, Minneapolis Convention Center - Minneapolis, The Left Click Lounge - Minneapolis. The majority of Minnesota LAN's have been hosted in Minneapolis.
