Team Hektar Helden win 1st Farming Simulator Championship

It’s Saturday, the final day of the first Farming Simulator Championship and after only 3 minutes the team “Hektar Helden” are about to load the few remaining bales on the bale wagon when the moderator shouts “And it looks like they could beat the fastest time!”. The crowd’s excitement over the unbelievable time changes into shock when the 20th and all deciding bale falls off the wagon. Their voices get louder again once they realize that even despite this misfortune it’s still possible to beat the already amazing time of 4:39:76 set by Vertexdezign one day earlier – almost one minute faster than the next best team Creative Mesh. They all hold their breath when the bale gets placed onto the wagon for the second time. And this time it stays stable. Now they just have to drive back all their vehicles. The time stops at 4:18.13 and thundering applause welcomes the new leaders of the competition.

And they stay on top. No other team is able to threaten their time throughout the rest of the tournament. People say that the “Hektar Helden” changed their tactics two times while preparing for the championship to get below 6 minutes and then finally even below 4 minutes. If you look at the stack of bales on the wagon it’s seems to be some sort of “All or Nothing” tactic but it worked and later in the evening they could wear their gold medals, lift the cup and call themselves the 1st Farming Simulator Champions. As a special prize each of them also got a GIGABYTE GTX 1070Ti graphics card with NVIDIA chipset in addition to the title and the prizes the sponsor GIGABYTE provided for the daily winners (K3 FORCE keyboard, XM 300 mouse and AORUS H5 headset each) as well as tractor models from various brands.

We hope that all participants and spectators had as much fun as we had. Also we’d like to thank the partners and sponsors DLG, Agritechnica and the profi and Stark magazines for the great cooperation. We’re already thinking about how to advance from here and if you want to share your ideas with us, feel free to participate here in this thread.

just curious to how the winning team managed to get their time, is there a change we get to see a video of their run?

Sounds like it was lots of fun. I second the vote to see some video of the details if it exists.

Our VideoDude hasn't been there all the time, so I'm not sure if he has the footage of the winning run. I'll ask him once he is back in the office.

We will have more footage once we do that again (and we will as it was a lot of fun). It was a first test and it went very well, so FSC will be a thing in the future.

Who knows, may be in the future you would have the chance to setup some PC and console servers to make FSC like league or something :coolnew:
