    Default Special Event Weekend | Community Lobbies, Live Streams and More!

    [GCON] Special Event Weekend: Ladies Night Event & More

    Another Gears Weekend is approaching, and we at Gear Community Online Network are returning with a featured night of events as we prepare our sponsors for the events ahead. As Gears of War 3 is bringing a big female presence to the Gears Universe, we at GCON are honoring that with Ladies Night! Featuring livestream matches from some of the best ladies who play Gears of War, we'll be running lobbies with professional female gamers beforehand in our popular Community Nights format. You can watch the action at Twitch.TV/Gearscon.

    Calibur11 will be dropping by our live streaming channel this weekend in their continuing support of Gears Weekends. We'll be having Coy and Sid from Calibur11 on to talk more about the development of the Gears of War 3 Vault as well as giving away a few of their new "Bleedout" hoodie designs. The stream can be found at Twitch.TV/Gearscon.

    The event has a much bigger meaning than just a standard "Ladies Night" affair - all our efforts on Saturday will be towards the "Help for Jena" campaign, which works towards supporting one amazing person's efforts in saving her sister.

    This 2 day event will bring the gaming industry together to help raise money for Rebel Gamings, Stephanie Vivian’s sister, Jena Aird-Spach. Jena was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia) in 2009.


    Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow. On October 25th, 2010 Jena received a bone marrow transplant. It is unfortunate her body did not respond well to it, and it failed. Soon after her Dr.s told her that more chemo could be deadly to her, as possibly another bone marrow transplant at this time. Jena is maintaining her leukemia with medications currently, and we are hopeful that we can seek out alternative medicine.
    Stephanie, the woman behind the campaign, has been doing incredible work and we would love to ask you help us do our part by supporting her through our live stream. The Gears Community is THE best when it comes to charity support, so let's continue that reputation with another lot of incredible support. Stephanie is also auctioning off Gears of War items this weekend only, including dev-team signed posters, to raise money for the cause - make sure you drop by HERE to put your bid in! If you would like to simply donate, we ask you to donate via this link HERE. Thank you for your support.

    On Sunday, we follow up our night of events with our GameDunzo Featured Invitational, pitting 8 of the biggest competitive teams against each other in a single map elimination challenge. Quick, snappy and intense matches will fill this night of events, and all of it will be found on our live streaming channel at Twitch.TV/Gearscon.

    For fans on Twitter, you can join the conversation with the hashtag #GearsWeekend before, during and after the event. Epic Games will be randomly selecting tweets with that hashtag every Monday to win a prize, so join in and spread the word!

    Streams are region-free man! If they invite people in, it's not US-specific.

    Glad that this Gearsweekend will be going towards a good cause. Cannot wait for this weekend, I hope that I can participate because I'm in the middle of a move and might not have internet. Crossing fingers

    I see that you used my alternate header image. The primary was more appropriate, don't you think? Tee hee hee.
