After that he excelled with a few top3 placings at local Sydney LAN tournaments. Also on road to improvement, PiG took 3rd place in an NA ESL tournament as he massed tournaments on the NA server for practice.

PiG finished in third place at the Australian WCG National Finals in October 2011, despite falling to the lower bracket in the first round.
