First legendary Linez master

It's been over one year since the launch of varten.com. Numerous Linez players have been trying hard to first break the 10000-point mark to get the most coveted title — Legendary. Among the most promising players was ainano from Japan, who hit 9250 last week. Today, however, a dark horse emerged from nowhere and grabbed the holy grail in sweeping triumph — player 8940 (also from Japan) has achieved a startlingly impressive score of 11113 and become the first Legendary Linez Master. Congratulations, 8940!!
