PhoenixUK: Formats and Seedings Special – Friday 9pm

PhoenixUK the esports talk show created by Tom “Gumpster” Gumbleton returns on Friday evening on the epic.LAN Twitch channel and will be talking over insomnia60, the issues surrounding the LAN Formats deployed in the UK, the seedings issues that plague our scene and how to improve it. The show was founded early last year as part of epic.LAN’s Stream Team project. For a few months last year, it was an incredibly successful show that provided the UK esports scene a talk show that covered a wide variety of talking points.

If you missed my very special article this week, I talked a lot about some of the immediate feedback that happened from insomnia60 over the weekend, around LAN [...]

The Grand Debate: UK LAN Formats

The two biggest issues that plague UK LANs for the many years that we have seemed to enjoy them, are the following, seeding and format.

ESEA announce Season 25

The new league season of ESEA has been officially announced over the weekend. As is now the tradition, there is included an Open United Kingdom division, so if you are a UK team, you can compete against hundreds of other UK teams and play for a chance to move up divisions to the Intermediate Division. This season sees a bump in prize pools too and an additional division given to Turkey.

Last season saw 157 UK teams participate in the UK Open Division and 49 UK teams have already signed up. If you are looking for a league to play in the coming weeks after LAN has concluded, this would be the best place to go at current time. It was fm-eSports who simply reigned supreme last [...]

insomnia60: Final Standings

After a weekend of non stop Counter-Strike action, insomnia60 CS:GO Tournament has come to a close. It’s been a surprising one, especially with lots of debates around scheduling tournaments. Suffice to say, we have seen the best and brightest of the UK CS Scene get together and provide a weekend of quality entertainment, even though it was till the early hours of the morning in Saturday’s case.

Firstly I will apologise for the lack of “coverage” from our team here at UKCSGO, Adam “Blanks” Heath made a decision prior to the event to ask for Press Passes, despite previous events, being declined at every opportunity, the cost of sending 2 or 3 [...]
