When I had a quick glance the other day on the insomnia63 sign up list, there was a group of names I recognised from the Counter-Strike: Source and early CS:GO days, that I hadn’t really seen in a long time.

Since we announced that insomnia63 would have a whopping £30,000 up for grabs last month, there has always been a question mark on how many teams would get paid prize money through the expanded prize pool. In normal iSeries events, the prize pool would be distributed to the Top 8, and everyone else would just suffer, however we can reveal new information to the public on how many teams will get paid this time round and with what money.

It has been a while since we heard much from our owner’s organisation camp. Rasta Gaming has announced their return to competitive CS:GO with a brand new team ready to hit various LAN events and online events over the course of 2018. It is a team that is very much comprised of some familiar names within the UK scene.
