ReDeYe is a man who really needs no introduction for anybody that follows eSports, working more and more events ever since his departure of Gfinity at the end of February, ReDeYe is a man of many talents and easily one of the if not the best eSports host.

Today is the day myself and the [...]
Prior to LAN I managed to talk with Mick of Perilous Gaming about the upcoming event, his role in Perilous and how he can still bring himself to support Newcastle. Along with this Mick has also been taking part in the new UK eSports chat show Phoenix, hosted on the epic.LAN twitch on Sunday evenings, at 7pm. Phoenix can be watched Here.
How are you and your teams preparing for the upcoming EPIC Lan?
