Epic.SEVENTEEN took place last weekend which saw an amazing CSGO turnout with 26 teams attend the £3,000 prizepool tournament. Like may events before, seeds proved not to an accurate representation of the final outcome of the tournament. CeX, the first seed and defending iSeries champions, were pegged to do well with their lineup changes but found themselves finishing outside the top 3. uFrag met their 3rd place seed, bagging £300 and a discount on epic.EIGHTEEN, also defeating CeX.
The two top spots in this event were both claimed by mixes, which is fast becoming the standard of epicLAN. The Barrage eSports mix met the Infused mix in the grand final, where Barrage claimed the [...]
The game is done and we’re finished here in Kettering for another three months or so. The Grand Final was set with a a one map advantage for the Barrage side, as they had managed to push through the entire upper bracket without dropping a map (nor did they drop more than 9 rounds).

The first map of the grand final was Cache, which was the pick by Infused so it was set to be a good exciting match as there would be two teams set to make amends except… Barrage didn’t [...]
The epic.17 grand final is minutes away from kicked off between second seed, Barrage eSports, going up against the fourth place seed Infused.MIX, who beat uFrag 2-0 in the lower bracket final in the early hours of this morning.
The map vetoing was completed moments ago, with admin Jon “ViciousHorizon” Kelly sporting his very best dressing gown.

Number 1 seed CeX have been beaten by the 3rd seeded team uFrag 2-1 in the Lower Bracket consolidation final, providing a huge upset against a side who have managed to qualify for the past three UK LAN finals and also one of the key favourites to win the event.
The first map came on as Overpass, of which would be an interesting matchup as CeX would be wanting to make amends for their loss against Infused earlier in the day. uFrag on the other hand were brimming with confidence with the belief that they could potentially take the next game. The game started off well as uFrag went 5-0 up giving CeX’s morale a bit of a bashing. This continued on pretty well, as uFrag [...]
