epicEIGHTEEN: Quick tour with Hoss

epicEIGHTEEN may be over but we are still working through the large volume of video and photos we took over that memorable weekend. Hidden in all this, we found a video tour hosted by Ben “Hoss” Hosford. Despite its appearance of worthy of a spot on the next BBC eSports special, it was 100% unplanned, unscripted and more or less unwelcome by anyone we tried to speak to.

Featuring such delights as, the empty seats of Vatic, Winbar actually doing some work, Gumpster taking a shower and barman Ricky doing what he does best, along with more little gems you can only find at epicLAN. Enjoy!

epicEIGHTEEN: Final Standings

The biggest success story of the event though is without a shadow of a doubt the Perilous side, who have dispatched third seed, fourth seed and now second seed on their route to the epicEIGHTEEN grand final.

Coming in to the event as a mix, albeit littered with talent and [...]

epicEIGHTEEN: Interview with exceL eSports

The exceL eSports side are one of the teams that few expected to be the ones to make it past their seed. Coming into the event, even we predicted little from this side, expecting them to remain non-noteworthy throughout the event.

In reality, the team were not far from a different path through the tournament with a shaky start to the group stage, drawing with Odin eSports. However, partly due to the luck of Odin going on to take another draw, the exceL side made it out of groups in the second position.

In round two they dropped to the lower bracket at the hands of Team Infused, and eventually found themselves faced with sixth seed, playhack. The playhack side are [...]
