We lapsed on our coverage last week, but no fear for we have returned for Week Three, albeit in a shorter version. This time we’ll take a look at the action from the past two weeks, list the tables and give a small comment on the upcoming games. Simple stuff. In the time we’ve been gone: rosters have made slight moves, orgs have signed teams and games have been played.
Hey! Here’s a post from us that’s in a format that’s a tad unusual. I’m Michael “DuckMoriarty” Moriarty, the new / returning / never really left Editor-in-Chief for the website we know as UKCSGO. I’m here to talk about what UKCSGO.com will be doing in 2018, and the further future, so the best way would be through a simple post right before epicLAN kicks off this weekend. Below is a list of things that are set to be changing and how we’ll content up your life.
A brand new season of ESL Premiership kicks off once again tonight, and what a cracking unpredictable season we have in store here. As the UK scene comes out of a lengthy vacation period between last events of 2017 and the beginning of events this year, we now have the crown jewel back at the top of our agenda. ESL Premiership this season boasts £12,000 in Prize pool, and instead of the 8 teams we have become accustomed to, we have 10. This merited a bit more exposure on the league itself, and a chance for players to chip in and build some branding to help them elevate to new levels in the UK Counter-Strike scene.
It’s a little bit of time since the end of ESEA Season 26, but thanks to ESL’s announcement we now know the teams who have managed to qualify to the ESL Premiership – the highest possible (now that Gfinity Elite Series has dropped CS:GO) and longest running (7 seasons) league within the UK. After a very long and tiring season for many teams, over 89 teams competed in the season with 32 teams making the playoffs to find the four teams who would join the other four teams in ESL Premiership.
