The Grand Debate: UK LAN Formats

The two biggest issues that plague UK LANs for the many years that we have seemed to enjoy them, are the following, seeding and format. Whether you are a believer in best-of-three all the way through, or best-of-one lower bracket, more group games, less group games, there is always a huge talking point every LAN. It always causes great debate’s around the scene. It should be noted though, this isn’t directed at specifically Multiplay, it is one for both UK LAN events to actually work on and continue tweaking.

It is frustrating for event organisers, because there have been expectations placed upon them by the community, but the competitive teams want something [...]

PhoenixUK: insomnia60 Special

PhoenixUK the esports talk show created by Tom “Gumpster” Gumbleton returns on Sunday evening on the epic.LAN Twitch channel and will be talking over insomnia60, the recent ECS Finals announcement, and will feature a select panel and a variety of guests. The show was founded early last year as part of epic.LAN’s Stream Team project. For a few months last year, it was an incredibly successful show that provided the UK esports scene a talk show that covered a wide variety of talking points.

After a return back in February to talk about epic.TWENTY in greater detail, we had to cover the largest LAN event in the UK which is hosted by Multiplay. It is only fitting [...]

Would more money help the UK Scene? Or should something else change?

As most people will know, the U.K. Scene has been pretty lackluster when it comes to international tournaments. Both Rory “dephh” Jackson and Kia “Surreal” Man have made the jump over to North America, joining Complexity Gaming, whilst Owen “smooya” Butterfield stood in for Flipside Tactics at the iBuyPower Masters event in December replacing electronic, who was unable to obtain a visa in time for the event. Unfortunately for smooya, Flipside crashed out of groups losing both of their games. During the WCA World Contest Championship, the three top U.K. Teams, Endpoint, FM eSports and CAZ eSports, managed 3 wins between them vs the relatively unknown Quantum Bellator, 5FRAGS.ORG and [...]

The injustice of krbY’s punishment

The following article was submitted to us by EB via out Submit News form.

The news of krbY’s cheating and subsequent ban from Multiplay events for the next 12 months is regrettably the biggest story UKCSGO has ever broken. The punishment has divided opinion. Many think that it is as black and white as cheating equals a ban. However that is naive and shows a distinct lack of understanding.

The evidence, as it stands, is a cheat-bust video and comments which are at best circumstantial.

"xenn^: might do some funny s**t on lan" "Just like, something that looks legit on LAN"

These comments do not mean he will cheat on LAN. It is entirely ridiculous to even [...]
