PhoenixUK : Special show on Sunday at 7pm

by Archive

It has been a long time since we last did a special show, in fact I believe it was April last year when PhoenixUK was on for a regular time. Over the course of that time, many new faces have not been forced to see this wonderful masterpiece that I have created. However for a few months last year, it was an incredibly successful show that spearheaded epic.LAN’s Stream Team and provided the UK esports scene a talk show that covered a wide variety of talking points.

With epic.LAN around the corner, and much debating to be had in the scene, on Sunday evening, for three full unadulterated hours, you wonderful people will be subject to the monotone voice of Tom “Gumpster” Gumbleton, and a panel quickly whipped up in the last week or so. We will be covering, epic.TWENTY in great detail going over the various teams who could win the event, and the form guide of some of the teams at the event. There will also be two interviews as well, with teams I haven’t and won’t be covering in the written interview series I have been doing the last week or so. This is because I felt it best to give as many teams a chance to be seen and heard prior to the event in a bid to shine more light on the UK CS:GO Scene.

Of course, we will be hearing from our panel, which is made up of some rather intriguing names within the scene, and we will also be covering Dota2 in greater detail, and will particularly centre around the ordeal of Multiplay deciding to drop it from the insomnia LAN events, and how the knock on effect will be felt in the UK Dota scene.

The guests will be open to questions from the public, either through our dedicated hash tag on Twitter (#PhoenixUK) or on Twitch chat for the duration of the show. Our panel this week returns with Elliott “Sed” Brown who stems from Team uFrag and has a vast knowledge of the UK Esports landscape currently, having teams in both CS:GO & Dota.  We also have various familiar faces such as Ryan “Flakes” Oliver, Michael “Duck” Moriarty, Liam “DOOPZ” Whitehead and Douglas “Zambrella” Todd, so make sure you tune in to a cracker of a show.
