The Group stages have concluded, and now it’s time for the Elimination Bracket. For the first time, in a very very long time at an iSeries event, we have finally got a big wish where 31 teams square up to each other and play in the Elimination Bracket. That means the top two from each group get promoted and one of the UK Masters Finalists get placed into the bracket.
Always the fun part of LAN for some of the worst teams in the scene, and the boring part for some of the better teams, it is the group stage. The groups kicked off a few hours ago after a series of delays due to an issue with the networking side of the tournament platform they had brought in for this event. This meant a lot of confusion and issues, and debates on whether to move back to Battlefy.
Here is a roundup post of where we are at in terms of all the biggest leagues and events in the UK currently. I will be going over ESL Premiership, Gfinity Elite Series, Multiplay’s UK Masters and of course the ESEA Open United Kingdom division. It should detail who is doing what in each respective league, and who are the biggest winners and losers to date.
