Multiplay have today announced that they have been forced to drop plans for their usual third LAN of the year and cancel insomnia62 for this year. In a big move, they have cited that costs at the National Exhibition Centre had become an issue for their smallest LAN of the year.
The UK Masters Summer Season has just been announced. Returning for its fourth instalment, the UK Masters is back again with another £15k prize pool for both Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, and League of Legends.
It’s that time of year again when gamers from all over the UK, and the occasional European, descend upon the Birmingham NEC for Multiplay’s Insomnia Gaming Festival. Now on its sixtieth event, i60 is moments away from having its first group stages take place. The CSGO tournament had a last minute sponsor addition with TeasmSpeak coming on board, the voice communication service which has been used by most gamers until the recent rise of Discord. However, this addition sees no change in the prize pool which remains at £7,500 but makes CSGO the second highest prize pool of the weekend, with Rocket League in first place boasting a £10,000 prize pool.
