Team Infused have announced today that they have replaced Steven “Snakey” Dang with Charlie “Pickles” Pickles through social media. Team Infused have been competing in both ESL Premiership and Multiplay’s UK Masters. They also have been competing in the European league, ESEA’s Open League. However, results have been not quite where they had wanted in the meantime. They failed to qualify for ESL Premiership having finished fifth in the table with three losses. They’ve lost four times in ESEA (although three of them have been defaults with teams not budging on time or dates).
This marks the first official change since Team Infused [...]
It is the brand new league season of UK Masters, so as I kind of missed the boat for both UKGT & ESL UK Premiership, we are going to do our famous prediction articles for UK Masters. Multiplay introduced UK Masters early last year, and it became that successful that they saw incredible potential to do more with it. They introduced the Best-Of-Two league stage with money up for grabs each time someone wins.
We are now onto the third season, aptly named Spring Season 2017, and with £15,000 up for grabs it will surely be an intense league season. Marred in some controversy in the qualifiers, we have finally arrived at the correct number of teams for the league season. Eight [...]

The first UK LAN is always a highly competitive affair, mixed with a lot of intriguing results, new lineups, and incredible drama to boot. With epic.TWENTY around the corner in the next couple of weeks, I have started sitting down with various team representatives and their thoughts on a wide ranging array of subjects going over previous LAN results, their thoughts on the UK Scene, epic.LAN in general, and their own team and what they are hoping to achieve with the current roster. This is the final of six interviews with various team captains and team players. This time we [...]
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 [...]
