It may not be the ELEAGUE Atlanta Major, but the UK has some of it’s own domestic LAN events to look forward to. 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.

Over the course of that time, many new faces have not been forced to see this wonderful masterpiece that I have created.

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 [...]
In an interesting turn of events tonight, Team uFrag’s main team uFrag.AF, have been proactively on Twitter systematically announcing their departures from the organisation. Team uFrag have never been the pillars of stability, going through numerous roster changes over the years they have been around, but there has always been one man who has stuck with Team uFrag through thick and thin, that being Adam “adamxoxo” Rotherham.
He however decided to announce on Twitter that he had left the organisation which signalled a bit of a shockwave throughout the scene. Meanwhile Harry “Pommey” Crawford simply said this on Twitter earlier as well. The rest of [...]
