Reason Gaming picks up Vexstar lineup for MCM London.
After ESL’s UK Premiership Group Stage for 2016 to qualify for the finals played live at MCM London Ex-Vexstar (now Reason Gaming) take the win and move onto the live finals at MCM London. Following the qualification through the group stages to the live event of which the team will play against MnM Gaming (Molotovs n Marshmallows) competing for the £6,000 prize pool which will be played out on October 28th.
The team’s confrontation against Fish123 on Monday ended in a swift 2-0. The two maps played out were Dust 2 & Cache, on the first map the half finished 11:4 in favour of Reason with Fish123 to pick up a series of rounds with a potential of a comeback but to be shortly shut down by Reason Gaming taking the first map 16:11. Moving onto Cache it was do or die for Fish123 with no lifeline & no second chances, they would have to close out Cache followed by Mirage. Kicking off the map Reason rocket through the first half ending it 11:4 as the previous map, cruising onto the second half only letting 3 rounds slip, Reason claim their spot at MCM London for the live finals.
Here’s what Owner of Reason Gaming, Adam “Blanks” Heath had to say about the move;
If I was to sum this EPS season up in one word, it would be “confusing”. We started off the season with a very keen team who wanted to talk about other events, both domestic and international, and somewhere along the lines ended up with a team that were playing in four different tournaments under four different names. It’s probably the most extreme UK scene cliché that I’ve ever seen. It’s a shame things didn’t work out with the roster as I have great respect for some of the players in the team and looked forward to working with them, but some things just aren’t meant to be. That being said, who wouldn’t walk over burning coals to work with some of the names in this lineup! I’m very happy that we managed to come to an agreement with Vexstar to represent us at MCM Comic Con London, and I have made it clear that should this mix transform into a team, that the door is open for them to stay under the Reason banner.
The lineup which will be representing Reason MCM London consists of;
- James ‘Kryptix’ Affleck
- Sam ‘RattlesnK’ Gawn
- Ben ‘r0m’ Smith
- Valentin ‘Bishop’ Canepa
- Robin ‘RobiNasTy’ Perret
