epsilonminiSwanny Steps Down from Epsilon NA

After competing with the Epsilon North America squad for a number of months, British player ‘Swanny’ has made the decision to remain in the UK after working as an analyst during the Gfinity Summer Championship. Although there has not been a lot of details released by the player, he’s called it a necessary short term sacrifice in order to keep competing, which roughly translates as US Visa issues.

  Rise Nation 200x200elevate_200x200 eLevate and Rise Announce Permanent Team Change   Aside from the change below to do with the Gfinity $100,000 Summer Championship, eLevate have also announced a permanent change in the team as former player Teej is brought back in replacement for Apathy who has been dropped from the team. The former Prophecy player has done the opposite and joined Rise in a straight trade.   elevate_200x200 Team eLevate   us Classic us Slacked us Saints us Teej   Rise Nation 200x200 Rise Nation   us Whea7s us Chino us TcM us Apathy   elevate_200x200 eLevate Announce Gfinity Summer Championship Roster   Please note – This change will only be in effect for the Gfinity Summer Championship at the end of this month in London. Due to age issues with ‘Teej’ and passport problems with ‘Saints’, eLevate have been forced to find 2 players to join ‘Classic’ and ‘Slacked’ for their trip to London at the end of this month to compete in the Gfinity Summer Championship for over $100,000. Stepping up will be Denial players ‘Slasher’ and ‘Replays’ whose team face similar issues attending European events due to ‘Huke’ and ‘Temp’ not making the age cut.

Update 14th July

  e62Enigma6 Lose Parasite and MRuiz   After a poor performance at UMG Dallas at the weekend where they placed 13th-16th, ‘Parasite’ has announced he will be leaving the E6 squad in order to pickup for iSolation Empire in the MLG Pro League. It was also announced that MRuiz was to be dropped also, leaving ‘General’ and ‘Proofy’ looking for 2. Whilst the split seems amicable with Parasite, General did have this to say on Twitter, LINK.   e62Enigma6   us General us Proofy CAUS ? CAUS ?  

Update 7th July

  xgm1XGN Announce UMG Dallas lineup   Despite not having a season 3 spot, the XGN organisation were still able to attract some big names for UMG Dallas as we see a formidable team formed in Goonjar, Killa, Spacely and Studyy.

Update 6th July

  Rise Nation 200x200 Rise Drop Goonjar   It appears Goonjar joining the Rise Nation team, after being dropped by TK, was very much a temporary move in order to make sure they had enough players in time for the roster deadline last week. It was announced on Twitter last night that the organisation would be picking up former JusTus member TcM. Canadian Goonjar now tweeting that he’s a F/A.   Rise Nation 200x200Rise Nation   us Whea7s us Chino us Teej us Goonjar

LIVE REPORT: Gfinity Summer Masters Day 3

Faze too much for Liquid Gaming, TK lose round 11 to Infused

Liquid Gaming no match for FaZe

The only question about FaZe and Liquid Gaming’s outcome was how quickly it would take the UMG Dallas champions to race to a 3-0 win.

With all due respect, the Italians are almost certainly in contention for the worst team at the tournament and there were no expectations for them to beat anyone bar perhaps – and some would arguably still consider it an upset – their mainland cousins. A clash versus Spirit Gaming could be interesting.

If anything, the breakdown of scores should be somewhat encouraging for them and while the scores were by no means close, they were at least able to intermittently challenge FaZe to avoid humiliation. They will consider this is a priceless experience to practice against quite literally the world’s team to beat.

Infused join countrymen Epsilon at TK’s expense

What a day for UK contingents as Infused claim a second North American head in the shape of Team Kaliber.

A strong contender for match of the day, TK almost fought back to edge victory on Hardpoint Detroit but Scotsman MarkyB would have none of it by roaring into the final area to bring a halt to his opponents escalating score.

Despite that satisfaction of a marginal 227 to 223 win, TK regrouped with a resolute 6 to 2 round score on S&D riot to bring them level. Signs of a game 5 nail biter began to flash and indeed, a one point map in favour of TK on Uplink Biolab required some experienced nerve by the boys in red to respond to.

And reply they did with another thriller, pulling ahead at the end of Hardpoint Solar to win 202 to 182 and, as if there was ever any doubt, set the stage for one final Search and Destroy.

Only an 11-round finale would do and after trading rounds, TK lead 5 – 4 before Infused snatched the final 2 to join Epsilon into the second stage of the groups on Saturday.

Epsilon Survive Rise Nation Scare

A perfect start by the AM2PRO Omnia champions almost turned into tears as Epsilon relinquished a 2-0 lead in spectacular fashion as they all but complacently let Rise stomp them in response.

New recruit and former Epsilon veteran MadCat lead the way in style on Hardpoint Detroit, finishing on 44 kills to a statement of fierce intent to his North American foes.

And that was nothing but a mere taster of punishment for attempting to invade European soil, reducing Rise to the shame of a 0-6 defeat on Search and Destroy that would have deflated most teams into a terminal sulk in concession of inevitable defeat.

But the taste of close victory is a familiar one for British teams and history, on yet another occasion, almost returned to tally another haunting defeat as Rise roared back to square up the match at 2 maps apiece.

A squeaky 6-4 Uplink Biolab win turned the momentum and they ended Hardpoint Solar with 230 points to 129, knocking the confidence out of Reedy along the way who looked visibly speechless with just 17 kills to 44 deaths.

The final Search and Destroy was a toe-to-toe affair until Epsilon found breathing space at 5-3 from 3-3 before closing out the game 6-3 overall.

A beaming MadCat was relieved and while he acknowledged their inability to close out the game with momentum in their favour, he believes we still have a lot to see from the group. For now, they have the rest of the day to relax before returning to the fray tomorrow.
