MarkyB “Me and Tommey Clash In Game” – Post-ESWC Interview

We interviewed Vitality Storm player Mark ‘MarkyB’ Bryceland about Vitality, Tommey, ESWC and more, recorded just after being knocked out by OpTiC.

Vitality and Epsilon Gfinity Rosters

Rosters are locked down for Gfinity ahead of the $25K tournament this weekend in London. Yesterday we announced that Joshh had departed Epsilon after over a year representing the European powerhouse. After a disappointing final tournament at ESWC in Paris, Joshh has announced that he’ll again be lining up alongside Tommey and has followed his former Epsilon team mate to Vitality Storm.

Tommey took to Twitter to make the following statement:

Now that the weekend is over we can finally announce that @Vitality_Joshh will be joining the Vitality @StormEU roster. We’ll be playing alongside @Reedy_1905 and @MarkyBCoD at the Gfinity Masters this weekend.

Interestingly, both Tommey’s comments and accompanying Tweets from fellow team members hint towards the short term nature of this new line up. In an interview with Dexerto.com by MarkyB, the former TCM man sighted a clash of personalities between himself and Tommey that could ultimately put the brakes on the new team after Gfinity. Likely, their future will be decided this weekend.

READ: Joshh Departs Epsilon

Epsilon are rumoured to have similarly opted for a short term solution ahead of this weekend’s tournament in London, England. With Tommey only a substitute in Paris, Joshh announcing his departure and MadCat soon to be US bound, the Epsilon ranks are looking depleted.

The European Championship organisation are said to have assembled something of a makeshift lineup to guarantee their inclusion in Britain’s premier tournament. MadCat’s services will be retained for one final outing, for now at least, as the future TCM star pulls on an Epsilon jersey alongside Swanny on Saturday. Joining Swanny and MadCat will be two members of the now defunct Call of Duty Championship Runners Up team, Team Revenge. Remy and Faccento will link up with Swanny and MadCat to form the only Angelo-American team in attendance. The long term future of both lineups remain extremely uncertain.

MarkyB “Me and Tommey Clash In Game” – Post-ESWC Interview

We interviewed Vitality Storm player Mark ‘MarkyB’ Bryceland about Vitality, Tommey, ESWC and more, recorded just after being knocked out by OpTiC.

Joshh Leaves Epsilon

The Epsilon era is officially over. With Tommey pledging his future to Vitality, MadCat seemingly heading to the States and now Joshh announcing his departure, Europe’s most consistent team ever have called it a day. Aside from their modest placements away from home soil, Epsilon have done what other teams of their calibre have all failed to do in the past and that is to established and maintain domestic dominance.

READ: MadCat on TCM MLG Pro League Roster

Joshh has been a huge part of the team’s success but today took to Twitter to announce, via Twitlonger, that he was no longer an Epsilon man.

I’m no longer part of Epsilon eSports, I’ve been with the organisation for around a year now and I have nothing but good things to say about everyone behind the org but as you all know, all good things come to an end eventually and that is now. I’d like to thank everyone who I’ve worked with in the org, you’ve all helped me further my career (@MrPetillant mainly) and I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for you.

I can’t say much more at the moment but all will become clear later on today and hopefully you’ll all understand.

Thanks for the continued support!

 

Epsilon made an official announce through their website about Josh’s exit from their pro Call of Duty roster.

We can today announce that Joshua ‘Joshh’ Sheppard will depart our Call of Duty team by mutual consent.

However, it was felt by both parties that the time is now right for Joshh to move on and we wish him the very best of luck with whatever the future may hold.
Joshh’s enthusiasm and efforts have always been of the highest order and we thank him for this during his time in Epsilon.

 

This now leaves former OpTic man, Callum ‘Swanny’ Swan as the only surviving member of the class of 2015. The move is expected to trigger mass player transfer among the British elite in the coming weeks. So far there has been limited speculation about the future Epsilon roster. Epsilon’s social media manager Neil ‘Grumpy Gamer’ Harvey also paid tribute to the now defunct foursome, suggesting that new players are also inbound.

ESWC Championship Wrap Up and Road to Victory

Another enthralling ESWC has come to a close with OpTic Gaming taking home first place ahead of Denial in second place. Crimsix picked up his third consecutive ESWC title as OpTic cruised to emphatic victory, dropping only one map on the entirety of Sunday.

OpTic Gaming Road to Victory

 

OpTic Gaming 3-0 Vitality Storm

VIEW: OpTic v Vitality Introduction

Today’s action got off with a bang with two crowd favourites facing off. OpTic Gaming advanced to the Grand Final with a 3-0 victory but the score line certainly flattered the Green Wall. Solid performances on maps 2 and 3 went unrewarded for Vitality who deservedly looked jaded when being presented with their top 4 cheque.

Denial 3-2 Revenge

VIEW: Denial v Revenge Introduction

VIEW: Denial v Revenge Reaction

Revenge Gaming had the opportunity to go out with one last bang after announcing their separation. After going two maps down, this year’s Call of Duty Championship Runners Up mounted an impressive come back and were in the ascendency for parts of the final map. Denial came from behind though and snatched victory from their opponents to set up a Grand Final appearance. It’s certainly sad to see Revenge for their separate ways.

OpTic Gaming 3-1 Denial

OpTic Gaming took the final by the scruff of the neck and were well deserving of their 1-0 lead. On S&D they threatened to let Denial back into the contest but showed nerve to take extend their advantage. Map 3 was their only real slip up, with a mistake by Crimsix eventually proving to be costly in ending the first side early. A nail biting final map saw the lead change hands 3 times before Crimsix atoned for his earlier mistake in a series he’d otherwise played flawlessly. A flag capture in the dying seconds was enough for the former Complexity man to see out the series for OpTic.
