The weekend of the 4th saw London Esports return to Coventry at the Grosvenor Casino for the second season of the epicLAN x Grosvenor Casino championship.
Reigning champions from season one London Esports headed into this new season with hopes of defending their title. After a recent win at Insomnia London went in with confidence and the drive to achieve back to back LAN wins. Travis ‘L1NK’ Mendoza was apart of the original London Esports roster who won season one of the epicLAN x Grosvenor Casino event and made his return to also win season two under the London Esports name.
Saturday hosted the group stages where we battled it out against BuzzKill, davidblack444 and Reflex. The group stages were played as best of one’s and we managed to go unbeaten with a record of 3-0, meaning we have secured our place in the semi-finals. Through to Sunday which hosted the semi-finals and the grand finals of the £10000 tournament. Our semi-final best of three game was played against Fierce, a team made up largely of our old roster. It was an incredibly tough series which London managed to clinch winning 2-1. Onto the finals where London come across BuzzKill. It was another hard series as London lost map one but managed to come back and steal the finals with a 2-1 victory over BuzzKill. London was crowned season two champions and back to back winners of the epicLan x Grosvenor casino’s champion! We are very proud of what the team achieved and hope for many more wins in the near future!
