Team Rise win League of Legends UK Bronze to Gold tournament


We don’t want to just write about the ESL UK Premiership, Worlds or other top tournaments here at Leet – we want to recognise up and coming UK-based talent in the game too.

On that note, Team Rise has just won the League of Legends UK Bronze to Gold tournament. I want to highlight it because a) it’s good to cover all ranks of play, and b) because I have been a part of the League of Legends UK Facebook group/community for a year or so now, and it does a lot of great stuff like this.

EGX 2015 eSports Winners: Raven named ‘UK’s best gamer’; French boys Team EnVyUs win at CSGO again


Another week, another UK-based eSports tournament, another British rising star emerges.

This week it gives me great pleasure to report on the winner of the six-game Virgin Media Hexathlon tournament: Alexander “Raven” Baguley – a fine, genuine man and believe it or not one of my old close World of Warcraft guildmates from almost ten years ago (I clearly taught him everything he knows).

Problem X interview: UK Street Fighter eSports pro on winning Dreamhack London, beating Justin Wong and his future ambitions

Problem X interview

Benjamin “Problem X” Simon.

Remember the name.

To those of you who think UK eSports is dead, this 23-year-old was the only Brit to win an eSports tournament at DreamHack London last weekend, taking home $2,500 after finishing first in the Ultra Street Fighter IV contest. It’s one of many tournaments he’s won.

In this exclusive post-DreamHack interview, I ask him about that victory, his complete winning record, what can be done for UK players to improve in other games and what’s next for him. And yes, I left the emotes in his answers for an extra touch of personality!

“UK eSports is dead”


EZskins said they were “embarrassed” after their performances at Dreamhack London

As I was sitting in the press room at Dreamhack London last weekend, a bunch of lads working for one of the eSports teams walked into the room, joking amongst themselves.

“UK eSports is dead,” one laughed. “If that’s the best we can do, we have no chance,” another quipped. They were commenting on the fact that the only British CSGO team at the event, EZskins, had just been demolished 16-2 by Team Dignitas’ Danish team. But while they were having a laugh, deep down I could tell they were frustrated. And it got me thinking about the current level of eSports in the UK.

ESL UK postpones October League of Legends Premiership games after NUEL forfeit match


There will be no League of Legends UK Premiership games throughout October, as ESL UK will take the time out to move its studio to a “much larger dedicated building” and make some “exciting developments”. Ooh-er, sounds very snazzy. No, we’re not sure how we’re going to cope without those matches either (we’re going to have to take caster Munchables advice, who is looking rather fashionable in the picture above).

Speaking of matches, we were all tied up at Dreamhack London last weekend, so here’s also a quick catch-up of the LoL games that happened on the weekend (including details of NUEL forfeiting a match).
