As our UK Championship Series draws near, we are pleased to announce the first three teams to be invited! These teams were drawn from the top talent the UK has to offer, and we are proud to offer each of them a position in our event.
Our first team for this set of invitations is Rasta.LoL, a branch of the very well established UK eSports organization “Rasta Gaming.” The roster consists of Shawzie at top, Hoss in the jungle, Smudgecat at mid, Jcasanas at AD carry, and DodgyDave at support. With minimal changes since their win at the i49 intermediate bracket tournament and a fourth place finish at the MCM Open Tournament, they look poised to continue their success in the UKCS!
The next team to be invited for the qualifier is fm-eSports. With an awesome roster of Tundra at top, Dan in the jungle, Krisso at mid, Shifthaz at AD carry, and B0lt at support, they are looking strong for this event. With a history of top two finishes, most recently at the i50 LAN, they are one of the strongest teams in the UK and we look forward to watching them compete in our event!
Our last team, Perilous Void, is hosted by Perilous Gaming. The roster consists of Splosive in the top lane, Rippy in the jungle, Thresha at mid, Samhodge at AD carry, and Matlish at support. With a few other tournaments, including placing in some of the Insomnia LANs; they are team with untold potential and the UKCS is glad to offer them a spot to prove themselves on a bigger stage!
