epic28 SOLD OUT

Less than one year after we expanded our events in to the Kettering Conference Centre Arena, we've sold out of BYOC tickets for epic28!

We still have spectator tickets left and a number of Turn Up and Play (TUP) tickets for the Battalion 1944 tournament only. 

A sellout for us, really does mean a sellout, we will not be able to increase the number of spaces available this close to the event as all of our logistics are in place. 

That means the only way of getting a BYOC ticket at this point is through the waiting list.

Farewell to the epic.FORUMS

It’s time to bid farewell to the epic.FORUMS, as we will be putting them into read only mode on Friday 14th July.  They’ve served epic.LAN well for many years, being a place where we could communicate, share content and keep up to date on everything epic related, and have a chat about our favourite TV shows, and play a few games as well. 

We’re all using other methods to communicate now, so we’re going to put the interaction part that was on the forums into Discord.  This will go into our current layout, although we’ll occasionally create specific (and sometimes temporary) channels when we’re looking for feedback on certain things, such as event-specific defrag plans, through to time-limited events info.

An old friend gives back to the community

I think it's fair to say that epic.LAN has become the home of the UK Starcraft 2 community over recent years. Bearing in mind the game was released nearly 10 years ago, epic26 is about to see a full SC2 tournament with 32 players, with a community that is showing some more recent titles how it's done. 

The SC2 players are always friendly and show the event and the epic.LAN staff a world of respect; because we keep supporting the community, they keep coming back, event after event and they're a pleasure to have at our LANs. 

Earlier this week, I was contacted by someone who attended their first epic.LAN as a Starcraft 2 player in 2014, and went on to win the tournament at epic14, take 2nd place at epic15 & epic16 before moving on to play (and win) Overwatch at epic20 and of course Overwatch is where you will find Boombox playing now, but now with OWL team, Philadelphia Fusion.
