News :: Starcraft 2

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.

epic.ELEVEN SC2 Tournament Announced

SC2OK, we gave in to the pressure and have decided to put on a small SC2 tournament for epic.ELEVEN to introduce the community to our events and hopefully grow in the future.

Sadly we haven't seen the signup numbers that we would expect from some of our other games, and following a load of interest from SC2 players, we've decided to give them the space instead as we host our first tournament in association with GameSocial.

We've made some space for the SC2 community on our seating plan, tournament signups are now open, so once you've booked your place, you can join in the tournament!

Tournament places are initially limited to 32 players with prize triggers from £250-£1000. Depending on initial interest, we may be able to raise this limit.

We look forward to seeing the community at epic.ELEVEN this July!
