Cancellations, Transfers and Waiting Lists

Great news, even with a bigger capacity for 2017, we're sold out for epic20. Don't be mad if you missed out, it's not our fault! The capacity is final, we're unable to add in any additional seats. 

Now that's happened, a waiting list will be set up for any tickets and cancellations.

epic20 Seating Plan Restrictions Lifted

Yesterday we exceeded all previous participant numbers from previous events making epic20 our biggest event to date. 

That has placed some pressure on the seating plan and therefore the restrictions on sitting in either the Portland or Bamburgh rooms have now been lifted so you may now select these areas for any games. 

Note that there will still be 'defrags' taking place over the coming weeks to get teams and groups sat together where possible, but as tickets are sold on a first-come-first-served basis, we cannot promise that late bookings can be accomodated at this stage. 

Please keep an eye on the Fair Isle Defrag forum post for more information. If you are playing as part of a team in one of our tournaments, make sure you have signed up to the tournament site and all set the same clan tag on your main account as it will help us with the seating process.

epic.LAN statement on Recent UK CSGO Events

Following on from a number of recent well-documented issues in the UK CSGO scene, including one at our last event, the following players are now subject to bans from all epic.LAN events:

  • Ben 'krby' Kirby - 1 Year (Cheating)
  • Joseph 'Joee' Leigh - 2 Years (Cheating - VAC Banned)
  • Charlie 'K1NDEADLY' Weber - 2 years (Drug Use)

These bans will be for a minimum of the periods identified above and will be reviewed at that time. 

While the cheating incidents did not occur at our events, we are working closely with other UK eSports operators to apply consistent bans in order to encourage fair play at UK tournaments. In the case of "K1NDEADLY", there is a clear admission of breaking our event terms at epic.EIGHTEEN and we must show a zero tolerance approach. 

Jon Winkle, epic.LAN Managing Director, issued the following statement:

"We must be absolutely clear in our stance when it comes to use of illegal substances at our event, we will not accept it and anyone involved will be removed and banned from future events. If we find that others were involved in this particular incident or any other in the future of a similar nature, the same punishments will apply. In terms of cheating, whether this takes place at our events or at other UK events, cheaters are simply not welcome at epic.LAN and we're going to follow the good examples set by ESL and Multiplay by applying these bans to our event too."

Furthermore, we will be taking this opportunity to review our code of conduct for our event participants to improve the quality of the event and tournament. This will include, but not be limited to, areas such as cheating, substance misuse, timekeeping and abuse towards other participants and event staff.

EPIC Gaming Chairs on the Central Stream

The Central Stream is going to look pretty elegant at epic.EIGHTEEN thanks to the kind support of noblechairs who will be sending along a selection of their new EPIC Gaming Chair series (sounds like a perfect match for something to display at epic.LAN right?) for use on the central stream and for all of you to check out as you pass through the Gallery at LAN. 

The Central Stream broadcasts a range of gaming activities from the event, including casual gaming, interviews, members of the #epicstreamteam, the pub quiz, Joeshow's "Breakfast & Chill" and much more. You can find the stream externally on twitch.tv/epiclan throughout the LAN or locally through the event intranet, so make sure you tune in from this Thursday.
