Twitch affiliate/filthy casual. Spends far too much time replaying 2D platformers, quoting South Park and complaining about the quality of British TV adverts.
There is an ever-growing talent pool in the UK when it comes to Rainbow Six Siege eSports, and it looks to be continuing to make an impact with epic.LAN offering a £3,500 prize pool at epic26. The event will take place at Kettering Conference Centre on 7-10 February 2019.
The announcement was made by epic.LAN in the following statement: : “With the massively growing popularity of Rainbow Six Siege, we’re really excited to confirm that it will be part of our 2019 esports lineup, kicking off at epic26 in February. We’ve been working closely with Ubisoft UK to launch the 5 on 5 PC tournament which will kick off on Friday February 8th, running through to the finals on Sunday February 10th February.”
Right, enough teasing…

Rainbow Six Siege seems to be making healthy progress in the UK, with the RB6 ESL UK & Ireland Premiership recently finishing, as well as a number of epic.LAN tournaments set to take place throughout next year. The prize pool for the February event also has the chance of gaining a bigger prize pool, should more sponsors decide to get involved. With the array of UK-based talent that’s already on offer, it comes as no surprise that the tactical shooter is getting some well-deserved attention.
