It’s getting to crunch time in the UKLC, as one team qualifies for the EU Masters, whilst others battled it out for a place in the play-offs.
As the UKLC rolls on, DarkSpawn Gaming has announced the introduction of Richard Karlsson as an assistant coach, who will be conducting mental training with the players. In light of this announcement, we asked Karlsson for his thoughts on the split so far and what he makes of DarkSpawn’s performance.
Another week down, and yet another week of edge of the seat action in the UKLC. The spot for tower champion has been held by a variety of teams already, showcasing just how close the competition between the UK’s elite League of Legends players is.
The UKLC has thrown up a mixing pot of talent so far, one which has seen four different tower champions already. With DarkSpawn looking to bounce back next week, mid laner Corey Beeley shared his thoughts on the competition so far.
The fourth week of the UKLC has emphasised just how much of an open competition it has been so far. We have seen four tower champions, of which only one has managed to retain after initially taking the top spot. This week, in another turn of events, we saw Diabolus knock off MnM Gaming to claim the tower for the first time. Having previously defended their place as tower champions, last week we saw a shock defeat for Fnatic Rising who were dethroned by MnM, though they couldn’t fortify their hold for long as Diabolus loomed large.
Week three of the tantalising UKLC has passed, one that saw a shock early exit, and for the first time a team maintaining their spot at the top of the tower.
Week two of the UKLC saw a new tower champion in the form of Fnatic Rising, and also saw DarkSpawn Gaming pick up their first win of the competition following a well fought victory over Barrage.
It was another exciting week for the UKLC, as another new tower champion was crowned going into the highly anticipated third week. As for this week’s action, we finally saw DarkSpawn Gaming get off their mark with their first win, toppling Barrage after a stellar performance by Filip “Flirt” Norrstam, who racked up 23.1K Gold in just 47 minutes, leading him to be voted the Unsung Hero by the LVP Twitter community.
This week marked the moment that we have all been waiting for; the beginning of the UKLC featuring our very own DarkSpawn Gaming. The first week saw a number of best-of-1 match-ups of the UK’s finest League of Legends players, which saw a new tower champion crowned going into week 2.
