We’re all about celebrating grassroots achievements here at the British Esports Association, and on the weekend the UK Overwatch community had reason to celebrate.
Luke “iuKeEe” Dainton, British Esports Association’s Overwatch adviser and coach for Ex-Cyclone, has seen his team pick up victory after victory of late.
On the weekend they qualified for the TakeTV Takeover 2 tournament, which takes place at the TaKeTV studios in Krefeld, Germany from June 1st to 4th. The tournament will feature eight Overwatch teams and a $50,000 prize pool.
Ex-Cyclone qualified without dropping a map.
Pretty crazy to think we didn’t even drop a map yesterday, a long month ahead of us now to prepare for the best talent across Europe!
I actually couldn’t be prouder, how much hard work everyone has put in and how it has paid off, everyone has stayed loyal to the team
despite the crazy poach offers we’ve received in the last couple of months. I can’t wait for our future, thanks for your support <3
Ex-Cyclone also won their fourth consecutive monthly of ESL GO4 this week.
Ex-Cyclone has a mix of European players, including British player Isaac “Boombox” Charles as well as manager Callum “Showerg3l” Booth. You can see their full roster here.
In other Overwatch news, Stylosa, numlocked and Kruise have formed the UK committee for the Overwatch World Cup, and will select the UK team that takes part in the tournament.
