cc//UKeSA Season 1 Final Results

ukesa_genericThis weekend our Halo 3, Team Fortress 2 and CounterStrike: Source teams are competing at the UKeSA Season I Finals in London, UK. The online season culminated over a month ago however some delays have meant that we’ve had to wait until now for the finals. Our Halo 3 team have been playing their final match in the Championship, where they came off comfortable winners over to take away the first place prize of £700!

Sunday sees our Team Fortress 2 and CounterStrike: Source teams take on Team Coolermaster in the Semi Finals of the Premiership Division and we will look to provide you with SourceTVs for these matches and live updates from the event from our twitter at www.twitter.com/crackclan

Update: Both our CSS and TF2 teams managed to beat Team Coolermaster with ease in the semi finals before meeting Reason Gaming and Team Dignitas in their respective finals. Unfortunately neither team was able to win but fought two close matches, with the CSS team taking a map off Reason and the TF2 team putting in a respectful performance.

cc//CS1.6 at Dreamhack

cc_banner_cs16This weekend our new Counter Strike 1.6 team was competing at their first international event, as they travelled to Jönköping in Sweden to compete at the world’s largest LAN event, Dreamhack Summer! A 100,000 SEK (€9000) prize fund is on offer and 16 teams, including names such as SK Gaming, Lemondogs (which includes 2 players from Fnatic) and Evil Geniuses’, have been competing for the gold. Our team received a bye into the main tournament alongside free travel and entry to the event by winning the Finish qualifier as rootz, and there we have been drawn in Group C with the highly rated Ukranian team DTS, the Swedish team Aquintra and the Polish Delta eSports, who won the BYOC qualifier. Unfortunately, we only managed to draw our first game against Aquintra after some controversy over an alleged bug defuse which hampered our morale going to our match against DTS where we were outclassed. We managed to beat Delta 16-6 in our final game but it was not enough as we were eliminated on round difference. Our team captain natu has also done a shootout for Symantecs (Norton Anti-Virus) alongside Aurora from Pink Zinic.
