Today our CounterStrike: Source team will be competing at the ESL Pro Series Season II UK Finals at the Congress Centre in London. It will be the last event for our lineup as they will be moving on to new pastures after this competition. Last weekend the team placed 2nd at the UKeSA Grand Finals, beating Team Coolermaster 2-0 and then losing to Reason Gaming 2-1 in the final and they will be looking to go one better this time. They kick off at 12.45BST against Fragmasters Toxic, a team who both beta and Mx represented last season when they came 2nd. Toxic attend the event as a somewhat controversial mix as it only includes 2 players who played for them during the regular season, and now includes both HudzG and Pez who played for TCM against us last weekend and missed out on an EPS Finals spot themselves.

Update: After a comprehensive victory over fragmasters toxic we advanced to the finals against Team Dignitas. After taking the first map, de_nuke to overtime we went down 21-17. However the team bounced back to win a tense inferno 16-14 to take the game to a decider. They never really looked troubled on dust2 and put in a strong performance to take a 16-7 victory and with it the title of the ESL Pro Series UK Season 2 Champions, a cheque for Â£5000 and the trophy!
