AOC Monitors and Razer partner with ESL UK and epic.LAN for the UK Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Challenge, seeing up to £4,000 of prize money available to participating teams.  The competition, due to take place at the thirteenth instalment of the gaming and eSports LAN series epic.LAN, is to feature a UK eSports first, a remote studio broadcast with on-site camera crew.

“It’s a exciting to be developing eSports in the United Kingdom by creating content that is normally reserved exclusively for traditional sporting mediums”, explains Peter Mather, Community Manager for ESL UK. “We couldn’t be breaking these boundaries without the support of AOC Monitors and Razer, and it’s great to be working with companies that want to help us push eSports past the perceived norm.”

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
