Final 3 Spots

5 teams have already earned their space at the finals, now it's time to select our final teams. 

We'll be hosting last-chance online qualifiers on Wednesday 26th September and Thursday 4th October from 7pm for teams who have taken part in the LAN qualifiers only. 

Each date will run in a single elimination BO1 one-night cup format with the winning team taking a qualifier spot. Due to the timing, we're keeping it as BO1 throughout, capped at 16 teams per cup, but if the 2 finalist teams want to make their final a BO3 it can be voted for on the night, but we're conscious of finish times for a week-night. 

Lineup Rules

  • The last-chance qualifiers are intended for people who have taken part in the LAN qualifiers, not just an open format. Therefore a minimum of 4 people in the team must have taken part in the LAN qualifiers either in the same team entering, or they can be from another team to form a new mix.
  • Players/teams who have already qualified for the finals may not take part in the online qualifiers. 
  • All players must be over 18 in line with the remainder of the tournament
  • All Steam IDs must be entered in to the tournament site. 
  • Teams can enter both online qualifiers separately
  • Maximum 16 spaces

Once the online qualifiers have concluded, all of the casters and admins from the tournament will cast their final wildcard vote for the 8th team to progress to the final, again, this team will be selected from one of the teams that have taken part in the LAN events. 

The grand finals will take place on Sunday 25th November at Grosvenor Casino Coventry. 

So what's next?

On Sunday we'll see the last of our LAN qualifiers in Reading, with a full 16 teams taking part as we find out who will take the 5th spot, and naturally we've been asked a lot about what's next! 

A total of 8 teams will go through to the finals, they're going to take place on Sunday 25th November, venue TBC soon. So the remaining 3 spots will be allocated as follows:

  • 2 Online Qualifiers - Only open to people who have attended a LAN qualifier as a second chance opportunity. 
  • 1 Wild Card - The admins/casters will select a team that has taken part in one of the previous qualifiers who has shown all around quality and sportsmanship to take the final spot. 

We've decided to lock down the online qualifiers to those who took part at a LAN to give people a second chance, particularly for those who got knocked out early on, and didn't feel it would be fair for 2 teams to take the spaces after everyone else has made the effort to attend one of the live events. 

Dates and details of the online qualifiers will be announced soon, but will likely take place in September. 

Results So Far

Here are the teams that will be going on to the Grand Final later this year:

Qualifier Updates

We've updated some of the tournament information based on questions received so far. We've also confirmed the Manchester (Didsbury) qualifier date as Sunday 29th July. 

Age Restrictions 

Due to the nature of the venue, this tournament is strictly limited to participants aged 18 and over. ID will be required on entry as Challenge 25 is in force at the venues.  

Team Creation & Signup

Once you have purchased your ticket, you need to create your team at grosvenor.epiclan.net for the qualifier you are entering. Teams must be created by 48 hours before the event starts to be considered for seeding. Any teams not complete by this deadline will not be seeded and will be placed into the bracket at random. 

Entering Multiple Qualifiers

Teams may enter as many qualifiers as they wish until they qualify for the finals. Once a team or individual has qualified, they may not enter again.

Qualifying Team Composition

The team that takes part in the finals (date TBC) must be comprised of a minimum of 3 team members who competed in the qualifier. Complete roster changes will not be permitted. Should a team not be able to attend the finals, the admin team will select a replacement from the pool of teams that entered the qualifiers based on performance.

What to Bring

This is a Turn Up & Play tournament, therefore PCs are provided for your use during the tournament. You need to bring your own peripherals for the tournament (keyboard, headset, mouse), these may be inspected by tournament operations staff before you commence your game.

Qualifier tickets cost just £50 per team to enter and due to the nature of the venues, the tournament is restricted to ages 18 and over. 

Jon Winkle, epic.LAN Managing Director comments, “epic.LAN has always provided community level tournaments for esports and recognise that some of the barriers to taking part in esports for new teams are the costs of entry and transport. That’s why we’re really looking forward to delivering this new tournament series with the team from Grosvenor Casinos so we can bring esports straight to the community and give more people opportunities to get involved”. 

Callum Scott, Events & Entertainment Project Manager at Rank Group added, “We are very excited about working with epic.LAN. Having played for 10 years I know how hard it can be to get some much-needed LAN experience. We wanted to work with epic.LAN to bring tournaments outside of London, bringing it to the players and helping grow to our UK talent. It’s all about building a starting point for our future world-class teams!”
