Epsilon CoD Qualify For Stage 2

CWL 2018

Before Epsi CoD competed at CWL Dallas, the squad had to re-qualify for the second stage of the Global Pro League.

The first game against Tainted Minds went all the way down to a deciding game five where the Australians managed to take the victory, putting the team in the loser’s bracket.

Epsi managed to bounce back with a 3-1 win over EZG Blue and Team Vitality to book their place in stage two!

CWL Birmingham Preview

CWL 2018

After picking up their first victories in the CWL Pro League, Epsi CoD will be in attendance at CWL Birmingham. Taking place at the Insomnia Gaming Festival, the squad have been drawn into Group A, against some top North American opposition. Let’s take a closer look.

Joining us in Group A are defending CWL Champions, Rise Nation. The North American powerhouse will be looking to take home their second championship of the season with a win at Birmingham.

Alongside Rise, eUnited and Echo Fox complete the group. Eunited are on a recent run of form and certainly have the experience to take home the title this weekend. As for Echo Fox, their recent performances have been mixed. Their match against Epsi should be a fantastic watch.

It will be a tough task to make out of the pool but the team are feeling confident heading into the weekend.

Gfinity Elite Series Recap

 

1504362637-gfinitywin

The third season of the Gfinity Elite Series is well underway. Our FiFA, Street Fighter and Rocket League squads have competed in the first two fixtures of the season. Let’s take a look at where they currently stand!

Rocket League

Kicking off the season with a comfortable 3-0 win over Team Ares, EpsiRL looked to continue their great start against Fnatic in week two. They were able to do just that, taking a 3-1 victory to begin the Rocket League season with a flawless record of 2-0 and sit at the top of Group B.

Epsi Rocket LeagueStreet Fighter V

After a disappointing second season, a new-look Street Fighter headed into the third season with plenty of wins on the agenda. Unfortunately, a 4-0 sweep by Fnatic and a 4-2 defeat to Team Ares was not the best way to start the season. We shall be back to our best, as we look to get the first win on the board against Unilad in week three!

Epsi Street Fighter

FIFA 18

With the addition of Dingo to our PS4 division, Epsi FIFA had high hopes of some solid performances in FIFA. Game one against Unilad saw the points shared evenly as Dingo impressed with a victory against Shellz and Mover fell against reigning world champion, Gorilla. In week two, the team were unable to secure any points, falling 2-0 to a strong Fnatic side. A win against Ares in week three will be a big step forward as we look to move towards the top of Group B.

Epsi Dingo FIFA

Heading into the latter stages of the season, we hope that all three of our teams can secure a place in the playoffs at the end of the season!

Gfinity Elite Series – Week One Recap

 

This past weekend, the opening week of the Gfinity Elite Series took place. Let’s take at how we got on in FIFA, Street Fighter V and Rocket League.

FIFA

Epsi FIFA would kick off their season against a strong Unilad team. Game one saw Fully take on reigning world champion, Gorilla. With the early aggression, Gorilla looked to break the deadlock early but failed to convert. Fully managed to sneak through the defence to score the first goal of the game. A late goal for Fully wrapped up a big victory over one of the best in the world.

Next up, Dingo would face Shellz on the PS4. Two quick goals from the Unilad player sealed the deal for the opposition, making the series a 1-1 draw.

Rocket League

A new look Epsi RL team began their campaign against Ares. A phenomenal performance from the squad saw them secure a swift 3-0 victory, only conceding one goal in the process. They’ll be looking to continue their great start of the season in week two, where they will face Fnatic.

Street Fighter V

The Street Fighter squad started their season against newcomers, Fnatic. Keftaroz kicked off the series against Brick, but Brick managed to take the game and the early lead for the opposition. Game two would see Kuja take on Akainu. Akainu fully utilised the sonic booms to take round one but Kuja responded in the second, landing Abigail’s special to close out the round. A back and forth third round went in favour of Akainu and the squad were now 2-0 down.

Takamura would do battle against Shakz in game three. Takamura managed to take the first round before Shakz shifted the momentum, taking the next two. We now needed a reverse sweep if we were to take victory.  Takamura stayed on to take on Akainu. Unluckily Akainu was too strong and won the game in convincing fashion. Fnatic took a 4-0 victory, handing us our first loss of the new season.

Despite the loss in Street Fighter, it was a good start to season three of the Elite Series. Bring on week two! Don;t forget to show your support on social media using #EpsiWin
