Qualified Mutliplay UK Masters
Multiplay recently announced their UK Masters tournament which boasted a prize pool of £12,600 with 4 single elimination qualifiers where only the top 2 teams from each qualifier can make it through to the league.
The league format itself will be a best of two format, something that many people have wanted in the UK for quite some time. There was even a vote in the UK League of Legends community for ESL to have a best of two format in their Premiership Season. Multiplay have taken the right step in the right direction by having this format, it gives teams more chances to prove themselves on different maps and more games is more content for the UK eSports scene.
We have had a rocky road leading up to the qualifiers, having fell short in the ESL UK Promotions (via open qualifiers) and having troubles in the qualifiers themselves.
Qualifier 1 | BRACKET | 2nd seed
Round 1 | Cache | MnM vs All5Mid | 16 – 6
Round 2 | Mirage | MnM vs Viperio | 16 – 4
Round 3 | Mirage | MnM vs Playhack | 10 – 16

Round 2 | Mirage | MnM vs HSFactory| 16 – 6

Round 4 | Mirage | MnM vs CeX | 16 – 7
Round 5 | Cache – Mirage| MnM vs Kingz | 2 – 0

After a quiet couple of months we’re back, focused, and motivated to continue improving. The UK Masters is a great opportunity to test ourselves as previously we were only attending LANs
