The dust has settled on the first Battalion 1944 LAN competition. Taking place at the NEC in Birmingham, the world’s best Battalion teams were in attendance to win their share of the £10,000 prize pool and the unique in game skins.
The competition began on the Friday with a group stage for the 8 teams present. The competition proved too fierce and our team went 1-0-6, finishing 7th for the seeding and resulting in a disappointing day.
Subsequently, our Saturday began with a Best of 3 game with Penta, one of the favourites for the tournament, the games were hard fought but we dropped into the lower bracket. There, we came up against team Viral whom we had had one of our closest games with the day before. Unfortunately, the team couldn’t get over the line and we were duly knocked out in the 7th-8th positions.
The team are taking a short break to evaluate and seek answers to what went wrong. We certainly learnt a lot, so expect us to be back for online cups and competitions shortly. In the meantime, enjoy EpN’s highlight against Avenue.
