So What Is It?

We've all missed events so much, we've decided to launch a new one! Introducing the EPIC.LAN Tabletop Edition. 

This event is something we've wanted to try for some time, but the whole global pandemic thing slowed us down. But after we found a new venue for our July event, one thing led to another and we've decided to launch our pilot tabletop event at our Coventry outpost this August.

epic30 Update

Following on from the recent announcement from the Prime Minister and further clarity from the UK Government on Monday meaning that hospitality venues cannot open until July 4 at the earliest, we’ve taken the difficult and perhaps expected decision to cancel the next physical event and change epic30 into an online format.

BUT, we feel that at these times, it’s important to make sure something still happens over the epic30 weekend (2-5 July) to bring people together through gaming rather than simply cancelling it, so we’re going to be pulling out all the stops to put on as much of an epic.LAN experience as we can with loads of the things you’d normally expect at our events.

epic.FIFTEEN Casters and Tournament Admins

CoverageCounter Strike: Global Offensive


Ben brings a wealth of experience to our casting lineup here at epic.FIFTEEN as he has previously casted for us at epic.FOURTEEN and has continued his work with activities in the ESL UK Premiership, as well as being on the analysis desk for the UK Premiership Finals back at MCM in May. Meanwhile Mark has been a long time member of the casting community as he famously did work at some iSeries CS: Source events and has also been with us too. Jack will be joining the lineup after he has finished competing in the group stages with his team 27in1 and is one of our fresh faces to the casting lineup as he has done work with FACEIT and online for 27in1 in Counter Strike before.



Steven is probably one of the most complete casters we have ever had grace our events, his knowledge of DotA2 is practically unrivaled and his casting is incredibly in line with top level casters. He had casted for us at epic.FOURTEEN and we welcome him back to our lineup here for our Summer LAN. Joe is one of the few newcomers to our LAN events and is relatively new on the casting stage, so once again after a successful stint at epic.FOURTEEN we welcome him back too. Over the course of the weekend there will be multiple players joining the stream to also help cast some of our quality DotA2 games.

epic.LAN Goes Central!

epic.LAN is very proud to announce our latest addition to our streaming lineup for our next event epic.FIFTEEN.

With various feedback over the last few events we've made the decision to introduce a new concept and stream to our already existing lists of streams that run during the event.

The stream will be known as the 'Central Stream' and will act as a central hub for as many activities that we can cram in during the event and we're not just talking eSports here!

With plans to make the stream relevant to our dedicated eSports fans but also appeal to our fantastic social community. Read on to see what we have in store for the central stream at epic.FIFTEEN

Join The epic.Team!

We're really excited about epic.LAN in 2014, after our great first year of LAN Parties at the Kettering Conference Centre, we can't wait until February to get back and put on some great gaming events for you.

But it takes quite a bit of man (and woman) power to put on the events across our various teams and with some of our plans for 2014, then we need to keep growing the event team to keep making the events even more...epic (sorry).

Everybody on the team, right up to the management, is a volunteer, we all do it because we enjoy it and get a buzz at the end of the whole thing when we see hundreds of you enjoying the LAN. It is very hard work with long hours, but it's extremely rewarding, otherwise we simply wouldn't do it!

So we're looking for some willing helpers in the following areas:

  •     Tournament Team - As our tournaments grow, then the admin team needs to as well and this includes our casters. We are still currently looking for casters for our LOL tournament, so if you have casting experience and play LOL then get in touch!
