From June 13th-16th, Epic.27 will take place in Kettering, UK. This is a grassroots bring your own computer (BYOC) event that occurs 3 times a year and holds multiple open esports tournaments including SC2.
You can find details of the event here:
Prizepool depends on tournament signups, but is usually £500/£750, we had a nice boost last event where it was £1000 due to large signup numbers + £750 thanks to Boombox <3
The tournament starts on the 2nd day, so people can use the day before to hangout and practice.
Last Epic.LAN was a special one for we UK SC2 folks not only due to the aforementioned prizepool boost from Boombox, but also because it was the biggest SC2 turnout for Epic.LAN. There were over 30 of us who came for the SC2 and it was a blast as always.
So come along compete in some SC2 and hang out with us all! This event is completely open to anyone, we always have a few international players joining in on the fun. We're a welcoming bunch and are always happy to see new and returning SC2 peeps! There's plenty of other things to do such as drinking at the venue bar, doing the pubquiz, casual gaming/RockBand sessions, getting food together (pizza/nandos/etc), play in the included sports facilities, smash the gym, etc.
Just for this summer event Epic are doing the old layout, so we'll be aiming to sit in Portland seating area again.
There is usually a Defrag (seating rearrangement) when it gets closer to the event as it's done to keep friends/teams together and then those groups are kept in their relevant space (e.g. SC2 player area). To keep you and your friends together be sure to use the same Clan Tag on the Epic site, alternatively you can use the 'UKSC2' clantag if you're teamless and/or looking to sit with other starcraft people with the same tag.
Any queries/issues you can always ask them in the UK SC2 Discord (
https://discord.gg/wkE8NKJ) or the Epic.LAN discord (https://discord.gg/h6GMzZ3)
There are usually volunteering opportunities for Epic event so if you're interested in helping out you can contact the Epic SC2 admin Matt on Discord (Mattscoo#6231)
Any questions, feel free to leave them below.
And if you can't attend, there is usually a livestream for the tournament which will start from 14th-16th June https://www.twitch.tv/epiclan3 give the channel a follow so you know when it goes live
