Welcome to UK League Chat, a podcast focused on the UK League of Legends scene. Listen in to get the views of experts from the scene, from Esports journalists to the players themselves, on tournaments such as the NLC, UKLC and EU Masters.
This episode sees Lee and Tom joined by Godsent duo Cboi and Mikmer. The jungler and mid laner were part of a roster picked up by the NLC organisation after qualifying for TES Denmark and went on to defy expectations to reach the playoff stage.
The Danes explain how they had expected to perform in contrast to the negative predictions being made by others, as well as looking at group strength, their playoff run and thoughts on the league’s first split.
Also on the agenda was the ongoing EU Masters group stage (where NLC champions Fnatic Rising are still in the running), looking into who is playing best so far and could go on to win the tournament.
