Gfinity 3 (in terms of prize money) is the biggest CS:GO event the U.K. has ever seen. The great and good from across the globe will be in London for the event being held at the Copperbox Arena in Stratford but unfortunately, due to line-up issues and player holidays, we hadn’t managed to get an fm-eSports team playing in the qualifiers.
This meant that the duty of representing the UK was left to Infused and ex-Rasta who had won their spots in the LAN finals by going through the qualifiers. Sadly having recently parted company with their organisation the latter were unable to gather the support needed to attend the event next weekend and with accommodation and travel arrangements to be made, the teams attendance was in question. Once their position was confirmed, the team approached us to ask if we would be able to help them attend the event. Former fm-eSports TOXiC player, George ‘ZED’ Bear and his team had won the right to attend the Gfinity 3 event and having as many UK teams in attendance obtaining the experience required to compete with the best the world has to offer will only be beneficial for the future of our scene so we’re happy to announce that next weekend, fm-eSports will be represented by the following line-up:
George ‘ZED’ Bear
Jake ‘jakem’ McCausland
Thomas ‘SPUDZ’ White
Craig ‘REAZN’ Brackenridge
Jonathan ‘Sheekey’ Sheekey
The guys will be going into the event free of pressure and full of determination having been placed in a group with Virtus.PRO, Team Dignitas, Titan, ESG and Mousesports. It’s going to be a tough group (hell, getting a few rounds will be nice, let alone a few maps ) but the guys will be giving it all they’ve got and we’re confident they’ll put on a good show for the UK fans.
Returning for a flying visit in fm-eSports, George ‘ZED’ Bear had this to say:
“I am very happy to announce that today I am back in fm-eSports for Gfinity 3, I feel like I am finally back home! Me and my team are all eager to represent such a prestigious and professional organisation and can’t wait to attend the upcoming LAN under the FM banner.
Going into Gfinity we have absolutely no pressure at all which will hopefully allow us to perform well and surprise the community. Our team wants to prove that the UK scene can produce a good team that will, eventually, be able to compete amongst the European teams. Finally I want to say a big thank you to Darren for this opportunity and all of the fm-eSports sponsors, Sapphire, Razer, AMD, Multiplay and Twitch.tv”
