Cyclone Set to Take ESL UK Premiership By Storm
Cyclone should be a familiar name in the European esports scene by now fielding two tier-one/tier-two teams in Overwatch, Smite, Hearthstone, CoD. Cyclone has made its mark on the competitive scene in Europe, and continues to grow rapidly. Now, it’s time for the organization to strive for even more greatness, as it moves into the League of Legends competitive scene.
Having already displayed the organization's success in other competitive titles, the League of Legends team is sure to take the UK competitive scene by storm. Cyclone is aiming to make a name for itself this year, as they have already qualified for the ESL UK Premiership, a feat not to be sniffed at. Not only this, but the team is looking to qualify for the UK Masters league, which would even further solidify their place in the UK competitive scene.
Cyclone’s rise in the competitive scene over all their teams is not to be ignored, and they are sure to make the same impression on League of Legends as well. League of Legends is almost the holy grail of esports, and Cyclone will be facing many formidable teams.
Sean "Slak" Matthews, the founder and owner of Cyclone, is really excited that his organization is branching off into LoL. "I'm overjoyed with the pick up of this team," Slak said. "All of the players are extremely talented in their roles, and with the addition of a coach, I can only see success going forward."
Could Cyclone be a contender for the top spot in this year’s ESL UK Premiership? Is it possible for them to reign supreme over the UK Masters? Only time will tell, but one thing we know for certain is that this team is a force to be reckoned with.
Here is the team's lineup:
Top: Kallon “Kerberos” Ram
Jungle: Liam “Demo” Milburn
Mid: Matt “Noncehunter” Faulkner
ADC: Felix “Laatch” Melin
Support: Kamil ‘Kamilius1” Košťál
