How did UK teams perform at the 2017 Halo World Championship?

Last weekend's $1 million Halo World Championship saw the past year's best teams come together to prove who is superior (and complain about the venue - but that's another story).

Although North American teams dominated throughout, we had two teams represent the UK in what proved to be a fantastic tournament.

London Conspiracy

London Conspiracy went into the tournament as clear underdogs; I doubt anybody had them down as viable winners of even their group, let alone the tournament.

The team of Andrew “Ramirez” Corrigan, Casey “Lunny” Lunn, Christopher “Qristola” O’Keeffe and team captain Rob “SeptiQ” Singleton are no doubt disappointed with their T12 placement, despite their underdog status.

Regardless, they put on a brave face to communicate their feelings to fans over Twitter.

After going 0-6 in map count in Pool Play, London Conspiracy finally managed to take a map from Crowd Pleasers in a 4-1 loss, bowing out of the tournament in Loser’s Bracket Round 1.

FAB Games Esports

FAB had a slightly better tournament, despite still not quite breaking the top six, as was the plan of James “Jimbo” Bradbrook.

He, along with teammates Perry “TuFoxy” Kenyon, Italian Luciano “Mose” Calvanico and team captain and Brandon “Respectful” Stones, finished in the top eight, after being knocked out of the tournament by a very strong Splyce side who even managed to take Str8 Rippin to a game seven.

As well as Splyce, fabE also came up against eventual winners OpTic Gaming and Str8 Rippin throughout the tournament, so there is no doubt they could have gone much further had they been given easier match-ups.

Here is one of fabE’s finer moments of the tournament, taking the surprise CTF win against Splyce:

Despite the seemingly poor placings, both teams should be proud of their performances.

Whilst NA persistently dominates console esports, London Conspiracy and FAB Games came out this weekend to prove why the UK is not going to give up any time soon in their quest for Halo glory.
