Guys from EGL are good folks and if you live in the UK/Western Euro area, I'd try to get some teams together and get out there.
Thanks for making this squid.
Any questions please feel free to ask in this thread.
This is open to players of all nationalities btw, players from outside of Europe can attend if they wish to
This is a separate event.
Manchester is incredibly easy to get to. It has excellent transport links to most parts of the UK and sitting on a train for a couple of hours isn't that difficult.
@munnsy, would your team still be interested in attending ? Im sure it cant be that hard to find a 4th player
