Epsilon Esports have become the number one seed in the Halo World Championship UK qualifiers, after beating rivals Team Infused 3-0.
They are now top of the Halo 5 UK ladder with 17,080 points, ahead of Vibe, Infused, Excel and Exertus, who make up the rest of the top five.
This puts Epsilon in the best position going into the UK Championship Finals, hosted by Gfinity, which takes place next week from Friday January 15th to Sunday January 17th 2016.
Epsilon took the first game against Infused in Strongholds mode, with a convincing performance, taking 100 points in the king-of-the-hill-style mode.
Game two was a Slayer match – and a lot more even from the off, with both teams tied at seven kills each after a few minutes in.
 

“Epsilon Snipedrone started very impressively in game three. He actually threw a grenade at someone’s face to finish them off, before the grenade even had a chance to explode.”

 
With eight minutes to go, the scores were tied at 18 kills each. Infused’s TuFoxy picked up a killing screen soon afterwards, thanks to some skillful play with the rocket launcher.
With five minutes to go, Epsilon were five kills ahead, with 35 overall to Infused’s 30.
Epsilon eventually won game two with 50 kills to Infused’s 43, and needed to win the next game to take the match.
In game three – Capture the Flag – Epsilon Snipedrone started very impressively with a number of nice plays, putting him on a killing frenzy. He actually threw a grenade at someone’s face to finish them off, before the grenade even had a chance to explode.
Epsilon won the game 3-0 soon after – and the match.


Next week, 16 teams will battle it out for the title of UK and ROI Champion, with a £10,000 prize pool up for grabs and an invitation to the regional finals. The Halo World Championship series has a $2 million prize pool overall.
