Okay we have a bit of a bumper UK League of Legends memes of the month article for you this time around.
There are several reasons for this:
- Multiplay Insomnia 57 happened
- Sasha, Cody and Ped happened
- The ESL UK Premiership group stages concluded
- We’re adding more weird stuff in, on top of the memes
- ManaLight’s Rob Allen just won’t shut up about it
I need more memes in my life right now

One bang at LAN?
Players (and managers) were preparing to get physical at i57 this year…
A wild horde of Tundras appeared
UK eSports veteran Jamie “Tundra” Duthie made his caster debut at i57 last weekend, and Choke’s former jungler made this inspiring piece of art.
He learnt about hot mics…
And Tundra also made the brave move of asking people to Photoshop him.

That really was the tip of the iceberg. Or was it?
Monstrosities of the Month
Sasha, James and Cody went to town this month, producing enough frightening images to give us nightmares for the whole of April, including some truly horrid Cody/Dom Sacco hybrids that should never see the light of day.
ManaLight see the light against Banditos…
Other LAN shenanigans
ManaLight prepares for the final against the Banditos…

Wizzo goes all Easter bunny…
Cody gets up to no good…

Exertus ADC Augustas “Gakis” Ruplys is also a champion hurdler…
Tridd gets excited…
Fangirl harasses keyboard rager…
guy behind us is shouting “fuck off” at his soloq game and furiously bashing his keyboard
