Last Remedy Gaming has announced a new all-British League of Legends team.
The organisation was set up a few months ago and hopes to qualify for the next ESL UK Premiership.
It has been holding try-outs for three weeks, and has just revealed its roster, which includes former MnM Gaming top-laner Brandon “GashandSlash” Marson.
The full roster is as follows:
- Top: Brandon ‘GashandSlash’ Marson
- Jungle: Joe ‘Trilipe’ Phillip
- Mid: Joe ‘AguerJoe’ Norris
- ADC: Isaac ‘Radio’
- Support: Chris ‘Carniflexin’ Swain
GashandSlash is no stranger to the UK scene, having played in the most recent ESL UK Premiership (and engaged in some banter with Choke Gaming).
Last Remedy Gaming was formed by joint business partners Louis Green and Grant “Greivance” Rousseau.
eSports News UK spoke to Grant, founder and CEO of Last Remedy Gaming, who was buzzing with enthusiasm about the new team and what they hope to achieve.
He said: “Last Remedy is a very new organisation, formed just a couple months ago by myself, starting with a platinum/gold League of Legends team to practice with, as it were!
“Our short term goal is to qualify for the UK ESL at the next opportunity. We are thinking big, however, with our long term goal to be LCS. A tough ask, but we think it’s possible.”
He added: “We’re extremely excited to be entering the eSports market with a full British roster to start, and we can’t wait to start expanding and growing. I myself find it truly exciting and exhilarating to finally have the chance to run an eSports organisation, and I can’t wait to see how we get on!

“I also want to mention that we plan to be appearing at Insomnia58, especially with League Fest on. Whether we are there for pleasure, or to compete, is still yet to be decided. So make sure to look out for us!”
Is Last Remedy Gaming open to other games outside of League of Legends?
“Certainly,” Grant said. “Once the League team is fully formed and running smoothly, We plan to pickup a CSGO team and an Overwatch team in the near future.
“We also currently have a Rocket League team on the books, but that still needs some work.”
