We look back on another Insomnia LAN event through the eyes of Twitter, rounding up a random selection stand-out pictures, memes and tweets.
(This article is not looking at the winning esports teams or players – check out our i60 winners roundup here if you want to see who won).

You’re gonna go far, kid
While we said we weren’t going to mention winning esports teams in this article, we want to make an exception for Kyle “Scrub Killa” Robertson (pictured, left). The 13-year-old Scottish player showed everyone what he’s capable of at the Rocket League open.
Caster cleans out casino
Tom “Tridd” Underwood had some success at the casino, it seems.
Apparently he was last spotted in a full suit of armour, galloping away into the night with several fair maidens in a horse and cart.
Word is he’s bought his own trebuchet with the winnings.

John tried some memey tweets of his own:
