Dom Sacco rounds up some of the UK esports/League of Legends memes that have spawned on Twitter so far this year.
I know, I know. What the hell happened to Memes of the Month?
I’m not sure. Maybe there were too many memes to include, maybe there weren’t enough. Maybe I was lazy. I just never got round to keeping on top of this one.
To say sorry, here’s a special bumper meme roundup looking at some of the spicy memes that emerged on Twitter in the first half of 2017.
Don’t mess with the Tridd
UK caster Tridd got a great gig with Supercell for the Clash Royale Crown Championship this year.
And got to swing a giant hammer around.

It’s not UK scene but it’s too good not to include.
Origen put out a strange graphic to announce they signed WAR’s roster, and the community ridiculed it.
Other teams made their own mock/troll versions – you can see some in the Twitter thread above. Of course, the UK’s own Enclave Gaming got involved too!

Turkinator’s ticking off
If you get cocky in the UK scene, expect to have memes sent your way if you don’t play as well as you said you would…! More info here.

Radix top-laner Kirito got the attention of the UK scene after tweeting saying that the UK LoL scene is basically ‘free money’.
Turns out he is a good player, and was just doing it for the banter, hype and lols. He’ll fit in just fine here.
UK Masters bingo

A great bingo card made by UK support player Prosfair to play with during UK League of Legends tournaments.

Less of a UK-centric meme and more of a current/LoL one in general, washed up UK jungler Tyrin made the following:
