Here at Esports News UK we’ve been lucky enough to interview some big names in esports, from Richard Lewis to FATAL1TY, Paul Chaloner and more.
But what about those you might have missed, or others you might not have known we’ve interviewed over the years? Here are 10 interviews – a mix of video and written interviews – we think you’d like.
Adam is one of the good guys in UK esports. Endpoint is professionally run and has done a lot of good in the scene so far. They will be taking part in the Gfinity Elite Series and recently moved their Rocket League team into a gaming house.
The only thing wrong with Adam is he doesn’t know much about League of Legends and doesn’t have an Endpoint LoL team. What a heathen.
With millions of daily viewers, Twitch has grown to become the go-to streaming platform. So how can teams, competitions and streamers get the most coverage from it? We asked Twitch’s EMEA partnerships director Chris Mead (aka the face of the MingLee Twitch emote).
Age is just a number, so they say. And Benedict Ward is certainly not letting his young age get in the way of his professional gaming ambitions.
The 14-year-old Brit goes by the name of “MrKcool” in mobile-based MOBA game Vainglory. We interviewed him last year when he competed at the European Winter Championship at just 13.
Australian DOTA 2 caster Toby “TobiWan” Dawson made the move from Berlin to Leicester earlier this year.
Ahead of the Kiev Major group stages on April 24th, we asked TobiWan why he moved to the UK, what he thinks of the casting talent here and how UK esports compares to the Australian scene.

Rekkles needs no introduction. The guy has quickly gone from a League of Legends prodigy to one of the best ADCs in Europe.

Often misunderstood and seemingly loved or hated, you can’t deny Gross Gore is a popular entertainer – and the most well-known British League of Legends Twitch streamer out there.
We had an interesting video chat with Ali last year which you can check out by clicking the link above.
