LoL Avengers Assemble
Esports News UK’s very own Megalodontus came up with this one following Phelan’s impressive run of form (and before they were knocked out by Excel):
For tonight’s #UKLC gauntlet match, I’ve prepared a special meme ?

Beeley the beautiful
Enclave’s meme master Beeley looked to be in form over the summer. Introducing Bahri – a bastardized hybrid of the popular League champion Ahri and Beeley himself. No other words necessary.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Bahri!@BeeleyLoL

Desperate times call for desperate measures
Here’s one from Phelan player Shiklin. Even when they dropped Xizzel as starting top, Shiklin (as the sub) was still not put in and was instead replaced by a new signing, so he made this meme to mark the occasion. This was made just before the tiebreaker with Nvision, when Beartree was unable to play as he was on holiday.

Wholesome Area 51 memes
Enclave produced a UKLC-themed meme in the style of all those ‘storming Area 51’ memes from earlier in the summer:
And the esports society at the University of Hertfordshire also got on board with some alien Area 51 antics:

Phelan when they decide to start playing
Phelan might not have been the best in the regular UKLC split, but when it came to the gauntlet, they were a team transformed.

Phill’s amazing technicolour dreamcoat
No words needed.
Was worried this was going to look like trash on stream, but, I think it looked pretty good? pic.twitter.com/REHVmjMAfD

Duck meets Duck
Forget boy meets girl. UK CSGO content creator Duck meet himself on Tinder the other evening – and made the mistake of sharing it with the world.
Maybe Tinder’s trying to teach Duck a lesson about loving himself? Who knows.
…so I’ve somehow managed to match myself on Tinder
LS reads Esports News UK?
LS used an image based on the drumming film Whiplash to advertise his stream the other week, and it was eerily reminiscent of an image Esports News UK used to cover that time when UK League support player Prosfair bought some coaching from LS…
