London Royal Ravens, the UK Call of Duty League franchise team, will be making an appearance at Insomnia Gaming Festival this weekend.

Their pro esports team will be competing on the esports stage and doing a meet and greet with fans, with guests able to win the chance to compete against them.

The London Royal Ravens all-English team consists of Afro, Gismo, Nastie, Zer0 and Harry.

Ravens streamers Jukeyz and Angelika will also be at Insomnia 69 this weekend too. The event runs from Friday August 26th to Monday August 29th 2022.

The news comes after the Ravens finished fourth in the regular standings of the 2022 Call of Duty League, and a few months after Jukeyz won Delirium and Tim the Tatman Warzone tournaments, before completing his ‘See Me in NA’ gaming tour where he faced the US’ best in duos wagers.

Michael ‘ODEE’ O’Dell, London Royal Ravens managing director and chief gaming officer at Ravens parent company Infinite Reality, told Esports News UK: “While we’re doing a lot [right now], we haven’t really done a lot in the UK yet. We’ll be activating at Insomnia Gaming Festival with our partner LG, and our Ravens team of players and streamers Jukeyz and Angelika.

“It’ll be a meet and greet and playing with fans, as the tournaments are over for us now this year, so we’ll be having a laugh with the fans. And we’ll be doing more in the UK [going forward] too.

“I think over the last couple of years, covid has affected everything and it hasn’t got back to normal. Epic.LAN and Insomnia are back now, but apart from them and Psyonix’s Rocket League London Major, there haven’t been people coming back to do [big] events yet, which sucks.

“I think we lack a lot of those big events still, we have the facilities but need to open it up. We need events here, there are UK crowds in pretty much every game, genre and scene, and they are amongst the best in the world.”

ODEE, London Royal Ravens/Infinite Reality

Ravens held a successful Homestand event in the UK just prior to the pandemic in early 2020.

Infinite Reality recently acquired London Royal Ravens parent company ReKTGlobal for $470m. The company also owns Rogue, who field teams in League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege and Rocket League.

Last weekend, Rogue won the Six Berlin Major 2022 with British IGL LeonGids.

While the Ravens team are all British, they train and play in the US, where Infinite Reality has new studios in Long Beach.

“It’s mind-blowing,” ODEE added. “In one studio, we have a 100ft screen, the one they filmed the Mandalorian on. There are six or seven studios overall. The Ravens shot there all day with full-on production and camera crews, there were 40 extras in that, it was amazing. And with the metaverse, it’s mind blowing what we can do.”

Infinite Reality also plan to float on the stock market in the US.
