Lionscreed win NLC as New Meta hosts watch party

It was a final to remember as an in-person watch party took place at the New Meta Gaming Arena in North London, in a match dubbed ‘El Nashico’.

Lionscreed’s main team – Banderas, yoHan, Tempt, jinjo and Kasing – went into the match having topped the regular season table with ten wins and four losses, before beating Nord 3-2 in the upper bracket final to face Lionscreed in tonight’s final.

Ruddy Esports, meanwhile, pulled off a miracle run winning ten games in a row to secure their place in the final. Their roster – Built, NattyNatt, Alix, Silkysmath and justcan – took the first game against Lionscreed tonight, before LC won the next three to secure victory.

Tonight’s result means LC secure a spot in the EMEA Masters main group stage, while Ruddy will progress to the play-ins.

LC top-laner Banderas said: “We beat Ruddy 3-1 and we are now in the EMEA Masters group stage, second time I’m NLC champ and this time with the strongest roster I have had so far.

“I can’t wait to surprise EMEA teams.”

Tempt also won the season MVP award:

Ruddy co-owner DonJake added:

To have two UK League teams emerge as the best in the NLC out of other UK, Ireland and Nordic teams, and reach the EMEA Masters, is brilliant for UK League.

The news comes after Lionscreed’s CEO told Esports News UK at the start of the year here’s ‘here to build a business and better the scene’.
