FASTHOSTS TEAMS UP WITH EPIC.LAN TO POWER EPIC26 CS:GO TOURNAMENT

Recommended Posts

Gloucester-based hosting provider Fasthosts have joined forces with epic.LAN to sponsor the epic26 CS:GO tournament this February which will see the prize pool boosted as well as a 12-month match server for the winning team which will be managed by epic.LAN’s game server control platform.

epic.LAN hosts the majority of its online infrastructure with the UK-based hosting company and has a long history of working together going back to 2012 when the companies worked together to deliver two huge online CSS and COD4 tournaments each with 128 teams taking part.

During epic26, epic.LAN will be showcasing the new Fasthosts Bare Metal Server range with online aspects of the event including external CS:GO TV relays and Twitch stream relays to show off their capabilities.

 

The Fasthosts team will also be sending along LAN survival packs for epic26 attendees to power the players as well as the infrastructure.

Jon Winkle, epic.LAN Managing Director said, “As a long-term Fasthosts customer, it’s great to be working alongside the team to improve our online service quality but also to give something back to the CS:GO community who have supported epic.LAN in force over the past few years. Outside of our LAN events, we’re currently working with several clients to deliver online projects utilising Fasthosts Bare Metal Servers and we’ve been seeing some amazing performance results which we will be sharing soon.”

Catherine Grayson, PR Manager at Fasthosts adds, "Fasthosts is very excited about supporting epic.LAN this year. Not only is this an exciting event to be part of, but working with the epic.LAN team is a great opportunity for technical event organisers and gamers to find out how we can support them, from dedicated to bare metal servers. I’m really looking forward to attending next month and reporting back on the success of the event."

epic26 takes place from 7-10 February at Kettering Conference Centre, tickets are available at www.epiclan.co.uk. Find out more about the technology being used for the online services at www.fasthosts.co.uk/cloud-servers/bare-metal-servers.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
