British eSport History[edit]

Britain has produced world class eSport players for many games, such as the old Four Kings Counter-Strike 1.6 team, as well as many good players for Counter-Strike: Source and assorted console shooter titles. However, the United Kingdom's biggest contribution has probably been the well known organizations, in particular, Fnatic, whose main office is in London, Team Dignitas and 4Kings. Recently, new organizations have started to crop up, such as Team Infused and TCM-Gaming.

A few years back, British eSports looked bright, with the incorporation of the United Kingdom eSports Association (UKeSA), which included support from the Government, the Police, and several large industry entities. After its very quick demise, the United Kingdom ended up severely lacking in terms of eSport infrastructure, with few small events being organised around the country. The only exception of which is Multiplay's i-Series, which is by far the UK's biggest LAN Festival.

Early in 2012, the unofficial title of "Best British player" belonged to BlinG after he won 5-4 over DeMusliM in the War of the Roses showmatch. Since then, the two of them have faced off at various tournaments with DeMusliM winning their most recent meetings.
