A big congratulations to Classic Mixup for winning the TF2 tournament!
This final saw both teams (Classic Mixup and Leviathan Gaming) fly from America and this wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding TF2 community. This is the first time in iseries history that we have had any TF2 teams from outside of Europe and we are very happy that they could take part.
Both teams prior to the final won all of their matches, with Classic Mixup and Leviathan Gaming meeting in the Double Elims Upper Final where Classic Mixup won 2-0. Whilst Classic Mixup were favourites to win, both teams pulled off an outstanding performance resulting in the game going into three maps (cp_gravelpit, cp_gullywash and cp_badlands). Leviathan Gaming had a very good defense throughout the three maps and it really could have been anyone’s game. At times, Classic Mixup would wipe out LG’s team causing some very early and quick caps. Leviathan Gaming didn’t so much hesitate as they held a very strong side throughout the game.
Classic Mixup take home £2,500 and Leviathan Gaming take £1,000. Well done to all players who took part and hopefully we will have a bigger TF2 tournament at the next few events!
Today we have the bulk of our tournament finals, starting with Call of Duty 4 tournament on stage at 10am!

As always the TF2 community has outdone itself, not only have they raised over $11,000 in an effort to bring the top American players to the iSeries, but if you take part in the Highlander TF2 fun tournament you’ll get a chance to win some amazing hand crafted medals by our own Will “RuskeyDoo” Segerman!
The tournament is a 9v9 where every player must be a different class! Each member must shine and excel at their individual job to beat the rest!
