After months and months of putting the footage together and of course having attended the CGS combine only to experience the crishing heartbreak of not being drafted, the movie charts his rise as one of the best players in the UK scene. The title, “Almost Famous”, is a nod to his experiences at CGS and how close he came to becoming one of the first UK pro CSS players.
Finally being able to combine the best of both worlds I have decided to stand down from my duties as Zboard manager to focus on the development of xciteuk as both a team and a brand. I was blessed to have spent so much time in the company of such a great team, a great sponsor and a great ambassador of the the game in the form of ben0. With my new found CGS commitments I really had to make a decision and Zboard is in good hands with its current management team, so it makes sense to part ways on the best of terms. Thanks to all for the opportunity.
After much behind the scenes tweaking we are happy to announce we have launched our own public server. This is thanks to our long standing collaboration with our freinds at UnitedSteamArmy and gumpcom.
xciteuk – Live The Dream 75 tick public server:
As some of you may already know I was at the recent i31 event working for Source Junky. While there I got quite close to the team Zboard, a few of whom I knew from their xciteuk associations, and spent a lot of time in their company. Towards the end of the event it became apparent that there was an opportunity for me to become part of the management team and it was one I could not turn down.
I have been the head manager of xciteuk for over about a year now and have always giving everything to the team and the community at large. It is a sad day for me as I was extremely close to all the players and people who used our public servers. But I hope that everyone will understand why I’m moving over to Zboard. Anyone who has read my work knows how passionate I am about creating a UK team that can challenge the European elite. I think we can very much do that with this Zboard team, and I’m going to do everything in my power to make it happen.
Team NME who have been on the fringe of the UK 1.6 scene for over a year and a half have made the move to xciteuk today. Although the organisation had no immediate or pressing plans to take on a 1.6 team, this group of players showed they have the right attitude and commitment to their game and have suitably impressed enough to become the first ever 1.6 team to represent our organisation.
