Around the CGS era, roughly 2008, UK teams dominated the CSS scene before VeryGames featuring shox, krL, mateOo, RpK and SmithZz ventured the scene and started dominating everyone else. Frenchmen in different lineups continued the domination up until very end when mousesports featuring RattlesnK, Mx, pt, Hughsy, RE1EASE won the last CSS major tournament before CSGO was launched.
Even then, mouz kept the team and in the meantime they picked up the Norwegians StingeR and prb instead of Hughsy and RE1EASE. That team, during the time when NiP steamrolled everyone took them to a 16-14 match in DH winter 2012 on mirage, while doing so many unexplainable mistakes that cost them the game.
Despite that, mouz.uk marched on to secure top3 in that tourney (having another 14:16 loss on d2 vs NiP).
After the tournament, mouz kicked the uk squad for a new german squad that did absolutely nothing.
That was the last time we've seen a British team playing a major role in CS scene, Rattlesnk and co spent a brief period in Anexis but without any significant impact.
Just an anecdote about UK scene

Xek (former m5 player) invented double duck walk in cs 1.6. Thats why it was then called "Russian walk"
If I remember correctly, weapons dropped around the map stayed around until the next round. This was in a very early beta of CS.
