TeamCRG have triumphed at epic.TWELVE over TLM with a 16-7 score in the grand final, taking home the first place prize of £750.
epic.TWELVE took place this past weekend in Kettering, United Kingdom where nine teams gathered to fight for a £1,000 prize purse. While most of the teams were mixes, most notably Joshua "steel" Nissan's and Brandon "weber" Weber's The Not So Lovely Men, there were a couple of teams who also took part in the recent EMS One Katowice UK Finals such as TeamCRG and TLM.

The top two seeds, TeamCRG and TNLSM quickly reaffirmed themselves as favorites after flawless group stage campaigns, after which the tournament entered a double elimination best-of-three bracket.
However, while TeamCRG made it to the upper bracket final with ease, Nissan's team lost to TLM in the semis (16-13 on de_inferno, 16-8 on de_cache) and were sent to the lower bracket. TLM then put up a great fight against TeamCRG in the upper final, but ended up losing 2-1 (14-16 on de_inferno, 16-11 on de_cache, 16-12 on de_dust2).
TNSLM got their chance for revenge in the consolidation final, but TLM proved to be stronger once again (8-16 on de_nuke, 16-14 on de_inferno, 16-3 on de_dust2), and they ended up joining TeamCRG in the grand final on stage.
The upper bracket winners had an automatic 1-0 advantage, so they needed to win only one map, which they quickly took care of with a 16-7 result on de_inferno, earning themselves £750.
