Taken from our sister site, this is the rumour of the week. Late last week, Esports Heaven(.com) reported that Team SoloMid Darkness’ AD Carry, David “t3azer” Berube livestreamed scrimmage matches versus Counter Logic Gaming Black on Hitbox.tv. He then gave VODs of the scrimmages to CLG Black’s upcoming opponent Team Fusion; specifically coach Keaton “Bee Sin” Cryer.

As a consequence of his actions a source close to TSM has inform Esports Heaven(.com) that the team will be released from their current contracts due to the unsportsmanlike behaviour, combined with their terrible run in the NA Challenger Series, currently sitting last with 1 - 7 as their results.

For statements from CLG and Team Fusion, read the full article over on our sister site here:

So where do we stand currently? Lets see!

The current Esports Heaven community series has taken a very brief break while we have done some extensive work on the site itself. This work is scheduled to last another couple of weeks but oh boy do we have some surprises in stall for you all!

I don't want to give too much away yet but we will be expanding into some different games that we haven't touched before as well as bringing back some of our usual favourites. I can't give much more away other than that currently, all I can say is keep checking back on the site for updates regarding the tournaments.

With regards to the site itself you will have noticed things are already a lot tidier as we have removed a lot of the unnecessary functions and clutter. We are also in the process of fixing and adding various functions (my favourite of which is an Inbox and Outbox WITH a reply function!!! Finally haha!)so if you notice things changing gradually around you don't freak out, it's meant to be happening ;)

Moving away from site developments to the tournaments that we have just wrapped up. We have had another ESH Community Series DOTA 2 tournament and interestingly we had a new winner, even with some of the old champions returning to defend their titles.

The top 2 positions were as follows:

1st: Rize - Europe
2nd: BN - Russian.

It is great to keep seeing different teams joining in and competing and we can assure you that we will continue to bring you tournaments if you continue to support your game. Congratulations to Rize for taking the top spot in the most recent tournament, we will PM everyone when the next tournament is released.

In the meantime there is another tournament coming your way.... but wait, did anyone hear the familiar sound of a wild Roccat in the distance? No? Im sure I just heard its call! You guys wait here, I will pick up my AWP and for backup my Tec-9 and go investigate. Should any tournaments appear whilst I am gone, be sure to defend the site and defeat all incoming challengers!

Until next week....
The title is self expalnatory with this one but unfortunately it is for a very sad reason. Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans has had a death within his immediate family and therefore is unable to attend. We presume the team have decided to withdraw the full roster due to wishing not to play with a substitue and to offer support to their team captain and long standing friend.

We send our thought to Kevin during this difficult time. It is never easy losing a family member and so our prayers are with the family.

We will keep you posted on developments regarding the replacement team.
With a shift in days for this installment of the ESH Community Series, we have decided to run the tournament on a Sunday as opposed to the usual Wednesday. This is to see whether we can further increase the sign ups as well as allow for more time to run the tournament due to less commitments (work / education) down to Sunday being a day of rest and all.

Now you have no excuses, go get signed up and we will see you on Sunday for some hot DOTA 2 action!

We are delighted once again to be working with G2A.com as they are an innovative platform that offers comfortable and swift access to a wide range of products, such as software activation licenses for Steam, Origin, Xbox Live cards, PSN codes and time-cards for online games at unique prices.

Welcome to the weekly round up once again. This one is actually a little late and incorporates last week and the majority of this week. There will be another round up to go over the remainder of this weeks activities around Sunday / Monday. Anyway, lets crack on!

We have had another ESH Community Series tournament, once again in DOTA 2 and we got to see some of the previous tournament victors battle it out for the title of supreme ESH Community Champion. This was probably due to all the prizes being paid out at the end of last week and the teams feeling pumped for another taste of some G2A gift cards.

The final standings were as follows:

1st: Dz - United Kingdom
2nd: YDT - Russia

With 3 of the previous community tournament winners showing up it was a heated competition and unfortunately for some, with only one winner. Dz returned for their second ESH Community Series victory, putting them at the top of the leaderboard in the recent run of tournaments. We will be announcing a new tournament shortly so keep your eyes peeled and get yourselves signed up. Gift codes will be issued within 48 hours of tournament completion so be sure to sign up quick as the spaces won't last.

For other news check the front page as their have been some developments in the EU LCS surrounding a certain team which could be of interest. Other than that, watch this space for the release of the next ESH Community Series tournament, along with an announcement about another new tournament we will be hosting for one of our partners.

Until next week!

Simply wow!
The title says it all, with Elements having had a shakey start to the Spring split they have decided to make a second change. Krepo, the former support player for CLG.EU and Evil Geniuses, joined the team three days ago in Belgium in their preparations for the sixth week of the LCS. Nyph will be moving into the Coaching position and between the two they should be able to rectify some of the problems within Elements.

Yes you heard correct. After the long period of playing with Froggen in what appeared to be the dream team duo, Elementz have decided to bench Wickd and replace him with former Millenium player Kev1n.

The decision appears to have come after a slight issue with team synergy seems to have appeared. This obviously can't be between Froggen and Wickd but between Wickd and some of the other players, quite what the issues are exactly we are unsure but the decision has already been made.

For the upcoming matches in this weeks EU LCS round we will see Kev1n represent Elementz, something which could be very exciting with the players previous star role in Millenium.
