eSports Wrap-up: We say goodbye to one of our own

It is with a very heavy heart that we say goodbye to a loved and well known gamer that has been a part of the Call of Duty 4 community for a long time. Sean ‘Sniper’ Lancaster had passed away on Wednesday after his struggle with leukaemia.

Sean will be remembered and mourned by his friends. Tjaart ‘LiveR’ Fourie honours Sean on Do Gaming as well as Jayden on Bravado Gaming. There is much to say about Sean, about how he was driven to help improve our gaming community and his positive contribution as a friend to many. But hard to digest that he is now gone. We pay our respects to his family. This is indeed a big loss to us.

I find it extremely difficult to report on everything else happening in eSports this weekend, but here goes nothing.
