Luke “Crafty” Craft competes on the Xbox One and is one of three British players who have qualified for the 2018 FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final. He is certain to have the crowd behind him in London and will hope that gives him an advantage in his quest to defy his 14th seed and secure the title in his home country.
“Crafty” secured qualification for the Grand Final after competing in the Last Chance Qualifier. A good run in the online event earned him a spot at the Global Series Playoffs, and after making it through the Swiss-style group stage, “Crafty” put on a defensive masterclass to defeat Millenium Team’s Nathan “Herozia” Gill 3-0 in the last 32 of the knockout stages, and seal his Grand Final spot.
On his biggest competition at the Grand Final, “Crafty” said:
“He may not be my biggest competition as such, but I’d like to get a win against “NRaseck” at an event as he’s beaten me every time we’ve played so far this year.”
