Madden esports documentary coming to The CW on Dec 27

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

Go behind the scenes of the latest Madden 18 major.

Electronic Arts and the National Football League have announced that you'll be able to watch a new primetime, one-hour esports special about Madden 18 later this month.

The EA Madden NFL 18 Challenge will premiere on The CW at 8pm ET/PT and 7pm CT/MT on Wednesday, December 27, giving you a great opportunity to try to explain esports to your relatives as you collectively navigate the post-Christmas haze.

The special promises to show you what happens behind the scenes at one of the four Madden NFL Championship Series majors, as eight top players compete to win the Madden Challenge belt and part of a $150,000 prize pool.

Of course, if you want to actually watch the Championship Series finals, rather than just sitting through a documentary about them, then you'll want to keep your eyes on EA's channels on December 19-22 as the eight finalists actually fight it out.

Then you can watch the documentary on December 27, ideally spoiling the result for anyone else in the room just when they start to show an interest. Happy holidays!
