Another year has run past us and it’s time to take a look at what has happened in the last 12 months – Our recap of 2017.
The year 2017 was quite exciting for us in many ways as we picked up teams and players in several games for the first time in the history of Wolves eSports that delivered and soon will deliver new experiences for all of us. It’s been the second year after our decision to put a lot more time and effort in Wolves eSports and we’re more than happy to say that the year was a great year for us. Sure, we haven’t been able to achieve all the goals we set ourselves for 2017 but we certainly learned a whole lot of things during the process that we are going to use in our advantage in 2018.
January 2017 was the comeback of two games that we’ve already seen as a part of Wolves eSports, DotA 2 and World of Tanks. The new game, or rather game mode we signed a team for was FIFA Pro Club. As we picked the team up, they’ve already been sitting on top of the league and kept that position until the end to be promoted to the second highest league in the FIFA ProLeague. In February, we started the next big adventure with a team in Paladins. Later on, the team then came close to qualifying for the Paladins Masters LAN which still saw several of our players standing in for other teams. We rounded up the month of February with another return of a game to Wolves eSports – namely Heroes of the Storm. Last but not least, we started our weekly Hearthstone cup series on StriveWire for Hearthstone Championship Tour points with great success.
March 2017 and April were rather quiet months in terms of announcements as the only things happening were an agreement on a partnership deal with StriveWire in March, while we said goodbye to the FIFA Pro Club team. May 2017 was a rough month as our Paladins team, back then considered to be Top4 in Europe, moved on to Burrito Esports. However, we are still strongly interested in the game and wish to re-enter the scene in 2018. May also meant the arrival of two CSGO teams – a German team, and a British team. In the following months we ventured into new games for Wolves eSports quite a lot with Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, Vainglory, SMITE, and recently even picked up a team in WarCraft 3. Apart from quite a few additions, we’ve also seen teams leave and change more than we hoped for which is something we want to work on for next year. With our current lineup of teams and players in CSGO Germany, SMITE, Vainglory, DotA 2, WarCraft 3, Hearthstone, FIFA 18 and Super Smash Bros we’re looking forward to 2018 from a teams perspective. From a business point of view, we’ve worked a lot recently and have a few announcements and changes to make in early 2018 so we’re stoked about those things as well!
That being said, 2017 was a year full of learning and growing in the ways we handle things with a lot of great memories, but also a few bad ones. However, we feel like we were able to learn from them and can’t wait to continue working with our teams and partners, especially Gamers Apparel in the new year. Some great things are coming up as well and we can’t wait to share them with you.
Until then we wish all of our fans & followers, teams, players, and partners a Happy New Year! We’ll see you soon!
