Partnership with StriveWire ends

By | News | No Comments

After we agreed on a partnership with StriveWire in March 2017, we’re now announcing that this partnership has come to an end.

With the recent changes made to the Hearthstone Championship Tour cups, we’re unable to continue our cup series. We thank StriveWire for enabling us to do that in the first place and wish them all the best in the future. Both StriveWire and Wolves eSports continue their journey in Hearthstone and for us that means we have at least one player attending Dreamhack Leipzig which is the next big thing we’re looking forward to.

Recap of 2017 & a Happy New Year!

By | News | No Comments

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!

Wolves eSports Community Discord

By | News | No Comments

We thought about launching a Community Discord for quite some time now and after Discord released channel categories we thought of ways to make it happen – and here it is!

Our official Wolves eSports Community Discord is meant to be another media outlet for people interested in Wolves eSports and friends of ours. We’ve created news channels for all games we have teams in that will feature updates on matches, leagues, and general news about our teams. If you want to talk about other eSport titles or games that you like to play – we have the channels for it! Our management, and most importantly, our players are going to be there as well to allow for communication between Wolves and you via text and voice channels. We would like to give this project a try and see where it takes us.

In case you join the Discord, please make sure to read the rules and if you have any feedback regarding our Discord server, do not hesitate to contact us through the means mentioned in the #welcome channel.

Wolves eSports minus 2 Teams

By | News | No Comments

It’s been a while since we published a news on our website and we certainly don’t do it with a happy face this time around. Our former CSGO.uk team decided to part ways with us after just one season of ESEA Intermediate filled with lineup changes and struggles. We were looking forward to the new season with a working team but unfortunately, they decided to move on to pursue other options.

The second team to leave Wolves eSports as well is the DotA 2 lineup. The team disbanded and the remaining players don’t feel like building a new team again. Sad to see as the new season for the joinDota League was recently announced and we were already looking forward to it.

And the last change regarding Wolves eSports players sees a departure of Hearthstone player Albert “Trebzilla” Sillem.

We wish all of our former teams and players all the best in the future. We’d also like to say that we are looking for new teams in those games again.

Wolves Weekend Recap

By | News | No Comments

Last weekend has seen quite some action for Wolves eSports and our players in different games with equally great results – Time for a recap. We’ve had Benjamin “wusi” Baye attend the Albion 2 Super Smash Bros event in the United Kingdom, the new DotA 2 team play the ESL Go4DotA Europe #118, our FIFA players in the FIFA Sunday Madness Cup Germany, and last but not least our Hearthstone players battle it out for the top ranks in June’s EU Ladder.

Super Smash Bros.:
The United Kingdom, more specifically London, was the goal for our smash player Benjamin “wusi” Baye to attend the Albion 2 event. Filled with great players from all over Europe it was meant to be one of the bigger events this year and with 308 participants in the Singles competition it certainly has been. With a 7-1 set record and 15-3 games he took first place in his group to move on to the 64 player bracket. There, he went on to the Winners Quarter-Final where he went down 0-3 against Glutonny, who then went on to win the event. Wusi however managed to reach the top 8 through the Lower Bracket, finishing the event on a great 7th place.

DotA 2:
The debut appearance for the new Wolves eSports DotA 2 team was the ESL Go4DotA Europe Cup #118 where they managed to reach the final in a breeze to face “Team Moriarty”. The final opponent however was a mountain they’ve not been able to climb after the early game was decent and both teams were even. Still, great performance in their first tournament for Wolves.

FIFA 17:
The weekly German Sunday Madness Cup has seen two Wolves fight for glory on the pitch and with Sebastian “iBastinho” Holsten & Alexander “alexklarman” Schmausz both of them reached the quarter finals where Alexander lost his match to finish 5-8th. Sebastian managed to win the cup in a final where he faced GOOKU who has some decent results in the German Championship and the 2016 ESWC under his belt.

Hearthstone:
The monthly ladder came to an end during the night from Friday to Saturday and one of our players, Albert “Trebzilla” Sillem, finished it on a good 11th place, netting him 8 Hearthstone Championship Tour points.

We surely hope that all teams and players can keep up their great performances in the future! GGWP this weekend!

The Year 2016 for Wolves eSports

By | News | No Comments

The year 2016 is nearly over. With just some hours left we want to take a look back at it.

During the last year we’ve had ups and down, just like everyone else. Even though this year was the first one after we decided where we want to be with Wolves eSports in the future and we mainly worked on getting the foundations done, it was a decent year for us. With Gamers Apparel we managed to get the first big partner for Wolves in February. We published our new homepage in May and went on to pick up some talented teams over the next few months. With expeditions into S.K.I.L.L Special Force 2, Combat Arms, and Crossfire we tested the waters in smaller games that are not part of the mainstream eSport titles. We went over the pond to pick up a North American Rainbow Six: Siege team which in the end didn’t work out as we all hoped. For a short period of time Wolves even had a console team as well.

Our first tournament win however comes from our old Trackmania guys who went on to win the ESL Trackmania Canyon Endurance Premiership Season 2 where they faced tough opposition in players from Team Dignitas or Euronics Gaming. The final race was a nailbiter until the end but we managed to pull through. It took some time to see Wolves eSports win a tournament again but when it happens, it happens three times in a row as Benjamin “wusi” Baye from our Super Smash Bros roster wins three consecutive events in a row. To be fair, Smash in general delivers great results whenever they participate but winning three in a row is extremely strong! Congratulations again!

Towards the end of the year we picked up an Overwatch roster which managed to get to the semi-finals of the Reddit EU Championship where they put up a fight against Oslo Lions but fell short in the end. Wolves eSports also merged with Actin eSports and acquired squads in Hearthstone and FIFA that hopefully bring joy to the Wolves family in 2017.

Looking ahead at 2017 we hope to keep up the results as they have been in the second half of 2016 and to strengthen the presence of Wolves eSports in the scene with additional teams in different games. Unfortunately, there’s also have bad news for the start of 2017 as NoScope Gaming Glasses, a partner we’ve had for a year now, officially closes their business with the end of 2016.

To sum it up: it has been quite a ride. We are happy with where we are at now but we are confident that we can further push Wolves eSports in the upcoming months as we have some things lined up!

Finally, Wolves eSports wishes their fans and followers, as well as everyone involved with our project a Happy New Year! See you soon!

Wolves eSports merges with Actin eSports

By | News | No Comments

Wolves eSports merges with Actin eSports!

With the year 2016 coming to an end we made sure to be in the best possible position for a succesful 2017. We have been in contact with the management of Actin eSports for some time now and after the first talks a couple of months back both sides knew that sooner or later Wolves and Actin would find together. In the last few days we sat down and talked about the possibilities of a merge that both sides can be happy with. We here at Wolves do know that we still have a long way to reach our goals and we certainly know about our weak points. Actin eSports is able to cover some of them while we can provide things Actin would have to work on in the near future. Wolves eSports is confident that the merge between actin and Wolves is a huge step in the right direction as we can combine our resources to make the year 2017 a good one for Wolves eSports.

This merge also means that Actin eSports ceases to exist as their management, their Hearthstone and FIFA sections join Wolves eSports. Both games  return to Wolves eSports after quite some time and we are excited to see where it takes us in the future.

Statement Patrick Freier, CEO of Wolves eSports
“Wolves eSports is excited to announce the newest addition to our pack. With the adoption of the management of Actin eSports and their two teams, namely a FIFA and a Hearthstone squad, the Wolves prepared themselves for a successful upcoming year 2017. The former project owner of Actin eSports joins the Wolves eSports management and we are confident that Fabio will be a great addition to further grow our brand.”

Statement Fabio Coelho, CEO of Actin eSports
“Both organisations complement each other perfectly – just like two puzzle pieces. The management of Wolves eSports is open-minded, qualified and ambitious. Therefore, we are really excited for the merger. Where one way ends, another one begins. For actin eSports the new way is called Wolves eSports and we are looking forward to the upcoming years of cooperation.”
