Heroes never die – Reviving Wolves Overwatch

By | Overwatch | No Comments

Today, we’re happy to announce the revival of our Overwatch team!

After the old lineup slowly faded into inactivity and disbanded over time, we initially thought we would stay away from the game in the near future. However, we were approached by a former Overwatch player of ours and following a short talk with the team, both sides agreed to team up from now on.

The team will participate in smaller tournaments as well as the Overwatch EU Open Division once a new season is announced.

This is the new Wolves eSports Overwatch team:

Stephanie “freexfly” Drinkgern
Vinzenz “Septo” D. M.
Marco “EvilArts” Sonntag
Gabriel “regiegab” Pelivan
Timo “Karambo” Seikel
Rui Jorge “DizzelDE” N. S.

CSGO team changes

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

We’re sadly in the position where we have to announce that the team in it’s current form will no longer exist after the ongoing 12th season of the 99Damage Liga.

Following a series of events and decisions made by the players, the team will split up once the season is over but continues to play the remaining matches under the Wolves eSports banner. Under normal circumstances we would have kept this private until the end of the season. However, Wolves and the team agreed to go public to allow us for an easier time reaching out to potential candidates to rebuild the team around the remaining players.

With that being said, the German CSGO team is officially looking for:
– Several new players, including an experienced IGL + a deadly main AWP
– Age 18+
– Prior league experience is a must-have
– Able to compete in Division 3 of the 99Damage Liga
– No VAC or League bans

If you are interested, please contact:
Danny “FL!NT” Decker
Steam: FL!NT

——

Additionally, we are also actively looking for a European CSGO team to represent Wolves eSports in European competition!

What we are looking for:
– Solid roster (no newly formed team)
– Age 18+
– No German lineup
– Active in ESEA Intermediate or higher (or other European competition)
– Activity in national competition a bonus
– Willing to commit to a project longterm
– No VAC or League bans

Note: Please include information about the team and your expectations!

About Wolves eSports
Wolves eSports is a German based esports organisation with a focus on the European scene. All of our outgoing communication is done in English and we are not limited to German players unless we explicitly look for an all-German team or staff members.

Currently, Wolves eSports has teams in the following games: CSGO, DotA2, Overwatch, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Rainbow Six: Siege, and Apex Legends. Supporting us are our current partners Gamers Apparel, SUMMACUM, and eXz-Hosting.

Our management combines well over 25 years of esports experience as players, team captains, or in the management. We’ve been with small teams and known organisations alike.

Our philosophy with which we run Wolves is quite different from most other esports projects and we are happy to go into detail about it during a voice meeting. To make it short: We’re an organisation from players for players that values longevity, communication and loyalty a lot. The relationships within the management or with our teams play a huge part of who we are.

Because of a change in strategy in regards to our team structure in December 2018, which means we are shifting our focus from solo player games (e.g. FIFA, Hearthstone) more towards team based games in the future.

New team: Rainbow Six Siege

By | Rainbow Six | No Comments

The last time Wolves eSports had a Rainbow Six: Siege team, it was a team from North America. This time around, we’re happy to announce a German R6S team!

It’s been quite a while since our last engagement in Rainbow Six: Siege but rest assured we’ve had our eyes on the game the whole time. With the new German team, which is going to mainly play in the DeSBL (German eSport Bundesliga), we’re returning to the scene with a team we believe fits our philosophy quite well. The longterm goals of the team align with the longterm goals of Wolves as they are equally as ambitious and we are ready to tackle the hurdles ahead.

Lineup Wolves eSports R6S:
Florian “shn1tzl” Kelz
Julian “KJ” Häusler
Tobias “zIPrxxy” Schäfer
Robin “Robinn” Wolf
Haakon “Sharimu” Woitinek

Gian “zIReepzz”Rasche

Statement Wolves eSports R6S:
“Today we are able to announce that we’ll start the new season as the official Rainbow Six Siege team of Wolves eSports. Our main goal is the promotion in the DeSBL. We’re also aiming at participating in as many cups and tournaments as possible to gain more experience and hopefully achieve decent results. We’re pretty confident that there is no need to hide with a lineup as experienced as ours. We are looking forward to this partnership with Wolves eSports full of anticipation and are ready to show what we are made of!”

Goodbye Fortnite – Welcome, Apex Legends

By | Apex Legends | No Comments

We combine a sad announcement and a happy announcement into one news – revolutionary!

Jokes aside, Wolves eSports and its Fortnite team part ways. The main reason for this is the lack of proper competition after such a long time which has taken a toll on the players. While the start with the initial team was pretty promising and the first results have shown that the team is capable to compete with the bigger names in Europe, the whole competitive situation in EU got worse and worse. Several changes to the roster later, both the team and Wolves have come to the decision to not continue. It has to be said however, that we part ways on good terms and wish all of our former player the best for their future.

A special thank you goes out to Tom “Destin” Mohr, who has been with us from start to finish and has taken care of the team exceptionally well.

Now that we have dealt with the sad part of this post, we’re coming to the good one.

We’re happy to announce our entry into Apex Legends, an up-and-coming battle royale game based on the Titanfall universe by Respawn Entertainment. The new team has played their first tournament under the name of Wolves lately and is going to have a busy schedule going forward. With the German and European ESL Apex Legends tournaments, as well as the Apex Legends Series they’ll have more than enough time to showcase their skills. As a relatively new team they need to build more and more synergy going forward and we’re excited to see how it turns out.

Apart from competing, the players will stream their gameplay on Twitch.tv to try and build their own brand.

Lineup Wolves eSports Apex:
Lucas “Mr_tuneZ” Friedrich
Max “extasZy” V
Paul “LPG” G
Tristan “freshcard” H.

Statement Wolves eSports Apex:
“At the moment there is not much to say as the team just recently assembled. However, the synergy we already have is pretty good. I’m sure we’ll be able to achieve decent results and hopefully work our way to the top in Germany step by step. We’re happy to represent Wolves eSports in Apex Legends from now on! #KeepHowling”

DreamHack Leipzig 2019 Recap

By | News | No Comments

From February 15th – 17th, Wolves eSports Counterstrike: Global Offensive team and the management attended the 2019 edition of the DreamHack Leipzig.

On the esports side of things the DreamHack offered a plethora of tournaments, including the first stop of the DreamHack Pro Circuit, the first of 4 events to take place globally, which featured 32 teams from all over the world and has been the most stacked tournament in Rocket League history. In the end, former world champions Dignitas secured themselves the lion’s share of the $100,000 prize pool.

Other tournaments, such as the WinTheWinter Hearthstone tournament with a prize pool of €9,000 and the “The WinterNational” CSGO tournament with invitees Sprout, expert eSports, Alternate aTTaX and the qualified Unicorns of Love, who battled for a total amount of €11,000, took place as well.

For the Wolves eSports CSGO team, the DreamHack tournament started on Friday evening with the groupstage. The first two matches were won 16-2 against Team Vrzz and Eraise meets EBF, followed by two 16-3 wins against GR-eSports and Alk-Bot. The final match of the groupstage ended 15-15 vs Magdeburg eSports e.V. In the end, the Wolves take first place based on better round score. In the next round against Team Abgebaut, the Wolves started with a fantastic T side and didn’t close the match as fast as it would have been possible, resulting in a 16-9 win. The next round saw us face TouchtheCrown and unfortunately falling short 9-16 to the later-on winners of the DreamHack CSGO tournament.

Apart from the esports tournaments, the DreamExpo offered quite a lot of booths from well-known companies within the gaming and esports industry such as MSI, SAMSUNG, Corsair, and Monster Energy as well as smaller, indie-oriented booths, the obligatory merchandise booths and the DCMM, the German Casemodding Championship. Our personal highlight has been the SAMSUNG booth which offered to wash your tshirts for free and giving out free to keep tshirts for the time your clothes are in the washing machine.

Now that the DreamHack Leipzig 2019 is over and everyone has arrived back home safely, we’re starting to count the days to the 2020 edition of Germany’s biggest LAN which will take place from Jan 24-26, 2019. See you then, Leipzig!

Goodbye Warcraft 3

By | WarCraft 3 | No Comments

Sadly, we have to release the Wolves eSports Warcraft 3 team with immediate effect.

While the times we’ve had were fantastic and we wouldn’t want to miss a single memory we shared, it’s time for us to let go something we deeply care about. With our entry into the WC3 scene 14 months ago we wanted to be a part of a tightly knit community that’s been around for ages in esports and one we’ve always followed throughout the years. With the announcement of Warcraft 3: Reforged, this community received the love it deserves.

Unfortunately, while we were hoping to continue to field one of the strongest European WC3 rosters until Reforged releases, the demands of our players have risen. The sheer amount of dedication, the endless victories and the stories full of success over the last year have been incredible. However, we are not in the position to meet these demands at the moment and won’t be able to continue our Warcraft 3 story in the foreseeable future. Obviously, we will continue to stay up-to-date with the WC3 scene and the players and we certainly would like to come back to Warcraft once the time is right.

Until then, we thank all the players that played for Wolves eSports for their time with us and wish them all the best in the future!
