Recap 2019

By | News | No Comments

Another 12 months have passed, another 12 months under the belt for Wolves eSports. This is our 2019 recap.

It’s been an eventful year. We have been at DreamHack Leipzig 2019 with our former CSGO team in February. A fantastic experience with fantastic people we now call friends.

In March, we welcomed Apex Legends as a new game at Wolves eSports but also had to say goodbye to Fortnite, a game that never really took off for us. Wolves eSports CSGO started their 99Damage Liga season with the goal to finally make it to Division 2, which we unfortunately did not achieve.

During the next few months we have come back to Rainbow Six: Siege, had several roster and lineup changes in other games, have seen teams leave and rebuild. Our CSGO rebuild for Season 13 of the 99Damage Liga and ESEA Intermediate happened to be cursed however. Plenty of matches with stand-ins due to rules never allowed the team to pop off and ultimately ended in a disbanded team.

The second half of the year turned out to be the more enjoyable one. More success, more good news.

In August, we revived our Overwatch team who then moved on to play the best Open Division Season we have had so far here at Wolves. The new Rainbow Six team rocks the DeSBL Advanced League so far, we finally ventured into Rocket League for the first time and we welcomed two new partners in XOOSE and Skybox.

In December, we picked up a promising Counterstrike team again and can’t wait for them to pick up the action next year.

Our overall ambitions and plans for 2020 are coming along and in just a few days we will continue our grind to make Wolves eSports the best it can be.

From our side, a huge thank you to all of our current and former players for the ride we shared in 2019. Another thank you goes out to our partners and sponsors, current and former.

Thank you for 2019. Let’s make 2020 even better!

Return to Counterstrike

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

After an unfortunate last Counterstrike season in both ESEA and the 99Damage Liga, we are happy to announce our new German team and our return to Counterstrike.

From today on, the team formerly known as “Floppy Esports” will represent Wolves eSports in the 99Damage Liga as well as the ESEA. The team just recently was promoted into Division 3 of the 99Damage Liga and ESEA Intermediate. They are looking to establish themselves there during the next season.

The signing of this team is the start of an hopefully successful longterm partnership in which Wolves aims to develop the team over a longer period of time and to get them into a positions where they are able to challenge the playoff spots in Division 3. The decision to go for a newly promoted team is a change of pace for us but we are confident that is has been the right decision for Wolves eSports in regards to the 99Damage Liga and the German Counterstrike scene.

Lineup Wolves eSports.CSGO:
Niklas “Nikelele” Scherer
Jan “MRLooPS” Strohscheer
Lukas “kLaus” Scherer
Manuel “Kyubi” Krug
Philipp “fill” Müller

Statement Wolves eSports.CSGO:
“We are happy that we are able to represent Wolves eSports in the 99Damage Liga and in the ESEA from today on. After our promotions to Division 3 and ESEA Intermediate the goals are first and foremost acclimatation and staying in these new divisions.

Thinking longterm, we aim towards participation in the Div 2-3 promotion tournament of the 99Damage Liga and as the ultimate goal promotion into Division 2.”

Preparations for the new seasons start soon and we hope to make good use of the time we have before we jump into official competition.

Partnership Updates

By | News | No Comments

As of today, Wolves eSports is no longer affiliated with EXZ-Hosting and SUMMACUM due to insurmountable differences when it comes to the terms of a potentially prolonged partnership and other issues we simply deem non-acceptable.

The professionalism in esports is sadly not at the point where everyone wants it to be and some of the issues we faced are also happening on the very top of esports for players, organisations and talents alike. This is something nobody involved in esports should have to deal with.

After endless tries to salvage both partnerships, we have come to a point where we needed to make decisions. Wolves eSports won’t further comment on the issues mentioned as we move on with the plans for 2020, an incredibly busy and important year for us. Taking on our 2020 goals with us is XOOSE, a partner we haven’t had any issues with at all and one we trust in for the future.

Stay tuned for more information about Wolves eSports around the end of the year and in Q1 of 2020!

Rainbow Six Siege – Roster Update

By | Rainbow Six | No Comments

After an eventful and and problematic season, the old team and Wolves have mutually decided to go separate ways going forward. With that being said, we are now happy to announce a roster update and welcome the new team to Wolves eSports.

Shortly after it was clear that we would have to rebuild the team after the season, we started to scout for a potential new team which is when we first found the team we now announce.

Their main focus will be on the DeSBL Advanced League with planned participation of ESL’s and other smaller tournaments.

Lineup Wolves eSports R6S:
Sven “Sven” Mucha
Gabriel “Brandy” Brandstätter
Darien “alvy” Weber
Niclas “Traxz” Kurz
Eric “desinfekt” H.
Jan “Shiido” B.
Emily “Foxy” A. (Analyst)

Statement Wolves eSports R6S:
“We’re very excited to be playing for Wolves eSports! Our main focus to play loads of tournaments such as the ESL and DeSBL tournaments and league where we aim get into the Ultimate League. When were not competing in a league or a tournament we will be practising in scrims. We’re really looking forward to make a name for ourselves playing for Wolves as we have a lot of potential and we’re aiming for the top.”

Having a team in the Advanced League playing under the banner of Wolves eSports is an appreciated step forwards and we can’t wait to see this young team play!

CSGO team disbands

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

While we started the ESEA Intermediate and the 99Liga season with a newly built team and high hopes all around, the seasons itself were a rollercoaster of emotions that resulted in the team disbanding and barely finishing the 99Liga season.

The first few games of the ESEA season the team had to play with stand-ins to comply with the rules. However, a couple of forfeit wins meant that these stand-ins had to be used for much longer than we hoped for and the team didn’t get to play with the intended lineup as soon as we anticipated.

A lineup change forced the team to play with another stand-in and the killing blow was dealt by private issues. In the end, it has been a season to forget in which neither the players nor Wolves eSports can be blamed for how it went down. As the team has disbanded and their season ended, we wish them all the best for their future endeavors.

That being said, we are now actively looking for a new Counterstrike team for the next season.
If you and your team are interested in working with us, please reach out to us via:
Twitter (@wolves_esports)
or
email (andre@wolves-esports.com / patrick@wolves-esports.com)

Requirements:
– German teams: 99Damage Liga Division 3
– European teams: ESEA Intermediate or higher
– Age 18+
– Consistent lineup (~6 months)
– Appropriate and mature behaviour

CSGO team with new roster

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

As our old team disbanded after the last ESEA and 99Damage Liga seasons ended, the only remaining member of that team, Danny “FL!NT” Decker, took it upon himself to rebuild the team for Wolves eSports.

We wanted to continue working with whoever would be left from the old team by giving them a chance to rebuild the team here. It quickly showed that FL!NT will be the only one but he was up for the challenge. The shown perseverance and dedication in the early stages of the rebuild have given us something to believe in and we are more than happy to announce the new Wolves eSports CSGO roster:

Lineup Wolves eSports CSGO:
Danny “FL!NT” Decker
David “da1ve” Moritz
Michel “r0me” Borgmann
Luc “ArroW” Oehmke
Manuel “spn” Stefan
Martin “MJS” Sauerländer (Team-Manager & Analyst)

The team will represent Wolves in Division 3 of the upcoming 99Damage Liga season, as well as in the ESEA EU Intermediate division.

Statement Danny “FL!NT” Decker:
“After the old Wolves lineup disbanded, I was able to find four new players that mesh well together. For me personally, chemistry is an important factor within the team and that everyone is committed to working on improving and achieving our goals. Coming together with ArroW, spn, r0me, and da1ve feels like the right move.

MJS is going to support us in two different ways – as a manager and as an analyst.

During our first season, the focus will be on creating a play style, working on our teamwork and building a decent map pool. The goal is to establish ourselves in the German scene and, further down the line, the promotion into Division 2 of the 99Damage Liga.”
