ESL Meisterschaft Division 3 is back

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

The ESL Meisterschaft Division 3 has started a few days ago and our Counterstrike: Global Offensive team heads into the season today with two matches later in the evening!

The ESL Meisterschaft, for short ESLM, is split in three divisions and is limited to teams from Switzerland, Austria and Germany. The ESL Meisterschaft Division 3 is being held on the ESEA platform while the ESL itself hosts Division 1 and 2 themselves. Over the next weeks the teams battle it out for a playoff spot for a chance to be promoted into Division 2 and ultimately being one step closer to the highest competition in Germany.

The first two matches for Wolves eSports CSGO will be against sucking5 and ieS Virtual Gaming on de_dust2 and de_overpass respectively. With a record of 10-6 in the last season the team secured a playoffs spot which is the goal for this season as well. Two wins to start into the ESLM Division 3 would be a fantastic start for the Wolves and would put us on a decent way towards achieving said goal.

However, the ESLM is not the only competition that is going into a new season as the 99Damage Liga is starting at the end of the month. The sign-ups close on the 26th of September and the groups will be published shortly after. Wolves CSGO is starting in Division 3 there as well and no matter the teams that are being drawn into our group the goal is to reach the playoffs in the 99Liga as well.

Supreme Masters Recap

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

The Supreme Masters in Amriswil, Switzerland have been the first offline event for our CSGO team under the banner of Wolves eSports. A difficult group stage draw with mYinsanity, Lyngby Vikings and fellow Germans Team Sharx meant that the team had be to on-point from the get-go.

Our first match of the double elimination group stage had us face mYinsanity on Inferno. Not getting on the board during the first couple of rounds meant that the Swiss players were able to get into the zone while we unfortunately struggled to find any success on either the Terrorist or Counter-Terrorist side as mYinsanity took the map with 16-1. The first elimination matched us with Team Sharx who were overrun 16-2 by Lyngby Vikings in their first match of the tournament. Two maps later, Inferno (16-9) and Cache (16-3), we eliminated Team Sharx from the tournament and guaranteed ourselves another shot at playoffs.

Wolves eSports versus mYinsanity in a best-of-three to determine who continues their tournament journey and who will be eliminated from contention.

Map 1 – Cache
The first map to be played was Cache and it has been a close map throughout all stages. We managed to get slightly ahead and secured map point but failed to convert it as mYinsanity secured themselves overtime. We quickly got to map point once more but our opponents managed to hang on and forced a second overtime. Again, we needed one more round to take the win on map 1 but yet again we did not convert it. During the third overtime, we have had no luck  and ultimately lost the map 22-25.

Map 2 – Overpass
Another close map and another close lead for Wolves. However, while we did not close it out immediately, we also did not allow mYinsanity to come back and force snother overtime as we managed to take the win 16-13, forcing map three in this series.

Map 3 – Inferno
The deciding map is the one that we lost to the Swiss in our first match of the tournament and with the confidence gathered during the last two maps we hoped it would go differently this time around. However, it unfortunately did not as we were unable to find a solution to the opponents’ setup and ended up being eliminated from the tournament with a 2-16 loss on Inferno.

In the end, our CSGO players have learned a lot attending the Supreme Masters and ultimately identified areas in which they need to improve. It was a pleasure to compete and despite our early exit and several technical difficulties it was a great journey as it has been the first big offline event for a Wolves eSports team.

Team SkinBaron joins Wolves eSports

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

We’re back! After quite some time we are finally back within the German Counterstrike scene with the former roster of Team SkinBaron!

After a prolonged search in which we have talked to great teams and people, we have finally found a team that perfectly fits Wolves eSports in all areas. After the first meeting with our new team we have seen that it would make sense for both sides longterm and we can’t wait for them to represent Wolves from now on.

While the team did not make it into Division 2 of the ESL Meisterschaft after a loss against EnRo Griffins, they still have the chance to make it into Division 2 of the 99Damage Liga in the upcoming playoffs. Apart from that, the team will represent Wolves eSports at the SUPREME MASTERS LAN in Amriswil, Switzerland from August 31st – September 2nd. As one of 32 teams, they will fight for their share of the 6475€  prize pool against teams such as Berzerk, mYinsanity, eEriness, and eSuba just to name a few.

In the upcoming months, the team is going to give it their all to achieve the goals they have set themselves – Division 2 of the ESLM and the 99Liga. We believe that these goals are certainly possible and hope that both Wolves and the team will benefit from the combined efforts we are putting in.

Please welcome the newest addition to the Wolves family,

Wolves eSports CSGO Germany
Andreas “Myschoo” Rändler
Niklas “sIKK.” Welk
Marcel “FleX” Fischer
Danny “Fl!nt” Decker
Jonas “Müller” Müller

With the announcement of a German CSGO team, we are still on the look-out for a European team but stay tuned for more great news coming in the next few days!

British CSGO team joins Wolves eSports

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

Shortly after our new German CS:GO team, we can finally announce the addition of our second team in Counter-Strike!

We’ve always wanted to have two teams in Counter-Strike for the German and the European competitions out there and finally managed to get there. While the German team is concentrating on the German competitions, this team from the United Kingdom is going to represent Wolves eSports in the European ones. Their main focus is going to be the next ESEA season which doesn’t mean they won’t play anywhere else if the opportunity arises. The team has been together for quite some time and added Jay “xpoze” Hansen, a player that has been with Wolves in the past as a new player lately and who ultimately established contact between Wolves and the team. We are eager to see what this team can achieve in the future and we can’t wait for them to play for Wolves eSports in official matches.

Jay ”xpoZe” Hansen
Jack ”Br0die’‘ Emmott

Wolves eSports announces a new start into the German CSGO scene with former team epulze eSports.

The team has been playing the recent season of the 99 Damage Liga where they achieved a flawless 14-0 in their division meaning they are promoted to Division 4. Apart from the 99 Damage Liga they will be active in the ESL to try to achieve their set goals. We hope that this partnership lasts longer than the last one with a German team and that the new Wolves are able to hold up to their expectations and goals.

Simon “smn” Kaiser
Nico “Cpt.Awes0mE” Werner

Statement from Team-Captain Simon “smn” Kaiser:
“Auf geht’s, Jungs! I’ve known the team for about one year now and we steadily improved the more we played together as motivation and ambition are the top priorities for us. After our first season in the ESL and the 99Damage Liga, we realized we can achieve something and that we want to do it with someone at our side, a banner to represent so to speak. We then met the guys from Wolves eSports who decided to give us a chance to prove ourselves on our way forward. We would like to thank them for the opportunity and look forward to a good cooperation.

Wolves and German CSGO team part ways

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

With immediate effect Wolves eSports and its German CSGO team part ways.

Upon joining Wolves the team set themselves goals that turned out to be unrealistic in the long run. With matches being forfeited and unarguably weak performances measured by their own goals, the players now decided to move on and pursue other options in the future. That being said, Wolves eSports accepts the decision made and aims to have a better run with a new German CSGO team in the future.

Wolves with CSGO UK roster

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

It’s been some time – Wolves eSports now with two CSGO teams again! Joining their german counterpart under the banner of Wolves is our new CSGO team from the United Kingdom!

Wolves has been on the lookout for a fitting CSGO team and after endless amounts of applications and talks we are confident that this teams fits Wolves eSports perfectly. It has been pretty clear to us that we want to work with Jay “xpoZe” Hansen and his guys as he shares our vision of eSports and knows what needs to be done to reach the goals Wolves and the team have. After looking at many players we are happy to finalise the roster and to announce our new Wolves to the public. The team consists of young and promising talent that share goals and a philosophy. Although it should be clear that immidiate success is not to be expected, we strongly believe that given the time needed the team can become a solid contender in the UK and EU scene of Counter-Strike.

Lineup Wolves eSports.CSGO UK:
Jay “xpoZe” Hansen
Liam “Farmzy” Dales
Sam “SamJ” Jones
Adam “Downed” Carless
Lewis “bOunty” Lockwood

Statement from Team Captain Jay “xpoZe” Hansen:

“First of all I would like to thank Wolves eSports for the opportunity to build a team under their name. Right from the very first meeting we had about it we knew that we’d like to work with each other. I’ve built this lineup with the intentions of sticking together over a long period and achieve great things. Each person offers the right attributes needed to push this team forward to success and set this team apart from most others in the UK scene. The team is aware of the hard work that is needed to put in over the coming weeks and can not wait to get started.”
