The Howl 2022 – League of Legends

By | League of Legends | No Comments

A new year, a new Howl! To start this year’s Howl series we’ve asked two of our League of Legends players a few questions about the team, the game and more.

Q: Hello, to start this Howl it would be great if you could quickly introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about the team.
FlowST3R: Hi, my name is Flo, I’m 25 years old and have been a toplaner ever since I started playing League of Legends. I’ve known the boys for quite some time from offline events and tournaments. Last year, we’ve surprisingly met each other again in scoutings and have been a team ever since.

Bluddeux: Hey, I’m Julian and I’m 26 years old from beautiful Austria. I started playing League in 2013 and played pretty much all roles since then. At the moment I’m the support for Wolves Esports.

Q: The last season ended not too long ago. How was it from your perspective and how do you think the team will do in the upcoming season?
FlowST3R: Last season we’ve been in Division 4 and qualified for playoffs as a clear first place in our group. During the playoffs however, we went to the lower bracket final before qualifying for Division 3. I believe there is a huge skill gap between the divisions 4 and 3 but I’m certain that we have a good shot at Division 2 playoffs with our new jungler and a good amount of practice and preparation.

Bluddeux: Last season’s group stage wasn’t that hard. Now that we’ve played together for some time and considering that we barely missed out on Division 2 in the Prime League once, Division 4 was not a huge challenge for us despite the fact we didn’t have a coach or didn’t practice as much. I’m excited for the new split as Division 3 has gotten a lot stronger split by split but reaching the playoffs is the goal. It won’t be an easy task though.

Q: Since when are you guys playing League and how did it all start?
FlowST3R: I initially played Counterstrike with my brother who kept telling me about League of Legends. During Season 2, around 2012 was the point in time I tried the game and never looked back. 9 years of being on an island in toplane and I’m still as excited about the new season as if it was my first!

Bluddeux: I play the game since 2013 and was told about the game by a class mate. Before that I played Metin 2, Crossfire and World of Warcraft. Competitively as well at times.

Q: Apart from League of Legends, are there any other games you play?
FlowST3R: Yes, of course. Mostly offline or singleplayer games such as Assassins Creed, Cyberpunk and more. My only real online game is League, though.

Bluddeux: I don’t really play games apart from LoL at the moment. Some minigames here and there or some Call of Duty Warzone on my PS4. The time to play games is limited so I invest it into LoL to improve myself there.

Q: Let’s get back to League. What are the things you like and hate the most about the game?
FlowST3R: I think the teamplay is what fascinates me the most when it’s good and everything runs smooth. It can also be the most frustrating aspect of the game when it’s not there because you can rarely carry the game on your own.

Bluddeux: The hate-love relationship with SoloQ is what gets me the most. Especially now that you compare your ranks and ELO within the team it’s a lot more fun to try and achieve a higher rank. Apart from that and SoloQ it’s achieving something with your team and friends. The thing that bothers me more than anything else is the immense ego a lot of players have. However, through dealing with it for years I’m not too faced by it anymore.

Q: All rules and the meta aside: What would the team pick in Draft?
FlowST3R: A good old wombo combo would be my choice. Something like Ornn, Nocturne, Orianna, Ezreal and Alistar since we are usually the better team when it comes to teamfights.

Bluddeux: Ornn, Vi, Viktor, Samira, Alistar.

Q: If you could delete three champions from the game, which ones would you pick?
FlowST3R: As a toplaner, cleary it’s Fiora, Irelia and Teemo!!

Bluddeux: Yuumi, Tryndamere, Evelyn.

Q: Let’s talk the other way around now that you picked the champions to delete. If you were to create champion, what kind of abilities would they have and what would be their role?
FlowST3R: A champion with some sort of mana drain or a possibility to increase your opponents cooldowns as a support would be cool. Maybe it’ll be too strong but at least it wouldn’t have heals or invisibility!

Bluddeux: A support with a global ability. All other roles have champions specifically with a global. Of course you can flex toplane champions like Shen as support but his kit is by far not the one of a support champion.

Q: What do you think about tools such as OP.GG and Blitz App that can make the decision of what runes to pick for certain champions and tell you what items to build in game?
FlowST3R: It’s incredibly helpful. I wish I would have had access to these things when I started playing. Tools and websites like these can at least give you a general idea of how to play and build characters in terms of item choices, which runes are the most useful and what ability to max first. For coaches and analyst these are also invaluable tools nowadays.

Bluddeux: Great for beginners but apart from scouting your opponents through OP.GG for example it isn’t necessary or benefitial once you reach a certain level as you have to individually adapt your runes and items to how the draft went and using a preset is not the best idea in that case.

Q: Last League related question: The LoL community loves skins. Be honest – how much did you spend on skins so far?
FlowST3R: Well, more than 1000€ for sure. I’m just glad that we have loot boxes now so I can get new skins without taking out a loan.

Bluddeux: I currently own 459 skins but I’m not sure how many of them I actually bought. Throughout all these years you collect a lot of things and if you spend some money every few months or so while having fun for years I have to admit that the amount of money doesn’t matter anymore. It’s invested perfectly.

Q: Have you ever played any other MOBAs aside from League of Legends?
FlowST3R: I tried DOTA 2 after I already played League for some time. Mechanics like last hits, wave management etc. can be transferred but I simply didn’t want to learn a huge amount of characters again.

Bluddeux: None. I only played shooters and MMORPGs before.

Q: This week we’ll introduce the new Wolves Esports jerseys. What color would you prefer? Green, maybe?
FlowST3R: I’m excited for the new jerseys! I could see a lot of colors working but white and blue come to my mind when thinking of Wolves. Green would be bold, but possible. At least you would be one of a kind with that color compared to most others.

Bluddeux: I always like white. You can combine a lot of colors with it. Green is my favorite color so I’m now excited if it could really be green.

Q: Thank you for taking the time and answering our questions. Is there anything else you want to say at the end?
FlowST3R: Only that I’m hyped and ready for the new season with the Wolves and my team mates as well as going for the Division 2 playoffs in Prime League.

Bluddeux: Let’s go Wolves!

Prime League Summer Split 2020

By | League of Legends | No Comments

After the calibration phase for the Prime League Summer Split 2020 was postponed for a week due to technical issues it has been played out last Sunday.

With a potential chance to grab one of the sought after Division 2 spots available over 600 teams participated in the 6 stage Swiss tournament. Our new League of Legends team finished the calibration phase with a match score of 5-1 and remain in Division 3.

Due to a change of the number of groups in Division 2, the upcoming split for the 3rd Division will be a tough one as there are quite a few teams around that easily have the potential to play in Division 2 or higher.

Our team will compete in Division 3.5:
Wolves Esports
Team Orange Gaming Flying
Tactical Gaming Senna
Triple S eSports
Team Pater JuleZ
Divinity Esports

Matchday 1: Wolves vs Team Pater JuleZ
Matchday 2: Wolves vs Team Orange Gaming Flying
Matchday 3: Wolves vs AGT
Matchday 4: Wolves vs Tactical Gaming Senna

Wolves Esports is happy to announce a new League of Legends team joining the family.

In the last couple of years League of Legends was absent in our range of teams and games, although we’ve always had an eye on the game and decided to pull the trigger in 2020.

Please welcome the team formerly known as “Big Kiss Goodnight” as our new Wolves Esports League of Legends team!

The team has beein playing together for some time now and will represent Wolves in the Prime League and other small tournaments and cups. Their last season in the Prime League ended with a third place finish in their Division 3 group. The goal is to qualify for Division 2 and to establish the players within the German speaking League of Legends scene. We believe that the team is capable of doing so as they dedicate a lot of time on improving and bring their own coaching staff to help them out.

Roster Wolves Esports League of Legends:
David “Bella Ciao” Schäper (Botlane)
Kolya “Bettchiller” Schlicht (Support)
Jakob “InSahne” Kachler (Toplane)
Miguel “Phoxie” Pacheco (Midlane)
Justin “Orian” Bruder (Substitute – Midlane)
Dominik “Tydus” Kibbel (Headcoach)
Peter “Ta1rasha” Koppelstetter (Assistant Coach)
Marvin “SHINlGAMI” Rußwurm (Mental Coach)

As the Prime League is currently in off-season, the team is still evaluating player options going forward and is actively looking for a new jungler for the upcoming challenges.

Statement League of Legends team:
“First of all we thank Wolves Esports for the trust they put in our young international team and for the chance to play as their representatives in the esports scene of League of Legends. We started in December 2019 and after some minor roster changes we played in the Prime League. We closed the qualifications 5/1 and almost made it to second Division. After our first split Wolves Esport reached out for us and now we’re looking forward to be part of a well known organisation. Our strong solo laners are shining in every game with their individual playstyle while the botlane seems like an indomitable bulwark. For the improvement of our gameplay, we were lucky to find 2 coaches with much experience that are helping us to reflect and analyze our games. For the communication, motivation and the team spirit we found a Mental Coach that is helping us to grow as a team. With this setup we are highly enthusiastic that we will overcome any obstacle in our way and reach our common goal the 2nd Division of the Prime League in the next Split. A new pack is roaming the Fields of Justice for their prey.”
