Farewell, Vainglory!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are announcing our departure from the Vainglory scene with immediate effect and say farewell, Vainglory!

While our time with Vainglory was short compared to some of the other organisations out there that recently left the scene, we had a joyful run while it lasted. We would like to thank all of our former and current players for spending their time with us and wish them all the best in the future as they explore other options.

A special thanks goes out to Alexander “Keygasza” R., who was our entry point to the scene and also turns his back to Vainglory going forward. His dedication towards the game and Wolves was nothing short of amazing and we are glad that he was the one in charge of the team here at Wolves eSports.

Overall we have been disappointed with how issues outside of Wolves were handled and do not believe we would be able to field a team that represents Wolves eSports in a way that we would deem acceptable.

Statement Alexander “Keygasza” R.:
“The biggest reason for leaving Vainglory is the unprofessionality in the scene. Super Evil Megacorp not really showing the best way to handle things impacts most of the competitive teams too. Pro players should be people to look up to, not someone toxic who just happens to be superior in terms of skill. And with that out of the way, we get to the next point: It is not only about how good you are. This is heavily misunderstood but being a good player is never the top priority for any organisation to pick you up or at least shouldn’t be. If you show you can’t be presented to the sponsors and fans you won’t have a chance longterm. I initially joined Vainglory to improve the position of it’s esports but people are okay with it not growing. With a few exceptions almost everyone is blinded by their own arrogance and unflexibility of thoughts. “If I think it’s correct then it’s correct – no matter how much sense the other option makes”. With this immunity I will move forward to look for a more mature surrounding. I feel sad to just turn my back, but as it is Vainglory will never leave puberty. If I had the choice to pick from every player available in the game there would be less than 20 players I would consider and I have been in a team with most of them. I gave chances to more than 100 players over the years and there have been tons of disappointments.”

No more SMITE

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

After we recently released our DotA 2 team, we are doing the same with SMITE today.

The team has been a test-run as we picked up a team of former SMITE console players that switched to PC. While Wolves eSports and the team did get along well, the agreed upon goals have not been reached but rather went farther and farther away over time. Several roster changes have been made but the results remained the same unfortunately. A recent change that was accompanied by a change in goals by the team was the moment we decided to move on without them in the future.

However, we’d like to thank them for their efforts and time as we want to make clear that it was a pleasant time with the team and that there is no bad blood from our side between Wolves and them, but rather an incompatibility when it comes to goals for Wolves and the SMITE team that was the deciding factor for this decision. As a result, Wolves eSports does not intend to return to SMITE in the future. We wish all the players best of luck for their future endeavours!

We’ll have more news about Wolves eSports in the next couple of days, stay tuned!

New Vainglory Lineup

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today, we are announcing the new Wolves eSports Vainglory lineup participating in the upcoming leagues and tournaments.

Vainglory has been in off-season mode for quite some time and with the switch from 3v3 to 5v5 as the main competitive gamemode we knew that our team would change a bit going forward. With the uncertainty of how Vainglory is going to continue in esports it took quite some time to figure out what’s going to happen with the team. In the end, we are more than happy with out it turned out and today we’d like to introduce the team that is going to represent Wolves eSports from now on.

While we are keeping our current players Alexander “Keygasza” R., Sebastian “Chrysior” L., Oliver “KingPaprika” R., and Adrian “Asero1d” S., we also add Sim “Simmmy” S. and Yason “Sosiska” P.

Last but not least, we have three former members of G2 Esports joining Wolves – David “DarkPotato” S., Tim “Reddix” S., and Timo “D1ngo” T., who is going to be the Team-Manager.

Lineup Wolves eSports Vainglory:
Timo “D1ngo” T. (Team-Manager)
Alexander “Keygasza” R.
Sebastian “Chrysior” L.
Oliver “KingPaprika” R.
Sim “Simmmy” S.
Yason “Sosiska” P.
David “DarkPotato” S. (Substitute)
Tim “Reddix” S. (Substitute)

Stay tuned for more Vainglory news and announcements in the near future!

Time to SMITE

We’re happy to announce that Wolves eSports joins the SMITE scene with an UK based team!

With the addition of 7 SMITE players we jump into yet another game for the first time. While we have been around in another game of Hi-Rez Studios, namely Paladins, Wolves now join the battlegrounds of SMITE. Most of the players have been playing the game on console before and decided to switch to PC. The talks with the team have been pleasant and we quickly wanted to give them and the game a chance coming into 2018 which makes this the first new adventure for the new year and once season 5 starts.

Lineup Wolves eSports.SMITE:
Rhys “Beanhead” Pennington (Team-Capitan)
Joe “RyujinHawker” T.
Jamie “Luckski” Luck
Matthew “Spitfire” Pressdee
Connor “Junglistics” Lange
Rick “DDreadz” King (Substitute)
Kieran “Kiebrad” Bradshaw (Substitute)

Statement Wolves eSports.SMITE:
“We are happy to be a part of Wolves eSports and are looking forward to season 5 with the new team and a new start. We want to play as many tournaments as possible and enter the Challenger Circuit in spring while also looking at LAN events around the UK and abroad.”

Vainglory Roster Update

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With our recent search for Vainglory players on Twitter came a lot of tryout games and endless hours of talks which resulted in the roster we now present for the upcoming challenges.

Before we go into detail with the updated roster we would like to thank all applicants for their interest. We’ve had a huge influx of messages every day which was fantastic to see and we are sorry if we did not get back to you as fast as you might have hoped. It’s been the first time we’ve done a player search like that and we were genuinely surprised about the result.

The now updated team is going to debut during the VGL Autumn Challenger Series Split 2 starting October 24th.

Lineup Wolves eSports Vainglory:
Alexander “Keygasza” R.
Sebastian “Chrysior” Lautenbach
Adrian “Asero1d” S.
Hugo “Znw” Gautier
Jannis “Grenlix” M.

Apart from the announcement of the new and updated lineup, we are also looking for streamers interested in working with Wolves eSports. While the game itself does not matter that much, it would be a big plus if it’s one of the games Wolves has teams in (e.g. Vainglory) or is a major eSports title.

To keep it short, here is a list of requirements:

  • Age : 18+
  • Region: EU/NA
  • Able to stream in fluent English
  • High Quality stream (720p+)
  • Active on Twitter (others are a bonus, especially YouTube)
  • Video Editing is a huge plus

PUBG team adds 2

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

After we’ve picked up Swedish PUBG players Tonny “BIG.T” Tindberg and Jon “Zelendra” Micksäter at the end of June, they have been on the look-out to finalize their roster of 4 to participate in  PUBG Squad tournaments.

Over the last few weeks they played with Niklas “St8Ty” Weber and Markus “sHYNEFX” Tallinen and now decided to officially team up with them. They already played the first round of the Auzom Premier League together where the team ended up 18th out of 80 teams and qualified for the Top20 lobby this Sunday, alongside names such as Team Kinguin, Method, and Team Liquid.

Apart from the Auzom Premier League, Wolves eSports.PUBG is going to play the Legends Arena Pro League Qualifier #1 on Monday, September 25th for a shot at the 16 slot team league.

Wolves eSports joins Vainglory

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Wolves eSports ventures into Vainglory. A new game and the very first mobile game Wolves ever enters. In the past weeks we’ve carefully looked at promising options and narrowed it down to a single team – the one that now joins Wolves eSports as the official Vainglory team!

With already big names in Vainglory we have thought about the game more than once and tried to find a suitable team to accompany Wolves eSports on the journey and we believe that we’ve made the right decision. The team formerly known as Halcyon Quake is going to represent Wolves from now on with their first official appearance in the VGL Summer Season against eSuba tomorrow.

Lineup Wolves eSports Vainglory:
Alexander “Keygasza” R.
Dennis “PraY” S.
Leon “zILeno” A.
Paul “PMXPlus” M.
Julius “DarudeTankstorm” T.
Connor “LeftSpectrs” H.
William “Azurestreak” M.
Sim “MovingOn” S.

Statement Wolves eSports Vainglory:
“We, former Halcyon Quake, are happy to be able to announce that we will continue our way under the name of Wolves eSports! We are glad to be a part of them now and are looking forward to a great partnership and a great future!”

Wolves enter BATTLEGROUNDS scene

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are happy to announce the addition of two new players to the Wolves eSports family in a game that is unlike others Wolves eSports has teams and players in. Please welcome the new Wolves eSports BATTLEGROUNDS team!

After great talks with the two players we decided to expand into PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BATTLEGROUNDS and start a new journey for Wolves. While they’ll participate in any 2v2 tournaments happening, we are looking forward to grow the team to 4 players relatively soon to be ready for anything that is coming up in the future. This also means that we now have two players streaming on a daily basis which is something we’ve been wanting to make happen in the past already and finally managed to do so. It’s a great new experience for Wolves eSports and we can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Wolves eSports without Paladins

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have to sadly announce that the Wolves eSports Paladins team decided to move on to pursue other options.

The last few months have been filled with great memories as we’ve seen this relatively new roster fight their way up to the European top ranks which ended with an unfortunate day in the Paladins Masters Gauntlet and a failed qualification for the Paladins Masters LAN in early April. Following that, we’ve been able to find a new solid fifth player to make sure they can keep on track for their quest to Dreamhack Valencia. We wish NTBees, Simsiloo, sleeppyy, Slashwhine, kowa and MadAang all the best for their future! We loved having you!
