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.”
