Goodbye Warcraft 3

By | WarCraft 3 | No Comments

Sadly, we have to release the Wolves eSports Warcraft 3 team with immediate effect.

While the times we’ve had were fantastic and we wouldn’t want to miss a single memory we shared, it’s time for us to let go something we deeply care about. With our entry into the WC3 scene 14 months ago we wanted to be a part of a tightly knit community that’s been around for ages in esports and one we’ve always followed throughout the years. With the announcement of Warcraft 3: Reforged, this community received the love it deserves.

Unfortunately, while we were hoping to continue to field one of the strongest European WC3 rosters until Reforged releases, the demands of our players have risen. The sheer amount of dedication, the endless victories and the stories full of success over the last year have been incredible. However, we are not in the position to meet these demands at the moment and won’t be able to continue our Warcraft 3 story in the foreseeable future. Obviously, we will continue to stay up-to-date with the WC3 scene and the players and we certainly would like to come back to Warcraft once the time is right.

Until then, we thank all the players that played for Wolves eSports for their time with us and wish them all the best in the future!


WGL Winter 2018 – Recap

By | WarCraft 3 | No Comments

The Warcraft 3 Gold League (short: WGL) has finished it’s Winter 2018 season earlier this month. With Ilya “Sonik” Malish and Artem “Cash” Shirobokov we have seen two Wolves in Shanghai, China after they qualified for the final event. An unlucky group stage draw later both of them have been drawn into the same group.

Overview of the WGL Winter 2018 Groups:

Group A
Group B
Group C
Group D

During Day 1 of the event, Sonik lost his matches to Zhou_Xixi (1-2), Infi (0-2) and his fellow Wolves team mate Cash (1-2), putting him at 0-3 at the start. While Cash managed to win his games against Sonik and pcg_123 (2-1), he lost the match against Infi (1-2).

Going into Day 2, Sonik’s chances to make it out of groups has already vanished. He unfortunately lost his last two matches of the event to pcg_123 (1-2) and Moon (0-2) which put him at 0-5 after the group stage. Cash however, still had the chance to advance to the next round and went 1-1 in matches. He lost to Moon (0-2) and won against Zhou_Xixi (2-0) which sadly wasn’t enough as both Moon and Infi went on to the quarter finals. The head-to-head against Infi on Day 1 was the deciding factor.

The playoff bracket played out as following:

Group C was one of the tougher ones as Moon and Infi placed 1st and 3rd respectively in the end. However, we are extremely proud that two players from Wolves eSports managed to qualify for the event in China and were able to present themselves in Asia, the arguably strongest region there is in Warcraft 3.

With the announcement of Warcraft 3 Reforged and the recent performances of the whole Wolves eSports Warcraft 3 team, including a 1st and 3rd place finish in the nWC3L Season 11, we are more than excited to see what 2019 brings for our WC3 players and Wolves!
