Big achievement for Wolves eSports and our Warcraft 3 players Ilya “Sonik” Malish and Artem “Cash” Shirobokov as they attend the Warcraft Gold League Winter 2018 Finals in Shanghai, China from November 28th – December 8th. Both of them have been able to qualify through the European Qualifiers.

The Warcraft Gold League Winter 2018 is the second part of the most important individual tournament of the year which also is the most prestigious event of the scene. The tournament is organised by Blizzard Entertainment’s Chinese partner NetEase. During the group stage the 24 players are divided into 4 groups of 6 players that will face each other in a single round-robin where the top 2 of each group advance to the single-elimination playoffs. The prize money of around $16500 USD will be split between all players with the winner taking home more than $5500 USD.

Group A
Foggy
TH000
Lyn
WFZ
Neytpoh
Chaemiko

Group B
Colorful

Unfortunately, both Sonik and Cash were seeded into Group C and have to deal not only with incredible players, but also with each other. We’re hoping for amazing Warcraft 3 action during the tournament and that our players enjoy their time in China!

NWC3L Season 10 Champions

By | WarCraft 3 | No Comments

Yesterday evening, Season 10 of the nWC3L has come to an end and Wolves eSports has claimed the throne!

The season ended with the final between Wolves eSports and Soviet War Elites, a team with many well-known names such as ThorZaIN,  Kn0fF, Effect, LiilD.C, and starshaped. But before, we’d like to take a look at the season for both our first and second team.

Week 1:
During the first week, we’ve seen the Wolves eSports clash as Team 1 faced Team 2. All five matches went in favor of Team 1, granting them a 12:3 victory over the 2nd team.

Week 2:
The first team was matched against pro-Gaming and managed to grab another win with a score of 8-4.
Our second team had to play Soviet War Elites and unfortunately were handed their second loss in two games with another 3-12 score.

Week 3:
The winning streak of Team 1 went on as they took another 12-3 victory over Firestalker and secured their first place in the rankings even further. As good as it went for Team 1 so far, the opposite has to be said about Team 2. In week three they lost 0-9 to pro-Gaming and are bottom of the table.

Week 4:
While Team 1 cruised through their match vs Serbian side Real Life Buddies and won 11-1, Team 2 went up against Firestalker and lost their match with a score line of 5-10.

week 5:
Team 1 met Soviet War Elites in a matchup that returned once more after as the grand final. In the end, Wolves pulled through and managed to go through undefeated as we won 8-7. For the 2nd team it was the last chance to take home a win and they did. With a 3-0 vs Real Life Buddies they avoided coming in last.

With 5 weeks and the regular season done, Wolves eSports comfortably sits at the top of the table with Team 1, and 5th with Team 2. The top 4 qualify for the playoffs.

In the first round of the playoffs, we faced 4th placed pro-Gaming and went to the final with a flawless score of 9-0. In the other semi final, Soviet War Elites took a very close 8-7 win over Firestalker and moved on to the grand final. During the final, our players managed to win 3 out of 4 1v1’s, two of those with 2-0. Only Joaquin “Mackay” Ampuero lost his 1v1, but scored a point with a map win. These 1v1 results rendered the 2v2 unnecessary as we accumulated the points needed to win the final already! GG’s and well played to our players and Soviet War Elites!

WarCraft 3 Weekend Recap

By | WarCraft 3 | No Comments

This was a hell of a weekend for our WarCraft 3 team with a lot of tournament action!

It all started on Friday with the pG Champions Cup #2 where Ignas “Bizzare” Mockaitis and Vladimir “Sheik” Nikolaev took part in. After being defeated by “BlaDe” in round 1 of the tournament, Bizarre was revenged by his team mate Sheik in the Grand Finals. Sheik won the Best-of-Five with 3-1.

Later that evening, Sheik, Bizarre, Vladimir “rvs” Buravkov and Mikhail “XeLSinG” Illyinchyk played the Friday Random Fun Cup. Though Sheik could not repeat his performance from the previous cup, he still looked pretty good against the Ukrainian legend “Foggy” in the quarter-finals. The Russian wolf managed to take one map but finally lost 1-2.
Rvs and Bizzare did not have too much luck as they met each other in round 2 of the tournament. This duel was won by Bizzare who fell short to “BlaDe” in the round after. Meanwhile, XeLSinG fought his way through to the semi-finals where he also faced “BlaDe” but ultimately suffered the same fate as Bizzare.

The first stage of the LifeLine Tournament was the next event for our WarCraft team. Jeremy “BsK” Duez and Rvs could not make it past round 1 while XeLSinG managed to reach the second stage of the cup which will take place next week. Bizzare and Sheik almost made it to the next level as well but were defeated one round before they reached the checkpoint.

The Psichodеlica Cup 2 was the last individual cup of the weekend. Ilya “Sonik” Malish reached round 3 where he lost to the soon to be tournament winner “Happy”. Rvs could not make it past round 2 while BsK was not able to defeat “Foggy” in the first round of the tournament. Once more, Sheik delivered a great performance and reached the semi-finals after taking down “Lucifer”. In his semi-final he was defeated 2-0 by “Foggy” however.

In the NWC3L both of our teams had some interesting matches to play. In division 2, our team took a 10-5 victory over second placed HOT ELITE 2018, expanding their lead at the top of the table.
Team one had a tougher nut to crack as they faced the top team Soviet War Elites. This match was a literal back and forth which ended in a 8-7 in favor of the Swedish opponents.

Great weekend & well played by all players – we can’t wait for the next one!
