Wolves now with Fortnite

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Fortnite is a massive phenomenon  that keeps growing and takes the first few steps into the world of esports.

We want to be a part of that and picked up a German Fortnite team that is going to represent Wolves eSports starting today!

While the Summer Skirmish, the official tournament by Epic Games, started off with quite a few problems, the community has been all over the possibility to compete against each other. We believe that with time the esports scene in Fortnite will start to grow and make use of the enormous player base the game has. To be ready for that, we decided to get into Fortnite as early as we possibly could with a team that fits our philosophy perfectly.

Lineup Wolves eSports Fortnite:
Tom “Destin” Mohr
Felix “TreffNix” Voß
Leon “Spicyacce” Schnur
Laurin “yourePRIME” Gregorowius

Statement Wolves eSports Fortnite:
“We’ve decided to part ways with our former clan JAEGER to start a new chapter in our Fortnite career together with Wolves eSports. We are determined and highly motivated to prove ourselves and are looking forward to a successful partnership with the Wolves!”

Wolves enters Quake

By | Quake | No Comments

We’re happy to announce our entry into the competitive Quake scene with the addition of two swedish players to the Wolves family!

Arena shooters have been a part of esports for a long, long time and some of us closely followed those games over the years. While looking for new games to expand into, we’ve stumbled upon Quake Champions multiple teams but haven’t been able to find a suitable team or players for Wolves eSports which has changed now! We’re excited to see where the Quake journey takes us in the future!

The two new Swedes will be participating in upcoming 1v1 and 2v2 leagues and tournaments for Wolves eSports starting today and will also stream their gameplay on a regular basis.

Please welcome the Wolves eSports Quake roster:
Ola “Reknine” Magnusson
Mattias “Strydah” Ostrowski

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!

The new Wolves eSports

By | News | No Comments

Here it is – the new Wolves eSports and our new and updated logo!

Around this time last year we briefly talked about the option to update our beloved logo for the first time and over the year we continued to talk about it from time to time. Those talks lead to a decision at the end of last year which was aimed at getting Wolves a cleaner, more appropriate look. The main idea was to fix the issues we’ve had with the old logo while maintaining the characteristics we liked the most.

With the start of Wolves eSports back in 2013 the logo we used until now was made. During these times Wolves was not meant to be a serious project and the logo was good enough for our needs. At the end of 2016 however, we decided to take Wolves eSports a lot more serious going into 2017 and over time the flaws of this logo became apparent and a struggle to deal with. The color gradients (shades of different colors throughout the logo) look okay when in digital form. Printed and on clothing however, it always had the potential to become a problem. The general shape of the logo and the free space between the body and tail were other problematic areas to deal with and the logo lacked some of the versatility we were looking for. To be honest, we all loved the logo more than we hated it for the flaws it had but we felt like it would be the first thing that needs to change to move forward with the brand Wolves eSports. However, the colors, the visibility of the head, upper body and tail, as well as the pose (non-aggressive, howling stance) have been things we wanted to keep as close as possible to the old logo and we believe we achieved that with the new logo.

To summarize it – we wanted to get rid of the gradients, make the logo a lot more versatile for digital use as well as print and clothing while keeping the mentioned characteristics from our beloved wolf alive.

The new Wolves eSports – after some trial and error phase (we are still learning!) we finally found the person that we felt comfortable with to take on the project. At the end, we come out of this grueling process with two different versions of the logo. The primary version which includes the wordmark, and the secondary logo without the wordmark. This gives us a lot of flexibility when it comes to designs for completely different occasions. Our color palette and the non-aggressive stance allow us to stick out of the logo creations that involve animals as most of them feature said aggressive or combative stance. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not saying these logo are bad or worse than ours but simply follow a different narrative. With that being said, we can’t wait to move on with our new logo!

No more SMITE

By | SMITE | 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!
