The Howl – Smash Bros. Ultimate – Kire42 Edition

By | Smash | No Comments

It’s a Howl! Certainly, quite some time has passed since we last posted a Howl with one of our players but we are back at it! This time, we are talking to Erik “Kire42” Bergman, one of our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players!

Hello Erik! Could you please introduce yourself?
Hello there! I’m Kire – or Erik if you read that backwards. Originally I’m from Gävle (Sweden), but I’ve lived in Levanger (Norway) for the past 6 years with my girlfriend, bonus son, and Maine Coon cat. With my 32 trips around the sun, I’m a bit of a Smash Bros. veteran and professionally I’m a VVS engineer.

How long have you been playing Smash Bros. and how did you get into the game?
I’ve been playing Smash Bros. since I was 8 years old, grinding the game with my brother Tylon. We’ve always loved video games and competing in particular – Smash Bros. is something we both really enjoy getting better at together, always trying to best each other.

Do you play any other games outside of Smash? What are your favourite genres?
Smash is the game where I put in the most hours, focusing on improvement and actual practice, but I do play other games as well more casually. Currently, I’m playing some CoD/CS, Hades, and the occasional Apex game. I definitely prefer playing with my mates and games that involve competition and winning, but I also enjoy games like Divinity II and Baldur’s Gate 3 with my girlfriend.

Do you compete in any other fighting games or platform fighters?

No, I don’t.

Outside of Smash Bros., do you enjoy watching other esports?

Sitting down with a cold beer, pizza and watching a big CS:GO tournament is a great way to spend an evening for sure!

Some players do have a special routine to prepare for a tournament. Are you one of them or do you just jump in?

I don’t think I have a particular routine, no – I try to get some warm-up and practice beforehand of course, but I’ve also found that it’s nice to focus on something completely different right before the tournament, to calm my nerves and not get too worked up about it. The main thing is that I play my best when I’m relaxed and having fun, not taking it too seriously.

If you were granted one wish aimed at Nintendo in regards to the Smash scene – what would that be?
If Nintendo could give online some love and start taking competitive Smash seriously – backing the scene and encouraging tournaments, that would be awesome! Okay, that’s two things, but still.

What other hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?
Besides gaming I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with my family – that second thing is going to get even more exciting in a few months, as we’re having a baby!  We also just bought a pretty big house, so who knows – maybe I’ll get into carpentry or something as well.

Do you have a new favourite movie or show you’ve been watching recently?
I’m currently watching The Blacklist with my girlfriend and working our way through the Insidious movies. A series that really impressed me was The Haunting of Hill House and I really liked the movie Everything Everywhere All At Once.

What kind of music do you listen to and do you enjoy going to concerts? 

I’m not really stuck in any particular genre of music, but as for what I listen to the most or prefer going to concerts to, it’s probably rock along the lines of Skillet, Hollywood Undead, and Five Finger Death Punch. Music that “packs a punch” is my go-to.

Since most of your teammates are from different countries and regions, what makes your competitive region unique?
In my experience Norway has a really nice competitive Smash scene with a lot of good and friendly players that back each other and cheer each other on – I was really glad to be met with a serious and including scene in Trondheim when I moved here from Sweden. Norway has some really heavy hitters – none mentioned, none forgotten, and also really good TOs and casters who put their hearts into creating tournaments and events that people travel far to attend.

Seems like we are done. Thank you for your answers and for taking the time to do this! Any last words to conclude this Howl?

Server Issues – Website set back 3 months

By | News | No Comments

Sometimes technology is not working as intended. We’ve seen that since yesterday as we, unfortunately, had to roll back our website to a backup from the end of June.

This was caused by a defective Virtual Hard Drive.

We will be bringing back the website to its updated status over the next few days.

Hello, Shootmania

By | Shootmania | No Comments

Today we announce our entry into the Shootmania scene by picking up a team that will represent Wolves Esports in all future tournaments and leagues.

We’ve known about Shootmania since it was released but never entered the scene until now. While looking for options outside of the main esports titles we have been made aware of Shootmania again and a couple of days later we officially field a team in the game.

For us this means we are back to supporting smaller competitive scenes, something we love to do and means a lot to us.

Roster Wolves Esports Shootmania:
Emil “Letnis” Kob
Léonard “Tropic” B.
Steven “Peachy” Z.

Statement from the team:
“We are really glad to become part of the Wolves Esports family and we are motivated to gain victories and represent our new colors to the best of our abilities. We are confident that we can show good results and make everyone proud. Thanks for the support you’re giving to us! You won’t be disappointed. #KeepHowling”

Their first official appearance will be the Elite Pro Series as one of 8 qualified teams fighting for 900€, starting tomorrow


Entering Trackmania

By | Trackmania | No Comments

We’re happy to finally announce our Wolves Esports Trackmania team!

The team has been assembled some time ago and we are now at the point where we can happily announce the team. This is our second time within the Trackmania scene and the last time was several years ago with a different game.

Trackmania has always been a game we follow, some times closer, some times more loosely but it was clear that we want to come back to the game at one point in the future.

With two players from Europe and two players from Asia, this is another step into different markets for us and we are excited to see how the future of the team will look like. Alongside the players we have found someone to take care of the team and he also played an integral part in the process of finding players in the first place.

But now, let’s see who our new representatives are, the roster of #WolvesTM:

Oskars “SRK” Zvejnieks (Team Manager)
Patrick “Bresso” Jönen
Teemu ”teukka” Pitkänen
Timotius “Gamingboy2508” A
Genta “Kudajingkrak12” Ramadhan

By | Pokemon | No Comments

Recently, we’ve announced 5 additions to the Wolves Esports Pokemon VGC team, expanding the team to a total of six players and making sure that Ben Wood isn’t the only VGC player represent Wolves anymore

This expansion is also our next step into Asia and North America while it’s our first into Australia.

To recap all the player announcements, here’s the #WolvesPokemon VGC lineup:

Ben Wood
Renaud “Otark” Dutarque
