Apex Legends return

By | Apex Legends | No Comments

With the announcement of the Apex Global Series, Apex has become a more interesting title to us and we’re happy to announce the return of the game at Wolves Esports!

Joining us is a Swedish team that recently reached Round 5 out of 6 in the first European Apex Global Series qualifier. The players have known each other for ages and first started playing together with the release of Apex Legends a year ago.

With the next Global Series qualifiers coming up, the team already has their goals set and wants to repeat their fantastic performance from the qualifier and aim to push it even further. Apart from that, they will participate in further tournaments and cups if they arise and fit the team’s schedule.

Lineup Wolves Esports.Apex:
Christopher “Legend Graham” Graham
Marcus “Mickey” Lindberg
Anton “Pitki” Vähäjylkkä

Statement Wolves Esports.Apex:
First of all we want to thank Wolves Esports for the opportunity! They are a really good group of people and have a good understanding where esports is heading in the future and we are happy to be onboard. We want to change esports and how the perception of esports is from the “outside” and we really feel that we share the same goals as the Wolves. You will see us in all the upcoming upcoming Apex Legends Global Series tournaments! We came a little bit short at the first online qualifier as semis finalists, but we’ll get it next time. You will see us in scrims every night as well. Our goal is to thrive to be the best individuals that we can be, outside and in the game. We want to stay loyal and honest, so you will see the same trio around for a long, long time. Now, let’s change the game – #KeepHowling

Wolves enters Brawlhalla

By | Brawlhalla | No Comments

After we have looked into the scene quite some time ago, we have finally pulled the trigger and picked up our first Brawlhalla player and enter the scene!

We’re happy to announce that Daniel “TheNinja729” B. joins Wolves Esports as our first official Brawlhalla player. Some of his bigger achievements include a first place at the Brawlhalla 2v2 Autumn Championship 2019, a 3rd place at the 1v1 Spring Championship 2019, as well as a 4th place at the 1v1 Summer Championship. In the current EU 1v1 Powerrranking, he is within the Top 15.

Together with him, we are looking to build a fantastic team of players that will represent Wolves Esports in Brawlhalla, meaning Daniel is just the first step of many. We are already looking at events further down the line in 2020 but the first official appearance for our new Brawlhalla player will be the Winter Championship 2020, which starts on February 23rd.

Exciting times ahead and we can’t wait for a new journey in a new game to start!

Season Review: DeSBL Advanced League B #8

By | Rainbow Six | No Comments

Flawless. Perfect season. There are many things to say about the season our Rainbow Six: Siege team just played in the DeSBL and we will talk about it in this season review.

The team just prior to this season was promoted to the Advanced League B, which forms the second highest league for R6S together with the Advanced League A in the current DeSBL system. Upon joining, the team said that qualifying for the first division, the Ultimate League, was certainly the goal. A season later, they already achieved it with a flawless record of 7 wins in 7 matches – a perfect season by score.

Matchday 1:
Wolves Esports vs Hypnotic Seals – 2:0

Matchday 2:
Wolves Esports vs V1CTORY Esports – 2:0

Matchday 3:
Wolves Esports vs BAT Noctula – 2:0

Matchday 4:
Wolves Esports vs Playing Ducks – 2:0

Matchday 5:
Wolves Esports vs InGenious – 2:0

Matchday 6:
Wolves Esports vs Academy Fraternity – 2:0

Matchday 7:
Wolves Esports vs REH Gaming – 2:0

Season Statement Wolves Esports R6:

Our Advanced legue season was off to a rocky start as we went to overtime against Hypnotic Seals on both maps in pretty hard fought victories. Our communication was not yet on point and it was clear that we had a lot to improve with the new lineup. However, it went better the next week. We were able to defeat V1CTORY Esports with two different map experiences. The first one was a close win, the second one a dominating win. That showed us that our communication has gotten better and that the new strats were holding up, leading to more confidence in our gameplay overall.

That confidence has led to two one-sided maps against BAT Noctula, as well as against the Playing Ducks, formerly vaceGaming Pro-Team Black. The match against the now-Ducks has shown that our ability to simply outfrag our opponents can help us a lot. It was clear to us that if we were able to combine our fragging ability with clear comms, it could lead to a fantastic season.

The next match against InGenious was a strange one as we were only able to play and win the first map, but were stopped by ongoing server issues, resulting in a map two delayed by multiple days. During map one, our so far great communication went downhill and it has become a pretty close call. Map 2 however, was a good performance with decent comms and excellent execution of strategies.

The penultimate match against Fraternity Academy went smooth with two fast maps. The last match of the season against REH Gaming was a season highlight for us as the match would be streamed live. Going into the match, there was a bit of overconfidence which led to some careless mistakes, nearly allowing our opponents a comeback on the second map.

In the end, we have to say the season couldn’t have gone any better for us. It has shown that we always have to be on point and have to continuously work hard to improve and become an even better team. Now that we have reached the goal of qualifying for the Ultimate League, we jump straight into preparations for the new season. New strats, new calls, bigger map pool. We are extremely exciting to play in the Ultimate League and can’t wait for it to start!

Recap 2019

By | News | No Comments

Another 12 months have passed, another 12 months under the belt for Wolves eSports. This is our 2019 recap.

It’s been an eventful year. We have been at DreamHack Leipzig 2019 with our former CSGO team in February. A fantastic experience with fantastic people we now call friends.

In March, we welcomed Apex Legends as a new game at Wolves eSports but also had to say goodbye to Fortnite, a game that never really took off for us. Wolves eSports CSGO started their 99Damage Liga season with the goal to finally make it to Division 2, which we unfortunately did not achieve.

During the next few months we have come back to Rainbow Six: Siege, had several roster and lineup changes in other games, have seen teams leave and rebuild. Our CSGO rebuild for Season 13 of the 99Damage Liga and ESEA Intermediate happened to be cursed however. Plenty of matches with stand-ins due to rules never allowed the team to pop off and ultimately ended in a disbanded team.

The second half of the year turned out to be the more enjoyable one. More success, more good news.

In August, we revived our Overwatch team who then moved on to play the best Open Division Season we have had so far here at Wolves. The new Rainbow Six team rocks the DeSBL Advanced League so far, we finally ventured into Rocket League for the first time and we welcomed two new partners in XOOSE and Skybox.

In December, we picked up a promising Counterstrike team again and can’t wait for them to pick up the action next year.

Our overall ambitions and plans for 2020 are coming along and in just a few days we will continue our grind to make Wolves eSports the best it can be.

From our side, a huge thank you to all of our current and former players for the ride we shared in 2019. Another thank you goes out to our partners and sponsors, current and former.

Thank you for 2019. Let’s make 2020 even better!

Return to Counterstrike

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

After an unfortunate last Counterstrike season in both ESEA and the 99Damage Liga, we are happy to announce our new German team and our return to Counterstrike.

From today on, the team formerly known as “Floppy Esports” will represent Wolves eSports in the 99Damage Liga as well as the ESEA. The team just recently was promoted into Division 3 of the 99Damage Liga and ESEA Intermediate. They are looking to establish themselves there during the next season.

The signing of this team is the start of an hopefully successful longterm partnership in which Wolves aims to develop the team over a longer period of time and to get them into a positions where they are able to challenge the playoff spots in Division 3. The decision to go for a newly promoted team is a change of pace for us but we are confident that is has been the right decision for Wolves eSports in regards to the 99Damage Liga and the German Counterstrike scene.

Lineup Wolves eSports.CSGO:
Niklas “Nikelele” Scherer
Jan “MRLooPS” Strohscheer
Lukas “kLaus” Scherer
Manuel “Kyubi” Krug
Philipp “fill” Müller

Statement Wolves eSports.CSGO:
“We are happy that we are able to represent Wolves eSports in the 99Damage Liga and in the ESEA from today on. After our promotions to Division 3 and ESEA Intermediate the goals are first and foremost acclimatation and staying in these new divisions.

Thinking longterm, we aim towards participation in the Div 2-3 promotion tournament of the 99Damage Liga and as the ultimate goal promotion into Division 2.”

Preparations for the new seasons start soon and we hope to make good use of the time we have before we jump into official competition.

Partnership Updates

By | News | No Comments

As of today, Wolves eSports is no longer affiliated with EXZ-Hosting and SUMMACUM due to insurmountable differences when it comes to the terms of a potentially prolonged partnership and other issues we simply deem non-acceptable.

The professionalism in esports is sadly not at the point where everyone wants it to be and some of the issues we faced are also happening on the very top of esports for players, organisations and talents alike. This is something nobody involved in esports should have to deal with.

After endless tries to salvage both partnerships, we have come to a point where we needed to make decisions. Wolves eSports won’t further comment on the issues mentioned as we move on with the plans for 2020, an incredibly busy and important year for us. Taking on our 2020 goals with us is XOOSE, a partner we haven’t had any issues with at all and one we trust in for the future.

Stay tuned for more information about Wolves eSports around the end of the year and in Q1 of 2020!

Rainbow Six Siege – Roster Update

By | Rainbow Six | No Comments

After an eventful and and problematic season, the old team and Wolves have mutually decided to go separate ways going forward. With that being said, we are now happy to announce a roster update and welcome the new team to Wolves eSports.

Shortly after it was clear that we would have to rebuild the team after the season, we started to scout for a potential new team which is when we first found the team we now announce.

Their main focus will be on the DeSBL Advanced League with planned participation of ESL’s and other smaller tournaments.

Lineup Wolves eSports R6S:
Sven “Sven” Mucha
Gabriel “Brandy” Brandstätter
Darien “alvy” Weber
Niclas “Traxz” Kurz
Eric “desinfekt” H.
Jan “Shiido” B.
Emily “Foxy” A. (Analyst)

Statement Wolves eSports R6S:
“We’re very excited to be playing for Wolves eSports! Our main focus to play loads of tournaments such as the ESL and DeSBL tournaments and league where we aim get into the Ultimate League. When were not competing in a league or a tournament we will be practising in scrims. We’re really looking forward to make a name for ourselves playing for Wolves as we have a lot of potential and we’re aiming for the top.”

Having a team in the Advanced League playing under the banner of Wolves eSports is an appreciated step forwards and we can’t wait to see this young team play!

CSGO team disbands

By | Counter-Strike | No Comments

While we started the ESEA Intermediate and the 99Liga season with a newly built team and high hopes all around, the seasons itself were a rollercoaster of emotions that resulted in the team disbanding and barely finishing the 99Liga season.

The first few games of the ESEA season the team had to play with stand-ins to comply with the rules. However, a couple of forfeit wins meant that these stand-ins had to be used for much longer than we hoped for and the team didn’t get to play with the intended lineup as soon as we anticipated.

A lineup change forced the team to play with another stand-in and the killing blow was dealt by private issues. In the end, it has been a season to forget in which neither the players nor Wolves eSports can be blamed for how it went down. As the team has disbanded and their season ended, we wish them all the best for their future endeavors.

That being said, we are now actively looking for a new Counterstrike team for the next season.
If you and your team are interested in working with us, please reach out to us via:
Twitter (@wolves_esports)
or
email (andre@wolves-esports.com / patrick@wolves-esports.com)

Requirements:
– German teams: 99Damage Liga Division 3
– European teams: ESEA Intermediate or higher
– Age 18+
– Consistent lineup (~6 months)
– Appropriate and mature behaviour
