SKADE CSGO Roster Update – 2021 Season

It has been a “not so well-kept secret”, but after standing in for our CSGO squad for a while now Kalin “KalubeR” Erenditsov has been made a permanent fixture!

In a move to find our rhythm in game and allow our players to play and perform at an optimal level in their preferred positions a change was needed. Thus, our youngest talent Blagoi “oxygeN” Dimitrov was benched, and trials began.

Kaluber has already left many in awe with his performances & winning multiple titles in the Tier 2 tournaments. A regular name in the Bulgarian scene, he is ready to showcase his talent and prove his mettle to the world now! Under our coach PnshR and IGL SHiPZ’s leadership combined with the help of the firepower of Duplicate, Rainwaker and KalubeR, we believe we have found a perfectly balanced team! A team that’s ruthless, risk taking and exciting to watch!

We already have achieved some high peaks in our journey so far but now it’s time we take it up a notch. While we welcome our new signing, we’d like to thank our star rifler ‘OxygeN’ for all the hard work and dedication he put in during his time at SKADE.
We wish him all the best on his new journey, we will definitely see him on the servers soon. 😊

“Not too happy we have to part ways with Oxygen because he has great skills in game but there was too big difference between the game vision of him and the rest of the team. I’m sure we will see Blagoi very soon in the active CS scene and he will show everyone what he is able to do!
KalubeR is well known young Bulgarian player, everyone in Bulgaria know about his potential and I’m very happy to have him in the team. He fit very well in our game and his point of view about the current meta and what to do in the team is almost same so its so easy to work with him.” – pNshr (Coach)

“I’m really excited to be joining SKADE. For me, it feels like a reunion because I’ve played with most of the guys in a team before, except SHiPZ and I’m glad SKADE trusted me and gave me that opportunity to play with them. I really believe we have everything to be considered as a top team in the near future and hope we can prove that.” – KalubeR


SKADE CS:GO 2021 will consist of:

Georgi “SHiPZ” Grigorov

Aleks “Rainwaker” Petrov

Denislav “Dennyslaw” Dimitrov

Viktor “Duplicate” Mitev

Kalin “KalubeR” Erenditsov

Coach: Nikolay “pNshr” Puanin

We can feel the excitement in the air and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for us!
Make sure to turn on the IEM: EU Closed Qualifier stream tomorrow as we will compete for the spot in the $105,000 USD main event of Intel Extreme Masters Season XVI – Fall.

Time to pop some heads!

Thank you, Spellan!

Today marks a day of change for SKADE’s CS:GO roster.  We have had a fantastic journey with our lineup so far and Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov has been a big part of it.

In a scene where changes are part of the game to keep everyone sharp. The turn has now come to our captain. He has been a part of reaching top 30 EU twice in this team and won several tournaments. So with a heavy heart we now part ways.

The time has come for SKADE to make new moves towards our goals. And as we part ways with SPELLAN, a new captain will shape up in the form of Alex “Rainwaker” Petrov. It will be one heck of a challenge for our young superstar, but the one he craves for.

“Working with Teodor has been a great experience from day one. He came into a team that really needed a leader, and he stepped up to the plate. We have had ups and downs together, but he has shown that he can always bounce back. This feature is why I feel confident that he will find a new home fast and reach his goals.” – Kim-Erik Aanes, CEO.

We wish SPELLAN all the best in his future endevours. And we will surely face him at the highest level soon!

Soltinn Veidimadr, PUBG

We’re always on a lookout for a challenge across various disciplines that are not in our current pool. After a lot of constant evaluation, we found a group of players that are capable enough to go head-to-head against some of the best teams in the world! Please welcome our latest PUBG PC Roster! You’ll see them wearing our colours in the upcoming DreamHack Winter Showdown Main Event – Europe.

Coach Saul ‘SauKKi’ Klemola had this to say about joining us:

“Joining SKADE means us the beginning of a new chapter. We can forget the worries we have had and focus more on the most important thing, gaming. SKADE is everything we have been looking for for so long. They share the same values as us and everything feels like home. We look most forward to the next LAN event we compete in. Feeling the atmosphere of the arena, meeting the staff of SKADE and of course raising the trophy!”

Here is what our CEO Kim-Erik ‘Zarotan’ Aanes had to say about the move:
“We have been trying to find a way into the PUBG scene for some time now and when this opportunity presented itself we did not hesitate for a second. The game has a loyal following and spectator numbers are growing, so this is another title where we can think long term. Another big stepping stone for us as a brand!“

Here’s the final PUBG PC Roster:

IGL Joona Närvänen aka NOOKIE

Miska Malkamäki aka Mise

Anttoni Helminen aka Sikora

Tuomas Mustaparta aka Anonymous

Coach: Saul Klemola aka SauKKi

Tusen takk, VALORANT!

It was a great ride with some outstanding moments but unfortunately today we bid farewell to our VALORANT Roster.

While VALORANT made quite an impression during its launch, but as time went by, it was unable to maintain its initial hype. Even the current status of coverage when it comes to EU Valorant is strenuous as most of the games are single elimination, BO1’s. Thereby making it difficult to follow the games and gain more exposure. Nevertheless, we believe VALORANT has yet to prove itself and we hope it does. We’ll monitor this one closely and look to get back into it sometime early next year.

We really appreciate the relentless hard work the boys put in trying to get past the tricky tournament formats. We would like to thank all the passionate and talented people who have been a part of this ride. We wish you the best for your future!

In the grand finals we met Nexus Gaming again but this time around the team made we had a clean victory of 2-0!

Here’s what the CEO Kim aka Zarotan has to say on winning a second title in a span of two weeks!

“OGA Counter Pit was another show of the skill that can be found in this team. The boys fought hard, kept their focus and when doing that they simply CAN NOT be stopped. At this point I am just in awe of their skill and I know there is just so much more potential under the surface as well.”


The team has been in excellent form over the past couple of weeks as they made a back to back to back grand finale appearance, while winning back to back tournaments! We are super excited to see how many more will we have under our belt until the end of the season! #LetsHunt 🏹

VALORANT Roster Update

Our effort towards building a strong esports brand continues with a small roster shuffle in our VALORANT Team!  After a lot of consideration and keeping in the mind about the upcoming ‘VALORANT First Strike’ qualifications, we’d like to announce that Jason ‘Lei’ Beach and Kalle ‘KP1337’ Persson will be replacing Sebbz and Manneten respectively on the VALORANT roster!

While KP1337 is a former CSGO player having previously played for teams such as Epsilon Hype and Rogue Academy. He brings a lot of experience and is a rock in-game, someone you can always count on.
Lei, on the other hand, is new to the esports scene and is eager to make his mark in the it. He brings the crucial mental aspect to the team, both ingame and outside the game.

Here’s what the IGL LATEKS has to say on the roster shuffle:

LATEKS:  “We haven’t had the results we were hoping for recently, so we came to a conclusion to make some changes within the team. Bringing in a new coach, player and changing up some roles within the team. We’re certain you will see a new SKADE moving forward, and can’t wait to showcase it in First Strike.”

From everyone at SKADE – We would like to thank Sebbz and Manneten for all their constant hard work and effort. We wish them the best of luck for their future!
