Sector:MOSTBET CHAMPIONS!!

Another title has been secured as we come out victorious in the duel against ESPADA in the grand final of Sector:MOSTBET Cup. With it comes a 7.000$ winning and we get our first tournament win of 2020!!

Our road to the final was in no way a simple one as we had to fight our way in the group stages where we beat HellRaisers and then Pompa. We then fell against Tricked and had to fight for our survival in the lower brackets. There was no stopping the boys tho and they plowed their way trough to the final with another win against Pompa and a sweet revenge against Tricked.

It’s now time for a much needed day of rest, before qualifiers during the weekend and next week we have both LOOT.Bet season 6 and MDL Relegation tournament starting up. Following us really does ensure that you get pretty much non-stop action 😉

This win means a lot of me and the team because it’s our first 1st placed tournament after I joined the team. I’m so happy for the boys because they show me that they are improving every day on the psychic level and keep their heads fresh and calm until the end of the match. We have had a crazy stacked schedule for the past 3-4 weeks and played every day except 2 or 3 (not sure :p), but the show must go on! – We’re ready to grind everything.

Next officials are scheduled for this weekend with Parimatch League hosted by SLTV. And next week we have MDL relegation tournament – It is still our main goal to get the slot for next MDL Season” – Nikolay “pNshr” Paunin

This win is very important for us because we got demotivated after not going to Los Angeles because of the visa issues. We had an amazing run in the closed qualifier after beating such good teams. The playoffs started a little bit scary because we lost our first bo3 and went to lower bracket. Afterwards we were winning every bo3, but were losing every single first map :D. The atmosphere was very good, everyone was calm and we were just hitting our shots.” – Alex “rainwaker” Petrov (grand final MVP)

PARTNER ANNOUNCEMENT – KVARØY ARCTIC

PARTNER ANNOUNCEMENT – KVARØY ARCTIC

We are proud to announce a long-term partnership agreement between SKADE and the Norwegian company KVARØY Arctic. The parties has for some time discussed the potential of a cooperation which now is being set into motion!

SKADE, as a Norwegian founded organization has good knowledge of the Norwegian Salmon industry which we now can proudly share, into as many corners of the gaming-world as possible. The main reason is the health benefits of this product which for decades and decades have been proven as one of the most nutritious products you can eat.

Being a professional athlete within gaming, as well as other sports, is more than just practicing to hit the mouse at the correct time, sacrificing your queen to ultimately win battle, or pushing the gas pedal to the bottom in your F1 car. In all of these and most sports you need your brain to function at the very highest peak for as long as possible. You need to make the right decisions, often in milliseconds.

Does nutrition play a part? Very much so, especially in the long run!

“Kvarøy Arctic is redefining the salmon farming industry through innovation and deep concern for the future of the fish we raise and the waters we live on. We have partnered in the development of the non-GMO food we provide our salmon. This has resulted in an omega-3 content that is twice as much as other farmed salmon, and a Fish In / Fish Out ratio of .48 to 1.

The flavour of Kvarøy Arctic salmon is informed by our breathtaking location. Fish have a merroir that reflect the waters in which they are raised. These waters are Arctic cool and clear with a deep fjord current that keeps the water fresh and help exercise the salmon, reducing fat levels and giving this beautiful fish a pristine clean flavour. Crisp and bright like our waters with a slight brininess of the sea.” – Kvarøy Arctic

Announcement of Head Coach “pNshr”

Announcement of Head Coach “pNshr”

We are proud to announce that SKADE has secured the services of veteran coach Nikolay “pNshr” Pauninto as the new head coach of our CS:GO roster. Nikolay signed with SKADE after being spending a year with Copenhagen Flames. His desire to work with his native Bulgarians was a perfect match for SKADE’s Bulgarian lineup.

SKADE has improved immeasurably over the past months, and the roster’s potential to reach the top tier leagues meant that we need someone that was 100% dedicated to ensuring their success. This responsibility was something Nikolay wanted to be part of, and we quickly found common ground. He’s already been working with the team for several weeks, but he has officially signed on with SKADE ahead of our next event in Copenhagen Games.

Previous Head Coach and CEO Kim-Erik “Zarotan” Aanes will continue on as CEO as we expand our esports efforts across several projects. Kim-Erik will continue to be involved with our Counter-Strike team, the change now gives him more opportunity to focus on growing our brand. With Aanes’ oversight, pNshr will focus on strategy and player performance in-game.

Aanes has this to say on pNshr’s addition: “Based on the improvement we have seen in this roster and our goal of reaching the top tier scene, a coach that can dedication 100% of his time to the team is what we needed. pNshr has already worked with the guys for some time, and I can say that he is what we needed as we look forward to several online tournaments and Copenhagen Games in April.”
Please welcome Nikolay to the SKADE family, and for those teams who will face our Bulgarian force in the future; good luck

PRESS RELEASE: FLASHPOINT LOS ANGELES

PRESS RELEASE: FLASHPOINT LOS ANGELES

Through February we’ve been extremely proud of our team to have overcome the European Qualifier, granting us a spot at the Global Qualifier of Flashpoint League. Defeating several teams higher ranked than us, going on a 6/1 win/loss run we gained one of only two tickets, finishing second among 32 teams total in the European qualifiers.

It is with great sadness we have to cancel the trip due to a series of VISA application issues at the US Bulgarian Embassy, where our team and coach were declined their VISA`s as a result we are not able to participate in this event.

We want to thank the lawyers from FaceIT and those at the Embassy trying their best to help us with the VISA’s. We understand they had to do everything by the book, we are sad to say that it all came down to a misunderstanding about the potential winnings from the tournament.

We as a team are upset about this, but again this is not the end of the world! With the experience about how this process works will surely give us ammunition not to fail at a later stage. Because there will for sure will be several later stages!

We are practicing and prepared for new challenges and we have just begun our preparations for the Copenhagen Games in about 1.5 months.

Stay tuned Denmark. We are coming!
