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!

OGA Counter Pit Season 8: CHAMPIONS


OGA Counter PIT Season 5 is an online European tournament organized by One Game Agency which is backed by sponsors such as AMD and Sapphire Technology, among others. 

The team took a lion’s share in the $15,000 tournament prize pool!

Later in the upper bracket finals, we rolled over the Romanian side Nexus gaming with a score of 2-1. 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!

cyberPRO Champions

Today marked a big day for us as we came out victorious in the cyberPRO Series #2!! And not only that, we had a perfect run!

This year has been a strange one for us in many ways and we have had our fair share of bad luck. That makes this win all the more important to the boys, as they finally got to show their full potential.

We started the tournament taking down lvlUP esports and Golden Knights gaming in the group stages and thus securing a good seed going into the playoffs.

The playoffs had some serious names listed and in our run we had to take down NAVI-Junior, Team Singularity and finally Lyngby Vikings.

With tons and tons of tournaments to come we are glad to see that the boys are hungry and ready to fight! We are excited to see what’s to come!

Bellum Gens Elite – Stara Zagora

This week we had the pleasure of attending our first LAN event after the covid outbreak. With 4 other invited teams and 5 teams that made it past the open qualifiers, we were ready to battle it out over the weekend.

We got a bumpy start as we ran into an unexpected loss in the first match of the group stages to MBAPPEEK. However we picked things up again and after a run in the lower brackets we got to the playoffs.

Here we faced our Bulgarian rivals FATE for the semi-finals! It ended up in a BO3 slugfest where we came out on top 2 – 1 in the end. This was an important battle for us and one of the highlights of the year.

In the grand final we once again came up against our round 1 opponents in MBAPPEEK. Once again the audience got to witness an amazing series of games! In the firs map of the series, we needed 4 overtimes to conclude it. MBAPPEEK came out victorious in that one, but we bounced back with a win on map 2 of the series. The 3rd map of the series was another hard fought map, but in  the end MBAPPEEK closed it out.

We came out in 2nd place of the tournaments and with that landed one of our strongest results of the year! With the result the boys also took home $2.500 and a great performance! We cant wait to see what comes up next.

VALORANT Roster Update: Manneten

If you’ve been following us on our social media platforms, it’s no secret that Manneten is on a bootcamp with us. So, we’d formally like to announce that Manneten will be replacing PHYRN, as PHYRN decided to step down from the roster due to struggling to find a balance between playing fulltime and keeping his school in check.

We respect PHYRN’s decision and wish him good luck for his future endeavours and thank him for his services. Replacing PHYRN was a difficult task since he had gelled very well with the team’s style of play. So we were looking for someone who can click with our gameplay while adding his own energy and skills to it. EPZZ, LATEKS and sebbz already knew a well known Overwatch player who’s also synonymous with insane aim shots. We decided to give Manneten a chance and things ticked off well!

Here’s what the IGL and the Coach has to say on the latest signing: IGL, LATEKS: “PHYRN decided to take a break from competitive play to focus on university. Both me and EPZZ knew Manneten from our time in Overwatch and he’s an irl friend of sebbz. We gave him a shot and things clicked instantly. He’s a very calm player that brings a lot of experience and maturity to the team.”

Team coach, sebbz: “I have played with Manneten since the start of beta both with infected and YaB and I know how much of a hard worker he is, he also has a lot of experience coming from the top Overwatch scene and has always had insane aim, I’m very hyped to have Manne onboard”

Here’s our final VALORANT lineup:
Sebastian ‘sebbz’ Fredriksson – Coach
Oliwer ‘LATEKS’ Fahlander – IGL
Tim ‘Manneten’ Bylund
Linus ‘Limpone’ Wecksell
Gabriel ‘shew’ Gessle
Andreas ‘EPZZ’ Vallvingskog
