After an incredible weekend our amazing Call of Duty Mobile squad can claim their title as Brazil’s number one team and gear up for worlds!
For the past month the guys have been bootcamping to make sure they were as ready as could be for the final stage of the qualifiers. During the camp they have shown impressive form and as the main event came close there seemed to be no stopping them.
As the qualifier started it quickly became clear for anyone watching that the guys were as hungry as they seemed. After 3 solid matches the guys won the upper bracket and with that they had already secured their spot in Worlds. The grand final brought them the only loss they had in the qualifier as they fell to the Mexican powerhouse that is Zygnus esports.
May was a much-needed month for us in SKADE as many tournaments were running early stages and we were invited directly to the later stages. Meaning we had a lot fewer matches this month than we normally do. So that allowed for us in management to finally catch up on a few things, bring in new crew and close out some partnerships.
With more time to focus on what actually matters to us, our fans, and the people we engage with. We came up with tons of ideas for the time to come and people can expect to see new content popping up all over the place. One important part of what is to come is a new partnership with one of the biggest tournament platforms there is Challengermode. Together we Challengermode we now have our own landing page on their platform where we will start hosting community and fan driven tournaments. This is also a big part of our future plans for expansion into new game titles. With almost half the tournament/match activity of a normal month we still managed to reach our social media goals and the growth of 2021 continues!!
Did I mention we had fewer matches? Well, we had some BIG ones!!! In CS:GO we had another amazing run, the PUBG squad showed what they were made of and in COD Mobile the qualifiers for COD Worlds are live!
We started the CS:GO month with winning another tournament as we were crowned the champions of European Development Championship #3 on May 2nd!! We continued the month with taking down some of the biggest names in Europe. On May 17th we hit a new ALL TIME HIGH as we were placed at rank #18 in the world by HLTV. 😉
Our PUBG squad was ready to show what they were made of as the qualifier for this years first Major came to and end. They secured a really solid 3rd place finish in the EU qualifier and with that their spot in the PUBG Continental Series #4!! Oh, and they are currently sitting in 2nd place in Frag League Season 6 as well!! June will be packed with action on the highest level there is for these guys!
The COD squad is pretty much destroying anything that gets in their way these days! With a 38 – 12 match records in May where they won two tournaments, finished 2nd in two AND made a clean sweep in the first round of the qualifier for COD World Championships, we are all left in awe!! The mobile esports scene is blowing up and Call of Duty will surely be a main title there for years to come. We are proud to be a part of this journey and we can’t wait to see what’s to come next.
With last month being huge for us as we were able to bring in four new staff members, May was looking great even before it started! With the addition of new staff we were able to take our administrative work to a whole new level. New partnerships that will be announced in short succession have already been made. New strategic plans have been set into motion and we are making moves that we hope can elevate Norwegian e-sports to the next level!
With new staff in place, I have also been able to tune my focus back to where I have my main skills. The esports side of operations and I am already cooking together plans for our next moves AND getting ready to take our current activities to a new level.
“Time is a luxury in any startup and with new co-workers in place I am finally able to use my time in a more effective way. With a bigger team comes more motivation, more energy and capability to activate more plans. Our team is bursting with energy now and there is no stopping this train now! We are our for new prey and the hunt has just started!!” – CEO, Kim-Erik Aanes
We got off to a flying start with our Call of Duty Mobile team and have been performing at a high level in the Brazilian scene. However, with time comes change and as COD World Championships got announced this time has come.
There will be 2 changes to our active roster for now and with that we will be parting ways with Caio Almeida “Joker” Franca as he has found a new home. And Matheus “MTS” Braga will be our 6th player for now due to age restrictions in COD World Championships.
With this we would like to welcome our two new hunters, Igor “Fal” Falcão Bezerra and Leonardo “Leozin” Vieira Leão!! They have already started playing with the rest of the squad and can be seen live in plenty of tournaments coming up over the next few weeks. With the addition of these new players we hope to take our game to the next level and be fully prepared by the time World’s comes knocking!
Give them a warm welcome to the family!
Atualização da Line de COD Mobile
Começamos bem com nossa equipe de Call of Duty Mobile e temos atuado em alto nível no cenário brasileiro. No entanto, com o tempo, vêm as mudanças e como o COD World Championships foi anunciado, essa hora chegou.
Haverá 2 mudanças no nosso time ativo por enquanto e com isso estaremos nos separando de Caio Almeida “Joker” Franca, pois ele encontrou um novo lar. E Matheus “MTS” Braga será o nosso 6º jogador por agora, devido às restrições de idade no COD World Championships.
Com isso, gostaríamos de dar as boas-vindas aos nossos dois novos caçadores, Igor “Fal” Falcão Bezerra e Leonardo “Leozin” Vieira Leão!! Eles já começaram a jogar com o resto do time e podem ser vistos ao vivo em muitos torneios que acontecerão nas próximas semanas. Com a adição desses novos jogadores, esperamos levar nosso jogo ao próximo nível e estar totalmente preparados quando o mundial chegar!
Esports moves at a great speed and as it develops we strive to keep up with it all. We are now taking another step towards the top and with that we proudly announce the signing of a Call of Duty Mobile roster!
For some time now we have been looking at different game titles and teams in the mobile scene, but our minds landed on COD and this amazing group of players from Brazil.
They will be bringing you guys a ton of action in the time to come and it will give us a new and fresh take on Instagram and Youtube that we have longed for.
“Me and my team are very glad for this, I will ensure that we give it all for SKADE and our story is just beginning…” – PABZERA, IGL
“This is another of our long planned moves towards reaching new grounds in esports. As we now pick up one of the strongest teams in South America’s COD scene we gain a new demographic. And it matches well with our soon to be announced updates as well. I’m ready to see what this amazing squad can bring to the table!” – Kim-Erik Aanes, CEO
So please join us in welcoming to the SKADE army this pack of wild berserkers ready to raid the world of CoD!!
