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!

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!
The team started the tournament with a win in the opening round against Nemiga Gaming with a score of 2-1. In the semifinals of the upper bracket we won 2-1 against the mighty Team Secret! 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 🏹

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.

Thank You SKADE Female

Since the beginning of our entry into esports, we have been committed to the community of CS:GO. When we created SKADE, we knew that CSGO Female would figure in our plans as there was a lot of community buzz and tournament support. kezziwOw, Hedje, ZAna-th, Flutura and Psycho have shown great resilience and passion when representing SKADE as a brand and a team in the EU esports community. We are indebted to their competitive spirit and the way in which they always professionally conducted themselves during their time here.

“Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic the female esports scene was hit real hard as partners and sponsors backed out due to a lack of events. Making it really hard for organizations to sustain lineups during this time. Which lead to our working relationship with the female roster to an end. From everyone at SKADE – I would like to thank the SKADE Female players for all their constant hard work and effort. We wish them the best of luck for their future!”
– Kim-Erik Aanes (CEO)
