June brings SKADE to new heights!

As we are still trying to land on our feet after all the moments June brought us, we are already well into July. What did June bring? Just our biggest tournament win to date, our first MAJOR and our social media reach went trough the roof!!

I’ll try to summarize it all up in a quick note as always, but SKADE has A LOT going on!

Fan Engagement

Well, it turns out taking part in a Major brings in a few viewers 😉 We were on fire in all 3 of our main esports titles and that really showed in our stats. With an estimated 8.000.000+ unique viewers in our matches on twitch in June we DESTROYED our old record :O This gives us valuable information to work with towards our future tournaments. Having documented numbers to show sponsors/partners is a completely different game than just guessing or trying to make estimations.

Esports

So, that major I mentioned? Our PUBG squad made their way into PUBG Continental Series 4: Europe and with that our first ever major was secured. Not only did they make it there, they landed a 7th place finish and secured some nice money, but more importantly they got more PGI points!!

Only four tournaments in 2021 will give points towards PUBG Global Invitational and we have made it into and gotten points from both so far. July brings the 3rd one and we aim to be there as well!

That’s not all for the PUBG squad tho. June also brought the final rounds of Frag League Season 6 and the boys locked in a 2nd place finish here as well 😉

The PUBG squad was not the only SKADE squad with a big month. The CS:GO squad were in the final stages of REPUBLEAGUE Season 1 and they were hungry for another tournament victory. In the grand final we ran into the Portuguese powerhouse SAW. With a 1 map lead from winning the upper bracket, our boys came into the final with confidence and in a dominant fashion we took the final 3 – 0!!

This landed us the biggest prize winning we have had in our short journey and a nice bonus for our guys as we approach the player holidays in mid, July. Not only that, we finally get one of those epic looking trophies for our trophy wall 😉

SKADE

Esport never sleeps and the same seems to be the rule for the staff of SKADE. We have been hard at work securing new partnerships and strategic partners. During the player break next month we are excited to announce the first two of these. We have set a goal of always doing a bit more than expected from us and that means putting in a bit more work than most.

“We have a fantastic team, and it really shows. The stuff going on behind the scenes here is nothing short of amazing! And knowing what resources we have compared to our competition; it blows my mind. Even tho summer holidays have hit here in Norway, people are working every available moment and it inspires and energizes me!” – CEO, Kim-Erik Aanes

What a start we had

What a start we had

What a start we have had!

To think that we launched only a few months ago and today, we stand as champions of yet another tournament as we win DAT Team Cup 🤩

2019 has been nothing short of amazing for us as we have shown everyone that hard work pays off. We started with bold predictions that we would be a part of the top 30 scene in EU at the end of the year. Guess what? We now sit at #25 😎 We said we would win at least 1 tournament.. we won 2! 😁

As we move forward we will focus on not just climbing the ranks in CS, but also growing the organisation in all ways we can. More content, more fan engagement, more staff and more game titles. 2020 will be the year of SKADE. 😉

“2019 has been one heck of a ride! For me personally it feels great to be back in management of a team that’s capable of performing at the highest level of esports again. My goal has always been to prove that passion and actually caring for your players and staff get’s you to the top. And with the foundations we have set in 2019, I am confident that 2020 will be even more amazing. The players are passionate, the staff really cares and we have found that family feeling.” – CEO, Kim-Erik Aanes

“I joined SKADE 2 months ago, of course every beginning is really hard and when I’m joining as an IGL we basically have to start from scratch. However we’ve been putting lots of hours into our game and even tho we had some ups and downs I am really happy with the way we are ending this year. Not only because of the wins lately, but also because I can see real improvement. I also want to say that I am really surprised with the organisation and the people in it, everyone is really nice and everyone really cares about all the players and is trying to help with everything possible! I Think in 2020 we can become a solid contender to the better teams and prove to the world that we can do a lot of damage.” – IGL, Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov

“It’s been a year with a lot of ups and downs for me, but it surely ended on a high. I joined Bpro back in January, where we had to go trough a lot of changes with players, roles etc. We still managed to compete on a decent level and take down some good teams, but in September our contracts were about to expire and we got a great offer from SKADE and we opted to sign with them. I’m not going to lie and say it was an easy choice, because the previous org helped us a lot and especially the CEO who brought in a sports psychologist that was really beneficial to us and a crucial part of my development. Our new adventure started when we signed with SKADE. Even tho SKADE is a new org, the people behind it are really experienced and really want to help with everything they know. The guys are always in touch with us and take care of what we do both inside and outside of the game. We understand how important that is and really appreciate it! They were so kind to us that at one point we couldn’t believe that it was true, but it was. We got to meet each other at a bootcamp in Norway and now I am really happy and glad that we have these guys holding our backs! – Denislav “dennyslaw” Dimitrov

With these words and kind statements we wish all our followers and fans a Happy New Year!! And we hope you stay with us for all the great things to come in 2020 🥳🥳
