Things are moving faster than ever before in esports and our activity in SKADE is no exception to that fact. It has been a vision of mine for some time now to come up with a monthly summary of our activity and now it is finally time to get started.
The idea is to have shorter reports, but March was eventful for us so ill try to keep things a bit short and sweet. However, we love having tons of stuff going on and packed months, so it is a luxury challenge.
Firstly, fan engagement is what esports is all about and we always strive to engage in new ways. With the limited staff we have it is extra important for us to be effective in our work. We started the March madness with the launch of the official SKADE App. For us this gives our fans a new way to keep track of all our activity, matches, social media and more in one simple app. Feel free to check it out here.
This impacts the most important thing we have as a team, our social media numbers. We have had a goal of growing our numbers naturally as we want our fans to engage with us and stay active rather than having a high % of “ghost” followers like many teams have. With this in mind March yielded growth in all our socials, bringing our reach up by 15.63% compared to February!
Rainbow 6 siege has been something we have been looking at for months now and in March we could finally reveal our line-up for Ubisoft’s Nordic Championship. We now field a team of players from all over Europe and hope to make an impact in the league. Exciting times to come for sure.
We started our journey in mobile esports at the start of the year, and CoD Mobile has been a revelation for us. All of a sudden, we were part of a super active community with passionate fans, tons of activity and highly motivated players. Our squad wrapped up March with 3 tournament wins and 4 runners up finishes! I can’t wait to get more involved with this scene!
Counter-Strike Global Offensive has been the flagship team of our brand from day one! In March we finally had the pleasure of announcing that our roster was once again complete as we signed Georgi “SHiPZ” Grigorov. This star player fits our profile perfectly as a young, hungry and super talented player. Even tho he has experience from the highest level, this young man is still only 20 years old and with that our teams average age comes in at only 19.9 years old!
Sounds risky? Not the way we see it! We are looking to become a top tier org in the long run and we want to have players that can stay with us on this journey. And I say we’re off to a GREAT start. March has been great to us as we have already won a tournament and qualified for 2 other big ones. More importantly we are now rank #34 in the world according to HLTV and we currently hold a 15 Strong win streak!!
