REPUBLEAGUE Season 1 Champions!!

REPUBLEAGUE Season 1 just concluded and we grabbed the best of 5 grand final in a 3 – 0 fashion!

REPUBLEAGUE Season 1 turned out to be a rollercoaster of constant action. After winning the first European qualifier with some really close games, the guys were feeling confident for the swiss stage. However we had a unexpected start and started our run with a loss and we had to go all five rounds to secure our advancement from swiss.

In the playoffs the guys had a completely different mindset tho! With a clean run of victories and only dropping a single map in 10 maps the guys showed everyone what they are made of! Taking down Young Ninjas, Endpoint and SAW (TWICE!) it was no small feat.

This marks the biggest single tournament win to date for SKADE as a team in terms of prize money, and also a turning point for the team as they have been a bit off their groove lately. Time to charge up, relax and reset as there’s plenty more action to come!

“We had a rough period the last couple of weeks but it just felt like we were in shape when we played this tournament.Really happy overall with the team performance and we are hoping to get back to form in the upcoming weeks” – Viktor “Duplicate” Mitev

“After a though period with the team, this win is a huge confidence boost for us. We are gonna show everyone that we aren’t the next team that has a honeymoon period and then goes silent. Also thanks to anyone who supports us, it means a lot and it can really affect our days possitively!” – Blagoi “oxygeN” Dimitrov

“I am just beyond proud to see the boys take this one home! They have been in a rough place lately and trying to find your flow after the amazing run we had can be really hard. Today they had their killer focus back and they came into the server to win and nothing else mattered. I still feel their journey has barely started so people need to wake up and tune in for these guys!” – CEO, Kim-Erik “Zarotan” Aanes

Champions of European Development Championship 3

We are once again triumphant in a tournament as we have been crowned the champions of European Development Championship 3!

In a long fought battle where we had to fight a serious of tough opponents the guys made it all the way! Bagging them a nice win of 17.500$ and a bootcamp in Malta at a 5 star resort. Just what these hunters need after a wild spree of matches!

We started our journey with a group stage, where our group had some serious teams in ENCE, GameAgents and Double Poney. The guys came in well prepared tho, and made quick work of Double Poney in a Bo1, before taking down ENCE 2 – 0 in the winners match.

With that it was time for playoffs and we ran into some serious opponents right away as 1WIN was waiting for us. All 3 maps had to be played, and in OT of the third map we finally closed out the series 2 – 1. Next up was team SINNERS, another tough opponent. We dropped the first map in OT, but the guys picked up momentum and closed it out in the next two maps and took the series 2 – 1!.

In the grand final we once again came up against our friends ENCE, from the group stages. This time the Finnish side really showed up to fight and the entire 3 map series was a slugfest! We had a solid start with taking their map pick, but they got right back at us and took our map. Our boys would not have any of it and on the third and final map they closed it out with a quick 16 – 6 win on Mirage!

Give it up for the hunters as they once more bring down their prey and bag another trophy!! #LetsHunt

Did you know we have 2 of the top 10 plays in April 2021? :O
