Tusen takk, VALORANT!

It was a great ride with some outstanding moments but unfortunately today we bid farewell to our VALORANT Roster.

While VALORANT made quite an impression during its launch, but as time went by, it was unable to maintain its initial hype. Even the current status of coverage when it comes to EU Valorant is strenuous as most of the games are single elimination, BO1’s. Thereby making it difficult to follow the games and gain more exposure. Nevertheless, we believe VALORANT has yet to prove itself and we hope it does. We’ll monitor this one closely and look to get back into it sometime early next year.

We really appreciate the relentless hard work the boys put in trying to get past the tricky tournament formats. We would like to thank all the passionate and talented people who have been a part of this ride. We wish you the best for your future!

VALORANT Roster Update

Our effort towards building a strong esports brand continues with a small roster shuffle in our VALORANT Team!  After a lot of consideration and keeping in the mind about the upcoming ‘VALORANT First Strike’ qualifications, we’d like to announce that Jason ‘Lei’ Beach and Kalle ‘KP1337’ Persson will be replacing Sebbz and Manneten respectively on the VALORANT roster!

While KP1337 is a former CSGO player having previously played for teams such as Epsilon Hype and Rogue Academy. He brings a lot of experience and is a rock in-game, someone you can always count on.
Lei, on the other hand, is new to the esports scene and is eager to make his mark in the it. He brings the crucial mental aspect to the team, both ingame and outside the game.

Here’s what the IGL LATEKS has to say on the roster shuffle:

LATEKS:  “We haven’t had the results we were hoping for recently, so we came to a conclusion to make some changes within the team. Bringing in a new coach, player and changing up some roles within the team. We’re certain you will see a new SKADE moving forward, and can’t wait to showcase it in First Strike.”

From everyone at SKADE – We would like to thank Sebbz and Manneten for all their constant hard work and effort. We wish them the best of luck for their future!

VALORANT Roster Update: Manneten

If you’ve been following us on our social media platforms, it’s no secret that Manneten is on a bootcamp with us. So, we’d formally like to announce that Manneten will be replacing PHYRN, as PHYRN decided to step down from the roster due to struggling to find a balance between playing fulltime and keeping his school in check.

We respect PHYRN’s decision and wish him good luck for his future endeavours and thank him for his services. Replacing PHYRN was a difficult task since he had gelled very well with the team’s style of play. So we were looking for someone who can click with our gameplay while adding his own energy and skills to it. EPZZ, LATEKS and sebbz already knew a well known Overwatch player who’s also synonymous with insane aim shots. We decided to give Manneten a chance and things ticked off well!

Here’s what the IGL and the Coach has to say on the latest signing: IGL, LATEKS: “PHYRN decided to take a break from competitive play to focus on university. Both me and EPZZ knew Manneten from our time in Overwatch and he’s an irl friend of sebbz. We gave him a shot and things clicked instantly. He’s a very calm player that brings a lot of experience and maturity to the team.”

Team coach, sebbz: “I have played with Manneten since the start of beta both with infected and YaB and I know how much of a hard worker he is, he also has a lot of experience coming from the top Overwatch scene and has always had insane aim, I’m very hyped to have Manne onboard”

Here’s our final VALORANT lineup:
Sebastian ‘sebbz’ Fredriksson – Coach
Oliwer ‘LATEKS’ Fahlander – IGL
Tim ‘Manneten’ Bylund
Linus ‘Limpone’ Wecksell
Gabriel ‘shew’ Gessle
Andreas ‘EPZZ’ Vallvingskog

Bootcamp for the VALORANT Team

The VALORANT Team’s Bootcamp will mark their first appearance together as a team. The bootcamp was crucial since we had a minor shuffle in the roster. We decided to bring in Manneten as a replacement for PHYRN, as PHYRN decided to step down from the roster due to motivational issues and struggling to find a balance between playing fulltime and keeping his school in check. The bootcamp commences on 14th of September and ends on 20th of September 2020.

Here’s what the coach and the captain has to say about the bootcamp:
Team coach, sebbz: “This bootcamp will be a great head start for us on the new meta and to build some more team chemistry. We’re stoked about this opportunity and can’t wait to show our progress in the coming weeks!”
IGL, LATEKS: “It feels good to finally be able to meet all my teammates in person and get some quality progress done this week. As we also just got Manneten into the team it’s also important for us to get a jump on practice to get ahead of some lost time.”

Here’s the current roster:
Sebastian ‘sebbz’ Fredriksson – Coach
Oliwer ‘LATEKS’ Fahlander – IGL
Tim ‘Manneten’ Bylund
Linus ‘Limpone’ Wecksell
Gabriel ‘shew’ Gessle
Andreas ‘EPZZ’ Vallvingskog
