Copenhagen Wolves schließt die Pforte

07.06.2016 10:57

Die dänische Organisation Copenhagen Wolves hat bekannt gegeben, dass sie mit sofortiger Wirkung ihre Unternehmungen im eSport beenden. Somit steht das LoL und CS:GO-Team ohne Organisation da. Als Grund wird angegeben, dass beide Führungsmitglieder Diglife und Jakob Lund Kristensen nicht mehr genügend Zeit aufwenden können um die Organisation adäquat zu führen. Während Diglife noch bei den Schweden von Ninjas in Pyjamas involviert ist, mischt der Gründer Kristensen noch bei der dänischen CS:GO-Organisation Astralis mit.

Statement Jakob Lund Kristensen, Gründer:

It is with great sadness that I today announce the cease of all operations for Copenhagen Wolves with immediate effect.It has been quite a ride since we started in 2009 on a little internet cafe in Copenhagen and it has been some of the greatest highs and hardest lows of my life. We set out with the best of intentions at a time where actually making a living off e-sport was for a very small select group of people. The first couple of events was founded out of our own pockets and was traveled to as way too many people in my parents way too small car. If you had told me back then how big Copenhagen Wolves would become one day, I would have laughed and told you that you were crazy.
We managed to create one of the most polarizing brands in Danish e-sport during the last few years but also one of the most controversial. To paint a picture of a fairy tale where everything was happiness would be very wrong, we definitely took our beatings and learned quite a few lessons the hardest way possible. I must state however that I also feel quite a sense of pride when considering all the amazingly talented people we helped foster and move up in the e-sport world. With both owners of the company fully engaged in other projects, Diglife with Ninjas in Pyjamas and me personally with Astralis, this decision seems to be the only one that really makes sense. We would have loved to keep this great brand alive but with ownership so far removed from the daily grind we would never be able to provide our players, partners and fans the dedication they deserve.
Should there be someone out there willing and able to take over this project the right way, we would definitely love to hear from you as we still believe in the brand and the story of Copenhagen Wolves. Anyone interested in doing so, should feel free to contact me via the information given below.
Lastly, I want to extend a special thank you to every single player who ever wore the Copenhagen Wolves jersey and especially the partners who made it all possible.
