SK Gaming

SK Gaming is an international multi-gaming organization, located in Oberhausen, Germany. The team was founded in 1997, under the name 'Schroet Kommando.' SK Gaming currently has multiple teams represented in many different eSports titles, such as League of Legends, Hearthstone, and more. The organization entered the SMITE scene in 2012.


History

Pre Launch

SK Gaming was the first major organization to acquire a SMITE team, first picking up a team back in 2012, during the closed beta. Accomplishing excellent results in online play, the team was able to continue that success in their first major LAN when they took 2nd at the Gamescom 2013 Invitation, just barely losing to Cognitive EU 2-1 in a best of 3 grand finals. In November, the team hit a standstill when team captain, Psiyo, decided to step down from his leadership role.[1] The team decided to leave behind SK, and started their own team of Azzur.

Leaving SK without a SMITE team, in February the organization decided to pick up TeamQ who were seen as serious contenders to place highly in the SMITE Launch Tournament. After qualifying as the 3rd seed from Europe, the team went on to place 4th in the Launch Tournament, as they fell to Team Dignitas in the losers bracket.

Season 1

After the Launch Tournament, EnQu decided to leave the team and join Cloud9, while proxyQQ wanted to leave the jungle, decided to test the waters of free agency. SK chose to fill their open spots, with two players who had very minimal competitive experience. Zyrhoes joined as the new jungler, while ManiaKK took over in the solo lane. After having a rough regular season, the team was forced into the EU Wildcards where they were forced to fight out to make it to the Regional Championship. After taking 1st in wildcards, the team went on to finish 2nd the Season 1 EU Regional Championship and qualify as for the SMITE World Championship.

The team went on to beat both We Love Bacon from Brazil, and Cognitive Red to advance to the SWC semifinals. However the team fell to both Titan eSports and Cognitive Red, losing 2-0 to both in a best of 3 series.

Season 2

After taking 4th in the SMITE World Championship, the team chose to make a role swap and move CaptainTwig into the jungle and put Zyrhoes into the mid lane.
