Comrade Gaming was formed in early 2015 by a group of friends looking to experience Call of Duty in a more competitive environment. Playing regularly in online tournaments and approaching the game with a tactical mindset, it became clear that competing at the highest level would require a huge amount of skill, commitment and support. Throughout the course of the year our focus began to shift as we directed increasing amounts of energy into what had become our new ambition, the creation of a multi-disciplinary esports organisation.
Towards the end of 2015 we made our first foray into the world of esports with the acquisition of a contingent of Finnish Hearthstone players; Heib, Janetzky, and Ersee found success in numerous online tournaments and we proudly sent Janetzky to represent us at Dreamhack Winter, our first LAN appearance. Shortly after this we sought out further expansion in the form of an up-and-coming UK Rocket League team. In addition to winning various Gfinity and ESL tournaments, the team exceeded expectations by reaching the group stage of the inaugural RLCS season and were consistently ranked in the top 10 of the EU power rankings.
Despite our early successes, commitments outside of the organisation led to us taking a year long hiatus from active operations. Fortunately, we found ourselves in a position to return in early 2017 with new goals and a redesigned brand identity. It is our passion to cement the organisation at the top of the EU esports scene and we will always aim to prioritise the needs of our players, giving them the support they require to reach their full potential. Loyalty Shapes Success.
