Copenhagen Wolves Are No More

Copenhagen Wolves Are No More

It might not come as much of a surprise to learn, but Copenhagen Wolves have announced that - with immediate effect - the company will no longer be sponsoring any teams. This means the League Of Legends team, CS:GO team and Hearthstone team will no longer be competing in tournaments. The announcement came via the official website from co-owner Jakob Lund Kristensen, who declared it to be due to other commitments for both owners. "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," said Kristensen in the post. "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." He did add that there's scope for the Copenhagen Wolves to live on, should anyone be interested in taking over the brand: "Should there be someone out there willing and able to take over this project the right way," adds Kristensen, "we would definitely love to hear from you as we still believe in the brand and the story of Copenhagen Wolves." Copenhagen Wolves was best known for its League Of Legends team, where it would go on to become a considerable contender in the various eSports events based on the game. Many of the players of Copenhagen Wolves would go on to become recognisable and feared League players, though it would suffer a controversy when Dentist is suspended until LCS Week 4 due to violating the rules of the tournament. Both owners will be rivals now as Ninjas In Pyjamas and Astralis are both well-respected CS:GO teams, meaning Copenhagen Wolves is essentially dividing into two fearsome Counter-Strike teams.
