We welcome the first official team to the launch of Raise Your Edge Gaming. We start with Playerunknown´s Battlegrounds and welcome the guys from “CHARGE”. Since the beginning of the qualification rounds for the PUBG Starladder 2019 this team was set as “most wanted” by our Scouter. We are proud to welcome this team.
Statement by bencb (Owner RYE):
“I am super excited to announce our first esports team. These guys share the RYE philosophy, and the second we met we could feel the fire and the dedication to the game. They aim big, they won’t be satisfied with 2nd place finishes. They embody a team that has each others backs, will face hardship together and be able to pull off astonishing results. This is exactly the team I was looking for.
Esports is still at the beginning of its evolution, and has the potential to become the number 1 sport. I started playing Counterstrike 1.6 semi professionally at the age of 18 and I never lost the passion for Esports. Even though I transitioned into Poker, I always knew that one day I would want to return; whether as a player, or by supporting a team. I truly believe that Esports can learn a lot from the poker mindset and vice versa. Both industries have a lot in common and can learn from each other. The potential is huge, but we also know that we have a lot of work to do. My experience in Poker has taught me how much work is needed to reach the top. Not only hard work, but also a supportive team. The first step into the Esports world is made. Many more steps will come. Raiseyouredge is ready to crush!”
Statement by Oliver Hinrichs (Head of E-Sport RYEG):
“There are many options with which game you can start in a new organization in E-Sport. Everyone has his own views but certain factors decide in which direction it goes. After it was clear that we would start with PUBG, the search for the right team started. Selected as “most wanted” was team “CHARGE” in the qualifier for the PUBG Starladder; 2019 for us the primary goal is to start in PUBG. Confirmed by the consistent performance during the whole tournament, we quickly decided to sign these guys. The contact was made early and we quickly got into conversation. A bootcamp was quickly organized to prepare the team perfectly for the closed qualifier in Minsk. Not only playful but also the human aspect is an important part of the philosophy of Raise Your Edge Gaming, which shows the team spirit of these guys perfectly. We wish the team much success and above all a lot of fun under the flag of Raise Your Edge Gaming! ”
Statement Samuel -MAVERICK- Cline (Team Captain):
“Firstly i would like to thank Raise your Edge for picking us up to represent the company within the PUBG scene! I made this team out of hard tryouts and found the perfect 3 players to call my teammates and climb through the scene with. We have battled our way through the open qualifiers for one of the seven spots for a chance at EPL and we have stayed consistent and grown in skill since we formed. As captain i would like to thank all of you for the support we have been given which has boosted our mindsets to make you guys proud! You will see us in events and LANs to come! #letscrush!”
