As of today, January 9th, H2kGaming are proud to announce the beginning of the rebirth of one of the most prolific European Esports Clubs, H2kGaming. Yes, thats right.. we are BACK - introducing the first line-up that will be joining H2k for 2011.


I will begin this article by saying that 2010 was definitely one of the weirdest years in H2k Gaming's history;

Firstly missing the Extreme Masters IV European Championship Finals, following by the release of three significant players with more manholes on the way we just unluckily fell down..

One month on, H2k Gaming announced adding spawn as coach of the Counter-Strike team. A few weeks later, our players managed to qualify for ESWC where they were forced to use pop. Right before ESWC, H2k surprised Fnatic two times at Dreamhack Summer 2010, beeing stopped in the playoffs. Unfortunately, not long after.. H2kGaming had to announce the release of the team.

Finally, in the end of 2010, our organisation met some financial problems and had to unfortunately release all the H2k Teams except Trackmania Nations. Despite all this being said, 2010 has been stricken off the record for us, and labeled as a lesson.. at the end of 2010 we were hit with an ultimatum to either fix up and climb back up, or quit while we were ahead. So, we have ultimately decided to fix up: 2011 is OUR year.

As we promised, 2011 is going to be a big year for us, not just as an organisation - but as a team. We start off by introducing League of Legends, a well known area of eSports that will ultimately help us to step up our game. 

League of Legends is a game inspired by the Defense of the Ancients map for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows. It was first announced on October 7, 2008 and released on October 27, 2009. The game was in a closed beta from April 10, 2009 to October 22, 2009, where it then transitioned to open beta until release. Today, the community members number is increasing day by day, with the support of ESL which organises different ladders and events covered and livestreamed by own3d.tv, another great supporter of League of Legends community.

Our latest addition, the League of Legends team called FIR, was created by gathering the most important players from two significant top teams called Fureur (ranked 3rd in Europe in the latest update) and IngloriousRetards (ranked 5th in the same rank update). They recommend themselves as a "highly motivated team that is dedicated to the game and its community".




From their achievements we can mention:

EMS French Qualification (2nd) 
EMS Groupstage B (1st) 
EMS Playoffs (3rd) 
ESL Go4LoL 1st,2nd or 3rd placed. 

The new H2k team will begin its conquest in League of Legends Season 1, CHZ-League and at the monthly ESL Go4LoLevents.

Maik MoMa Wallus , one of the H2k.LoL captains said:

Im feeling great to join the H2k organisation! Our team is fully motivated to do the best job possible in every single cup in League of Legends. Its a great chance to prove our skills with the support of this great organisation. We will try to build up a strong name for H2k-Gaming in the LoL scene.

H2k.LoL will participate today at the 19th edition of ESL Go4LoL, a weekly tournament which can be visited HERE.

Our guys will play at 15.00 or 15.30 CET against the winner between ReQ and MR, while own3d.tv will take care of the streaming. You will be able to follow H2k.LoL live on http://www.own3d.tv/live/1796.
