Tundra Esports are an esports organization based out of the UK best known for their Dota 2 team; however, they also participate in Rocket League and Fortnite competitions.
Tundra Esports recently entered into an agreement with Vancouver-based esports performance firm Adamas Esports that will give Tundra’s rosters and players access to Adamas Esports’ performance team.
Tundra Esports was formed recently by Russian-British businessman Maxim Demin, who owned Bournemouth FC from England’s premier football division before creating Tundra.
Since its creation, this organization has amassed numerous titles and cemented itself into history books, such as winning Dota International 2022 and the FNCS EU Championship. Their breakthrough profile has led them into partnerships with Kappa and TikTok among others.
Tundra Esports’ success has not come easily; during their early days they experienced multiple failures including placing second at Gamers Galaxy Dubai Invitational and third at ESL One Stockholm Major respectively. But now with more than $8 Million dollars secured and their Aegis of Champions holding fast behind them Tundra Esports seems poised for long-term success.
Tundra Esports recently earned their place in tournament history by winning TI11. After defeating Team Secret with an emphatic 3-0 blitzkrieg, Tundra Esports become the 11th team ever in Dota 2 history to hold aloft the Aegis of Champions trophy.
Tundra Esports was launched in 2019 as an London-based esports organization with an international FIFA roster, but has since expanded into other major titles. Since its inception, Tundra has experienced rapid expansion. After signing three content creators (Archie ‘Archie’ King, Derman ‘Motor’ Ozdemir and Jordan “Jorhdys” Drummond), two Fortnite professional players (Zachariah ‘Pinq’ Siddall and Harry ‘Veno’ Pearson), as well as world renowned footballer Virgil van Dijk as Shareholder and Ambassador; Tundra has established itself as one of Europe’s premier esports organisations.
“NiP recently competed in Dota 2’s The International 11 and won in convincing fashion, defeating Team Secret 3-0 to take home the Aegis of Champions title. Furthermore, their social presence is increasing rapidly with memes and skits that have caught fans’ interest – such as their popular parody featuring Oliver “skiter” Lepko and Kurtis “Aui_2000″ Ling in jacked forms which has proven immensely popular within the Dota community.”
The International 2022
Tundra Esports, based out of London, UK is an European eSports organization. At The International 11 (TI 11), Tundra Esports were crowned Dota 2 Grand Champions – taking home an astonishing prize pool worth $8.5 Million!
Team Fiji won their group, losing only once during playoffs and easily beating Team Secret 3-0 to claim Aegis of Champions and take home first prize.
Their lineup consisted of Oliver “skiter” Lepko from Slovakia, Leon “Nine” Kirilin from Germany, Neta “33” Shapira from Israel and Martin “Saksa” Sazdov from North Macedonia; together they won every single match they were put up against and took first place in their Upper Bracket group before dominating playoff series by winning all games they were placed into.
Tundra began game three by allowing Nisha’s Leshrac through for the first time in tournament, yet still managed to remain dominant. Their heavy push lineup featuring 33’s Beastmaster, Nine’s Pangolier and Saksa’s Hoodwink quickly dismantled Marci, Chaos Knight and Pudge while skiter’s Medusa snowballed tier two mid.
Tundra Esports have taken steps towards expanding into Rocket League with a roster that boasts both Dota 2 and FIFA titles under their belts, and recently signed Jorhdys to further participate in this game. They hope to see even greater involvement going forward!
Tundra Esports are hoping to make an impressionful statement at this year’s TI. Their preparation will surely give them an edge during the main event.
They have brought in Dan Abrahams, a sports psychologist with over two decades of experience working with elite athletes. Dan will help improve both their mental game and teamwork – giving them an edge at TI11.
