SK Gaming is an international multi-gaming organization, located in Oberhausen, Germany. The team was founded in 1997, under the name 'Schroet Kommando.' SK Gaming currently has multiple teams represented in many different eSports titles, such as League of Legends, Hearthstone, and more. The organization entered the SMITE scene in 2012. In 2013 the team disbanded. At 2014 SK signed TeamQ, and lated sold the roster to Fnatic. In 2018 SK aquired a spot in 2018 Season SPL EU.

History

Pre Launch

SK Gaming was the first major organization to acquire a SMITE team, first acquiring a team in 2012, during the game's closed beta. Accomplishing excellent results in online play, the team was able to continue that success in their first major LAN when they took 2nd at the Gamescom 2013 Invitational, narrowly losing to COGnitive EU 2-1 in a best-of-3 grand finals. In November, the team hit a standstill when team captain, Psiyo, decided to step down from his leadership role.[1] The team decided to leave the organization, and started their own team, Azzur.

In February, the organization decided to pick up TeamQ, consisting of Realzx, CaptainTwig, Badgah, enQu, and prOxyQQ.[2] After qualifying as the 3rd seed from Europe, the team went on to place 4th in the Launch Tournament, as they fell to Team Dignitas in the losers bracket.

Season 1

After the Launch Tournament, enQu left the team and join Cloud 9, while prOxyQQ wanted to leave the jungle and so left the team to be a free agent. SK filled their open spots with two players who had very minimal competitive experience: Zyrhoes joined as the new jungler, while ManiaKK took over in the solo lane. After a rough regular season, the team was forced into the EU Wildcards, from which they qualified with a first-place finish to the Regional Championship. At the Regional Championship, SK Gaming finished second and qualified for the SMITE World Championship 2015.

The team went on to beat both We Love Bacon from Brazil, and COGnitive Red to advance to the SWC semifinals. before falling to Titan eSports and then COGnitive Red, both with 0-2 records.

Season 2

After taking 4th in the World Championship, the team chose to make a role swap and move CaptainTwig into the jungle and put Zyrhoes into the mid lane.

On March 7 the roster of SK was acquired by Fnatic.

Season 5

On January 10, 2018, the SPL announced that SK Gaming would acquire a spot in the Season 5 SPL, which would fallow a more franchise-style program than previous seasons. A month later, SK announced that they acquired the roster of Valance Squad, and in a surprise twist, brought back long time player Badgah to play support, as the team dropped their previous support two months ealrier. SK's start to season 5 was a rocky one as Badgah's rust was very evident and quickly their hand was forced to make a change. Rookie WhoDaBest stepped in to play support though this change was not enough to keep SK from finishing last in the spring split. Going into summer SK found some stability in the support position bringing on HalfDevil reuniting a season 1 duo lane with Funballer. Summer brought more of the same for SK Gaming and another last place finish followed. SK decided to move into Fall with the same roster, although the fall spit featured many close games for SK Gaming another last place finish put them as the bottom SPL seed going into SWC Qulifiers. An early exit at the qualifiers spelled the end of this rosters run with SK, and the team soon parted ways.

Season 6

Season 6 brings about a new beginning for SK Gaming after signing on the members of the season 5 Trifecta. A roster that had standout performances from rookies sam4soccer2 and Paul. They will look to build on the same success that brought them to the semi-finals of the SMITE World Championship.
