CELEBRATING ONE YEAR OF ARCTIC RAPTORS

A WHOLE YEAR OF GROWTH & SUCCESS

written by HEATON
We are thrilled to be celebrating our one-year anniversary as a thriving UK esports organisation.

It has been an amazing journey so far filled with memorable moments, challenges, and many milestones that have shaped us into the organisation we are today.

Taking the time to reflect on the past year is imperative, and we are forever grateful for the support and love we have received from our fans and the community we have found ourselves an integral part of. Your encouragement, criticism, and passion for the community is the driving force behind any esports organisations success, and that is what we use as fuel to move on in our journey to the top.

Looking back on our first year, we are very proud of what we have accomplished. Not only as an organisation, but also as the individual teams that we have in CS:GO and TrackMania.

In Counter-Strike, we have transformed from an ESEA Intermediate roster to an ESEA Advanced competitor, reaching semi-finals in various tournaments and achieving huge milestones with a dedicated roster constantly looking to improve.

Some memorable achievements include:

                3rd – 4th                 CeX Invitational Spring 2023

                3rd                           EPIC.LAN 38

                5th-6th                    ESL UK Premiership Autumn 2022

In TrackMania, we have seized many opportunities against fierce competitors such as BIG Clan. The drivers have shown immense talent and dedication as they compete for a place in TrackMania World Tour.

                Some memorable achievements include

                                2nd                          InsaLAN 17

                                5th-8th                    TrackMania World Tour Promotion & Relegation

In celebrating our one-year anniversary, we must also look to the future. We have very big plans for the rest of this year and are excited to continue building on our successes. We have various visions to improve our entertainment offerings, as well as expansion into different esports titles, all leading to one ultimate goal: becoming the leading UK esports & entertainment brand.

One of the most important aspects of our success thus far has been teamwork. Without the support of our players, coaches, staff, and fans, we would not have been able to achieve the great things we have. Each member of our team has brought their own unique talent and perspectives, and together we have created something truly special.

We would like to take a moment to thank each and every member of the team for their hard work and dedication. Your commitment to the organisation has not gone unnoticed, and we are grateful for everything you have done to help us achieve our goals.

Finally, we want to invite our fans to join us in celebrating our one-year anniversary. Check out our one year anniversary video on YouTube below.

The date is also marked by the start of ESL UK Premiership Spring 2023, so make sure to tune in to our stream, as well as the ESL stream throughout the tournament, as we look to showcase the true level of our CS:GO roster.

Once again, thank you to our fans and supporters for an incredible first year. We look forward to many more years of exciting esports action and hope to continue making you proud.
