SK Gaming can pride itself amongst the most established organisations in esports worldwide.
Having come a long way since its creation in 1997, the German team now counts Visa amongst its partners. SK Gaming is one of an increasing number of major orgs in the scene to embrace mobile via Super Evil Megacorp title Vainglory.
Why did they choose to do so? Esport Talk found just the man to ask this question. Martin Marquardt, the team manager of SK Gaming’s mobile gaming department, is the one responsible for ensuring the success of this new venture.
Esport Talk quizzed him on his journey to such a position within such an established team and how it saw him leading a double life for quite some time.
Initially, SK ran three Vainglory squads at once. Was this move a little overenthusiastic or did SK have a certain strategy in mind? Why do they have only one team today? And where do they see the future trajectory of mobile games?
Martin will answers all of these and more on this week’s Esport Talk episode.
