In the pulsating realm of esports, where change is constant and innovation is key, adaptation is not merely an option; it's a must.

In the pulsating realm of esports, where change is constant and innovation is key, adaptation is not merely an option; it's a necessity for survival.

Nativz Esports Club, a prominent figure in the Northern European esports scene, has recently embarked on a strategic reset, realigning its approach to better navigate the dynamic industry landscape.

Deciphering the Reset

The decision to reset Nativz Esports Club's strategy stems from a deep-rooted understanding of the challenges and opportunities inherent in the esports domain. One of the important drivers for change at this time is the continuing evolution of the Northern European League of Legends Championship (NLC) ecosystem.

Kurt Pittman, CEO of Nativz Gaming, sheds light on the impetus behind this shift. "The esports landscape is ever-evolving, presenting us with both enticing opportunities and formidable challenges. We’ve lived the NLC’s evolution first hand over the past two years. Our decision to reset is a proactive response to this reality."

Strategic Plan for Sustainability and Growth

Central to Nativz's reset is a meticulously crafted strategic plan that prioritises sustainability and growth. This multifaceted approach is aimed at fortifying the club's position in Irish esports and leveraging this base to grow within the fiercely competitive European esports ecosystem.

A steadfast commitment to fostering a vibrant Irish esports community underscores Nativz Esports Club's ethos, reinforcing its place in the development pathway for Irish talent. The opportunity to leverage the successful rebuild of the Ireland Esports Collegiate Series will play an important role in delivering on this commitment.

Transition in First Team Leadership

In line with our strategic reset, Nativz Esports Club announces the departure of Head Coach John 'RNGLoL' Crichton. After a fairly intense run, John has decided to take some time out from coaching. Having joined as a veteran coach with a number of trophies to his name, he picked up the reigns for Nativz 2023 NLC Summer campaign. RNGLoL was responsible for the esports club’s most successful campaign yet with Nativz finishing 9th in the 2023 EMEA Summer Masters.

Additionally, Assistant Coach Nikolaj 'Scotty' Simonsen, who is in the final stages of completing his MBA, has chosen to prioritise his academic pursuits for the time being. Scotty joined Nativz for the 2022 Summer Split as an analyst and has played a key role in our success during his time, our promotion to the NLC 1st Division and successful run in the 2023 EMEA Summer Masters being two highlights during that time.

While both John and Nikolaj remain integral members of the Nativz family, we wish them the utmost success in their future endeavours.

Looking Ahead

As we bid farewell to our Spring Split roster and coaching staff, the Nativz rebuild for the upcoming Summer Split is well underway as we close off the recruitment of our new coach and complete our roster build.
