In CEO Benjamin Rolle’s statement explaining why they are leaving the space, communication was the main factor. “Our primary issue was the incredibly poor communication we received from the esports team,” Rolle stated. He also mentions how the org couldn’t make content around the team because they did not have backstage access.
Acend were the number one team from the EU region. They finished top 12 at the 2022 Halo World Championship, after some drama about a supposed tech issue enfolded during Pool Play.
