Orbit eSport is a professional esports organization based in Sweden.

History

Humble Beginnings

The original Orbit organization was founded by people that are no longer associated. The organization was completely different back then and their goals were also much different than the goals we have set today. At the time, Orbit was a community organization. The website featured forums for gamers to interact and find others to play with, but there was not a lot of overall structure. Amateur players were recruited to join up, but many went their own way just as easily as they came. Orbit did not sponsor any competitive teams under the name, as most members were simply playing casually. Due to the lack of guidance and structure, the old Orbit eventually faded away. All of this changed in 2012 when Patrik "Gordo" Andersson branched off and created his own brand with Wesley der Hert. The two decided on the name “Team Orbit”, and they had a vision to push the org to the next level and make it something people around the world could recognize as a top contender in eSports.

A New Era

From an idea, a plan of action emerged. Gordo has stated that the overall goal for Team Orbit is to be the absolute best eSports organization in the world. He also wants the players, staff, and fans to feel a sense of community, “I want everyone to know that we do as much as possible for the players, and I want everyone that works for Team Orbit to feel like family. Team Orbit is something we should all feel proud of.” As a new owner with a competitive mindset, Team Orbit was transformed into the organization it is today. Gordo had always been a part of the Call of Duty community, so naturally the first players recruited to compete under the namesake of Team Orbit were top Call of Duty pros. Along with Call of Duty, Team Orbit recruited a top-notch CS:GO team. Team Orbit has also dabbled in the FIFA and League of Legends world as well, but do not currently support any teams.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

In 2014, Team Orbit en qualified to attend the Call of Duty Championship, the largest tournament of the season. The championship is held every spring on the newest Call of Duty title and features a 1 million dollar prize pool. 32 of the top teams from around the world qualify to attend. At this event, Team Orbit was placed into a group of 4 containing the top team in the world at the time, Complexity. Unfortunately, Orbit was not able to move past the group stage in 2014. 2015 has been a completely different story. At the start of the year, teams around the world began preparing for the Call of Duty Championship. Team Orbit had multiple teams attempting to qualify from Sweden, the United States, and the en. After being invited to the European Regional Qualifiers, Team Orbit Sweden were defeated by Team Finland and did not manage to attend CoD Champs. Over in North America however, a Team Orbit squad consisting of Sinful, TwiZz, Accuracy, and Lawless placed high enough to earn themselves a ticket to Los Angeles and a chance at the money. The team was placed into a pool containing, yet again, the best team in the world at the time (OpTic Gaming), along with two European teams, who Orbit defeated. After a close match with OpTic Gaming, Team Orbit came up short but still made it out of the group stage and into the playoff bracket. After several matches, Orbit finished just shy of making it into the money by losing to Team Kaliber 3-2 in map count. Overall, they placed 9th-12th.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Going into Black Ops III, Orbit eSport had picked up an entirely new roster to fulfill their desire of becoming an international organization. This new roster, which resided in the Australia/New Zealand region, consisted of Azzi, Envious, Swiftaz0r, and Nimble. The team started off the new game right as they finished in 3rd Place for both the CWL ANZ Stage 1 Regular Season and the CWL ANZ Stage 1 Playoffs. This is when both Azzi and Envious were released in trade for Bacabec and Zeuss. The updated roster then went on to finish Stage 2 of the CoD World League in 1st Place. However, the team was unable to overcome Mindfreak at the Stage 2 Finals, securing them a 2nd Place finish. The team then earned themselves a spot at the 2016 Call of Duty World Championship, giving them a group that consisted of Team EnVyUs, Cloud9, and Team Vitality. Although they were able to beat the European roster of Team Vitality, Orbit eSport’s efforts were not enough to topple either of the North American powerhouses, placing 17th-32nd overall at the biggest event of the year. Following this poor placement, the team was released on September 19th, 2016, which gave Orbit eSport the opportunity to fully venture once more into European Call of Duty.
