International eSports community has started training S.A StarCraft 2 players

so much win

Over the past couple of months we’ve really tried to inspire support, and help the local eSports scene where we can. It’s amazing to see that it’s actually made an impact to such an extent where our local gamers and the international community are collaborating.

After publishing How to not suck at StarCraft 2, an article about local gaming community and clan Deviation Gaming and their StarCraft 2 training sessions, an international clan decided that they’d like to give us a hand and help our StarCraft 2 players improve too. They’ve since then approached Deviation Gaming and come to work with them to offer our players some training.

Introducing Sgeht eSports Community

sgeht

We’ve asked Sgeht to introduce them and give us some more information, check out what they’re all about.

Who is Sgeht?

Sgeht is an eSports team and community, founded in the late 2011. The expression “sgeht” can be seen as “What’s up?” or as “It’s possible”. This double definition ended up being just perfect as a name.

Resulting out of our German team founders, Sgeht focused on German players in the very beginning. With an increasing number of members but without any success, the strategy changed to an international orientation. This resulted into a great StarCraft II team, including several top level players under the team leadership of Johannes “Newton” Gorzel.

What game titles does Sgeht compete in?

With StarCraft II currently being our top representative, we got the worlds famous Dota2 tournament organizer Dennis “Holymaster” Schumacher to lead one of our two Dota2 teams. We put a lot of trust in the future development of both. We are currently setting up a League of Legends team but that is still in the early stages.

What have been some of your achievements?

Currently we hit the top ranks of the ESL SC2 Clanleague with a result of 21-7. We defeated famous teams like .SCA or iPlay within different competitions and reached quite a level of fame by now. On a player level, SgehtBBQKingPrime reached the Ro16 in the Blizzard WCS Denmark and sgehtIndy won several weekly cups.

How did you come to know about Deviation Gaming and how are you cooperating?

One of our clan leaders just loves to read Lazygamer. Even though he is German, the wording of the website is just entertaining. When the coaching of Deviation Gaming came up, he thought that he could actually help the SA StarCraft community. This resulted into the cooperation with Deviation Gaming, sending some of our players in regular time frames on your teamspeak channel and helping dedicated StarCraft II players to become better.

Does Sghet often get involved in community projects to help others gamers improve? If so, which projects are you involved with?

We never did coaching so far. We had a very popular showmatch together with MyStarCraft.de, the biggest German StarCraft II website. One of our founders hosted a show with the famous caster Mori and we played against the German team NoN-Gaming. After that match, many new players joined. Since Sgeht is also a community, it includes many players. From bronze to Grandmaster: Every league has at least a hand full of players which are part of Sgeht. So players which really want to improve enjoy a great atmosphere in our rows and can improve by time.

If gamers want to follow Sghet, where can they go?

The best way to follow us is via Facebook our check out our twitch channel which will broadcast future Clanwars or important matches. Also visit our website at www.sgeht.eu.
