Alarming Wolves Obtains AVANT Video Gaming, Sells LCO Slot
Australian esports organization Dire Wolves revealed that it has actually obtained its competitor AVANT Video gaming and will unite the two organization’s groups under the Dire Wolves brand. Dire Wolves did not disclose the financial information of the acquisition.
Alarming Wolves, which was established in 2014 around the creation of a League of Legends group, only became a multi-game organization in 2020 through the acquisition of N8 Esports and Sydney Drop Bears, moving into Overwatch, FIFA, and more. By the acquisition of AVANT Gaming, Dire Wolves will now move into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The organization protected its place in the recently revealed League of Legends Circuit Oceania (LCO), which was formed previously this month by ESL and Guinevere Capital following Riot Games retreat from the area at the end of 2020 as it closed its workplace in Australia and dissolved the Oceanic Pro League (OPL).
AVANT Video gaming likewise secured a slot in the LCO, which Alarming Wolves is now wanting to sell to another company.
