History
Created:
1997

SK Gaming is a German eSports organization. Founded in 1997 under the name "Schroet Kommando" in Oberhausen, Germany, it has since then grown into one of the largest and most well-known eSports organizations in the world, and they are primarily known for their hugely successful Counter-Strike team.

History[edit]

Beginnings[edit]

Schroet Kommando was founded in 1997 as a German Quake clan by four brothers and three acquaintances in Oberhausen, Germany. The original line-up of Schroet Kommando consisted of Ralf "Griff" Reichert, Daniel "Godlike" Beames, Tim "Burke" Reichert, Benjamin "Kane" Reichert, Kristof "Speed" Salwiczek, Carsten "Storch" Kramer and Sven "Ramses" Tümmers.[1] According to Ralf Reichert, the original naming of the organization originated from one of the members repeatedly shouting, "Schröet!" This was a common occurrence from whenever a double-barreled shotgun would be handled, due to the translation meaning "shrapnel". Eventually, the team adopted this into their name, thus becoming "Schroet Kommando". Since then, the organization began using their abbreviation more often, until it eventually became SK Gaming.[2]
