ABOUT THE ACE PACK

THE JOURNEY FOR POLAR ACE ESPORTS BEGAN IN DECEMBER OF 2016, WHEN MAJORITY OWNER AND CEO DEREK DOBOSZ DECIDED TO DIVE INTO ESPORTS.

ORIGINALLY CALLED ANGEL SNIPE GAMING, THE MAIN FOCUS WAS TO BUILD A LEAGUE OF LEGENDS TEAM TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE CHALLENGER SERIES, AND GIVE THE ORGANIZATION AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET A FRANCHISE SPOT IN THE PRO LEAGUE.

IN THE SPRING OF 2017 THE ORGANIZATION REBRANDED AND CHANGED THEIR NAME TO TEMPUS SOL, BUT THE QUEST TO BUILD A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL LEAGUE OF LEGENDS TEAM STILL REMAINED.

THE TEAM WENT TO QUALIFIERS BUT WERE KNOCKED OUT IN THE QUARTERFINALS. THIS LOSS HIT THE ORGANIZATION HARD AND THE LEAGUE TEAM FELL APART. THE PLAYERS ALL WENT ON TO BE SIGNED BY PROFESSIONAL TEAMS, AND THE ORGANIZATION STAFF WENT BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD.

POLAR ACE ESPORTS (IN ITS CURRENT STATE) WAS STARTED IN 2018 WITH A NEW MISSION. DEREK REALIZED THAT FOCUSING ALL OF THE ORGANIZATIONS RESOURCES INTO ONE GAME WAS THE DOWNFALL OF TEMPUS SOL. HE DECIDED TO MAKE POLAR ACE INTO MORE THAN JUST A LEAGUE OF LEGENDS TEAM.POLAR ACE NOW HAS ROSTERS ON PC, VARIOUS CONSOLES, AND MOBILE PLATFORMS- IN GENRES RANGING FROM THEIR ORIGINAL PASSION, MOBA’S, TO FPS AND 
FIGHTING GAMES; ALL COMPETING AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL.
BUT MORE THAN JUST HAVING TEAMS COMPETE, POLAR ACE IS FOCUSED ON GROWING ESPORTS AS A WHOLE.

WITH THAT IN MIND, POLAR ACE CREATED THE #ACEPACK, A COMMUNITY OF GAMERS FOCUSED ON BEING POSITIVE, MAKING NEW FRIENDS, AND MOST OF ALL HAVING FUN. WITHIN WEEKS, THE COMMUNITY GREW TO OVER 1000 MEMBERS AND THEN DEREK REALIZED THAT POLAR ACE, WITH IT’S NEW ALL INCLUSIVE MISSION, WAS IN A POSITION TO CREATE A THRIVING COMMUNITY THAT ADDS VALUE TO THE ESPORTS SCENE.

POLAR ACE IS POSITIONING ITSELF TO BE A MAJOR PLAYER NOT JUST IN THE COMPETITIVE ARENA, BUT IN ESPORTS AS A WHOLE. WITH HIGH-LEVEL TEAMS, CONTENT ACROSS MULTIPLE PLATFORMS, AN AMBITIOUS GOAL OF RUNNING A 24/7 TWITCH STREAM, AND HELPING GREAT DESIGNERS AND EDITORS KEEP CONSISTENT WORK IN ESPORTS, POLAR ACE IS CLEARLY AHEAD OF THE PACK.
