Today at Denial Esports we’re very excited to announce that Hank Baskett, will be coming on board with the WolfPack as a Co-Owner. This is the first time in the history of Denial Esports there has been another Co-Owner. When Robby Ringnalda (CEO) and Ray Arsenault (COO) started talking with Hank, it was very clear that he truly enjoys gaming and esports as whole. Throughout the discussions it was clear that Hank would fit right in with how Denial operates and performs.
And of course you’ll be able to catch him playing games with our players very soon on his Twitch channel! https://www.twitch.tv/hankbaskett.
Everyone at Denial Esports from players to staff would like to welcome Hank into the WolfPack and we’re very excited to start working alongside him!
Make sure to give Hank Baskett a follow as well if you don’t already!

Denial Esports are sad to announce that we are parting ways with James “Duck” Ma, our first ever Smash Bros. Melee Player.


It has been a great run with Duck but times change and moving on is sometimes best for both parties involved. With that in mind, Denial and Duck have mutually agreed to part ways and we thank Duck for his service from the bottom of our hearts. We wish him the best and know that where ever Duck lands, it will not only be great, but also well deserved.


It was a bold move to enter a community Denial has never been a part of and we would like thank everyone for such a warm welcome. Rest assured knowing that we are still a part of the Smash community and will continue to host our Smash 4 player, Tyler “Marss” Martins.


Who knows, maybe we'll come back to Melee one day. With Esports being an ever-changing environment, teams come and go all the time, so stay tuned!

When Denial was founded, our mission was to expand into as many esports games as possible. With that in mind, Denial is proud to present our newest esports venture: our very own Vainglory team.

Our COO Ray Arsenault had the following to say about our new players:

"We're very excited to not only enter Vainglory but expand our presence within Europe. The guys on Beyond Horizon fit right into what look for within teams. We cannot wait to support and watch them play this season and especially in their first match this Saturday!"

The team’s captain, Kadir “ArtemisGrace” Sahintürk also had a few words to say:

“We are very excited about joining Denial Esports and we are looking forward to achieve great things in the Future! The whole Team is motivated and ready to win the Vainglory8! We are proud to be able to say that we are part of the #WolfPack now.”

Our new Wolves’ first match will be in this weekend’s Vainglory8 Spring Season whose schedule can be found here.

The full roster of our team is as follows:

Kadir “ArtemisGrace” Sahintürk (Laner/Carry)

Nikita “Bashn” Barabash (Support)

Arthur “ImtheDoom” Parsin (Jungle)

Tuan "Tesfaye" Anh Dinh (Sub)

Yakub “Qiyama” Goezgoeren (Sub)

We here at Denial Esports are sad to announce the departure of Christian "Spitfire" Schiölde from our CS:GO roster. After considering several other options, we decided that it would be best for both parties if Denial and Spitfire went their separate ways.

We here at Denial Esports are proud to announce our venture into H1Z1, the popular PvP survival zombie game. We aim to take our players to the highest competitive level of the game and help develop their eSports careers for years to come. The captain, Justin 'Yogi" Deese, had the following to say about joining the WolfPack:

“Words can’t express how it feels to be joining Denial Esports. Joining a professional gaming organization as big as Denial is something that most people who play video games dream of; and my dream is now a reality. Denial giving me and my team the opportunity to represent them is something we have all strived for since we started playing H1Z1. I'm excited to be apart of the Denial family and to see what else i can learn from this experience!”

Our COO, Ray Arsenault, also had a few words to say:

"When we were approached by this roster, taking them in became something that we felt we needed to do. In 2017, we here at Denial will be focusing more than ever on content creation and personalities while at the same time keeping our focus on the ultimate goal of winning championships. Adding these guys to our roster of teams will not only bring said ultimate goal, but also some brand new personalities moving forward. I'm extremely excited to enter a new scene and community, and look forward to seeing it grow!"

Below you will find the full roster along with the players’ Twitch channels and Twitter accounts. We are currently looking for a fifth player so if you think you have what it takes to play with the Wolves, send your application to Yogi at “TheeYogi” on Twitter. We look forward to working with them and wish them good luck in all their future competitions!
