Team ALTERNATE is a German eSports organization founded in 2003. The organization would later rebrand to ALTERNATE aTTaX.

Overview[edit]

Right after being support or headsponsor of several other e-sport teams in May 2003 Alternate decided to establish an own team and create a novelty in e-sport through being the first works team in e-sport history. In collaboration with Peter "Chucky" Schlosser we were able to present our first lineup on the 2003 Gamesconvention with following members:

Michael "Yoshi" Timm, team management
Alexander "Thanatos" Bräampuumlckel, event manager
Peter "Chucky" Schlosser, team Captain
Constantin "2talk" Boeckhaus, team organization
Jens "FINAL" Faller, player
Karl "ricster" Szobolovszky, player
Sebastian "Sebbo" Bug, Spieler
Torsten "TroNiCo" Hamacher, player
Jan "Moon" Stolle, player
Jan "Nookie" Höfling, player


During the first months of 2004 there were several changes within the lineup among others our team manager Johannes "sick" Sick joined which were responsible for the incoming successes in summer 2004. The team managed to prevail in the ESL Pro Series qualification and astonishingly also accomplished to win the spot of the german representative for WCG 2004 in San Francisco, which was held in October 2004. Although no one of our players had experienced an international tournament before we were able to overcome every competitor till the quarter final against corea.[1]


At the end of the year the team started expanding to a true multigaming clan due to the affiliation of several of the most successful FIFA players in Germany. After a number of changes in the Counterstrike-lineup in winter 2004 the young team managed to achieve their first international hit by finishing third at the Samsung Euro Championship in Hannover 2005. During the sommer month of 2005 both of our teams were able to claim various successes in the ESL Pro Series and were even able to win the vice title in FIFA 05 as a team. Later in 2005 the FIFA team was followed by a Counterstrike Source team which was directed by Peter "Chucky" Schlosser and a Counterstrike female team, the first of its kind in a professional clan with high reputation. The actual breakthrough followed in 2006. At first we were able to engage the Need for Speed World and Euro Champion Niklas "Sliver" Timmermann who right away managed to defend his Euro Championship title in March 2006. Meanwhile our FIFA player Julian "Jul" Schmolz dominated every 1on1 tournament he attended and logically came out as the winner of the top-class Gamestar League. Winning back their old performance level our Counterstrike team finished first at the ESWC qualifier, meaning they are seeded as the german representative in Paris. Another highlight of the year were the ESL Pro Series finals held in Cologne where for the first time ever a Counterstrike team of Team Alternate accomplished to win the finals. Additionally our in-game-leader Navid "kapio" Javadi got elected for the title Most Valuable Player of the Season. At the peak of their success they furthermore managed to bring home the third place on the ESWC beating nearly every heavyweight of the Counterstrike scene and even reaching the second place on the Intel Summer Championship. To top it all off they surprisingly fought their way through the whole tournament tree of the World Series of Video Games with only a skeleton staff having 2 stand-ins and came out as the first german world champion in Counterstrike ever![2]


This title was followed by some big changes within nearly all of our teams. Half of the Counterstrike male team left the clan to play for opposing teams, the whole Counterstrike female team left into inactivity and the FIFA project got scrubbed due to missing motivation and success. Solely the Need for Speed team constantly turned in good results in every tournament they participated providing three out of three representatives at the World Cyber Games 2006 in Monza At the end of the year a new Counterstrike female lineup was presented and right away tied in with the successes of the old lineup.
The year 2007 started with the Samsung Euro Championship held in Hannover where our Need for Speed player crovex participated as german representative. Due to missing experience in offline tournaments he unfortunately only reached the fourth place, which i still a great result for a 16 year old player at the very beginning of his career. In the meantime the new formed Counterstrike lineup and our Counterstrike Source team dominated the ESL Pro Series, winning the Summer Finals in both categories. In the end of 2007 the Need for Speed team again set the pace for WCG Nationals and sent over three representatives for Germany to Seattle.[3]
