Overview[edit]

Nuit Blanche is one of the oldest eSports multi-gaming teams, having had a StarCraft II division since launch. The team's goal is to promote their vision of eSports, where result and performances are not the main objective, but the result of a good and fun atmosphere mixed with a serious organization for official tournaments.

History[edit]

Nuit Blanche was created in winter 1996 in Boulogne-sur-Mer, a city in the north of France. It was first a gathering of "irl" friends, organizing homemade LANs in their flats. They played a number of casual games, but actually became successful at Quake winning many offline tournaments, especially playing Capture The Flag.

Upon the release of StarCraft was release, some members started to play it. In 3 years, the team grew from being a totally unknown team to a 4-time French champion with many good players like SarenS, KymZen, FremAN, AureS and others.

After 2008, players went inactive on the RTS scene. Its players had children, played RPGs and chilled. But in summer 2010 with the release of StarCraft II, Nuit Blanche is trying to build, once again, its history.

Nuit Blanche is now a multigaming, sponsored team, but its goal is still, and will always be to promote fun and fair play and to grow as a team in a friendly and motivating atmosphere.
