It’s been a long time coming, but I’m pleased to announce that I will be making my return to the fold in all upcoming Perilous projects and future endeavors.
As many of you know, but some of you may not, a sudden change of my personal circumstances last year caused a dramatic change to my state of mind and day-to-day responsibilities (among other things) which caused an upheaval that I never could have imagined. I released a statement a few months after the affects began to surface owning my mistakes and the right thing all around was to take a step back from Perilous at that time.
This didn’t mean however that Perilous stalled, because under the careful guidance of general manager Brian ‘dotshotgun’ Houston, we have continued to break our own records and boundaries. Something which we have continually discussed in the background, and I’m excited to be back at the forefront working with Brian alongside me to keep pushing forward with some fantastic news on the horizon.
I want to make it clear that we are still working with past players and teams that were with us during the period of last year to resolve any ongoing issues, and again thank them for all of their patience.
Michael ‘Mick’ Hartley – Founding Manager
Content is king. That is our view for the next couple of months. We will still be working tirelessly to support our players and teams however a large amount of resources will be put into content creation as well. This content will include articles, podcasts, videos and the return of our weekly streaming schedule. To make sure everything is professional and frequent, we have created the Perilous Content Team.
Firstly we have our new Graphic Designer – Jonny ‘JAE’ Edmondson. In the past he has captained one of our Dota 2 teams. Now though, he is back working with Perilous to make our graphics and branding stand-out from the crowd. We will be releasing a video next week which features his work. You can see some of his other work here.
Originally I joined Perilous as RAZE’s captain from the roster of Kunkka Rum, After I59 the team had some discussions and real life got in the way. People were getting jobs and there wasn’t much time for Dota. The team disbanded and people moved on. I was finishing my final year of uni at this time and Perilous’ General Manager Brian offered me the role of Graphic Designer for Perilous. Recently I have worked on designs for a current video for all of Perilous. Having the official role as Graphic Designer means there should be more designs to come in the future!
Next up we have Perilous veteran Ceej as our first official streamer. He’s been associated with us for many years after starting off on PerilousIMPACT. He’ll be streaming Gwent every Monday on the Perilous twitch as well as taking part in podcasts, community streams and a number of new shows we have planned. You can check out his personal stream here.
Ceej – Since joining Perilous as the OG Dota squad back in 2014, I never thought to this day that I would still be affiliated with them. No matter what game I was focused on, whether it be Dota 2, Heroes of the Storm or more recently Gwent, Perilous have always backed and supported me in everything that I have done. I am very happy that Brian has offered me a place on the content team and hope to bring some Gwent insight to newer players as the game approaches full release.
And finally we have our new Stream Manager Ewan ‘Spartawolf’ Parker. After trying out for the original Raze roster, and failing miserably, he’s been a constant streamer, caster and collaborator at Perilous. Now Spartawolf will be looking after all our streaming content as well as working closely with us to introduce new streams.
Spartawolf – I have been hooked on gaming since I was a wee lad watching my dad play RPGs I could barely understand, working my way through the complexity and skill of strategy to the reflex and agility of shooters. Today that fire of passion still burns within me, whether that be playing SMITE or Paladins to CS:GO and the many scary horror games that I have played for Perilous over the last two years. I am proud to call myself a gamer, and I am proud to work as a Content Creator and as the Stream Manager with Perilous Gaming, and the men and women that share that same fire with me. No matter the challenge on or off the screen we will do our best to overcome, because we’re gamers – It’s what we do best!
With the announcement of the content team, we are also launching our staff page on the website and teasing a new show we plan to kick off our streaming schedule with this Sunday, 16th July. We will prove, with this show, that anyone can be gud. Look out for further videos and streams as well as articles, podcasts and a whole load of content in the months to come!
