Nevermore eSports has recently made the decision to merge Nevermore, RaiN, and Nano into Instant-Shock. With this, all assets of Nevermore will be transferred over to I-Shock within a week of the release of this article. A lot of the members in Nevermore, Nano, and RaiN we’re all a part of I-Shock at some point in their gaming history, now its time for its sons and daughters to go home. This article features an interview with both the owners of Nevermore and Instant Shock, as the two organizations plan to merge. Instant Shock’s Medias will be included at the bottom of this article, please take the time to join the discord or follow I-Shock on twitter.
What is happening with Nevermore eSports?
Nevermore as an organization and community will be merging into Instant Shock. Nevermore has had a very good streak with our CS:GO team as well as our partnered organizations, and we want to take things to the next level. RaiN and Nano will both be joining Nevermore in the merge to I-Shock since they are owned by Nevermore. Our mission is to make our organization as big as possible, and merging all of the organizations into one will do exactly that. After a long and strenuous process, we have decided that the Nevermore brand merging into I-Shock and its assets as the best course of action. We are very future-oriented now with our organizations being consolidated into one big organization.
What is I-Shock?
I-Shock is a gaming organization that has the mindset and goal of making it to the big stages, where teams can be at the top of their game and have our name be one of the biggest out there. Many current members of Nevermore got their first experience in the gaming community through I-Shock, and even the founder of Nevermore, Flay, started out in I-Shock. After seeing how motivated and fun the I-Shock community was, Flay wanted to create that experience on his own. Now he’s ready to come home and merge the two groups he cares so much about. We at I-Shock are more than excited for the unity of our two groups.
What will the merge consist of, and what will happen to Nevermore moving forward?
Simply said, all of Nevermore will be merging into I-Shock, and all of our assets are going to I-Shock. RaiN eSports and Nano eSports will also be merging into I-Shock. Our management will stay the same (with some minor changes in positioning), but most everyone in our staff team will be staying and joining the I-Shock staff team in order to help with the transition. Therefore all the familiar faces you have seen during your time within our organizations will still be around, just under the I-Shock name.
Why is Nevermore merging into I-Shock?
Both Nevermore and I-Shock have seen a decline in different areas of our organizations. I-Shock has seen a decrease in motivation within their staff team, which Nevermore can provide a jumpstart to and lead in a great direction. On the Nevermore side of the spectrum, there has been a decrease in revenue and sponsorship return, meanwhile, I-Shock has great business’ sponsoring their team that is very cooperative and attentive. We are very future-oriented and cannot wait to get working together as a team to improve on these aspects of our organization!
After these two organizations merge, what will the future hold?
We have a ton of ideas already streaming through our heads. This includes: new I-Shock hosted CS:GO tournaments with prize pools, brand new graphics coming through the server for everyone to enjoy, and more. A lot of the competitive teams from Nevermore, RaiN, and Nano are all transferring over as well! You are looking at just the tip of the iceberg of what our potential is. We are going to be working twice as hard to make sure I-Shock as a collective reaches the highest degree we can!

Official iShock In-House League

Following the release of our iShock official servers we are announcing a new project; an official iShock in-house league! The official in-house league will be introduced on May 25th, 2018.
Our in-house league will be a competition for teams under the iShock organization to compete, and the winner will receive an ESEA Open season paid for by iShock!
The tournament format will have groups of four teams who play each other in a round robin format, and the top two teams from each group will move onto the tournament bracket.
This league will not only help grow our organization, but it will also help players gain exposure by creating a network for players to adapt, grow together, form friendships, and even make a name for themselves.
When describing his goals for the in-house league, _deXter, the In-house league moderator, says that the league is “something special for our players.”
With the introduction of our official iShock in-house league, we intend to become more united with the amazing people who make up our community and new people who will become a part of it.
In a prior interview, FleXXX told me that collectivism and unity are both integral parts in our organization, and this new league reflects that.
iShock Severs Introduced
We are very pleased to release two official iShock CS:GO Servers.
ISHOCK SEVERS INTRODUCED
We are very pleased to release two official iShock CS:GO Servers. The servers released include a “Retakes” server and an “Arena 1v1” server, which are both based within the United States. In the Retakes server players practice bombsite-retake scenarios. This practice is intended to improve a team or player’s ability to effectively retake a lost bombsite.
In addition to the Retakes server there is also an Arena server, where players can battle one versus one in order to improve aim and reaction time. While there is currently only one map in the server, 5 more are nearly ready to be introduced. Cage, who is one of our level designers, said that he has a specific mindset that will set our iShock servers ahead of the competition.
“My goal is to take high visual quality maps for 1v1 arenas with a unique thematic style and good game play,” and this is exactly what he did with the first map, “am_neon.”
According to Parade, who is another of our level designers, they are primarily focused on 1v1 maps as of now, but have hopes of creating new maps for alternative game mods in the future. When asked about the servers, our CEO FleXXX (also known as Souren) stated that the 1v1 servers have gloves, knives, and they are fully customized maps, which has always been his “dream.” The interview with Souren was of course not complete until he told me about how proud he was in the iShock organization, the management, and the mappers.
With the release of these servers, we are pleased to introduce monthly VIP packages that include a $5 package that provides members with several benefits among all instant-shock arena and retakes servers, and a cheaper $3 package, giving members benefits to either the arena servers or the retakes servers.
We would like to thank the following sponsors for making the production of these servers and this article come to fruition: Drakken Technologies and Duality Media.
