November last year, we were lucky to land Samuel “Ryuh” Morthorst as our Chief Mobile Officer, prior to the global launch of Wild Rift. Coming off a 3rd place of the EU Stage 4, in Call of Duty Mobile World Championships, Team Singularity looked to extend our focus into the world of Mobile Esports. Now a year later, we can look back at a great year for Singularity Mobile even though that we slimmed down our focus from four mobile titles last year to just two titles this year, Free Fire & Wild Rift.

Throughout this year we have had our Free Fire team qualifying and participating in the World Series 2021 in Singapore, and our Wild Rift team won the Mobile Mayhem, Rift Showdown, ESL Premiership, and got an overall 4th place in the Origin Series Group A Qualifier, and we also got to bring our community together in hosting tournaments with more than $6.000 USD in prize pool.

Over the past months we’ve parted ways with our Wild Rift team and our mobile Free Fire teams to focus on our mobile gaming ventures for 2022.

It’s a pleasure being in the mobile esports space, but it also takes a lot of time investment due to the maturity level of the mobile esports ecosystems in general. We believe a lot in the mobile gaming space and have high hopes to the development of the ecosystems already in place, and we would like to announce that we are currently looking at our plans for 2022 and beyond! We expect to finalize plans for 2022 within November and interested teams and managers should reach out on mail if they’d like to pitch their teams or themselves.

We asked Samuel “Ryuh” Morthorst to put some words on how the journey has been with Team Singularity and what his plan for the future looks like:

“It’s been an incredible year at Team Singularity, and I have learned more here than I could have ever imagined. I’m not the same person I was a year ago, and I have to thank Atle from the bottom of my heart, for mentoring me through this year. It’s been a pleasure to be here, but as I was recently married, and moved to another city, I have decided to take a step back for the time being, to focus more on my real life. But I would not be surprised to see myself come back to mobile esports one day!”

“It’s been a great pleasure to work with Samuel, and him being danish eased the general operational handling within the mobile esports space a lot. I have nothing but good things to say about Samuel, and I hope that he’ll announce his comeback to the mobile scene rather sooner than later as I believe he has a lot to offer within any mobile gaming operation due to his vast knowledge within the mobile esports space both from the POV of a professional player, coach and manager.

We have had our ups and downs throughout the period as in anything esports related, but overall then we have learned from mistakes and never made the same mistakes twice.

I hope that our paths will cross again, but I very much respect Samuel’s decision and wish him the best of luck no matter what he’ll decide to do going forward!”

Atle S. Stehouwer, Founder & CEO, Team Singularity
