We are proud to officially announce the Mock-It Esports (“Mock-It”) acquisition of Pale Horse Esports (“Pale Horse”) effective Friday 17th November 2017.
Pale Horse was founded in 2014 as a community organisation and participated in the Arma series and Insurgency. At the start of 2017, Pale Horse hosted various top quality Rocket League tournaments in the Oceanic region and subsequently entered the competitive esports scene, sporting teams in various games such as Call of Duty (North American), Rocket League (Oceania), Counter-Strike: Global-Offensive (Oceania) and H1Z1: King of the Kill (Oceania). With recent successes, the Pale Horse Rocket League team has proven itself as the top 2 team in the region, representing Oceania at the Rocket League Championship Series World Cup Season 4 in Washington D.C.
“The Mock-It Esports acquisition of Pale Horse is beneficial for all parties involved” Dr. Christopher Si, Co-Owner & Operations Manager of Pale Horse. “We see that Mock-It acquire quality assets and the (ex)Pale Horse Call of Duty, Counter-Strike Global-Offensive and H1Z1: King of the Kill teams would be exposed to greater resources under the stewardship of a larger and more experienced organisation, creating room for growth, sustainability and positive interests for potential investors”.
Pale Horse management, contractors, agents, suppliers, and personnel will be briefed individually with continued ongoing work subjected to case-by case basis discussions.
The Pale Horse Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global-Offensive and H1Z1: King of the Kill teams and players will enter contract renegotiations with potential transfers to the Mock-It brand.
The Pale Horse Rocket League team will remain a separate legal entity under the administration of a management team not associated to Mock-It Esports. The team continues to look towards future ESL, Throwdown & RLCS Tournaments following recent experience at the World Cup in Washington D.C. with Co-branding of Mock-it associated but not Co-mingled (to comply with current RLCS rules).
“We have previously worked closely with Marshall and the Mock-It team during the Oceania Division of MCS (Mock-It Championship Series) and with this acquisition it solidifies our collaborative relationship to help grow the brand exponentially”. Phil Gold, Founder & General Manager of Pale Horse Esports.
“The acquisition of Pale Horse exemplifies our determination to increase our foothold in the competitive esports market. With offices in North America, China and now Australia we are truly an international organisation with the ability to span our reach across multiple borders into a multitude of regions”. Marshall Long, CEO of Mock-It Esports.
