Our role is to be a supporting big brother in the industry.
The dream of Apeks started in 2017. Counter-Strike athlete Anders Kjær was fed up with the junk clubs and empty promises of a chaotic industry. The amateur team Kingpins was created and played an exciting and demanding first year with both ups and downs. In 2018, it escalated when the team emerged victorious in the Telenor League. Interest in Kingpins grew. On January 1. 2019, the team got picked up by ProUnite and brought to Apeks. The new group has a wide range of experience in e-sports and linear sports and is determined to make its mark. By supporting talented players with large game rooms and a professional support system, Apeks aims to create excellent entertainment value.

Apeks views itself as a supporting big brother for the players. We push the players to reach their potential with humor, heart, and enthusiasm. We are there to explain the game and what it entails to parents and other outsiders to get everyone on board.
