VIRTUALETIX is founded by Raffy “N0vA” L., a Counter-Strike 1.6 veteran playing back in 2003 mainly at LAN events in Switzerland during the bronze era of eSports, when fnatic, SK Gaming and NiP were at the top of the ladders. In 2010 N0vA retired from the eSports practice after going through many years of in-game lead, coaching and team management experience with Virtual Skill, dreampLay and dakoon and ended his CS 1.6 career with a 4th place at the CTRL-ALT-DELETE 13 in the lead of this last one.
After an oldschool CS 1.6 LAN party revival and with the arise of Astralis in 2018 as one of the most professionally organized and successful Counter-Strike teams in the world, N0vA got inspired by being recalled of his young age passion and decided to help bring the scene also in Switzerland back to life.
VIRTUALETIX is officially founded March 27, 2019.
Virtualetix stands in also for ethical norms. Every organization aiming to contribute to the society for a prosperous environment has to determine the values to achieve its goals by ethically aligned actions. In our eSports organization we value the big three of sportsmanship: fairness, respect and graciousness.
We are fair; as in the root of the Swiss culture, we don’t abuse or take advantage, mistreat, or favor any party. We support a clean and honest work ethic and recompense with equivalent gratification.
We are respectful; every person is a human being; no matter what the language, religion is, nor does the ethnical, political or sexual background. We accept the people with and around us for who they are and what they do. Every person can make mistakes, nevertheless shall she or he ever have to suffer of disrespectful treatment. Every human being has the right of dignity.
We are gracious; in good or in bad times, we feel the joy of success, but we also accept and learn from losses. The same gratitude we show towards our other parties for allowing the experience of both worlds, brought also to our audience.
Fairness. Respect. Graciousness. These are values at the core of every relationship with virtualetix, within the organization, among players and staff, or outside of the entity with our partners or our audience.
You are our spotlight.
