November 26, 2023 marked the spectacular culmination of the Ubisoft Nadeo Trackmania 2023 World Championships, an event that sent shockwaves through the esports community.
The day dawned with an electrifying aura as the six top-tier teams took center stage, having battled their way through a demanding season to earn their spot in the World Championship Finals. The stakes were monumental, with the coveted Trackmania prize and the honor of being crowned champion in Montpellier, France.
Following the intense group stages that unfolded over the preceding two days, only the formidable teams of WYLDE, Solary, BIG, Into The Breach, Alliance, and Karmine Corp remained in contention.
The clash between WYLDE and Karmine Corp set the stage on fire, delivering a nail-biting spectacle. Each team poured their heart and soul into every track, with victories and defeats hanging on razor-thin margins. The standout performances of WYLDE’s dynamic duo, Alexander “Whizzy” Page and Mees “Stufts” Jenema—the youngest player in the Championships at a mere 18 years old were awe-inspiring. Despite their valiant efforts, Karmine Corp’s seasoned duo ultimately emerged victorious, securing a 2 – 4 scoreline and claiming the Championship trophy along with the glory of 2023.
For WYLDE, finishing among the Top 6 in the world in our debut season in Trackmania, led by the youngest team in the Championship, is an astounding achievement. It stands as a testament to the extraordinary skill, unwavering resolve, and boundless ambition of our players. WYLDE takes immense pride in our team and everyone who contributed to this remarkable journey.
As we look ahead to 2024 and beyond, the future for WYLDE appears bright, filled with potential and the promise of more lightning-fast victories on the esports stage.
