We just wanted to say thank you from the Orion Staff, Players, and Content Creators on our 1 year anniversary! It’s been a wild Ride since we started Orion but all of the long sleepless nights have been starting to pay off. We have been growing rapidly in the past few months, new teams and divisions, more content creators wanting to come on board, and more staff and coaches wanting to help develop talent. Without every single one of these amazing individuals Orion would be where it is today. We still have a long windy road ahead of us, but every step of the way will be a new adventure, meeting new people, and finding out new things about ourselves every day.
I’ve been doing this for one year now; I’ve learned a lot in my time doing this. Most importantly what I have learned is that if you think you are doing a good job you most likely are not. There are so many different levels to making an organization work, a lot of different connections and relationships, and building trust with people and players. Without doing any of this and organization wouldn’t be an organization without it’s people and fans!
We started with a group of friends maybe 10 people deep, and now we are sitting at close to 350 members in the discord just a year later. Another thing that has changed since the beginning has been our logo and brand colors as that we felt that they were a bit outdated and blah. Most importantly management has changed due to learning everything we have in the past year, who to trust, who not to trust, when to make the decision, when to step in and when not to step in. This company and career has pushed me and my staff to their wits end at times but we all are still here today under the Orion Brand and we are stronger than ever!
So from me (Nick “Nerfed” Fertig) to all of my staff, players, content creators, fans, friends, and family; thank you for being on this journey with me and my FAMILY now =).
Once again from the bottom of my heart, thank you everyone for supporting Orion on this adventure and we have a lot more to do and improve on this year so be on the lookout for Orion in some major leagues or circuits. We are coming for you and your spots in these leagues and tournaments so get ready to #HuntOrBeHunted
