Macedonian Esports Federation – IESF’s Member Nation

To succeed in our mission to create a united World Esport we need really big support and the biggest support we get is from our 109 Member nations, national federations from all around the world!

It’s really important to show you who are our Member Nations!

Today we are presenting the Macedonian Esports Federation!

Tell us more about Macedonian Esport Federation, when and how did you found the federation?

The federation was created back in 2009, after 4 years of work in creating the proper structure. We have been competing on national level since 2005 in Singapore, the first WCG our team played. Since then, we have developed a lot, held many competitions and participated in more than 15 international competitions.

That love of the game and pride in one’s country is at the heart of a lot of really exciting competitions in any sport. Which games are most played in your country?

Counter Strike is the most popular game here. We have some extraordinary DOTA2 and LOL players, but CS will always be number 1.

In which games do you have a representation and tell us more about their achievements?

This year we have CS:GO, DOTA2, Tekken and PES2021 representatives. They are currently the best in the region, but are lacking true international experience and we are positive that the Regional games and the World Championship will be a solid motivator. 

You won the European Nations Cup in CS:GO, congratulations! How was the feeling of winning the European championship? 

Well, it was unbelievable. We have a solid team, we were hoping to win, but you never know till the end. We are very proud of the team and continue the support for the next big events.

Do you think the team is capable of improving and doing even better results after this achievement?

Yes, 100%. They are solid and very fluid in their game. We see them training every day and they were signed by a semi-pro team, so that should make them better.

How would you describe the state of Esports in your country?

It’s not where it should be. We have a lot more to do, pending our government’s recognition. Once we become an official sport, the direction is clear and we know what to do.

In what ways does the federation help Esports in your country?

We organise the National League, which is the most prestigious competition and we also give the players the opportunity to play against top teams from the world. Soon we will start with proper practice and education, so we can truly level up. 

What are your future plans for the federation?

Obviously, recognition is the number 1 goal. Our mission is to develop the existing infrastructure and make it possible for kids to practice Esports responsibly. We must deliver the message that Esports can’t be enough, there must be physical activity as well as proper education in the process.

Goce Spasovski – IESF’s Communications Coordinator and Graphic Designer

Connecting with our community is the right way! It’s really important to give you a peek “behind the curtain” and show you who are the people who work at our organization!

Today you’ll learn more about our Communications Coordinator and Graphic Designer Goce Spasovski!

Hi Goce! In order for our audience to get to know you better, tell us a few words about yourself.

I have always been honest, for some immodest, but that’s me. Talented, always motivated and creative graphic designer with great communications skills, with a refined eye for photography and beautiful things. How refined is my eye, you will find out if you only look at my wife and she really is my gentler half because we both together are forming a nominal-weight person.

What do you love most about what you do?

That my work is constantly creative, surrounded by plenty of ideas, and always unique in its own way.

What was the worst job you ever had?

Since I always choose the job I love, I have to say that I have never worked in my life. That is why I am not competent to answer this question. And I’m pretty sure there’s no worst job. If you like the job, then take it, otherwise, just leave it. Surely there is someone who likes what you do not like.

What behaviour or personality trait do you most attribute your success to, and why?

Primarily because of the competitive spirit that prevails within me, then because of the excessive curiosity and self-motivation, and of course because some people have installed and are still installing great values for me to follow through.

What’s your dream job?

I have the dream job at the moment and I am extremely happy and thankful for that. Esports can be a hobby, a profession, or just a way of entertaining your own life. For me, Esports is a career.

Do you have a mentor? If so, tell us about them.

Many people are my mentors, but even today they have no such an idea for that. I haven’t used a cliché in a long time, so now is the moment. A lifelong speech mentor will be my mom and my uncle, then a mentor for positive energy – my sister, mentor for the refined beauty and style – my dad (just to see how much we look alike). In the recent past I have also had a mentor for honesty – that is my adorable daughter. And for the last 15 years, I have had a single mentor from whom I have established key-lasting values. Thank you, Toto!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?

“A wild person with a calm mind can make anything.” And I am still wondering if there is someone who can be calmer than me ???

What’s something that recently made you smile?

One day while we were sitting in the living room, my daughter suddenly told me – “Dad I want you to enroll me to be a ballerina!” Even though I do not know why I told her bluntly – “I won’t!”. And she turned to me, looked at me, and asked me even more directly – “And why, is it difficult?” I have never smiled more sincerely until then.

What’s your favourite TV show?

If I have to choose between TV shows and movies, I am not sure which model of sports car to buy next in the Real Racing 3 mobile game.

If you could meet any historical figure, who would they be?

How much does it cost to meet everyone? And … I will pay you by invoice.

What’s the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to you?

The most? Really? Wow, once upon a time I forgot what I had forgotten… (here come those inaudible voices from a distance).

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

I am too extroverted to be an introverted person. I am the kind of person who trusts almost anyone because I know that trust is the most valuable thing for long-term relationships.

What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?

Catching up on the beauties all around me with my lifetime companion, my camera, so I can enjoy all that beauty again and again and again… As I said earlier, my eye needs to be fed with beautiful things all the time.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In a better place than 127.0.0.1 :). This means that I am living every present moment, so I am always where I am meant to be. Please ask me this question when teleportation will officially work, and I will tell you exactly where I am gonna be in the next moment.

Ilija Kurteski – IESF’s Executive Management Assistant

Connecting with our community is the right way! It’s really important to give you a peek “behind the curtain” and show you who are the people who work at our organization!

Today you’ll learn more about our Executive Management Assistant Ilija Kurteski!

Hi Ilija! In order for our audience to get to know you better, tell us a few words about yourself.

I want to consider myself as someone who is likely to combine opposite traits, a free spirit person , but with a very tight schedule. I want to enjoy life and nature at any given moment, but when it comes to the job performance, turning great ideas into reality and working on impossible projects gives me another perspective and there is nothing that can stop me from achieving my goal. Always dedicating my time to my true passion is part of what makes me happy.

How would you describe your job title?

Being an assistant to the General Secretary and also being involved in the event organisation and management of the IESF, requires you to be able to jump across tasks, meet deadlines, and be able to adapt to any given situation. So, that describes one agile, chameleon-like and vigilant person. 

How did you enter the Esports world?

Festivals and music events went silent with the Covid 19 outbreak. Those unfortunate circumstances brought a lot of free time and on the positive side, I spent that time searching for different possibilities. Being a gamer myself, I always wanted to work in the gaming industry and have a chance to organise esports events. When I saw the IESF job advertisement, I knew that this is my opportunity to enter the gaming & esports world. And here I am… It happened.

What’s the most exciting part of your job?

I love working with tight deadlines and constantly trying to achieve the impossible. For me , always setting my focus on the highest goal is the right fuel to motivate me and bring out the best in me.

Where did you work before this position?

My previous job … Well, that was the journey of a lifetime. Working as a Production Manager of music festivals and concerts with a 10.000+ audience is not an easy task. Let me put it this way, It’s a job of a professional problem solver, with a special orientation towards music, music events and security,

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Actually, as I mentioned previously, I am a gamer myself and I enjoy every aspect of working in the IESF. I am involved in working with various sectors and projects with the IESF and every day is a new challenge for me. 

What’s a skill you’d like to improve on?

I am constantly working on improving myself and my skills in general. I have seen , and I have worked with a lot of people, and currently I am learning from the pioneers in the Esports field. In my humble opinion, we all need different adjustments, but everything begins and ends with responsibility. 

What’s your idea of a perfect day?

Cozy little shack with minimalistic design, located in the Swiss Rigi Mountains with perfect view and a good wi-fi connection.

What are the values that drive you?

Dedication, hard work and loyalty.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I always enjoy long hikes at high altitudes and conquering new mountain peaks. 

What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?

Swiss army knife, piece of mirror or magnifying glass, and a notepad – gotta keep track of everything

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Growing up and being a very active kid was pretty much fun, I must say. From being a boy-scout to being a choir member and at the same time going to music school and learning to play the violin, well, I had a lot of choices. One thing I always said to myself was “whatever you do it must have music involved in it”. I started with producing music festivals, and now I am organizing the IESF WC. Nowadays – Esports is my music.   

What artist/band is your guilty pleasure?

Avenged Sevenfold and Iron Maiden. There is a strange energy and uplifting power in those songs and those riffs , anyway, remember –  always, keep on rockin \m/

Imy Park – IESF’s Global Programs & Media Supervisor

Connecting with our community is the right way! It’s really important to give you a peek “behind the curtain” and show you who are the people who work at our organization!

Today you’ll learn more about our Global Programs & Media Supervisor Imy Park! 

Hi Imy! In order for our audience to get to know you better, tell us a few words about yourself.

During my university years, one of my professionals used to tell me that I worked like a “Trojan.” I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goals for myself. I’m always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness.

How long have you been part of IESF?

Wow, time flies! The 3rd anniversary of being an IESF family is in 2022.

What’s the most exciting part of your job?

Meeting passionate and energetic people from all over the world and learning from IESF leadership and colleagues from each other.

What’s your most-used productivity hack?

“Creating shared goals within a team” and “Keeping the end in mind.” Creating a solid team spirit based around shared goals, achievements and rewards to increase productivity and teamwork, and thinking about the positive consequences of getting to the end.

What’s something you find challenging about your work?

This is inevitable as I work for an international organization. Still, it isn’t easy and challenging that I cannot work 24/7 to communicate with our Esports family even if I try to do that.

How did you enter the Esports world?

It’s destiny that I got a job offer during the IESF’s annual Global Esports Executive Summit (GEES) back in 2018 while working for a conference agency. I’ve always been interested in being part of an international body and more for Esports while working with the IESF team, its members and stakeholders for Esports and GEES. I was excited about being part of the World Esports Family and the endless opportunities ahead with IESF.

If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be?

I would like to take more than one, but if I have to say one only, I would say water, the clean water.

What kind of music do you like?

It changes from time to time, but a song that can cheer me up at the beginning and end of the day with great lyrics. I recently started my morning with Loving Caliber’s Lucky Day.

The best book you’ve read recently?

It’s not the most recent book I’ve read, but I would like to introduce “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail.” The book inspired me throughout the writer’s physical challenges and emotional and spiritual realizations while on the trail. The book came out as a movie as well. I recommend everyone to watch it!

What animal would you consider your spirit animal?

I’m the wolf. The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections. Wolf symbolism and meaning include loyalty, family and friendship, teamwork, protection, wildness, freedom, instincts, playfulness, and other noble traits.

If you could meet any historical figure, who would they be?

Definitely Vincent van Gogh! Part of his letter to his brother Theo is the quote of my life. I feel like he is holding me when I’m going through a tough time or struggling with something in my life. Now I’m going through a similar period of struggle and despondency, of patience and impatience, of hope and desolation. But I must plod on and anyway, after a while I’ll understand more about making watercolours. If it were that easy, one wouldn’t take any pleasure in it. And it’s exactly the same with painting.

Hi Boban! In order for our audience to get to know you better, tell us a few words about yourself.

Esports veteran for 16 years. I never competed professionally, but have always been in the ecosystem. I am still struggling between my manager side and gamer side, but with age comes wisdom so now I am managing in the gaming industry.

How long have you been part of IESF and how do you achieve success in your role?

Almost 2 years. It has been a true challenge with COVID-19 hitting the world right after the elections. On the other hand, it gave me proper time to learn the processes and adjust accordingly. I helped the organization grow and restructure and it is my ultimate goal to establish IESF as the unifying body for esports.

What do you love most about what you do?

The speed that everything is happening. It’s developing so fast, and what you know today, can easily become old news tomorrow. In my nature, I love challenges and this is a big one. 

If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be?

Problem solver, maybe? There isn’t such a position invented, but it should be there

What’s one thing you’re really bad at?

I can’t say NO. I accept everything and try everything and still believe that everything is possible.

What’s one thing you’re really good at?

As the title says, solving problems. Quick thinking and fast adaptation to the situation. 

What nickname do you prefer to be called?

Everyone here calls me Toto

Coffee or tea?

COFFEE

Favourite music.

I love Hard rock, Metallica is my favorite band.

Who inspires you?

That would be our president, Vlad. Ever since I met him in 2016 I knew our paths will cross again and that I will be able to learn from the best. 

Would you rather be the funniest or smartest person in the room?

Funniest, 100%. We should all enjoy life as much as possible. 

Let’s talk about Esports! What are your goals and how do you think Esports will grow and develop in the next few years?

My goals are to make the players more appreciated, all of them, not just the professionals. Majority of Esports players are underappreciated and I want to change that. Esports will be an official sport, we will see it on major events worldwide and hopefully one day at the Olympics. 

What does Esports mean to you?

It’s my passion and I love it. I live, breathe and talk Esports 24/7. It’s my life!
