Hey everyone - Jordan here. I've been getting a lot of questions recently about why we chose the name Criius Gaming for our esports organization, so I thought I'd write a short blog post about it.
Crius (or Krios) is the Titan of the Constellations in Greek mythology. Now, we aren't experts on Greek mythology, but the name and the meaning behind Crius really stood out. Space has always been fascinating to us and since our first team was going to be competing in the game Rocket League, we found the name Crius to be very fitting.
When we were coming up with a name for our organization we wanted something that was memorable and had symbolism. Lots of Greek gods are used for esports names, but Crius wasn't one that's been used. We decided to add the extra "i" as a stylistic choice and it also separates our name from any other companies who might be similar.
Since Crius is the Titan of the Constellations, we wanted to incorporate galaxies into our logo and our website design. We also decided to use the colours purple and green for the branding.
In conclusion, Crius is a unique Titan that has powerful symbolism. We relate to the notion of being unique as we are trying to build up Canadian esports by creating some awesome content and competing in Rocket League.
The sky isn't the limit for us - we are shooting for the stars!
