PSISTORM Gaming has acquired the core players of Deadly Kittens, a world class team from Southeast Asia that has made Global Championship at Blizzcon the past 2 years (2016 was known as Imperium Pro Team).
We last saw them play Tempo Storm this past month ending the series 1-2 and finishing in 13th-16th in the Global Finals.
2017 has proven to be one of their most successful years and they are looking to do even better under PSISTORM Gaming.
“It’s common knowledge that they were able to achieve this much success despite effectively communicating with just 3 players due to the language barrier with their teammates who don’t speak English. This is an amazing feat, especially given the players all practice separately. We believe they can be the best in the world with the right adjustments to stabilize the player roster, practices, and infrastructure that PSISTORM Gaming can provide”, said KJ “Freeedom”.
“We will acquire the core 3 players and look to add the remaining 2. We are also reviewing NA as our target region. FilthyRake will be in charge of this HOTS team as we push for an even better 2018 for PSISTORM”, he added.
Damen “FilthyRake” Knight, who as mentioned will head the team said, “I’m excited for our return to Heroes of the Storm, especially from a hotbed of talent that is South East Asia. We are currently working on our options of competing in the major regions after the rule changes”.
