“Tempo Storm was my first Hearthstone team and it wasn't easy for me to make this decision. I'll miss my old teammates but I'll be seeing each of them at plenty of events. Tempo Storm's roster is full of amazing top tier players and they won’t have a problem being successful in upcoming events.” added TidesofTime. “Being a former Dota and LoL player, Cloud9 has been a team I've admired for quite a while. I'm incredibly excited for this new chapter in life where I get to be on a team that's made such a huge mark in esports. I will try my best and hope I can live up to the Cloud9 name.”
