Tempo Storm sign Games Academy
By: stich
Time: 2016-02-11 02:26
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Tempo Storm return to CS:GO with the signing of Games Academy, an all-Brazilian team whose most recent success has been qualifying for the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier.

Tempo Storm's previous venture in CS:GO came to an end in August 2015 after it dropped its team and decided to focus on other games and bide its time before another CS:GO-related signing.

Hints that the organisation would pick up a new team have been in the water for the past few days and are now confirmed as the organisation has announced the acquisition of Games Academy, a Brazilian team whose organisation is the brainchild of Luminosity's Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and who have often vied in the shadows of their more successful cousin.

hen1 and his teammates sign to Tempo Storm 

Games Academy's coach Luiz "peacemaker" Tadeu offered some words on the signing of his players:

"We’re extremely excited to be part of this new Tempo Storm era. It’s been quite few months since they’ve had a CS:GO team and we are extremely honored that they choose to give an opportunity for an original Brazilian team to represent them. Even though we changed our lineup recently, things are going great and our atmosphere within the team is amazing. We are going to be in top form for the upcoming months and we can’t wait to bring our first 'storm' at the next CS:GO event."

In addition, Tempo Storm owner Andrey “Reynad” Yanyuk (who himself was a competitive Hearthstone player) spoke on signing the Brazilian talents:

"We are ecstatic to dive back into Counter Strike, and feel very fortunate that this is the roster we are doing it with. The former Games Academy team are incredibly hardworking and hungry for success - two of the key character traits I look for in esports competitors. I look forward to building the Tempo Storm brand with the team, especially among the underrepresented and passionate Brazilian community."

Tempo Storm's new lineup is:

Henrique "hen1" Teles
Lucas "lucas" Teles
Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Joao "felps" Vasconcellos
Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves

 Luiz "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach}

The Tempo Storm lineup will next be in offline action at the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier in two weeks time where they will seek one of eight spots to the next Major of MLG Columbus 2016. The team are also plying their trade in ESEA Premier where they are currently 5-0.

Nice job on the sponsor!

2nd. not really

2016-02-11 13:35:29
Still not really? You sure about that?
2016-02-16 06:08:39
noo ;-;
2016-02-11 02:27:23
This team will defo qualify for ESL Pro League. They are 5-0 in ESEA Premier right now and they did qualify for the Offline Qualifier for Columbus, don't see them going to the major tho. Would be a massive upset, a bit like that 90-10 match between HR & Vexed.
2016-02-11 02:28:27
Groups are not out for the Offline Qualifier yet
2016-02-11 02:31:45
Out of the 16 teams there (aka 15 others besides them), there is only a questionmark on the following teams and I think these are the only teams they can beat: NME; Mongolz, Renegades, Gambit & GayPorn.

They need to get REALLY LUCKY.
2016-02-11 02:34:00
i think they can upset c9
2016-02-11 02:50:58
i dont think it'd be an upset if they beat c9
2016-02-11 03:23:00
c9 winning would be an upset in any match
2016-02-11 03:34:12
tru tru
2016-02-11 03:49:25
they almost upset CLG and c9 on bo3 sometime ago, since this team has basically the same power as the old roster, the chances are still there, the teams underrated them just as you did tho
2016-02-11 02:56:23
Stfu Brazil fangay
2016-02-11 02:59:25
no :>
2016-02-11 02:59:56
In all honesty tho, GA is a good team and I was a fan of the Tempo Storm sponsor. It should be a good fit for them.
2016-02-11 03:00:52
a even better fact: a sticker of that logo would look awesome
2016-02-11 03:02:12
seriously, racism again?

good news, another team taking what NA players can't... good job guys

This is why no one likes the brazil fangays, you are all toxic just like Thorin said
2016-02-12 18:45:32
thorin just say shit.. and all CSGO players know about that!
2016-02-12 19:23:44
He does, but you guys deliver on that one, most die hard fans of CS but way to over the top and it makes it bad. Very toxic
2016-02-12 22:51:10
well the 2 first seeds in the group are based on the major results, so they will get one of these 1 team from each of this list in there group

Clg/c9/mouz/ G2 and liquid/ vexed, f3 , Dig
2016-02-11 03:22:32
Vexed's odds were so bullshit there though, vexed attended the orevious major while HR didn't for example.
2016-02-11 10:28:39
Dude do you really think that they will surely beat Gambit? You didn't even watch at least couple of their matches and I am sure you have no idea about their strong maps. Why to make such foolish statements then?
2016-02-11 15:01:35
Gambit? Hell no, this team is too goddamn skilled.
2016-02-11 18:00:48
That is what everybody said about LG in the early 2015...U guys did not learn...never underestimate a BR team ;)
2016-02-11 21:04:39
scoots revealed the format/structure of the groups on stream, so that's something.
2016-02-11 07:33:29
they wont beat mongolz, mongolz will win katowice mark my words
2016-02-11 14:39:27

nice one. I just hope Tempo have enough money to bank them in USA.
2016-02-11 03:51:11
Lol ofc they have they are a big organization?
2016-02-11 10:02:38
Nice, now maybe other team from brazil will come up to america, as a GameAcademy Team, and continue to rekt americans!
2016-02-11 04:05:31
Yes I hope this is the case. I was kinda sad to see GA lose their great team. Perhaps Tempo can offer more money?
2016-02-11 04:19:39
I think tempo will pay very well, bz Fallen was really wanting the team until the end of major.. coz the possible stickers. For them left GA, I'm sure they had a good offer
2016-02-11 04:55:39
You don't know anything about golden chance do you?
2016-02-11 05:23:48

I'm not being rude lol, it's just like, the project was meant to make the team get picked up by another NA org, and not keep it with Games Academy. You really seem to not know much about golden chance.
2016-02-11 07:01:16
My friend, Fallen himself said on stream he wanted to keep the Team to have the GA sticker if they qualify.

The ideia was to get picked by an outside Org like you said, but with Dead's support, also with Azubu, Ibuypower and Razer's support Games Academy organization become sustainable, capable to keep a team.

I'm sad because i like the ideia of an International CS organization like GA, Fallen deserve it. Hope the org comes back when he retires.
2016-02-11 13:40:22
awesome, congrats GA

2016-02-12 00:29:05
This means that another Games Academy squad will move to NA
2016-02-12 01:05:56
no, fallen said yesterday that he'll not bring another team to GA. instead he'll invest money on projects here in brazil, since the scene has grown a bit in the last few months. he'll make bigger prize pools for tournaments.
2016-02-12 02:05:29
I don't find that a smart move at all tho. A third Brazilian team on NA would be amazing.
2016-02-12 02:57:38
anyway it will trigger some sponsors like mibr to take new br team to NA which will be great for NA/BR scene!
