ShahZaM joins Tempo Storm

Former Cloud9 member Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan has joined Tempo Storm's roster for the CEVO S7 Professional division and the ESL ESEA Pro League.

The North American AWPer had been a free agent since being released by Cloud9 together with Kory "⁠SEMPHIS⁠" Friesen following the team's slump in form, which saw them finish in a disappointing 7th/8th place at the ESEA Finals.

After analysing his options for roughly two weeks, Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan has decided to join the ranks of Tempo Storm, who are competing in North America's most important leagues, CEVO Professional and the ESL ESEA Pro League.

 ShahZaM joins Tempo Storm

This is the second roster change in less than a month for Tempo Storm, who recently made headlines when they signed longtime Luminosity member Warren "⁠hades⁠" Rettich. ShahZaM, who rose to fame with some strong individual displays while playing for LunatiK and Denial, will step into the shoes of Ricky "⁠sLip⁠" Cohen, who has already left the team's roster in both leagues.

With these changes, Tempo Storm now have:

United States Ronnie "⁠ryx⁠" Bylicki
Canada Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz
Canada Warren "⁠hades⁠" Rettich
Canada Mitch "⁠glorinsz⁠" MacInnis
United States Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan

2015-05-11 02:31
LMFAO i played CS competitively for almost 10 years and tk's on that situation are unacceptable. there is a radar on screen whilst also his push must've been practiced in other occasions. this tk proves that shahzam is either totally unaware of what happens around him or is a really bad on processing calls during stressful rounds/moments.

If he plays like he did on denial pre-c9 then it's a good pickup. What he said about not being put in a position to succeed on c9 had some merit to it. Not a shahzam fan either, but he's right to some extent.
2015-05-11 02:05
whatd he say? all i kno is that he said he was disappointed in his own performances too.
2015-05-11 02:10
I'm sorry but they NEVER put him in one after how long...? 5-6 months? yeah, I call complete BS on that. And even so, he made TONS of easy mistakes that shouldn't happen (to the amount that it did) at that level. Ever. I do agree though he was much better pre-C9, albeit that was the event of his life, let's be real.
2015-05-11 02:13
Where did I say they _never_ put him in a position to succeed? If you read what I wrote, i said "has SOME merit to it" and "right to SOME extent".. some being the keyword. Yeah, he fucked up a lot of rounds that he should've closed, but on a regular basis bad calls were made by gares (and semphis when he overruled) which didn't allow him to be an impact awper. and yeah, that lan where denial knocked out c9 was the event of his life, i agree
2015-05-11 02:50
That is not exactly what he said tho, he said that he started playing bad when they started playing more structured cs which is not there problem if he can't play more organized cs like the europeans.
2015-05-11 03:10
If he did say it like that, then I don't know why. c9 is the antithesis of structured cs
2015-05-11 03:12
He said at first they were playing unstructured cs and thats when the team was at their best, when they started to play structured csgo is when he started to struggle.
2015-05-11 03:32
At least its somewhere he belongs.
2015-05-11 02:05
should join a female team maibe he will do better there

Valve needs to ban Shahzam. He pays people to ddos so he can steal your skins, he matchfixes and got caught attempting to by cheats. Couldn't be more shady.

what's hilarious is that shahzam and ryx used to hate each other and they'd shittalk each other on their streams
2015-05-11 08:51
It's called, people can change for the better lol. People learn from their mistakes, forgive and forget (maybe forget), and move on with their lives. If you set aside the differences between you and other people, great things can be achieved. That's a general rule of thumb, you should know that.

2015-05-11 14:43
Looks like we'll have about 7 teams that are all roughly the same. It'll make it more competitive (which is good), but I wish we'd get at least one that's Tier 1.
2015-05-11 15:18
honestly when i saw the Shahzam vs Cloud9 video title i thought it was going to be a Teamkill highlight reel xd
2015-05-11 15:21
This team should fit him perfactly
2015-05-11 15:35
this dazed guy totally ruined shazham.. im sure with 1-2 more events of experience he would be awesome
2015-05-11 15:59
BOT going into BOT team, makes sense.
2015-05-11 16:15
people still blame him for the inferno scene? wow.. its not like you never do mistakes..
2015-05-11 17:04
Probably a better fit for Shahzam than with C9. Wouldn't be surprised if Hades eventually goes off on him though.
