Tempo Storm drop team

Tempo Storm have released their CS:GO team, Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan has revealed.

The North American Counter-Strike scene is widely expected to undergo another off-season shuffle, once again with Spencer "⁠Hiko⁠" Martin, who has strongly been linked with Team Liquid, as one of the protagonists.

The first organisation to act is Tempo Storm, who, according to a post from Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan on ESEA's forums, have dropped their entire squad after Daniel "⁠roca⁠" Gustaferri and Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta decided to link up with the ex-Nihilum squad, currently known as Maximum Effort.


Tempo Storm cut ties with their players 

The duo's decision comes after a season marked by mixed results, which include an eighth-place finish in the ESL ESEA Pro League North American division and 5th-6th place finishes at the CEVO finals and at the ESL One Cologne qualifier.

As for the remaining three players, Ronnie "⁠ryx⁠" Bylicki, Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz and ShahZaM, their future is currently up in the air, the former Cloud9 sniper stressed.

Tempo Storm had the following squad:

United States Ronnie "⁠ryx⁠" Bylicki
Canada Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz
United States Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan
United States Daniel "⁠roca⁠" Gustaferri
United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta

TS deserves better team
2015-08-13 14:17
they do. with the exception of clg and c9 no other team kept their core (3+) players... sad
2015-08-13 15:06
clg has only used 8 different players in the last 2 years
2015-08-14 05:10
1 week later TEMPO STORM GETS NEW TEAM

2015-08-13 18:12
roca is the only good player in this lineup =]
2015-08-13 18:47
ShahZ was playing really well in North America and did great at the qualifiers, and autimatic was doing good as well. This team coulda done some stuff given time
2015-08-13 20:06
"American team" 2 Polaks 1 Pakistani 1 Italian 1 Chinese
2015-08-13 18:13
Why does any of that matter, they all live and are from the US. This game isn't race vs race.. This isn't COD. LOL
2015-08-13 18:16
did i say american team?
2015-08-13 18:49
Congrats for most retarded, ignorant, uninformed comment of all time (unless trolling). There's no such thing as an "American" team by your logic, since ALL Americans besides Native Americans are immigrants. Furthermore, Autimatic is Viet-American, not Chinese-American.
2015-08-13 19:23
do you even understand what comprises being American?
2015-08-13 19:27
As Bill Murray once said on Stripes - "Our forefathers were kicked out of every respectable country... we are the mutts. But there is no animal more lovable, more loyal, more faithful, than the mutt"

2015-08-14 04:08
We did not all originate from africa. Peoples originated from the southern half of asia. There, was the fertile crescent, a strip of land which was highly fertile and had animals abundant. This allowed for what we know today as mesopotamia. It was not in africa. It was close, but it was not all in africa.

Wrong. The fertile crescent is where civilized nations first arose. People actually originated from Africa.
2015-08-14 13:41
Stanford genealogists have found 2/3 genes come from the area in which Europe is now located, and 1/3 from Africa. So I guess you are correct in some ways :D

Wtf? Two weeks ago I somewhere read something about "they can beat all the good teams if you give them more time." and now this? xD
2015-08-13 14:32
why? they had enough time, 2 weeks, not top1 world so why the hell would they push these lows?
2015-08-13 14:47
The problem isn't how good they are or how good they could be, it's that two players that used to play with Hiko want to play with him again.
2015-08-13 15:24
?? hiko is leaving the nihilum team that they are going to. roca never played with hiko, and auti got cut/left the prior team.

2015-08-13 15:59
LOL what? they have been to one single lan as a team, where they played well. They haven't even played close to 100 maps in their entire existance. The autism is strong here. Why comment on matters your aren't informed on bud

best team to form without touching clg/c9. nitr0, ptr, fugly, roca, hiko and adreN as a coach/igl
2015-08-13 15:39
that would be nice, one can dream. If "igl's" could lead from spec in the future.. would be cool to see the talent consolidated while mostly keeping their roles. ex: NAF, nitro, shroud, ska, swag and roca, rush, tarik, ptr/jdm, hiko top 2 NA teams
2015-08-13 15:45
I dont understand how people still think adren can in game lead.

i believe he cant lead and play in the same time. as a coach and analyst he is really good.
2015-08-13 23:52
I hear he is super whiny and bitchy to his team in a way that is not productive or constructive at all.
2015-08-14 04:03
roca and autimatic are retards if they think they'll be better off with fucking semphis valens and sancz/desi is this a fucking joke
2015-08-13 16:02

2015-08-13 18:13
"Master race"? You guys just don't give up on that, do you?
2015-08-14 00:08
Welp...
2015-08-13 18:19
So if Roca and Autimatic left for Maximum Effort, are they joining up w/ Semphis/Sancz/Desi, while Hiko is going to Liquid and Valens being cut? Or are they cutting Desi and leaving Valens? I'm confused.
2015-08-13 19:33
desi is out.

2015-08-13 20:00
I like how the second its clear Hiko is getting off of ex-Nihilum, autimatic is willing to come back. And people say hes not toxic lmfao
2015-08-13 20:11
2015-08-13 22:28
thats what happens when a hearthstone player tries to run a team in a game he knows absolutely nothing about. he expected basically a brand new roster to compete (and win again) top european teams, and be able to consistently beat c9, when its just not going to happen regularly as a new team. if this line up had stayed together, which i pretty much knew it wouldnt, but if it had, it wouldve been a solid team and definitely a contender in na
2015-08-13 23:41
Good point with 'Hearthstone'. Different sort of game entirely. I agree with your last comment. I think they were definitely headed in the right direction. It's just unfortunate that.. 1. two players wanted to leave to play with Hiko (as I understand it), and a result.. 2. the owner made a knee-jerk emotional reaction to get rid of the team.
2015-08-14 00:10
