Tempo Storm announce cheti signing

Tempo Storm have announced that they have completed the signing of former OnlineBOTS member Hendrik "⁠cheti⁠" Vallimägi.

The Estonian player will replace Aitor "⁠SOKER⁠" Fernández, who has been given his marching orders just four weeks into what was supposed to be a three-month trial after failing to impress with the team.

The move follows Tempo Storm's shocking elimination in the second round of the first open qualifier for the Europe Minor at the hands of Finnish side Conquer.

Earlier in the week, Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn's team had been eliminated in the closed qualifier for the ZOTAC Cup Masters Europe Finals in the first round of the lower bracket following defeats to LDLC and Sprout.

cheti is Tempo Storm's new fifth player

This will be the biggest challenge in cheti's career. The 23-year-old, who burst onto the scene in 2013 with MayaM, was recently part of the OnlineBOTS mix that won TTU e-Sport 2018 over SPLY, playing alongside Kristjan "⁠fejtZ⁠" Allsaar and his now Tempo Storm teammate HS.

"I haven't had much luck in the past few years when trying to break through," cheti told Tempo Storm's website.

"I have been waiting for an opportunity this big for a long time, so I feel very grateful to receive this chance.

"I can't wait to start competing again, and I will give my best to succeed."

Tempo Storm will be hoping to find some much-needed stability with their new player after a rough week that also saw the team part ways with coach Larratz "dracU" Domínguez after it was discovered that he had two VAC banned accounts to his name.

cheti will make his first appearance for Tempo Storm in a week's time as the team will attend the $50,000 Moche XL Esports, in Lisbon, where big names like SK and HellRaisers will also be competing.

With these changes, Tempo Storm now have:

Estonia Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn
Portugal Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco
Spain Christian "⁠loWel⁠" Garcia Antoran
Poland Paweł "⁠innocent⁠" Mocek
Estonia Hendrik "⁠cheti⁠" Vallimägi

He was t1 now he's also t2,but he's Ego stays t1. Also Michu shows he can shoot well even against T1 teams but he's not gonna win game only by his own. That shuffle could work, but... Ago performing better and better I would leave them alone for now.
2018-06-04 02:03
you're right they are getting better and better. But maybe they should -TOAO / phr +snax and maybe MICHU

2018-06-03 21:25
wtf why are you mad?
2018-06-03 21:44
I'm mad cuz this team will disband 100% The last 4 teams that Fox joined all of them haven't a dedicated IGL and this team will be the same thing Best team: Mixwell Hs Fox Cromen +Dedicated IGL (He doesn't need to frag so well cuz if u see they have 4 good players , best options for me: Krystal/accilion
2018-06-03 21:48
Honestly.. Maybe just wait till Fnatic kicks Golden or Xizt.

X6tence again no pls he deserves something better... A lot of luck Sokeron <3 Have a nice day: keep_SOKER_ffs
2018-06-03 21:28
wtf? ex6 is the best spanish team or?
2018-06-03 21:29
No, at this moment can be top 3 of Spain top here is. 1.- Movistar Riders 2.- Giants (and improving a lot) 3.-X6/Dragons(ex-g2Vodafone) Have a nice day: keep_SOKER_ffs
2018-06-03 21:31
Ok then put him for RMN on giants
2018-06-03 21:32
I think Giants is not going to change the roster at least for 3 month, because they changed in less than 2 months: - Drifkinho +Alex -obj +blastinho But it can be good change i think. Have a nice day: keep_SOKER_ffs
2018-06-03 21:34
yeah.... I knew that change would happen cuz if they don't go to the major the team will do more changes or disband The solution is an IGL needed and out HS as the star player
2018-06-03 21:39
where is kpi on the list? i dont follow spanish cs but i thought they were like the best spanish team couple of months ago
2018-06-03 22:22
Wow i forgot them, I think they are top 3 with x6tence and dragons atm. Have a nice day: keep_SOKER_ffs
2018-06-03 22:24
So there are 3 teams on #3? Thats strange hahaha
2018-06-04 10:03
They have the same level of skill and teamplay Have a nice day: keep_SOKER_ffs
2018-06-04 10:12
so is this top 5?
2018-06-05 10:44
From top 3 to 5 I can't choose anyone above the other, they are on the same level Have a nice day: keep_SOKER_ffs

They probably didn't have that chance though, mixwell can do better than this team. A shame that SOKER was let go by TS, I think he didn't play that bad, but apparently for what HS says in his statement the language barrier was too difficult to overcome.

I cannot understand what this team wants. SOKER had a bad start and as soon as he seemed to be finding his ground he gets removed. Tempo Storm apparently goes for an "upgrade" and bring a no namer with nearly no matches in record covered by HLTV.org. Well, good luck is all I can say.
2018-06-03 21:14
He's an IGL. If you have been around for the last years you obviously remember cheati lul

Yeah I don't go that far. However I checked his match history and I must say having 18 consecutive games under 1. rating isn't fancy at all. For someone who doesn't know him and just looks at this roster change, at first sight thinks it was a bad decision and that's what I think. Don't blame me for that.

Hello!? mixwell?
2018-06-03 21:33
I think soker wasn't the problem! Tempo Storm are not coordenated. Their lack of tatics and the not so smart decisions are making the team go down instead of going up..
2018-06-03 21:33
How many estonian fags here
2018-06-03 21:33
hope im wrong but imho this team will disband after ~2-3 months...

Well apparently SOKER was removed because his poor communication was compromising the team's coordination. He wasn't having excellent numbers at all, but I kind of was starting to appreciate his playstyle, but if that's the case, well, he had to go.

maybe but signing this guy ??? Even for a Team like TS seems odd. Shouldn't they aiming for better/known players ? Not just signing a friend ? Guess it won't matter only speeding up the disband process :).
2018-06-04 00:44
You said it yourself, its TS. The most overrated team in hltv
2018-06-04 02:13

OMEGALUL ! Soker was doing pretty great for an unknown player coming up ! TS is just Dignitas 2.0 ... Losing all hopes for this team honestly, great management, great bootcamp ... If the new signing was Mixwell, I'd would think twice but this cheti ? RIP the Storm
