fox takes over IGL role in Tempo Storm

Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco has assumed the in-game leader role in Tempo Storm, the 31-year-old has revealed.

In an interview with RTP Arena, the Portuguese veteran explained that the decision was made after Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Giants in the quarter-final stage of Moche XL Esports.

fox will be taking over the mantle from Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn, who had been Tempo Storm's in-game leader since the team was officially announced, in early May.

Before the start of the event, HS had admitted that he was still trying to come to terms with the role, which was completely new to him.

fox is once again an IGL

fox, who has prior experience in the role from guiding dignitas, admitted that the team "did not expect" to lose to Giants, and lamented HS' decision to pick Train instead of Inferno as the decider map against the Portuguese team.

"When HS did the veto, we were not present," fox explained. "He said to me that someone had told him that Giants were very strong on Inferno and that he decided to bet on Train so there would be no surprises.

"I spoke with him after the match, because I thought that Train had been randomly picked. Inferno is perhaps my best map. It is between Inferno and Mirage. He had a mental block or something, or he was a bit scared.

"It was our first offline tournament, it is normal that we are a bit stressed. cheti had not played at a professional level for two years, so pressure got to him a bit, but that is normal.

"But the map decision was our biggest mistake, because I believe that on Inferno we could have beaten them or at least put up more of a fight, because we did not have any chances on Train."

Tempo Storm are already confirmed for Fusion.bet Masters II, a $10,000 online tournament kicking off on Tuesday, and will also take part in the final two open qualifiers for the Europe Minor, the first of which begins in just a few hours.

This team will only be truly "good" if they get a dedicated IGL the cheti move to seems bad seeing as he´s not a igl and is kinda subpar compared to the remaining players they need a coach (like kassad) and a good IGL fox as IGL isn´t gotta cut it if this team wants to be something else than a Dignitas (with fox) 2.0

Fox was already IGL basically .. everyone that watched them play on LAN saw that at the beginning of rounda was always fox talking... HS is only good on mid round calls. So i guess this is the "right" thing to do because HS will finally be the real HS, fox will only call on the beginning of rounds and mid round calls will be between HS, Fox and Innocent. Only true change here is that HS makes no more decisions outside of the game and fox will.. picking map was one of the worst decisions I ever saw a team make

like he did in OpTiC with his insane 1.02 rating? lmao HS overrated trash
2018-06-11 16:57
you act like that is a bad rating
2018-06-12 04:46
... because it is? 1.02 is literally below average in rating 2.0 and nothing in his previous role excused that rating. it's not horrible but it miles away from "fragging hard"
2018-06-12 10:46
nice try, his rating 1.0 is 1.07 that is far from below average
2018-06-12 16:04
rating 1.0 is irrelevant and obsolete. if he has a higher 1.0 rating than 2.0 but still a low rating, then that just means that he gets low impact frags, has a low round contribution or just generally padded k/d stats. you basically proved my point by pointing out that useless fact, so ty for that
2018-06-12 16:34
lol you must be new if you think rating 2.0 is so much better, it can be all over the place
2018-06-12 16:37
rating 1.0 was rewarding to exit fraggers and eco hunters, rating 2.0 actually factors in impact. nt though
2018-06-12 16:39
rating 2.0 can go both ways, there are times it greatly inflates rating as well. due to your desire to be edgy, and condescending needlessly, and general lack of an ability to have an adult conversation, I will be abstaining from replying further.

Lost to portuguese team, blaming the veto while you should blame your own team map pool. If you can't outplay an unknown portuguese team even on a slightly less favorable map (mistake in veto) then your team has really low potential

50/50 spanish/portuguese team who, btw, almost beat Hellraisers too. The TS team is still new (just a few weeks old). They have potential to be a T2-T3 team if the players step up and bring their act together, but I agree that blaming a loss (against a theoretically weaker team) on the veto is not a very promising indicator for the future of this team lol...

Yeah i was a bit severe with the "unknown portuguese team" because they did great vs HR (who was disappointing obviously) and i was rooting for Giants in that game. Still a big disappointment losing and blaming a possible mistake in the veto when all your players are at least Tier 3 and should beat Giants. Don't know what to think about fox : some (really) highs with G2, FaZe (and stand in with SK he played well) but some lows as well (Dignitas failed, that Tempo Storm doesn't look very good).

Dignitas failled cause fox can’t igl and play decent at same time TS will fail cause innocent prefer to lose over being IGL.... Not his fault if the supose IGL decide not to give calls...

Those headlines... lol, poor FOX! btw the questions and his answers make no sense, since we know it was not the really problem (mental block? HS was alone?, really? where were the team if not together on that time). any way, they've a lot to grow as a team... I wish them good luck! We smart, we loyal, we friendly, we are from BRAZIL!
