Today is a hard day for Team Blaze. We are officially announcing our decision to part ways with both Batterry and Roflcopter after a memorable and successful journey together.
Roflcopter represented Team Blaze since our inception. When Roflcopter first joined, we started out in the amateur scene and began the slow uphill climb towards the top. It was a long and steep road but progression was evident leading up to the Spring Regionals. Seeing his dream come to fruition was more than we could have asked for. Batterry stepped in during a critical phase for the team. In an effort to improve our staff and infrastructure, he started out as our coach. Over time, we felt confident in his potential and through his efforts he surfaced to become a core member of the team.
Team Blaze started from absolute scratch with aspirations and inspirations alike. Together we forged our way acquiring talent from the likes of Roflcopter and Battery. It is with great sadness that I am writing this post, but it is with great joy and pride as we look back on their career and development with Team Blaze.
Finally, I would like to share some personal words with you regarding our decision. Heroes of the Storm is very new game in which we hope to build and cement our legacy within the eSports industry. Talent will come and go, but friendship will not.
