Phoenix joins MYM as our new Hearthstone division
Posted on April 11th of 2014 by Max Kieturakis
Today at MeetYourMakers it is a historical day as we are officially signing our first ever, Hearthstone team!
The team (formerly known as Phoenix) is a mix of players from all around Europe who have been putting up solid results ever since the release of Hearthstone. These seven players have all shown that they can compete with the best players in Hearthstone and will represent the MYM colors from now on. We truly believe that this team is the perfect fit for MeetYourMakers and we are thrilled to welcome them on-board.
Hearthstone has been really putting up impressive numbers regarding streaming but has also had some huge tournaments already. The recent SeatStory Cup and IEM Katowice tournament have shown that the competitive scene is healthy and that it has what it takes to become an electronic sport. We are very happy to be able to support the game by having a professional Hearthstone team.
Team captain Lewis “Blackout” Spencer had the following to say upon joining the team:
“It really is an honour to be able to join one of the biggest, most well known organisations in Esports in Meet Your Makers. We have a great group of players here, all top European tournament players, and I see no reason why we can’t carry on with our success under Phoenix as well as much, much more under the MYM name!”
MeetYourMakers’ PR Manager, Martin Krause provided mymym.com with this statement:
MeetYourMakers is thrilled to announce our new Hearthstone team! It’s immense how Hearthstone has grown and is still growing in esports. This was one of the reasons why we picked up this team. On the other side, the team has shown great results so we were able to come to a pretty quick agreement. We are really excited to see the development of the team and to see the Hearthstone scene grow! #MYMFIGHTING
