On Saturday night, the new coach, alongside his players, streamed and answer questions about his new role.

Surprisingly, zakk informed the fans that he will not be the in-game leader, but instead that role will be handed to Ricardo "boltz" Prass.

"I am not going to be the in-game leader," zakk said on Saturday's stream. "peacemaker was the guy who was making the calls inside the game, but the guys do not want that."

The 25-year-old coach has played for a variety of teams, most notably Keyd Stars. He has been playing Counter-Strike professionally since the 1.6 days.

Tempo Storm has most recently achieved top-three placings in their three most recent events, most notably at the MLG Americas Minor 2016 Finals, where they took home second place and got a spot in the ESL One Cologne 2016 qualifier.
