The self-proclaimed “TV Guide of Esports” is growing rapidly, adding its fourth new esports team since opening its pro division less than a month ago.
FollowEsports has added a seven-strong Hearthstone division to its ranks, acquiring the roster previously known as Illuminati along with Victor “Vlps” Lopez. Anthony “Ant” Trevino will act as co-manager.
The team has a reasonable amount of competitive success to it’s name. Matt “Dart” Orgel recently finished second in the AfreecaTV Collegiate Championship, while Lopez impressed as part of the victorious American team in the US vs CN Gold Series Challenge in China.
Orgel, Lopez, and David “Protohype” Kunze will compete in the North American regional qualifier for November’s Hearthstone World Championship.
In August, FollowEsports acquired the Counter-Strike team formerly known as SKDC, Super Smash Bros Melee players McCain “MacD” Lavelle and Michael “Nintendude” Brancato, and North American World of Warcraft team Carlos Bandidos.
