One-time League team ggLA opens Hearthstone division
GgLA has been almost completely off the radar since it released League of Legends roster in November 2013. But earlier today, it made its new Hearthstone roster official.
The team has been brought together by veteran of the Hearthstone scene since the early beta, Travis "Freshca" Boyer. Boyer himself is a renowned deck innovator and has a host of online cup successes to his name. He is also currently undefeated in the pro division of the NVIDIA Pro-Am.
In forming the team, Boyer has united a number of online cup veterans and well-known players within the pro scene, some of whom are practice partners to top pro players. Among these are Alex "ARee" Lee, who recently won the Hearthstats Champions' League and has a number of top ten legend finishes and highly regarded Australian player Tom "tomflr" Finlayson.
Also on the team are Anthony "Ant" Trevino who made it to the final stage of qualification for the World Championships last year and Chance Rebholz.
Though this team doesn't include any truly big name players, it does represent a significant collection of knowledge and expertise in open cups and deck building that will certainly help them establish a presence.
