Harry “Massan” Cheong revealed that he parted ways with SoloMid while streaming earlier today, citing unspecified changes within the Hearthstone team that he didn’t agree with.
Cheong was the first Hearthstone player signed by the established SoloMid brand in May 2014, and was joined by Jeffrey “Trump” Shih in July. The pair were joined by Hearthstone personality and streamer Octavian “Kripparrian” Morosan in January of this year.
While the team is primarily focused on streaming, Cheong and Shih have both been more active in the competitive scene in 2015
Cheong started the year well with victory in the Pinnacle 3. His performances soon stalled, however, as he lost in the groups of Seat Story Cup 2 and dropped out of the Kinguin Pro League due to personal issues.
Though SoloMid has invested in several of the top streamers in Hearthstone, its active participation in the game seems relatively limited. Morosan recently announced his first tournament, Challengstone, which will be hosted by rival team Tempo Storm rather than his own team.
