New esports organization makes a splash with three big Hearthstone signings
A trio of Europe's top Hearthstone free agents are about to find a new team with a brand-new U.K. organization making its first forays into esports.
New organization ManaLight will announce later this week it's signed Harald "Powder" Gimre, Bertil "Frezzar" Fall, and William "Modernleper" Bindloss as its initial Hearthstone roster, the Daily Dot has learned.
Gimre had been looking for a new team following his departure from Trig amid allegations of unpaid salaries, but his high Trig salary was said to be a stumbling block.
Fall previously played for Fnatic before leaving when his contract expired in May, while Bindloss recently left Razor's Edge Gaming. He'd been expected to sign with Dignitas because of his close relationships with players on that team.
With a trio of established names under its belt, the team is still looking to make even more signings and are in talks with a number of other European players. The team is also recruiting an analyst, but is not offering any salary for that position.
