The move was first revealed by Lee himself on his stream yesterday. Lee is considered one of the foremost players in Hearthstone’s limited arena format, and has previously achieved the maximum 12 wins in three consecutive attempts on three different servers.
Lee is also a very popular streamer, and has contributed content to the Tempo Storm website for some time. In its official statement, the team said that Lee would be working on the next installment of its Lord of the Arena tournament series.
Sources close to the team suggest that he is unlikely to play a prominent role in more general competitive play. Tempo Storm is returning to China to take part in the NEL 2015 Spring season and will require a fourth player for that competition. The team is likely to announce another signing in the coming weeks to fill this spot. One thing is certain about this player: It won’t be CompLexity‘s David “Dog” Caero who filled the role earlier this year. Tempo Storm did reach out Caero about the position, but he opted to stay with CompLexity.
