eSports organization Tempo Storm announced today that they're bringing NYChrisG into their fold, a move that will expand their competitive portfolio to include fighting games.

Originally a professional Hearthstone team, Tempo Storm first began expanding into other eSports fields when they picked up Heroes of the Storm team Symbiote Gaming to play under their banner earlier this year. NYChrisG is Tempo Storm's first competitive fighting games player.

“I met Reynad (Andrey “Reynad” Yanyuk, CEO and Owner of Tempo Storm) through a friend, and as we talked I quickly learned how he was interested in expanding Tempo Storm into the FGC," NYChrisG said in a press release, on how talks of the sponsorship began.

"At the time I wasn't sponsored. I was looking for a way to travel to events and get into streaming to further my gaming career. We had the same goals in mind and we came to an agreement. I'm happy to say that I'm a part of Tempo Storm!”
“The Fighting Game Community shows a genuine passion for their games and has some of the most exciting events and personalities," said Reynad, Temple Storm CEO and owner.

"ChrisG is a hardworking, high caliber player that we're lucky to be working with, and I expect great things from him.”

NYChrisG's first fighting games tournament appearance under his new sponsor will be at Final Round 18. If you'd like to congratulate NyChrisG on his new appointment, you can reach him via his Twitter handle @NYChrisG.
