Heroes of the Storm Team

Heroes of the Storm Team

This year we have rebuilt our HotS team from the ground up with Cody “Spuce” Baldwin as the only returning player.  He and coach Jared “Syn” Karsmizki looked to recruit players capable of achieving success in Heroes of the Dorm 2018.  They first turned to skilled League of Legends players Jake “Jaykonus” Honas and Tucker “Yabbbyyy” Peirce to fill in the assassin roles, and then turned to tryouts to fill the remaining roster spots.  There, they found Noah “Yurmum” Harvey, Matthew “Programmer” Johnstone, and Ben “ThatOneGuy” Pysher to round out the team.  They have been working every week to improve in order to be ready for the big tournament this spring.
