J.Storm Dota 2 Roster Update September 28, 2019

QUEENS, NEW YORK — SEPTEMBER 28, 2019 — We have reached an agreement with Virtus.pro over the permanent transfer of Roman “Resolut1on” Fomynok. Roman will meet up with his new team ahead of today’s roster lock. We’d like to thank him for his time on J.Storm and wish him well ahead of the new DPC season.

In his place, we would like to welcome Braxton “Brax” Paulson on trial. Brax brings a wealth of experience and leadership to a team of veterans and up-and-coming players. Brax will play position three, while David “Moo” Hull will revert back to the carry position that we saw last year.

General Manager, Chandler Dent, had this to say on the team moving forward:

“We’d like to thank Reso for his hard work through the later portions of last season, as well as his professionalism over the past few days while talks have taken place. We’re sad to see him go on late notice, but we respected his wishes in wanting to join VP. We wish him the best of luck this season.

The timing of the deal makes things a bit difficult for us heading in to Major qualifiers next week, but we’re confident that we have what it takes to do well. Brax impressed us last year with his performances against us and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the team.”

Roman on his departure:

“It’s been a short but pleasant journey, but I'm very grateful for the opportunity J.Storm gave me to participate in tournaments at the end of last season. Just when I got to New York and started practicing with the team where things were going pretty well for us, I got a call. Solo and Noone reached out to me and asked if I was interested in playing with them. It was a tough decision to make. My heart was tearing apart understanding that I would leave Fear, Moo, MoOz and Nine two days before the roster lock without a carry player, but at the same time, when the opportunity came, I felt as though I had to seize it. I've been an admirer of the VP guys since the beginning of their team, and getting a chance to play with them means the World to me. Once again, thanks to the team and J.Storm for taking care of me these last few months and I’m sorry for putting the team in this position.”

Roster:

  1. David Moo Hull

  2. Leon Nine Kirilin

  3. Braxton Brax Paulson

  4. Joel MoOz Mori Ozambela

  5. Clinton Fear Loomis

Coach: Jimmy DeMoN Ho
