VGJ.Storm is not J.Storm as it returns to the Pro Circuit with a newly signed roster
When the Team VGJ announced the departure of its North American VGJ.Storm roster in the offseason, it was not clear exactly what the future would hold for the team heading into the 2018-2019 season. The new rules implemented by Valve led many to believe that the organization would split its Chinese and North American ventures, and today it appears that this will be the case. Team VGJ announced that its partnership with the Vici Gaming organization has come to an end, officially disbanding the VGJ.Thunder team while rebranding VGJ.Storm to J.Storm. In addition to the change in its organization’s name, there was also a roster announcement for the newly formed J.Storm, as the organization has officially signed the roster of Marchoutofarmy.
The new J.Storm is coming off of a successful run in The Kuala Lumpur Major North America Qualifier, in which the team placed 3rd overall to secure itself a place at the first Major of the new Pro Circuit season. The move to the J.Storm organization has been made with the entirety of its lineup, meaning the squad will be undergoing no roster changes in the process. While the team will have to wait until November at the Major to take the Pro Circuit stage, the newly christened J.Storm will be in action far sooner than that. The team’s announcement of its new name and new roster also came with the revelation that the squad will be playing in the Qualifiers for ESL One Hamburg that are set to begin on September 29.
The roster of J.Storm following the signing of Marchoutofarmy:
David “Moo” Hull (Carry)
Jonathan “Bryle” De Guia (Mid)
Lee “Forev” Sang-don (Offlane)
Milan “MiLAN” Kozomara (Support)
Park “March” Tae-won (Support, Captain)
Chandler Dent (General Manager)
