Approximately six months after releasing their former CS:GO roster, Tempo Storm has announced that they are returning to the scene with the acquisition of Games Academy.

The Brazilian team was first organized back in 2014. Shortly after its formation, they underwent a number of roster changes that resulted in players such as Lincoln “fnx” Lau and coach Wilton “zews” Prado departing the team for Luminosity Gaming. The current lineup was formed in late November of 2015, and Tempo Storm has made it clear that the entire roster will be remaining together as a team.

“We’re extremely excited to be part of this new Tempo Storm era. It’s been quite few months since they’ve had a CS:GO team and we are extremely honored that they choose to give an opportunity for an original Brazilian team to represent them. Even though we changed our lineup recently, things are going great and our atmosphere within the team is amazing. We are going to be in top form for the upcoming months and we can’t wait to bring our first “storm” at the next CS:GO event.”
-Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu, Team Coach

The former Games Academy roster has had a relatively unremarkable run since their current lineup was organized. While they managed to place first at the MLG Columbus 2015 – Americas Last Chance Qualifier, they struggled in other qualifiers and minors. Despite this, the community still considers them as a team with the potential to make a huge impact on the CS:GO scene. They will be the only South American team at the MLG Columbus Qualifiers, so they will have many eyes on them as they represent the greatly underrepresented South American Counter-Strike community.

The current Tempo Storm CS:GO roster is as follows:

Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu – Team Coach
Henrique “hen1” Teles – In-Game Leader
Ricardo “boltz” Prass
João “felps” Vasconcellos
Lucas “lucas1” Teles
Gustavo “SHOOWTiME” Gonçalves
