Luminosity Gaming re-enters the Hearthstone scene after nine months by signing three of the most coveted free agents in the game.
Luminosity had previously been home to a number of leading European Hearthstone players including Stanislav Cifka and Nuno “Ignite” Pinho.
Their new signings could not have arrive at a better time as the date for BlizzCon creeps ever nearer. Keaton “Chakki” Gill, Frank “Fr0zen” Zhang, and Muzahidul “Muzzy” Islam will join up with the only remaining member of Luminosity’s old Hearth roster, Christopher “PHONETAP” Hunyh.
The trio ranked in the Top 10 currently in terms of points for the Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT), with Muzzy sitting at the top of the heap with 95 last call points.
But of the 3, Chakki has been one of the most decorated players in the North American, starting out on ESGN’s Fight Night with ManaGrind back in 2014. Chakki was later a part of Clarity Gaming and Team Coast before joining Dignitas.
There, Chakki took his first major title at DreamHack Austin in May this year. He also reached the HCT Spring Americas Championship, and finished in the top four of DreamHack Summer 2015 and the eSports Arena Invitational.
Previously a member of Team Hearthlytics before it disbanded, Fr0zen reached the final of DreamHack Summer 2016 before his defeat at the hands of Dima “Rdu” Radu.
Rounding out the trio is Muzzy, who had been generally a ladder player. He is currently top of the HCT Americas standings, and finished in the top eight of the now-defunct Hearthstone Pro League.
