Luminosity Gaming is proud to announce the addition of Johan “Darkwonyx” Hansson to the Hearthstone division. Hansson is 23 from Göteborg, Sweden and has been playing Hearthstone since the closed beta. He was a Swedish chess Champion at age 16 and has routinely used those skills to out-think and out-build his opponents. He is one of the most creative deck builders to have helped shape the Hearthstone scene, known for being one of the pioneers of control Warrior in the early days of the game. Winning the SCAN Hearthstone Invitational #1 and placing high in the ESL Hearthstone Legendary Series Season 1, WCA 2014 and WEC 2014, he is no stranger to the big stage.

 

Johan had this to say,

“I am excited to be with a big organization with big goals. It is how you get to the top. You don’t get to the top just being a player, you need a strong organization behind you and you behind them. It will also be great to work out with my new teammates, especially with all the changes coming to the game.”

With that news, it is with a heavy heart that we have officially released StanCifka and ignite from the team.  Stancifka had an amazing year in Hearthstone winning both the Starladder Starseries Season 1 and The PGL Spring Tavern tales. Combined with several top placements in other events, he solidified his status as one of the best players on the scene while under the Luminosity brand.  We have no doubt he will continue his climb to the top. Ignite made a name for himself grinding through every communal cup he could, to become a known player. This earned him the respect of many players and organizers throughout the scene.  We wish them both the best in their future endeavours.  Management had this to say regardding the roster change: 


" StanCifka's player contract was up for renewal and we mutually decided that it would be best for Stan to seek new opportunities, and not renew our contract.  For StanCifka, this means he will have the freedom to seek a max deal that he surely deserves.  StanCifka was an absolute professional while with the team, and we will forever remain a fan of his.  Ignite will also be departing from the team and we wish him all the best as well.  Please aslo join us in welcoming a familair face, Darkwonyx, to the team.
