It’s official, Hearthstone has a professional player in the eSports scene. Razer announced the acquisition earlier in the day via their site, and if you don’t feel like checking out the whole article (which you should, because this super exciting) we have the important bits below:
“It is with great pleasure today that we welcome of one of the world’s top Hearthstone players, Jeffrey “Trump” Shih, to Team Razer’s roster of elite worldwide professional gamers.
The partnership signals the first official dedicated Hearthstone player to be taken on as a professional by an organization, and is aimed at both supporting and growing what is already an incredibly promising game and community.”
If you haven’t taken the time to visit Trump’s stream, I definitely recommend it. Not only can he play, he’s a great resource when it comes to learning about the game, given his tendency to explain the moves he makes. Trump is one of the players who will be participating in the upcoming Innkeeper’s Invitational Hearthstone tournament at BlizzCon.
Both this and the recent partnership between ManaGrind and MLG speak to just how positively things are trending for the competitive Hearthstone community.
