The Helsinki REDS has released the first Hearthstone player of its three-man Hearthstone lineup today: Sauli “zumpp” Rinta-aho, winner of the Dreamhack 2017 Winter Grand Prix tournament.

“With the new interesting changes coming to Hearthstone World Championship series for 2018, we are excited to be joining the game at this exact point in time. With the acquisition of this 3-man roster we have a realistic chance to be in the finals this year ” said general manager Christer Kasurinen on the organization’s move into the Hearthstone scene.

“Discussions with Sauli started a few months ago prior to the Dreamhack tournament and we finalized the deal in the week that followed.. suprisingly”, added Christer Kasurinen.

Stay tuned for the release of our other two Hearthstone players later this week!
