compLexity Gaming has been a part of the Hearthstone competitive scene for nearly a year now, beginning with David ‘Dog’ Caero as the founding father of the division. Today we are proud to add a new face to the roster of coL.HS. In the spirit of supporting not only established players, but also young and emerging talents, we found recruiting Robert ‘Waffster’ Myers to be a rather easy decision.
The talented player from California is one of the hidden prodigies in the North American scene, showing off his talent when he recently came close to a breakthrough in the ONOG Summer Circuit by GEICO. A Grand Finals appearance in his first big tournament turned some heads, now he is ready for bigger challenges under the umbrella of compLexity Gaming.
To the team he is no stranger, as he is a long-time practice partner of Dog, as well as current member of practice groups with superjj and TheJordude. When looking to add talent to a roster, synergy with existing members is key, and in this regard Waffster’s addition may have even been overdue.
Waffster is currently looking to finish high school, while focusing on his Hearthstone career. With compLexity at his side he plans to not just become more known in the scene through tournament participation, but also extend his streaming presence. The player currently ranked in the Top 10 of the North American ladder is the full package. Quick and successful runs through the ladder, specializing in Rogue and Warrior, as well as stellar performances in open tournaments make him a force to be reckoned with in the future.
“Taking Waffster in was ultimately a very easy decision. He is smart, poised and incredibly motivated to make it into the scene. The eagerness he expressed to get the coL deal started right away, his good performances in the spotlight and the rave reviews of our other three players convinced me just as quickly as he did in the talks we had.”, noted Hearthstone manager Sören ‘Fantasy’ Vendsahm on the new player.
“It is truly a dream come true. Just a few weeks ago I wasn’t really known. Now I have the chance to prove myself on the big stage with a great team backing me,” the new cardslinger of compLexity Gaming said. “It’s a dream come true, but not the end of the road. I am now more motivated than ever to make it into the scene and repay compLexity Gaming for the trust they put in me.”
Look out for Waffster’s streams in the future, as well as his appearances in open competitions across the Hearthstone scene. The main focus at the moment will be the ONOG seed at PAX, but other open tournaments to get practice and make the breakthrough are on the horizon as well. Extend a warm welcome to the newest member of the red and black brand, tweet at him @coL_Waffster and say hi in his Twitch chat at twitch.tv/waffster .
