Tempo Storm have announced that they have ventured into CS:GO by signing the Ascendancy roster.
Ascendancy are regarded as one of the up-and-coming teams in North America after cruising through the ESEA Premier division with a perfect 16-0 record, while in the playoffs they stand undefeated after beating Ace MSI in the semi-finals.
Their exploits have seemingly not gone unnoticed in the region as the players have agreed a deal with Tempo Storm, an organisation that also supports a HearthStone and a Heroes of the Storm division.

The team will make their first appearance for Tempo Storm on Thursday, against SYNRGY Gaming, in the grand final of the ESEA Premie playoffs.
"CS:GO is one of the fastest growing and promising games in esports," Tempo Storm CEO Andrey "Reynad" Yanyuk said in a statement.
"I have personally seen the CS:GO crowd at Dreamhacks double the amount of spectators that their stage is built for every time I've been there.
"The community strongly supports Counter Strike, and so do we.
"Tempo Storm is very lucky to have picked up the best up and coming team in North America, and I'm excited to watch the guys compete under our banner from now on."
Tempo Storm's CS:GO division consists of:
