After entering the Hearthstone space with Amaz, NRG are delighted to announce that we have added to our Hearthstone roster with the signing of the wonder kid player William 'Amnesiac' Barton. After finishing Rank 1 in the NA servers last season, he currently sits 12th in Hearthstone's Global Standings. More impressive? Will is just 15. An impressive 12 months for someone still in high school.
Having started playing Hearthstone at the age of 12, he has also coached a number of pro players, and has recently worked closely with NRG's other Hearthstone player, Jason 'Amaz' Chan. This should lead to some friendly competition in practice and at events!
“I have nothing but the highest respect for the values NRG holds as well as the success of their teams. I feel privileged to be joining such a great group of people and will do my best to represent the NRG family!"
William 'Amnesiac' Barton
Amnesiac's first event in NRG colours will be at the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships at Blizzcon. With a $1m prize pool and $250k 1st place prize, all eyes will be on the boy wonder to continue his rich vein of form.
“Will is the future of NRG; a talent that will only continue to grow as his game evolves. We’re psyched to be able to have him represent us in Hearthstone and can’t wait to see how he gets on!"
Gerard 'Atlas' Kelly, Co-Founder NRG
