First and foremost, we'd like to thank all of our fans for supporting GFE through the first phase of Heroes of the Storm HGC play. We have made a committment to our players and supporters to be the #1 premier team in North America and to be able to represent our region at the highest level of international play. Unfortunately, having missed the last two World Championships we have not lived up to that committment. There has become a need for change and we are announcing the following two changes within our Heroes of the Storm roster.

Jon "Equinox" Peterson will not be returning to the GFE team during Phase 2 of HGC. We would truly like to thank him for the time he has dedicated to the organization and his assistance with getting our Heroes of the Storm team to the Western Clash.

With heavy hearts, we are also announcing that Khalif "Khroen" Hashim will be stepping down to a substitute position while continuing to stream under the GFE banner. Khroen has been an essential part of the GFE HotS team from the beginning and a valued member of the Gale Force Family.

As a result, Gale Force will be looking for the best options to fill these integral positions and join the GFE family. To discuss this change to our roster, please head over to Reddit and share your thoughts with us here.
