Not even their final form: J.Storm acquires MOOA stack

Formerly known as VGJ.Storm, J.Storm has launched a rebranding campaign which entails signing the MOOA stack.
Yesterday evening, J.Storm released a statement on the official team website to announce a number of changes.
Valve’s new rule, which prohibits any single organization from registering multiple teams to compete at The International or any qualifiers therein, has forced several organizations to make changes. VGJ.Storm was launched as part of a strategic partnership with Vici Gaming, a deal which conflicts with the new rule. Ipso facto, the partnership was terminated along with VGJ.Thunder.
J.Storm’s first order of business was to adopt a new DOTA 2 team. They did so by signing the MOOA Stack.
For those who followed the Kuala Lumpur Major, the name should sound familiar as they were one of three North American teams to qualify for the event. J.Storm’s General Manager, Chandler Dent, released a statement as well:
“We are thrilled to welcome Moo, Bryle, FoREv, MiLAN and March to J.Storm. We are focused on building off of the success we had last year as a new org and welcoming in a new set of players. We have a talented stack of five quality players that are hungry to compete at the highest level. Following the team’s successful run in the Kuala Lumpur Major Qualifiers, we’re confident that we’ll only improve as we grow together and continue to build our fan base in North America.”
The J.Storm roster will play under the new banner for the first time this weekend for ESL One Hamburg Qualifiers.
