Panda Global Signs Hotmeowth and RayC

Announcement: Panda Global Signs 2 New Hearthstone Players, Hotmeowth and RayC

Panda Global is excited to announce their pick-up of two accomplished Hearthstone players: Hotmeowth and RayC.

Hotmeowth closed out this past Winter Season in the #1 position with circuit points -- overtaking Amnesiac. He was the 2016 the North American Summer Champion and took 8th place at Blizzcon 2016. After such a successful year, Hotmeowth is prepped to keep that momentum going under the Panda Global banner.

RayC is no stranger to professional gaming, having previously competed in Pokemon TCG and MTG for over 7 years. He was #15 in circuit points for the Winter Season, despite health concerns restricting his travel to events. Now that RayC has recovered from a successful heart surgery, he has the opportunity to travel more frequently and is poised to threaten the upper echelons of professional Hearthstone. Panda Global is delighted to be a part of this promising player’s next chapter.

"Panda Global is proud to finally step into Hearthstone with players we think fit our brand perfectly. With RayC traveling to more events and Hotmeowth continuing his hot streak, we believe the Hearthstone Championship Tour will be incredibly exciting this year. Keep your eyes peeled for PG at Dreamhack and PAX One Nation Of Gamers events too!"

- Alan Bunney MD, Panda Global CEO
