Newly founded ManaLight has signed trio of Hearthstone free agents and is looking forward to announce it officially this week, the Daily Dot reports.

Swedish player Harald “Powder” Gimre is perhaps the most know name of the three. Known for his Insomnia54 victory and high finishes at multiple offline and online events including Assembly Summer, DreamHack Bucharest and Gfinity Spring II, Powder was until recently a member of Trig Esports, which he joined in March alongside Jan “Faramir” Engelmann and Daniel “Dtwo” Ikuta, pursuing an organization able to match their salary requests. Powder and his two team-mates stayed with Trig until last month, leaving amidst reports of unpaid salaries. Previously a member of teams DKMR and IHearthU, Powder is currently ranked top 16 in Europe and top 32 worldwide in the GosuRankings.

Powder will be joined in ManaLight by former Fnatic player Bertil “Frezzar” Fall and William “Modernleper” Bindloss, formerly of REG. Frezzar is best known for his top 8 placement at DreamHack Summer 2014 while Modernleper is a regular high-finisher in the local Insomnia tournaments and back-to-back winner of the DingIt Invitationals.

According to the Daily Dot, ManaLight are looking to hire more European players as well as an analyst.  Team’s official page suggests a line-up of six players, as well as a venturing into League of Legends.
