Andrey "Reynad" Yanyuk is a former professional Hearthstone player, a streamer on Twitch, and the founder, owner, and CEO of Tempo Storm. He was listed in Forbes magazine’s 2017 “30 under 30” column[1] and has accrued more than 37 million views on his YouTube channel.

Overview[edit]

Reynad is widely regarded as one of the progenitors of strategy-game streaming on Twitch, first making his name in Magic: The Gathering before transitioning to Hearthstone. After the transition, Reynad popularized new archetypes such as Zoo Warlock and Aggro Warrior. During his pro Hearthstone career, Reynad achieved multiple top finishes in premier Hearthstone tournaments, including DreamHack Austin 2017, the OGN Hearthstone Seoul Cup, and the Battle of the Best.

At the apex of his Hearthstone career, Reynad won Blizzard’s first-ever Arena tournament, besting the likes of Amaz, TidesofTime, Trump, and MaSsan.

Since stepping away from the Hearthstone professional scene, Reynad now works full-time as the CEO of Tempo Storm, producing the original game show HIVEMIND for Twitch and developing Tempo’s strategy game, The Bazaar.

Biography[edit]

2012[edit]

Reynad started streaming full-time on Twitch in 2012, establishing himself as a significant name in the burgeoning online Magic: The Gathering scene. However, in 2013, Reynad announced his retirement from competitive MTG and transitioned into full-time Hearthstone competition and content creation.

2014[edit]

In 2014, Reynad founded Tempo Storm as a professional esports and gaming organization. Teams under the Tempo banner went on to compete at the highest levels in several different notable titles: Hearthstone, MTG, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Call of Duty Mobile, Super Smash Bros., and Rainbow Six: Siege, among others.

2018[edit]

In 2018, Reynad announced that he’d be stepping away from Hearthstone content creation to focus on Tempo Storm operations and the development of his own strategy game title, The Bazaar. He also unveiled the release of an Indiegogo campaign to finance the game, which was followed by a $3.3M funding round in 2020 and a Republic.co public investment campaign in 2021.
