PSISTORM Gaming is a Premier Team based in the United States, competing in StarCraft, Hearthstone, CS:GO and other games. For StarCraft, players include 2017 GSL Code S Season 2 Champion GuMiho, 2016 GSL Code S player and Winter 2016 Champion TRUE, WCS players EnDerr & PiLiPiLi, Dreamhack top 16 player RuFF, and other players mostly from North America.

With the catch phrase "Energizing The Game", PSISTORM GAMING, founded on the 27th of August, 2014, is a primarily Starcraft 2 organization composed of players who believe in good mannered play, enthusiastic sportsmanship, and above all, a love for the game. Originally part of KJ clan from karljay.com which has existed for over a decade from the days of BroodWar, the team has been rebranded as a new organization with sponsorship and big plans. The organization has hosted special showmatches with INcontroL, Hendralisk and EnDerr, as well casual tournaments with a significant prize pool for amateurs.

To start 2015, the team has grown to have 4 pro, 2 academy Grand Master players with all but 1 from the USA. The casual team consists of many players who organize tournaments, leagues and other events, being active differently with casting, writing articles, and other contributions. Other notable personalities joined the team, like Temp0 and Pughy.

In September and October the team has gotten international attention after signing TRUE to their pro team, to compete in the US for WCS at their game house in Virginia.

In February of 2017, the team acquired GuMiho gaining more attention within the scene.https://tl.net/forum/starcraft-2/518942-gumiho-joins-psistorm-gaming
