Storm is a North American Challenger team. They were previously known as Maelstrom Gaming.

History

2015 Preseason

Storm was initially formed in September 2014 to attempt to qualify for the 2015 spring LCS via the Expansion Tournament. However, because their top laner Lourlo would not be 17 years old in time, they decided to wait until he would be eligible to compete to attempt to qualify. In December, they competed in the NACL New Year's Kick-off Tournament with Nothinghere, Lattman, and Rockblood as subs for the purpose of the tournament. They made it to round 4 of the tournament in the winner's bracket along with Enemy eSports but never played their final matches.

2015 Season

Storm participated in the NACS Spring Qualifier in January 2015. They defeated Zenith eSports in the first round but then lost to Team Dragon Knights and did not qualify for the spring season. In April, they competed in the AlphaDraft Challenger League, replacing Escalate Legion Gaming, but later had to drop out of the tournament themselves partway through the third week after Babyeator left the team and they couldn't find a suitable replacement in time in accordance with ADCL's roster-change restrictions. They finished in eighth place with a 4-4 record. After the tournament, they reached the NACS Summer Qualifier with an 8th-place ladder seed under the name Cake Nuggets. They renamed to Maelstrom Gaming for the qualifier, but after a first-round victory over Aware Gaming, they lost to CLG Black and were eliminated.

2016 Preseason

Storm reformed for the NACS 2016 Spring Open Qualifier. They were eliminated in the first round of the bracket, losing 2-0 to CLG Black.
