Reynad on turning away from Hearthstone to make his own dream card game

I last spoke to Andrey “Reynad” Yanyuk in early 2017 for an interview about how the industrious 26 year-old was doubling down on his role as CEO of Tempo Storm, the esports org he founded, and slowly extricating himself from the Hearthstone scene. It’s been almost a year since then, and the divorce is nearly complete. Today, Reynad has embraced the life of a globe-trotting IRL streamer—putting his camera to good use as he gets his guts punched out in a graffiti-stained Filipino boxing gym, or BMXs across Chilean rooftops, or skydives above Sydney, Australia.

It’s an interesting pivot for Reynad, a guy long considered to be Hearthstone’s saltiest streamer, (which is saying something, considering the competition.) The man’s signature move was the long, baneful glance he’d give to the chat box after taking a bad beat, itching to hand out a permaban, or better yet a lengthy lecture to those watching, soundtracked by some furious mouse clicking.
