On January 31, Hooked eSports announced the signing of veteran gamer Michael “Malice” Smith-Grant, who will represent the brand in two games and join their Stream Team. The multi-hyphenate Smith-Grant will represent the team in Hearthstone and Dragon Ball Z.
In the official press release, Smith-Grant stated, “I’ve always had a knack for creating content whether it was on YouTube or Twitch and I want to also take that to the next level. With Hooked, I look to represent the brand in both a competitive and content creator capacity.” Stream team events began just days after his formal announcement, with tweets regularly going out when he is broadcasting live. Congratulations, Michael!
