Stewie will likely be headed to SK Gaming. He tweeted earlier today in Portuguese, which could say enough. According to DeKay's sources, he also spoke with some of the team members on SK about the possibility of joining.

SK Gaming has made no official announcement about the acquisition of Stewie, but it is almost certain that he is taking his talents to the Brazilian squad.
