Former TSM Counter-Strike Roster Moves Under Misfits

By   /   Jan 16, 2017

Team SoloMid released its remaining Counter-Strike players on the weekend, after which Misfits moved in to quickly acquire the roster for itself.

“This decision was made after the relationships between the organization and the remaining players continued to deteriorate over the past few weeks, partly in due to the remaining squad’s explicit desire to continue playing together with sgares,” noted Team SoloMid in an announcement.

Sean “sgares” Gares, Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan, Hunter “SicK” Mims, Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken and Skyler “Relyks” Weaver will continue to play together under the new colors of Misfits and are looking forward to competing in ESL Pro League Season 4 after their recent qualification.

About three weeks ago, Team SoloMid forcefully removed Sean “sgares” Gares from its Counter-Strike roster due to disagreements over matters involving the Professional Esports Association (PEA).

The management intended to have all PEA teams collectively withdraw from the ESL Pro League without notifying the players. Gares strongly opposed the exclusivity movement through an open letter which didn’t sit well with Team SoloMid owner Andy “Reginald” Dinh who believed that Gares had hurt the TSM brand.

Following his removal, the remaining four players on the team made it clear that they would only resume play with their leader. As a result, TSM was left with little choice but to completely part ways with the roster. According to reports, the roster acquisition was the result of an agreement between the two organizations that was brokered by Chris “HuK” Loranger.

Last week, PEA shuttered its Counter-Strike league after the players voted to continue playing in the ESL Pro League. The association’s league was supposed to take place during the summers this year.
