According to a report from Dexerto’s Jarek “DeKay” Lewis, Team SoloMid is weighing their options in the Counter-Strike scene. The organization that once fielded a majority of the current Astralis squad has made more than one foray into CS:GO, the most recent being one of drama.
The report states that sources close to the organization have been reaching out to players who are currently riding the pine (benched) from their current organizations.
The last time TSM was represented in the popular first-person shooter was January, 2017. This squad featured the now Team Liquid star of Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken, current compLexity AWPer Shahzeb “ShahZam” Khan, and Sean “seangares” Gares who has been spending time working as a member of various analyst desks as well as competing in the Mountain Dew League. This roster would be transferred to Misfits following issues between the players and management at TSM in regards to the Professional Esports Association.
Following their departure from the scene, TSM has remained mostly quit about the potential of making a return up until now.
Finn “karrigan” Andersen is certainly someone to keep an eye on as the Danish in-game leader was a member of the CS:GO squad that would become Astralis, the current number one team in the world giving him a history with TSM. karrigan currently plays with North American squad Envy on a trial basis while still being contraced to FaZe Clan. Things didn’t exactly end fantastically when the team and organization parted ways, however, so if any bad blood remains it would lessen the likelihood of that reunion.
This is a perfect chance for TSM to take a look at our list of notable free agents and start their research.
