The two French players are set to replace Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken and Skyler "Relyks" Weaver on the North American organization. The former is in talks with Team Liquid to fill the voice left behind by Jacob "Pimp" Winneche. No word yet on the future of former Selfless and ex-Team SoloMid player Relyks.

"Replacing a player of Pimp’s caliber is not easy, but we are working hard to find someone that will enable our CS:GO squad to compete at the highest international level - our coaching staff and management is diligently pursuing top tier talent, and we will update the CSGO community as our search progresses," Victor "Nazgul" Goossens said upon the announcement that Pimp would be departing. It seems that the pursuit of top-tier talent has led Liquid to Twistzz.

devoduvek was part of the recent French shuffle that saw the formation of the G2 super team, however, he was originally signed to the new Team EnVyUs roster. Shortly after that announcement, EnVyUs decided to take a different route when it signed Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom following failed talks between the player and FaZe Clan.

AmaNEk is a past teammate of devoduvek, having been a duo previously on squads such as Red Instinct, Platinum Esport, and Vexed Gaming.

The players will be joining up with long-time in-game leader Sean "seangares" Gares who linked up with the roster under TSM before things fell through and the roster moved over to Misfits shortly after.

Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan will continue as the teams main AWP player. ShahZaM's played helped Misfits secure its spot at the DreamHack Tours event, having an insane game against NRG Esports.

Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu recently stepped in to help the squads performance as coach of the CS:GO division although his impact has yet to be evaluated.

Potential Misfits CS:GO roster:

Sean "seang@res" Gares
Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan
Hunter "SicK" Mims
David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic
François "AmaNEk" Delaunay
