North American organisation Team SoloMid have announced a new lineup which comprises disparate elements of various North American teams.
A new announcement by North American organisation Team SoloMid has disclosed the formation and signing of a Canadian-American roster comprising players who had recently departed various organisations in the scene.
Per the organisation’s own words, the roster is “based around 2 experienced players with multiple majors under their belt surrounded by 3 up and coming talents.”
The experienced players are likely taken to mean Kory “SEMPHIS” Friesen, who has been a part of premier North American lineups that attended past majors such as compLexity (in 2013) and Cloud 9 (2014), as well as Pujan “FNS” Mehta who was previously of the stable CLG lineup in 2015.
SEMPHIS and two old coL teammates are now a part of TSM
The young talent includes Timothy “autimatic” Ta, who played alongside Friesen in coL before the two left the roster together, and two former hotshots of Denial, Hunter “SicK” Mims and Daniel “vice” Kim.
Mims was also being tried out for compLexity following two of his current TSM teammates’ departures, but the player ultimately was not signed and left the squad (his departure, in addition to that of other tryout Ronnie “ryx” Bylicki, forced compLexity to withdraw from the MLG Americas Minor last weekend).
Finally, TSM have brought on board Soham “valens” Chowdhury, who retired in late 2015 but will now be a full-time coach for the team.
The organisation are also on the lookout for dedicated analysts and a manager for the team and mention the team moving into a gaming house in the near future.
TSM’s roster for 2016 is:
Kory “SEMPHIS” Friesen
Timothy “autimatic” Ta
Pujan “FNS” Mehta
Hunter “SicK” Mims
Daniel “vice” Kim
Soham “valens” Chowdhury (coach)
The new TSM lineup will debut this weekend at the online MLG Columbus 2016 last chance pre-qualifiers.
