Misfits add AmaNEk, devoduvek

Striker
April 14th, 2017 22:47

Following Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken's departure and Skyler "Relyks" Weaver having been moved to the bench, Misfits have confirmed the addition of David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic and François "AmaNEk" Delaunay to the starting roster.

Today's news confirmed the departure of Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken from Misfits, as the Canadian was transferred to Liquid to fill the last spot on their active roster, stepping into the shoes of Jacob "Pimp" Winneche.

Following a series of poor results, Misfits have also announced the benching of Skyler "Relyks" Weaver, who had been part of the squad for over seven months.


AmaNEk and devoduvek will move to Misfits' team house

Instead of the two players, the team formerly hailing from TSM brought in two French up-and-comers, as reported by Flickshot.fr last week, François "AmaNEk" Delaunay and David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic.

The two ex-Vexed players will be moving overseas to Misfits' team house to join up with most of the lineup.

The new roster's first offline appearance is set to be DreamHack Open Tours, where they'll fight against the likes of Natus Vincere and G2, from May 6-8.

Misfits' new roster is:

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

United States Skyler "Relyks" Weaver (Backup)

2017-04-14 22:52
these fellows have been rising pretty quickly through french cs. they're not proven quantities but they're both easily better than relyks.
2017-04-15 04:37
yah, tbh they definitely made the best out of a bad situation (losing twistzzz is such a huge downgrade).
2017-04-15 09:16
could be. But still is their english even proven? If I were misfits CEO I would seek talents from nordic countries, not only because of the ability to produce the talent but even from language sector it would be more better than FR.

Those French bots, with Zywoo, are the future of French scene. In fact, I'm stunned this little NA team signed them. Very good move for misfits.

2017-04-14 23:10
I'd like to see Relyks join a decent NA team. He's such a good individual player and I think he'll do well elsewhere.
2017-04-14 23:25
dude relyks is nutty, bad move to bench him..,

No, it's about the TEAM lineup change, and the team uses the NA flag, since the majority of the lineup is from USA.

HLTV uses the flag of the first word in the title. In this case "Misfits" is still a mostly USA team, so that flag is used

Events are exceptions. I think it was Striker that said those are the flag rules.
2017-04-15 19:09
As far as I understand it, Teams - line-up (majority) flag or alternative (see HR) Player - player flag Event - event location flag
2017-04-16 08:56
lol , why bench relyks ?
2017-04-14 23:50
This isn't going to work, the language and culture barrier will be too big to handle. French people just can't English it's a fact. They're too busy thinking their own country, language, and culture are so superior to any other that it's not even worth learning the vehicular language.

they are good players, but ready for professional play ? not likely yet. These are premier players at best. Which is fine, if they want to spend a lot of time figuring out setups and starting fresh. This is not the kind of move you make when you want direct fast results, more of a potential move, which when youre bringing in people from a different continent, very risky. I have no expectations for this lineup but I hope they surprise :)
2017-04-15 04:00

Fuck Misfits they'd rather sign EU nobodies that can become talent rather than NA nobodies that can become talent. I thought they could be something great it seems I was wrong.
