Misfits confirm peacemaker move
Misfits have announced that Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu has been installed as coach of their Counter-Strike team on a permanent basis.
The Brazilian has taken up a permanent position in Misfits after spending the last month on trial, helping the team to qualify for DreamHack Tours.
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu began his coaching career with Games Academy/Tempo Storm before joining Team Liquid, whom he would help to reach the 2016 ESL One Cologne final.
peacemaker officially joins Misfits
After a six-month spell with Liquid, peacemaker left the organisation and was recruited by NRG as a general manager and coach, only to be dismissed just weeks later over "different visions for the future". In February, he joined OpTic on a trial basis, but he could not secure a permanent position as the team failed to impress at DreamHack Las Vegas at the IEM World Championship.
The announcement comes just days after Misfits formally confirmed the signings of French duo David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic and François "AmaNEk" Delaunay as replacements for Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken and Skyler "Relyks" Weaver.
"People that know me as a coach know that my motto is having a hard work environment and something that really drives me its new challenges," Tadeu told Misfits' website.
"When I first joined Immortals, everybody doubted our potential, same happened with Team Liquid and might happen once again with Misfits, but as long as I have enough time and stability to work I know what I’m capable of doing.
"I am really pumped to start coaching once again. Ben Spoont (CEO) together with all the management and players did their very best to make it happen and I’m really thankful on having this opportunity.
"I am confident that right now we have all the pieces needed to become a top team and for the first time in my coaching career I will have an actual IGL to share ideas and build a system with."
peacemaker will soon join up with the rest of the squad at Misfit's gaming house. Before attending DreamHack Tours, which will run from May 6-8, the team will undergo a bootcamp to prepare for the $100,000 tournament.
Misfits' roster consists of:
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)
Skyler "Relyks" Weaver (Backup)
