Tainted Minds underwent serious changes since the player break, first adding Simon "Sico" Williams and Mike "ap0c" Aliferis and then finalizing their roster with tucks. However, their latest recruit found himself on the chopping block after less than a month, as Tainted Minds pounced on the opportunity to acquire USTILO.
The 25-year-old said the following in the announcement of the news:
"Today i'm officially a part of Tainted Minds! I'm super keen to get started ahead of all the Minor qualifiers and competitions coming up. There were a lot of deciding factors of why I joined TM, firstly I by far see the most potential in this lineup than any other Australian team along with me knowing a few of the guys personally pretty well, being homesick after been away so long, trying to regain my confidence, and of course the situation I am in with dad it made it a pretty simple choice! I look forward to competing under the TM banner and with my new teammates and hopefully make the TM and Australian fans proud! Lobster out <3" - USTILO
"Having Karlo fill out the roster in time for the Minor is like having Christmas come early. Karlo is a hard working individual who paved his own way into the scene and took it to great heights with Renegades off the back of his work ethic and drive to succeed. It brings me great pleasure to finally be able to work with Karlo from a coaching perspective, as I have always admired him as a team mate and player since our short time together in 2015. Although the French beat the Croatians severely in the World Cup I’m sure it will not hinder the ability to provide our fans with the strongest iteration of Tainted Minds to date. Welcome on board Karlo!" - ferg
