AmaNEk & devoduvek say no to nV.Academy in favor of Misfits!
Several weeks ago, David 'devoduvek' Dobrosavljevic was bought out of Vexed by EnVyUs who wanted to reintroduce their lineup by integrating young players. devoduvek was one of them but he was quickly sidelined when Adil 'Scream' Benrlitom changed his mind and in favor of Alexandre 'xms' Forté who was not initially supposed to be part of the adventure.
Following devoduvek's departure, Vexed has encountered internal issues and has decided to let go of his partner, François 'AmaNEk' Delaunay as well as another player who has proved himself at a high level recently, Ali 'hAdji' Haïnouss. These three were the core of a new project with EnVyUs, as well as in search of two new players in order to integrate a potential Academy lineup.
As we explained it during our podcast (The Freezetime #1) last week, the two last members of this project come from another lower tier team, Tortues Ninja (Ninja Turtles in English). Despite good results, the opportunity to join a reputable organization has interfered with the TN Project which was clearly promising, with good victories in France with online cups, the Epsilan #14 but also in Europe with Assembly Winter 2017. Lambert 'Lambert' Prigent and Julien 'PetiSkel' Marcantoni are thus completing this promising team.

As the announcement of this lineup was beginning to drag out, forcing the three core players to play as a mix under the RANKS tag, most of the details were finally settled and everything was ready for last Saturday April 1st. But a last minute turnaround was not expected. The American organization Misfits had contacted the AmaNEk/devoduvek duo to recruit them and complete their lineup.
Under the leadership of Sean 'sgares' Gares and alongside Shahzeeb 'ShahZaM' Khan and the young Hunter 'SicK' Mims, the two players, after careful consideration, will attempt an overseas adventure and reach an eSport and financial milestone with a salary of several thousand euros. While they had initially chosen nV.Academy, it's Misfits that has taken a lead in the negotiations. The nV Academy project is in stand-by for now.
In addition to David 'Xp3' Garrido, a new batch of French players will thus cross the ocean to take on a great challenge and will settle in California. Misfits will let go of Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken, who is apparently close to joining Team Liquid, as well as Skyler "Relyks" Weaver, who is set aside, and also awaits the official arrival of the Brazilian Luis 'peacemaker' Tadeau as their coach.
Misfits will now be represented by :
Sean "sgares" Gares
Shahzeeb "ShahZaM" Khan
Hunter "SicK" Mims
David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic
François "AmaNEk" Delaunay
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)
