According to our sources, TSM is moving forward in its quest to build its roster. With XTQZZZ at the helm, players such as CYPHER, JACKZ & Interz are said to be on the verge of signing with the American organization.
Almost two weeks ago, we reported that Team SoloMid was scouting the market for a return to Counter-Strike, some 6 years after its departure. According to our sources, the search is progressing well, with a large number of players having been contacted.

Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam is the coach in charge of the project. After secretly helping Vitality since the start of the year, his mission ending after the Major victory in Paris, he is said to be motivated to take on a new project. A number of players are said to be close to joining the American organization.

The first notable name is Into The Breach's latest Major revelation, Englishman Cai "CYPHER" Watson, who is said to be one of Team SoloMid's first recruits for their return to Counter-Strike. ITB would thus be losing another player, as Sebastian "volt" Malos has just left the team, while GamerLegion is interested in him. It also seems that Adam "NEOFRAG" Zouhar is very close to signing with the British organization.

Another player close to joining the new TSM team is Audric "JACKZ" Jug. The Frenchman, free after his stint with HEET, will be back with XTQZZZ, with whom he played for G2 Esports. Finally, as leaked by harumi, Timofey "interz" Yakushin should also join this team, unlike Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi and Aurimas "Bymas" Pipiras who are not expected to join the European roster. Nor is Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, who is no longer part of the project.

TSM is expected to finalize these arrivals and is still actively searching for its IGL and sniper, although nothing has yet been fully decided. The new TSM line-up could look something like this:

uk Cai "CYPHER" Watson
fr Audric "JACKZ" Jug
ru Timofey "interz" Yakushin

fr Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam (coach)

And Into The Breach would look like :

uk Thomas "⁠Thomas⁠" Utting
nl Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel
pl Karol "⁠rallen⁠" Rodowicz
cz Adam "NEOFRAG" Zouhar
