TSM returns to Counter-Strike with JACKZ and valde

Seven years after their departure from CS:GO, the team formerly known as Team SoloMid is back.

With legendary players such as Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz, Finn "karrigan" Andersen, and Sean "seang@res" Gares (albeit a very short stint) on their previous rosters, Team SoloMid or TSM has set their mark on the world of CS:GO. But since TSM's departure from Counter-Strike in late 2016, there has been silence surrounding the American Organization that has been active in multiple other esport-titles.

Yesterday a new generation of TSM players were announced on X.

The new international team will consist of a mixture of experience and youth. Audric "⁠JACKZ⁠" Jug and Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså will spearhead the project with the two 20-year-olds Cai "⁠CYPHER⁠" Watson and Mădălin-Andrei "⁠MoDo⁠" Mirea to provide additional firepower. CYPHER makes the move from Into the Breach, where he was one of the most exciting prospects coming out of the Major in Paris, where the British team surprised everyone by reaching the playoffs. Romanian AWP'er MoDo is set to make his debut in the Tier-1 scene after having played for Nexus since December 2022. Lastly, the former Cloud9 player Timofey "⁠interz⁠" Yakushin gets a chance to prove his worth on an international team.
