Team SoloMid will be forced to field a replacement for Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken at ELAGUE Season 1, as the 16-year-old does not meet the league's requirement that all players must be aged 17 or over.

Since adding Twistzz to the team, TSM have stepped up from a series of 5th-8th place finishes. The team recently qualified for the Americas Minor Championship with a 2-0 win over Team Prospects in the closed qualifier and finished second in the third CEVO Season 9 Professional North America qualifier.

TSM have not made an announcement about who will be filling the fifth spot for the remainder of ELEAGUE. Their group for the regular season has also not been announced yet. ELEAGUE begins at 12 p.m. ET on Tuesday with Luminosity Gaming vs. Renegades.
