After making a big move to acquire talented AD carry Kobbe from North America, Misfits Gaming has decided to promote support Mads “Doss” Schwartz from the Academy team to the starting LEC lineup, the organization announced today.

Last season, Misfits surprised European League of Legends fans by qualifying for the LEC Spring Playoffs with a plethora of rookies. They finished the regular season in fifth place with a 10-8 record, edging out Rogue by one game.

But the team also lacked the firepower necessary to push through the postseason. Rogue got their revenge on Misfits by eliminating them in the first round of the losers bracket.

As a result, Misfits has now reformed its bottom lane with Kobbe, Denyk, and Doss as a possible substitute for the team. Doss only has a bit of LEC stage experience, but he’s shown enough potential to get the call up from the coaching staff.

During the 2020 LFL Spring Split, Doss and Misfits Premier finished in second place during the regular season just behind LDLC OL. They ended up losing to GamersOrigin in the third round of the Spring Split playoffs in four games, though.

With Doublelift’s controversial return to TSM, ADC Kobbe moved back to Europe, and joined the LEC’s Misfits Gaming for the Summer Split. Former Misfits Premier support player Mads “Doss” Schwartz will also be stepping up the starting roster.

Team Solo Mid has a lot of internal issues leaked on stream. Their former jungler, DardochWhile Dardoch didn’t have the greatest split, he was a reliable jungle so it’s surprising that TSM decided to replace him just after one split. It’s surprising TSM keeps replacing their members after just one split. With this progress it’s unlikely we will get to see TSM participate at international tournaments since other teams keep their members and develop them instead of throwing them out after one split. It’s interesting to see how will TSM fare after all this drama in LCS’s Summer Split, considering the hatred from the community. With the split a month away from now, we might get to see the kitchen of other teams as well so stay tuned for more information in the next days.

His promotion hints that he and Petr “denyk” Haramach might share time with Kobbe this summer. This could be a decent way to see which support works best with the team, while also keeping their support options flexible throughout the split.
