Sources: TSM exploring options in CS:GO

North American esports organization Team SoloMid (TSM) is exploring the option to re-enter professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, according to multiple sources close to the organization.

Members of TSM have reached out to multiple players who are currently benched on their respective rosters, said one source. 

TSM has not fielded a team in professional Counter-Strike since January of 2017, when they transferred their players to the Misfits organization. On that roster was Team Liquid superstar Russel 'Twistzz' Van Dulken and other well-known North American players like compLexity's Shahzeeb 'ShahZaM' Khan.

Sean 'sgares' Gares famously joined the TSM roster a week before the transfer to Misfits. The quick transfer was largely due to a falling out with TSM management following information that had surfaced about the Professional Esports Association (PEA). 

PEA was expecting players to play their online league exclusively and withdraw from ESL Pro League. Prior to a report from Slingshot Esports, almost none of the players involved were aware of this expectation.  

The strongest finish for TSM's North American CS:GO team came at the ECS Season 1 Finals, where they made it to the semi-finals under the leadership of Pujan 'FNS' Mehta.

Prior to the North American roster, TSM had employed the current core of Astralis for most of 2015. The roster contained Finn 'Karrigan' Andersen, René 'cajunb' Borg, Nicolai 'device' Reedtz, Andreas 'Xyp9x' Højsleth and Peter 'dupreeh' Rasmussen. 

During their time with the organization, the Danes won five premier international tournaments before going on to join the Astralis organization after a brief stint playing under the guise of 'Team Questionmark'.
