Reinforce to leave Misfits Overwatch roster

Jonathan “Reinforce” Larsson announced Sunday he is no longer a part of Misfits‘ active Overwatch roster and has received permission to look for a new team.

Reinforce played a crucial role in building the Misfits roster since moving there after spending time with Rogue. He writes that he drafted a shortlist of free agents that the organization could snap up for a rebuild, and said that “some of what I heavily vouched for came to fruition.”

The tank player wrote that he came to the decision after he was notified that he would become as a substitute for the team, but he also clarified that the split was amicable.

“To all the guys in the new Misfits roster, best of luck. I hold no grudges nor do I feel unfairly treated,” he wrote. “The Misfits management (Ben, Joe “Innerflame” and Cyril “WindZ”) has been supportive in all of this and ensured me they’d be there helping me regardless of my decision.”

Reinforce will compete in the playoffs of the Overwatch World Cup at Blizzcon as a member of Team Sweden, as the team placed first in Group C. Considered one of the best players in Sweden, he was chosen as one of the country’s representatives along with three other members of Misfits, Kevyn “TviQ” Lindström, Tim “Manneten” Bylund, and Sebastian “Zebbosai” Olsson. Reinforce has also been an outspoken player of sorts, as he took a stand last month against perceived imbalance of the Overwatch schedule.
