Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu will remain the coach of North American Counter-Strike team Misfits, the organization confirmed Tuesday. Peacemaker had recently been with the team on a trial basis, as he was seen coaching Misfits during a tournament last month.
Peacemaker most recently had a short-term stint with OpTic Gaming, in which the players chose to continue without his services.
“People that know me as a coach know that my motto is having a hard work environment and something that really drives me (is) new challenges,” Peacemaker said in a statement to Slingshot. “When I first joined Immortals, everybody doubted our potential, same happened with Team Liquid and might happen once again with Misfits, but as long as I have enough time and stability to work, I know what I’m capable of doing.”
Peacemaker has had a whirlwind few months. After leaving Liquid in October, he joined NRG a month later but left the organization after less than a month. He then joined OpTic in February.
Misfits, meanwhile, have endured its own slew of roster changes. The team signed David “devoduvek” Dobrosavljevic and François “AmaNEk” Delaunay, while Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken left for Team Liquid and Skyler “Relyks” Weaver was benched.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a great mind like Luis,” Misfits captain Sean Gares said in a statement. “I’ve admired Luis’ structure/style since arriving in North America and think he can bring tons of new ideas to the team.”
