Team SoloMid is finalizing a deal to bring Immortals jungler Joshua "Dardoch" Hartnett to the team’s starting roster for 2020.
Dardoch marks what is likely to be the final piece in the TSM puzzle with deals for AD carry Kasper "Kobbe" Kobberup, support Vincent "Biofrost" Wang and signing mid laner Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg up to a new deal. TSM will likely keep hold of Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham for its Academy team, though Immortals has reportedly shown interest.
TSM was reportedly one of the teams after Jake "Xmithie" Puchero, who ultimately ended up signing for Immortals. Xmithie’s desire to return to the squad he once played for was ultimately the deciding factor in his decision to sign for Immortals.
TSM will go into the 2020 season with a finalized roster of:
Top - Broken Blade
Jungle - Dardoch
Mid - Bjergsen
ADC - Kobbe
Support - Biofrost
With its 2020 roster now in place, TSM looks to have a deadly team as they head into the new season. This comes after having a poor showing in 2019. With the addition of import talent, one of the league’s most consistent mid laners and Dardoch - who spent most of his early days in the LCS as one of the most coveted talents in the league - TSM is looking much stronger already.
Dardoch faced criticism in his days at Team Liquid and Immortals, and he was accused of being difficult to work with by some former teammates.
