The two seasoned veterans joined Misfits at the end of 2018 in hopes of forming a super team worthy of contending for an LEC title. Unfortunately tje roster was unable to find success in the Spring Split, and continues to struggle in summer.

Coach Hussain "Moose" Moosvi has said that he takes full responsibility for the team's failures, citing working with a 10-man roster as the biggest factor in their poor practice and preparation. After being benched last week, sOAZ made a string of tweets voicing his frustrations with the roster.

It's not currently known whether or not GorillA plans to retire from professional play, or continue his career in a different region. It's likely that sOAZ will continue to play, as he reassured fans that they will see him again soon.
