The Misfits roster has been locked in ahead of Overwatch Contenders.

After coming in eighth in the tournament's season zero Misfits looked to restructure its roster, both for the upcoming Overwatch League and Overwatch Contenders. The team sent tank player Jonathan "Reinforce" Larsson to the bench, with Andreas "Nevix" Karlsson opting to join Cloud9's new European team.

Flex support player Aleksi "Zuppehw" Kuntsi was confirmed earlier this week, though now the whole roster is official—at least, for Overwatch Contenders. Johan "CWoosH" Klingestedt will step in on tank, while Andreas "Logix" Berghmans will take to the DPS role.

Misfits no longer fields a fully Swedish roster, as Zuppehw is from Finland, while Logix hails from Belgium. The four remaining original players, Sebastian "Zebbosai" Olsson, Tim "Manneten" Bylund, Kevyn "TviQ" Lindström, and Vytis "Mineral" Lasaitis, remain Swedish.

Misfits will face the new Cloud9 roster, formerly known as Laser Kittenz, when Overwatch Contenders begins on Aug. 19 at 1pm ET. A full schedule of events was just released by Blizzard.

It's unclear at this time whether this roster will operate as the Misfits Overwatch League team, as Overwatch Contenders will likely act as a trial for the team's success. Misfits CEO Ben Spoont is one of the Overwatch League's initial seven owners announced in July. The organization will take the Miami-Orlando slot. Overwatch League now has a confirmed nine teams across the world.
