Khalil “b1ologic” Pleasis revealed on social media that he would be parting ways with Team SoloMid’s Rainbow Six Siege team. Some have speculated that this was due to TSM’s performance during their last tournament, but the player says it was due to personal reasons.
“I know a lot of you may know and assume things but officially I have left the TSM rainbow 6 team,” wrote b1ologic. “I have a lot of personal things going on right now so I need to step away from the competitive life for now. Thank you to all who reached out with kind words but I will be back.”
Khalil “b1ologic” Pleasis is an American Rainbow Six Siege player. He started his competitive career in 2017 with the since-disbanded 1nFamy esports organization. Afterward, he played for organizations like Vertical Gaming, Most Wanted Esports, Excelerate Gaming, and most recently Team SoloMid. He achieved first-place finishes in the Challenger League for North America on both 1nFamy and Excelerate Gaming.
After Excelerate’s roster qualified for Season 9’s Pro League, the roster was acquired by TSM. The team then went on to place 5 – 8 at 2019’s DreamHack Valencia. The TSM roster qualified for 2019’s Six Major by emerging victorious against Spacestation Gaming but fell to G2 Esports at 2019’s Six Major Raleigh. They ended off the second major Rainbow Six tournament of 2019 in 5 – 8, tied with Giants Gaming, Spacestation Gaming, and FaZe Clan. G2 Esports later went on to play in the finals, where they lost to Russian organization Team Empire.
Team SoloMid currently sits in the last place in 2019’s Pro League Season 10 for North America. The team is tied with the Susquehanna Soniqs with 1 win, 1 tie, and 5 losses. There are several more weeks of matches left. However, if the organization does not achieve better results, it is likely they will be sent to relegation. With b1ologic’s absence, TSM has to make use of the empty slot to win more matches.
TSM play their next match on September 16 in Playday 8 of the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League’s Season 10. Can TSM make some roster changes before their next matches to save themselves?
