Misfits Rocket League Roster
- Ario “arju” Berdin
- Mitchel “Mittaen” Driessen
- Kurtis “Kash” Cannon
The Misfits roster aren’t strangers in the professional Rocket League scene. Even though none of them have played in the RLCS World Championship before today, they have shown promise in RLCS Season X.
History of the roster
Mittaen and arju joined the Monkeys in May this year with Kash joining later in August. But even before representing the Monkeys, Mittaen and arju played together for Galaxy Racer. Together the two of them finished third-fourth in last year’s Rocket League Fall Major. However, they were dropped after missing out on the Spring Major finishing ninth in the European rankings. During this time, Kash was playing for Rix.GG. The trio was coached by ANDYTHEMANDY when they were playing for the Monkeys.
