David ‘devoduvek’ Dobrossavljevic is a French esports player that hails from Paris. He is currently living in Irvin, California, training in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to compete at gaming events for Misfits. His gaming alias is made up of two words, ‘dev’ which came from his childhood nickname, devil and ‘oduvek’ was an inspiration from his native serbian language which means since always.
Outside of gaming, Dobrosavljevic loves to spend time visiting his family and friends back home. In his free time, he loves to go out with his friends, clubbing and sightseeing whenever the team needs to travel to compete in esports events. His loves of sports led him to work out with his team mates as well as watching basketball matches that help him understand strategy and timing.
Where it all began:
David’s first encounter with video games was Counter-Strike 1.6 in 2007. At the time he did not own computer so he would go to an Internet café to practice CS, where he played for fun, several hours a day. All he wanted to do was play the video game and become a better player.
When he decided to compete professionally in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, he bought his own computer in November 2014, to practice his fighting skills. He never stopped gaming since then and has raked up a total amount of $23K in winnings so far in his gaming career.
Misfits is a European gaming company that was launched in 2016 by the founders Ben Spoot, Laurie Silvers and Mitch Rubenstein. The organisation started out into the esports world acquiring the former Renegades League of Legends roster. Seeing the potential growth of video games, Misfits formed lineups in CS: GO, Overwatch, Hearthstone and Super Smash Bros.
In January 2017, Misfits acquire the former Team Solomid CS: GO roster, that saw Twistzz leave.
