Team LDLC have formed a new CS:GO roster consisting of former LDLC White and LDLC Blue players, as well as former G2 Esports in-game leader Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans, according to a report by VaKarM.net.
LDLC dropped both their LDLC White and LDLC Blue rosters last week in the wake of departures by Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon, who went to nV, and Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro, who joined G2 Esports.
According to VaKarM, LDLC were looking to form a new team with Mathieu “Maniac” Quiquerez, Team EnVyUs’ coach, but that was before Ex6TenZ left G2 to become a free agent. LDLC reportedly abandoned the deal with Maniac and shifted their focus to Ex6TenZ, giving him full control of the roster.
Maniac was a former teammate of Ex6TenZ on Titan, but he was removed from the team due to poor performance. According to VaKarM, despite earlier negotiations between LDLC and Maniac, Ex6TenZ decided not to add the Swiss player to LDLC’s new roster because of their “chaotic ending” when they were on Titan.
Joining the new LDLC roster will be Matthieu “matHEND” Roquigny and Antoine “to1nou” Pirard, two long-standing members of LDLC White, and Charbel "BouLy" Naoum, from LDLC Blue. All three have been with the org for over year.
Simon “Fuks” Florysiak is the only LDLC White name not on the new LDLC roster who hasn’t found a new team. Instead, the team’s fifth will be Alex "ALEX" McMeekin. He has less of a profile than his peers, having played previously for Platinum-Servers, a team that was later bought out and became LDLC White.
The fate of BouLy’s former LDLC Blue teammates — David "HEdm" Thalien, Guillaume "XpG" Veron, Julien "PetitSkel" Marcantoni and Younes "YOUNS" Ait-lalla — is unknown.
According to the report, Team LDLC's new roster looks as follows:
- Kevin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans
- Matthieu "matHEND" Roquigny
- Antoine "to1nou" Pirard
- Charbel "BouLy" Naoum
- Alex "ALEX" McMeekin
