In what could be described as against the norm, Epsilon has removed their just recently acquired French CS:GO team. And the reason why they had to GO is not really explained fully.
The news was short and bittersweet, as Epsilon described their negotiations basically went to naught and they were concerned about the “internal strife” that is happening within their team which may in turn affect their organization. It wouldn't be the first time Epsilon has been dealt with this kind of blow, as they have had CS:S teams that had been openly critical of them.
Greg “Slick” Champagne, General Manager of Epsilon stated:
“The general feeling is disappointment, and before going into new negotiations, we decided to stop this before any harm is done to our organisation and its sponsors. The team had some internal issues to fix ( departure of apeX from his teammates), and with these came new set of objectives. We have always worked very close with our teams, and in a long term basis, this was just never meant to happen. Good luck to Shox and his teammmates.”
The French CS:GO team, headed by the talented Richard “shox” Papilion is now a freelance or out of jobs. It will be highly doubtful that they will remain in this state as eSports organizations will be scrambling to acquire their services.
