Former Imaginary Gaming talent Richard "shoxie" Papillon has spoken to quell rumours about a potential move to VeryGames.
Earlier on Wednesday, Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács was quoted as saying that he hoped to play alongside Papillon in the future after the duo led a TCM-Gaming mix to victory in the RADEON Offensive #2 online tournament.
The former 3DMAX ace stated, however, that Papillon was waiting to see whether VeryGames were interested in him before deciding his future.
Papillon has now insisted that even though he holds hope of playing for VeryGames once again, all rumours about changes in the French team are groundless.
"I just wanted to clarify the situation: Yes, I would like to be in VG's team, but it is only a hope that I have," he told HLTV.org.
"In fact, VeryGames have not said anything about their roster or anything. I do not have any idea if they want to change or not.
"So please, I think it would be better if we could stop all this talk about VG's roster because it is possible that they won't change anything.
"If VeryGames want to say anything about this or make a decision, they will post it on their website. Since there is no announcement, stop writing line-ups that make no sense.
"I would also like to thank all people who are behind me, and I will keep you informed about my future when it is 100 per cent sure."
After playing for the VeryGames roster led by Sébastien "krL" Perez in 2009, Papillon returned to the team in May 2011, and helped them to a highly-successful era in which they did not lose a single match.
However, internal problems led to him being removed later that year, with VeryGames picking up Michael "mK" Zaidi and then Kenny "kennyS" Schrub.

Ex6TenZ : Great IGL, All-round player, matermind
NBK : ONE of the best all-rounders in the game
SmithZz : Great teamplayer, intelligent player
ScreaM : Pretty much the best aimer there is
kennyS : Arguably the best AWPer atm.
nice troll, let me give u... 4/10!
"PRETTY MUCH the best aimer there is". He could be the worst player on the planet, i dont care, but when it comes to POINT and CLICK, he's one of the best if not THE best.
NEVER... he isnt even in top3 in csgo
Skadoodle > kennyS
AZK > kennyS
f0rest > kennyS
not sure why you say that AZK is a better sniper than kennys... he was nowhere to be seen during their match at ESEA.
skadoodle is good but he's just as inconsistent as kennys, and VG aren't going to play the americans too often.
Anyway kennyS is kinda good with sniper... hes missing soo many shots for the difference of AZK,Skadoodle,GuardiaN..
Hes hitting the impossible shots and missing the easy ones..
Next VeryGames lineup:
shoxie is prolly going to join VG next.

actually, they full deaded will be cadread wrinting about vg deaded in cs:go. site deaded, team deaded, game deaded. Absolute Deaded!
Will get 4 more rounds on NiP, lose matches 16-8 instead of 16-4.
But seriously, Ex6 should consider removing SmithZ for Shox. His tactics aren't working because CS:GO is more individualistic than CSS. He needs to give his players more freedom to do their own thing.

If shoxie doesn't join VG I wish he stays with TCM or join LDLC instead of Sf.
You cant even rate guardian yet since he is not on any team worth mentioning.

Shoxie for kennyS.
Its been proven time and time again that in CSGO you do not need a good awper to be succesful. NiP have a decent awper at best and they shit on teams with players like kennyS and GuardiaN.
Smithzzz awped alot in source and ex6 was pretty beast as well and could problebly pick it up again if they have to. VG with 5 rifles is way more versatile then having kennyS walk around with an awp.
You dont need a top awp like markeloff and friis like you did in 1.6.

three weeks ago your statement would've made more sense because ex6tenz was totally incapable of fragging with rifles and it seemed that the only way for him to frag was to use an AWP, however he stepped it up the last two events.
if anyone has to go it's smithzz, he never has his moments of greatness unlike nbk scream or kennys, and his gamesense is pretty bad too.

I dont think theres any room for shox atm since they just picked up ScreaM. Too bad its not a 6man lineup game :/
In this case it's only a wish from shox. He wants to be on verygames. And it's understandable because he was the best CSS player in the world imho.
Richard told us (vakarm) a few times in a podcast and then on our stream that it's only something he hope.
As if tomorrow delpan said he wanted to go to NiP. This doesn't mean that it will happen. It's just something he wants.
We know how VG works and if there was something between shox and VG, he would not tell anyone.

Shox says Scream will join VG
Guardian says Shox will join VG
Org/Team/Player deny or at least throw doubt on the original story.
Scream joins VG.
The statement reads (to me at least) like he has been told to say these things. He emphasis on "VG will announce" seems scripted.
Just my opinion, vakarm and others would know more about the FR scene then me. I just watch too many detective shows.
Anyway, as usual "wait and see" ! :D
I do understand your point but I just think he is lowering himself
