French shuffle

All evidences point to a french shuffle after the major : - According to Richard Lewis and Thorin in By the Numbers #18, discussions are going on behind the scenes and they hinted that Ex6tenz will be a part of the changes. - Kioshima has been hinting for weeks on his twitter account that he "can't wait to play after the major" - Misfits has chosen not to sign new contracts with its American players, hinting that they will focus on a french lineup. - EnvyUs' form is so shit that they are certainly going to try to change something My theory is the following : - If G2 does really well at the major, they are probably going to keep this lineup, however they might try to bring in Rpk (if he recovers from his health issues) for bodyy - Misfits and Envyus are the two orgs that will battle to get the best team, with LDLC getting rekt since they don't have enough money to compete. Since EnvyUs is the (much) richer org, I think they will have the upper hand and will certainly retain Scream and Rpk (or whoever he replaces in G2). If they chose to they can keep happy, but they also can bring in Ex6tenz (would explain the hint by thorin and R.Lewis). Misfits will probably get the other IGL and keep devoduvek and amanek. The rest of the two teams will be comprised of (by order of likelihood) : Kio, Xms, Maniac, Alex (bc ex6 likes him and will probably want him in his team), Sixer, DEVIL, Toinou. Zywoo could also be in one of these teams but it is less likely as he finishes school in June. LDLC will be left with the leftovers and lose their spot in ESL Pro league

What will happen in your opinion ?

Ex6TenZ Maniac k1o/ALEX RpK ScreaM
2018-01-24 13:04
Could happen under the Envy banner, but I would say : k1o for sure Maniac/Alex (and most likely alex for his entryfragger role)

Could be interesting if they bring in ZywOo, but if they dont, then Ex6TenZ has to take main AWPer spot.
2018-01-24 13:10
That would probably be terrible, I know he was an excellent AWPer in CSS but his time is long gone and even in LDLC he wasn't convincing with it when seconding toinou. I would more likely imagine a team without a dedicated awper, with k1o and him taking it in some special occasions

I dont belive this lineup could work on another way than Ex6 with awp. Imo he was pretty good with awp. But if he practice more, it could be enought to have a decent team. Lets see what happens. i hope to see changes soon
2018-01-24 13:16
So, Happy retired and we dont know ? nV is happy team, dont see it without him. And certainly not to build a lineup around washed up Ex6TenZ
2018-01-24 13:28
"envyus is happy's team" ... in what way ? the day the org has had enough of him they throw him out.
2018-01-24 14:19
IF that was the case, they would allready have done it at the last shuffle and took a new lineup from a different country
2018-01-24 14:47
Ho and BTW, G2 wont do any change, loosing in quater or winning the major. I dont even think that RpK inclusion is on the table Shox beleives in boddy so much that he will be in G2 as long as Shox is.
2018-01-24 14:49
Why would ex6 tweet this then
2018-01-24 13:05
He his very professional and won't say he doesn't give an f* about next tournaments, plus depending on when some contracts end, he might play at assembly winter with LDLC and then join another team
2018-01-24 13:07
No /close

If it keeps going well, why change ?
2018-01-24 13:07
for G2, yes. But I can tell you that EnvyUs, one of if not the richest American org, isn't happy to pay their players 20k a month to do sh*t all
2018-01-24 13:08

Yeah true. Kio would be good. They need an awper tho
2018-01-24 13:12
There are basically no options for a competitive awper right now. That's why I imagine that Zywoo will have to transform from hybrid to a primary awper when he comes to the top, like S1mple in Navi and Device in Astralis. For now french teams will have to make do with crappy awpers or no dedicated awning role

G2 doesn't take RpK, shox say "Je veux une team sur le long terme' you understand french ofc ;), and G2 have no raisons for kick bodyy it's a good player. Misfits and EnVyUs i agree 100% (MSF a french line up born 100/100) with k1o and i agree for ZyWoo Nice post my french friend ;D
2018-01-24 13:09
One year is already a long time for a french team, plus you can't take what players say for granted. But I agree that them taking in Rpk is unlikely, especially since they now are in the playoffs of the major.

If you want my opinion one of the teams is gonna look like this no matter the org : Scream RPK Amanek Devoduvek *Insert french awper here*
2018-01-24 13:13
Insert an IGL you mean ? The french scene is lacking so much roles right now compared to the raw talent it has, good igls (maybe ex6tenz is still good but definitely not happy), and good dedicated awpers (toinou and sixer are really bad)
2018-01-24 13:16
true, good for us zywoo arrives soon

You don't need an IGL if you can just rush b and win every duel *taps head*
2018-01-24 14:43
i don't see happy leaving NV, but -sixer +kio for sure (happy awping then)

G2 richer than nv
2018-01-24 14:30
doesnt matter what happens, if the g2 line still the same, all the other french teams will be trash. the chance of happy stay on the secondary best french team is huge, so the team is fucked already... happy will never play FOR the team, NEVER. so they probably will make a team a little bit better than envy, but nothing around top5 material or something like that... so zzZZzzZZZzZZ only good thing is: kio back into the scene. outside of that nothing to be happy about
2018-01-24 14:47
zywoo is certainly getting involved in the "shuffle" (aint no shuffle without g2, and they for sure wont change the lineup), because smooya said "zywoo is already taken" when asked about him and his future
2018-01-24 14:50
G2 will stay the same even if they lose to C9 in the quarters I'd like to see ScreaM and RpK playing in a team without Happy's in-game leading. If they joined up with Ex6tenZ and the Misfits duo (or k1o +1) it could be fun to watch.
