Video: shoxie vs VeryGames

One of the most talented CS:GO players out there, Richard "shoxie" Papillon, led Imaginary Gaming to a 16-12 victory over his former team VeryGames. We bring you two important clutch rounds from him in the early stages of the match.

Imaginary Gaming served us a big surprise when they beat their overlords VeryGames 16-12 in the quarter-final of RaidCall EMS One Cup #2. Even though they were losing at the half 5-10 they managed to turn the score around later, while two of those first half round-wins came at an important time and were a real masterpiece of the team's star player Richard "shoxie" Papillon.

As Imaginary found themselves down 1-5 and another round seemingly going the wrong way, Papillon was left in a 1-on-2 situation having only 10 HP and the C4 on his back. Needless to say, he pulled of a victory, but only to find himself in a similar situation in the very next round. This time he first took out three opponents and then had to deal with Kévin "Ex6tenZ" Droolans in a 1vs1 while having 6 HP.

Probably the most complete player out there next to f0rest and pasha at the moment. Amazing pistoleer, rifler, sniper and clutcher. Pretty sad that he has to carry Oz. :D

2013-02-22 11:19
SmithZz already tried a few times in css, he's not made for that. ex6 is the best ig leader in france without any doubt. Give him time.
2013-02-22 13:15
I dont say anything about his igl role itself im talking about his frag ability. he is nowhere near Berg Xizt whoever calls in ESC (kuben i guess).
2013-02-22 13:22
best in france because harts doesn't play ;DDD

Ex6tenZ has stepped it up in CS:GO now, and it performing as he should, which is consistently, but not stealing the show. He is probably on par with SmithZz skill wise at the moment in GO, so I wouldn't say swap Shox for Ex6tenZ. Not to mention the VeryGames org will never get rid of Ex6tenZ and shox will not be in VeryGames again while Ex6TenZ is there.

its like saying "we dont want to win anything" ex6tenz holding them back.

Just did a bit of research, and in 5 of their last games in the demo section, he has not bottom fragged once. He came 4th twice, 3rd twice and 2nd once if I remember correctly. SmithZz was bottom fragging in every game. That doesn't seem like a player that is holding them back to me, especially since he also has IGL duties.
