BuyKey ace Julien "AREA" Dubois has revealed that he has turned down an offer to join LDLC.com.
The French player has established himself as one of the most sought-after talents in his country following his impressive displays at Epsilan, where he boasted an impressive 87 per cent headshot ratio despite BuyKey finishing 7th-8th.
Such performances drew the attention of LDLC.com, who are on the lookout for a new player to replace Mathieu "MaT" Leber, who missed Mad Catz last month in Vienna and is expected to become inactive again.
After playing with LDLC for a few days, though, Dubois has declined their offer, citing lack of motivation as the reason.
"I started playing CS:GO without too much conviction," Dubois told Vakarm.net. "The really high level that I reached in the last weeks really motivated me to play more seriously.
"But BuyKey's failures really destroyed that motivation and playing for LDLC for a few days did not rekindle the flame.
"I preferred to stop this now instead of going on this adventure and in the end making them waste more time."
LDLC, who ended up attending Mad Catz with Robin "GMX" Stahmer as a stand-in, finished in 5th-8th place at the Austrian event.
The French team currently have the following players:
Vincent "Happy" Cervoni
Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez
Dan "apEX" Madesclaire
Fabien "atLaNtis" Deguiraud
