The duo played together for a TCM-Gaming mix at the weekend in the RADEON Offensive #2 tournament, helping the team to finish in first place in the online competition, ahead of Western Wolves and Absolute Legends.
After the tournament, and upon revealing that he had parted company with mousesports, Dimitrios "stavros" Smoilis told HLTV.org that he "would love" to play with this lineup, but admitted to being unsure about whether this would be possible.
Kovács, who is currently on the lookout for a new team following the disbandment of 3DMAX, has now stated that he would be open to playing with Papillon in the future, but stated that the Frenchman remains hopeful of returning to VeryGames.
"Papillon is a very good friend of mine, I have been in touch with him regularly for the past years and we have always got along well," Kovács told Playzone.cz.
"It will all depend on shoxie, who is waiting for an offer from VeryGames. If he remains, I would be glad, because playing for an international team would be a new experience for me."
Papillon joined VeryGames in May 2011 and helped the team through one of the most dominant periods in the history of CS:Source, with several first-place finishes on LAN tournaments, including the ESWC finals.
However, the former Imaginary Gaming talent did not fit in well with some of the players on the team, which led to his departure in November 2011. After that, VeryGames picked up Michael "mK" Zaidi, but in April 2012 decided to replace him with Kenny "kennyS" Schrub.
Since switching to CS:GO, VeryGames have not yet been able to establish themselves as the number-one side in the world, losing various tournaments to Ninjas in Pyjamas.
After losing Cédric "RpK" Guipouy to retirement, the French giants picked up Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom as their new fifth player, but the move has not improved the fortunes of the team - who finished fourth at Copenhagen Games and third at the ESEA Finals.
The return of Papillon to VeryGames would boost the team's firepower even more, but questions remain whether the players will get past the personal problems that ruined this relationship last time.
