shoxie cools VeryGames rumours

April 24th, 2013 18:17

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.

shoxie unaware of VG's plans

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

"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.

ofcourse we understand that it's your wishes, shoxie; i'm not sure that VG will kick any of their players

NBK stated that shoxie will never be back in VG in an interview with Cadred...
2013-04-24 18:20
did he said any reason?
2013-04-24 18:44
not sure, probably what was reason he quit the team, quarrels with smithzz iirc

They should consider him. Current team chemistry, it's taking them nowhere.

Shox is good player but not for VG .. VG have good roster .. The scrim is more than more interessed
2013-04-24 18:37
Yep exactly.
2013-04-24 18:42
"Since there is no announcement, stop writing line-ups that make no sense" lol
2013-04-24 18:47
I guess shoxie comes here to see his fan club :D
2013-04-24 19:57
shoxie, good player - but I don't think it would work with him in VG... No player on VG deserves the boot. 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.

ScreaM : Pretty much the best aimer there is nice troll, let me give u... 4/10!
2013-04-24 19:39
2/10. the ex6 attempt was awful. he is 0 as a player and 2/10 as igl.
2013-04-24 19:42
so much hate on CS:S u prick
2013-04-24 23:04
he's getting a lot better than a few months ago, so i'd give him 5/10 as a player and 7/10 as igl, which still isn't enough for a top team like VG

i dislike Scream for leaving Shox and Uzzi behind coz i value friendship/loyalty but you should just shut ur fucking polish pipe, and be realistic, or maybe learn English. "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.

2013-04-24 19:57
which AWPers are better than him?
2013-04-25 02:47
GuardiaN > kennyS Skadoodle > kennyS AZK > kennyS f0rest > kennyS enough?
2013-04-25 14:10
"f0rest > kennyS" lmao
2013-04-25 14:55
forest is a second awp in NiP after fifflaren but whenever he uses awp hes hiting all the shots... for the difference of kennyS whos failing all the time
2013-04-25 15:01
forest is nothing special with an awp, there's a lot of people who AWP just as good as him, and his AWP never makes a big impact on the game. 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.
2013-04-25 15:23
i was watching a game between dynamic and Quantic on dust2 and AZK was just impossible with his awp so. 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..
2013-04-25 15:38
matermind -4-
2013-04-24 20:22
kennys best AWPer arround ? I don`t think so . He misses too much ! He needs to step up his game for sure !

2013-04-24 19:15

VG denied it for a couple of weeks before announcing ScreaM was indeed joining them. Who really knows, maybe they really are considering shoxie.
2013-04-24 21:22
Well I HIGHLY doubt that, the only reason they would consider him would be because one player of VG has to stop playing the game.
2013-04-24 21:24
haha, i love his interviews/posts here. he's so honest every time! :D <3
2013-04-24 19:09

2013-04-24 19:15
ex6tenz getting the same crap from noobs like nooky used to in source
2013-04-24 19:16
Despite losing to Quantic they played NiP 14-16 on two maps? Why change the lineup?
2013-04-24 19:22
still 2 defeats. i think they are at 0-14 vs nip on lan? last 2 lans they've meet WW they lost? they also lost from lower teams. VG deaded, if you can be deaded in a deaded game. actually, they full deaded will be cadread wrinting about vg deaded in cs:go. site deaded, team deaded, game deaded. Absolute Deaded!
2013-04-24 19:44
Can't tell if troll or not.. Deaded?
2013-04-24 20:04
what the fuck are you trying to say, you sound like a spastic rofl
2013-04-24 20:15
It would be even cooler if you would read that news then, and be deaded.
2013-04-24 21:47
I don't see VG changing anyone any time soon
2013-04-24 19:27
they have to. istead of challenging nip 1st place, they are not even top3 anymore. vp, nip, ww.
2013-04-24 19:45
So VP won 2 matches over NiP and they are suddenly Number 1.. Stop it you
2013-04-24 20:05
he never said he ranked them in order
2013-04-24 20:50
Scream Like A Stupid Fag
2013-04-24 19:33
ex6 is the lead .... but even if ex6 levels is bad compare to the mates. I don't think that ! Maybe Scream...
2013-04-24 20:05
Scream Rpk Shox NBK KennyS Rpk IGL 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.
2013-04-24 20:22
VG needs somebody with cold blood and high skill to close maps against top teams. If shoxie doesn't join VG I wish he stays with TCM or join LDLC instead of Sf.
2013-04-24 20:23
-Smitz and +shoxie and VG have dreamteam, scream + shoxie + NBK unstopable riflers + the best awp in CS:GO kenny... this is awesome combination
2013-04-24 20:26
Australia TotalEclipse 
I think Kenny is far from the best awp in CS:GO if we're honest.
2013-04-24 21:42
Finland Kklz 
Yeah, he is good but far too unstable.
2013-04-24 22:01

Do you mean inconsistent? If so then I agree.
2013-04-25 08:54
Yeah thats what i meant :).
2013-04-25 10:45
And which player is the best what u think? Nico? Guardian? i think that this players is little behind kennys, but yeah he is unstable but again he carried VG in much games.
2013-04-25 10:16
Nico is a lot more consistent so yeah id rate him above Kenny. Fox (from VP) showed a lot of potential aswell, cant wait to see how he performs at the next big lan. You cant even rate guardian yet since he is not on any team worth mentioning.
2013-04-25 10:59
yep, agree. but kennys is far away from top 1 awper. he is way to unstable.
2013-04-24 22:56
VG don't need to change their roster
2013-04-24 20:41
Come oooonnn!!! VG must pick up shoxie!!

VG with shox is better than TCM with shox, simple as. not to mention that international teams do not last long.

Attention whore omg
2013-04-25 00:05
I've said this before but got seriously flamed but I'll say it again. 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.
2013-04-25 00:18
yeah you can do without an awp, still kennyS is too good an awper to kick him. he's very unstable indeed, but keep in mind he's also very inexperienced, VG picked him out of the blue and he's been playing for them for only a year. it's not like he can't rifle anyway, he's decent with all the guns. 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.
2013-04-25 02:37
shox and all the VG guys hangout together at LAN's, no idea why people still saying ex6 and him dont get along since they are always smiling and hanging out together off camera. I dont think theres any room for shox atm since they just picked up ScreaM. Too bad its not a 6man lineup game :/
2013-04-25 00:27
Didnt this exact same scenario happen with Scream when he joined VG?
2013-04-25 02:01
2013-04-25 02:33
Not at all. Last time, ScreaM told shox that he will join vg and then shox told VaKarM. Tbh ScreaM join VG only because RpK was leaving the game, it's the only reason. 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.
2013-04-25 02:43
shox was always a great player but he was even better in VG, despite playing in a team full of talented players he was still clearly standing out. he played for VG twice, both times he improved their play a LOT. i really hope VG will pick him up again, not only he's a madfragger, he's also one of the very few complete players, capable of playing any role.
2013-04-25 02:43
even when you are explaining it, it sounds the same. 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.
2013-04-25 02:49
Guardian didn't says "Shox will join VG" but " shox is waiting for an offer from VeryGames". It's not exactly the same thing. :P Anyway, as usual "wait and see" ! :D
2013-04-25 05:59
there is a clear difference, as Nel explained. Shox will not join VG atm, it's just a wish from him.
2013-04-25 08:52
i m a die hard cs1.6 supporter and anti sauce minded but i would start supporting vg right after the day they peak shoxie. He looks damn good. Mostly the top fragger and really consistent. He deserves the good team like vg. And i really think they have a better chance to win against nip with him than with anybody. And having played from vg already in the past and being a french i really think he should be in there. Well talk about the replacement i think smithz shall be replaced.
2013-04-25 05:54

how long is he going to wait for invite to VG, year? two years? ten years? they just should build new international team, find proper organization and no vg needed.

+1 he needs to move on with his life, pretty sad just publicly hinting that he really wants to be in their team.
2013-04-25 11:37
Well they are the No.1 French team and he is a French player and VG has all the sponsorship and International tournaments they can attend. Why wouldnt he want that? No other French team can come close to that and now the imG are dead, theres nowhere for him. His skill level is definitely the same level as VG, anything lower than that is just a waste of his talent.
2013-04-25 12:00

That doesn't mean he has to lower himself and start saying "I'm waiting on VG to pick me up", he is better than that, it should be them begging for him to join. He could easily make a new team, somewhat like the proposed TCM line-up, and they would get an ORG easily. I do understand your point but I just think he is lowering himself
2013-04-25 12:07
an international lineup (and new org) won't be ever close to what VG is, in terms of results or whatever the org can bring to the players
2013-04-25 12:15

United Kingdom dv-_- 
So he should just sit around sulking until they give in and give him a spot in their team? C'mon, there are plenty of good players around to make a solid line-up, and there are plenty of amazing org's that don't have a team in GO, such as SK Gaming.
