Following yesterday's qualification for SLTV StarSeries VI, SuperstarS have announced that they will stick together.
The French team finished in third place in the five-team StarSeries qualifier, with two victories and two defeats, this way securing the last spot in the prestigious online league, which will kick off on May 13th.
It was the very first tournament for this team, and for some of their players it represented a comeback from months of inactivity.
Indeed, players like Matthieu "mateOo" Dal Maso, who was part of the so-called "classic VeryGames roster" and of ROCCAT, and Boris "flex0r" Latry, formerly of redLine and hf.MOTHER, had not played CS:GO competitively before this tournament, so many people in the French scene were curious to see how they would perform.
Former Imaginary Gaming duo Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel and Thomas "akeR" Radovic, and ex-Buykey member Jérémy "liptoN" Girardeau make up the rest of SuperstarS' team.
"We decided to play the Starladder qualifiers and EMS A-Series with this lineup, not only because of the good atmosphere between us, but also because we truly believe that with the right practice we can do something good," Radovic told vakarm.net.
"Regarding our ambitions, I cannot deny that they will depend on our results in Starladder and EMS.
"Mat will be our ingame leader because he is very calm, has a lot of experience and reads the game very well. He has not lost his touch even after being inactive for some years.
"Some people will say that he is unstable, but considering what he has told us, he seems very committed to this team."
SuperstarS' lineup consists of the following players:
Matthieu "mateOo" Dal Maso
Boris "flex0r" Latry
Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel
Thomas "akeR" Radovic
