LDLC disbands, Sf & Maniac inactive
French LDLC have decided to disband due to lack of motivation and weak results across the board, despite looking promising in May when Kenny "kennyS" Schrub joined.
Gordon "Sf" Giry and Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez will be headed into inactivity as the two plan to bow out of competitive gaming at the highest levels at least for the time being.
Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and Vincent "Happy" Cervoni plan on continuing to play CS:GO, but as of now it seems they do not intend to stick together in the same team.
kennyS and apEX split up
LDLC instantly delivered promising results upon Schrub's joining, as they defeated teams such as Virtus.pro and NiP in various online leagues before a disappointing summer season.
The Frenchmen fell short against Epsilon at DreamHack for 3-4th place and bottomed out at EMS One Finals with a defeat against fnatic. They also failed to qualify for SLTV StarSeries VII and Mad Catz Invitational Finals.

LDLC.com will create a temporary mixteam for Masters Français du Jeu Vidéo Finals later this month. MFJV will also serve as the French ESWC qualifier. The organization is expected to announce a new team in September.
