kennyS joins We Got Game

MIRAA
October 1st, 2013 13:57

Former VeryGames talent Kenny "kennyS" Schrub has announced that he has linked up with We Got Game.

The French AWPer had been without a home since the disbandment of LDLC.com in August, a news that took the CS:GO scene by storm as the team had been performing well lately.

Last month, Schrub linked up with WARMAKER for the Masters Français du Jeu Vidéo finals, where the team led by Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavini finished in third place, behind VeryGames and Clan-Mystik.

After spending the last few weeks searching for a new team, Schrub has now been snared by We Got Game, where he will reunite with his former LDLC team-mate Vincent "Happy" Cervoni.


kennyS reunites with Happy in We Got Game

He will step into the shoes of Jérôme "HeUkA" Bassat, who has decided  to take a break from gaming.

"Unfortunately, heuka no longer had the motivation to continue playing, so we decided to stop," Robin "GMX" Stahmer told vakarm.net.

"Regarding the choice of our new fifth, we had been in contact with kennyS for a while. Since the disbandment of LDLC, kennyS had told me wanted to play again for a team with goals and also that he wanted to play alongside Happy.

"Regarding our role as a sniper, we do not have time to change our tactics in time for the upcoming events (ESWC qualifier/EMS One). So fyx0 will continue playing as a sniper, while kennyS will assume heuka's positions on all maps."

We Got Game now have the following lineup:

France Vincent "Happy" Cervoni
France Robin "GMX" Stahmer
France Joey "fxy0" Schlosser
France Jérémy "liptoN" Girardeau
France
Kenny "kennyS" Schrub

good stuff

Is there any reason for this player do not back in to VG ?! He is the best AWPer at the moment ...Do not take it personnal Smithzz's fans since he is the main AWPer. I really like his work , however kennyS is much better on my point of view.
2013-10-01 14:16
Acually, im not even sure that he would go back to VG even if he got asked back, because they kicked him without giving him notice before and he was Shocked about it. So Kennys probably have bad blood with VG. Correct me if im wrong, though.
2013-10-01 14:27
If Valve keep add money, they can be best friends anyway.
2013-10-01 14:35
Depends on how much bad blood there is within the team, sure it might work out for a While but in the long run I do Belive it Will hurt VG as a team if they keep argueing with each other.
2013-10-01 14:42
well atleast kennyS sais ''Nice'' for VG when they won NiP yesterday

2013-10-01 14:42
yeah for sure, that was one of the doggest moves ive seen a team make. KennyS was pretty classy not to get publicly super pissed at them and cause a golden5 style scene. One of the worst KFC's ive seen, I remember comparing his stats to NBK at the time where kennys was better then him across the board. Just stats ofc and I love nbk, but the point being made at the time was kennys had been playing badly for ages, which was a complete fabrication.

Statistics mean nothing in this particular situation. KennyS lacked and still lacks experience, something that VG desperately needed if they were topple the top 2/3. Not to mention KennyS was a very inconsistent awper in VG, a lot of people put this down to Ex6TenZ' leading style, but regardless it was losing them matches. Only after being kicked from VG did KennyS actually start performing well with the awp, he was replaced by one of the best ever CS:S players too - Shoxie. So in my mind I feel it was a win win for VeryGames and KennyS. It's just unfortunate that LDLC died.
2013-10-01 15:44
niak kicked him, I'm pretty sure most vg players didn't care about kennys staying in the team or not.
2013-10-01 18:35
Its been mentioned by NBK before one of the main reasons they decided to part with Kenny was because he didn't fit well into Ex6tenZ's leadership style. Their strat caller dictates a lot of decisions for the team that usually an individual would be free to make, it works for them and everyone in the team are good friends so they stick with it. This put a lot of constraints on Kenny though, a fair amount of his kills come from deviating from where he's supposed to be (much like an awp'ing version of Neo), even if Kenny has more individual awping skill than Smithzz does, Smithzz fits better into Ex6tenZ's bigger picture.
2013-10-01 14:43
can agree with some of this but I get confused with the past reasons for why shoxie left the team, was ex6tenz on that team? I think this shows a lot more flaws on ex6tenz leadership then it does kennys, unless ex6 specifically wants a tactical awper as opposed to a playmaking awper (which i guess is what your arguing hehe) There is so much context missing with decisions like this, like how much kennys was playing, his patterns with practice, chemistry, personalities etc. Also IMO I don't like this standard in the top 5 world teams where there is no coach. I think there is a lot of competitive advantage to be made in having a coach/strat caller in a tandem role where they work close together but ultimatley the coach has the last say. And I don't mean that in a game really, more out of the game, between bo3 matches etc.
2013-10-01 15:31
From what's occurred I think it's safe to say Ex6tenz wanted a tactical awper instead of one that could build momentum for the team. Considering how long some of these guys have played together they all probably have similar wants and needs when it comes to new team mates. Unless the VG guys went into further detail all we can do is speculate. I don't think it's bad of Ex6, the guy just knows what he wants and when you're a team in VG's position you can afford to be picky. It mainly comes down to expectations and goals, most teams right now are probably happy aiming for being considered top 5, VG on the other hand are looking to be the number 1 team in CS:GO. I think Kenny's an excellent awper, but regardless of talent you need to play in a team where fellow member's philosophies about the game match or accommodate yours. If you want I can find you the Fnatic Podcast here NBK talks to Thorin, Lurppis and Carn about the lineup changes they had?
2013-10-01 18:13
Found it for you, linked it at the point where he discusses Shox and Kenny too :) youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailp..
2013-10-01 18:16
puh.. waste of AWPER
2013-10-01 14:21
Good luck to Kenny and the gang. I really miss seeing Kenny in action lately.

Add apex and ozstrik3r and they are world beaters
2013-10-01 14:34
I love to see fxy0 playing the AWP role this guy is underrated, ofc kennyS is prob better but you have to give other players a chance and dont forget kenny is good with a rifle too :)
2013-10-01 14:43
The moment when u realize, that the headphone is bigger, than kennyS's head :D:D btw, gl:]

So, Clan-mystik defeated VG in finals of Masters Français du Jeu Vidéo? I don't know what happened in 3rd map after it start too late.
2013-10-01 15:12
Gl kenny...
2013-10-01 15:13
I don't get it why kennyS will not play as sniper, he's one of the best AWPers in the whole world, the fastest with the most accurate shots ever
2013-10-01 15:19
"Regarding our role as a sniper, we do not have time to change our tactics in time for the upcoming events (ESWC qualifier/EMS One). So fyx0 will continue playing as a sniper, while kennyS will assume heuka's positions on all maps."
2013-10-01 15:36
u don't say.. I mean why he does not play fxy0's role in that team...
2013-10-01 15:39
you should read it again :)
2013-10-01 15:40
it's not about changing tactics, it's about changing roles - its easy
2013-10-01 15:41
kennys doesn't know how WGG play the sniper on certain maps, and fxy0 never played heuka's role. In their way, there is only one person that needs to pracc a role, and this is kennys, the rest of the team remains the same, it's easier.
2013-10-01 15:43
Easier on short term. If the want to become a force KennyS should be AWPING!
2013-10-02 14:24
As they are going to play some tournaments soon, taking the short term decision is wiser.

Good to see KennyS back, the kid never fails to surprise me. He has some great ability. I imagine that we will see him awping sooner than later, surely there will be a time when they can surprise teams and double awp and knowing KennyS' ability they will surely look to take advantage of that.
2013-10-01 15:40
good to see fxy0 and gmx the cheaters back in a team
2013-10-01 15:47
yeah sure.. "cheaters".
2013-10-01 15:52
they cheated in 2k10/2011 in source :D got demos and a lot of people know they used to cheat
2013-10-01 16:39
delpan, colon, diodel and a lot other people cheated aswell, will you call them cheaters for the rest of their lives ?
2013-10-01 16:42
i am pretty sure they admitted to it, and thats fair play to them. These guys cheated day in day out on irc invites, a lot of top players saw their demos and they were banned from all channels. It just goes to show, you can cheat online and then play for 200 hours before a 'PxL' lan and still do decent. Their demos were really obvious as well
2013-10-01 16:46
Are we talking about the same topic here ?
2013-10-01 16:54
this may be a retarded question, but why need for tactics change when u can just change players, like instead of fxy0 doing his role kennyS does it for him while fxy0 does the rifler r0le, kennyS is cleary the stronger AWP
