We Got Game have announced the addition of Kévin "Uzzziii" Vernel to their CS:GO lineup.
The French team are still taking baby steps towards the European elite but have already affirmed themselves as a team to look out for, having reached the group stage of RaidCall EMS One, in which they suffered defeats to Ninjas in Pyjamas and Refuse.
With the ESWC qualifier and the EPS season just around the corner, We Got Game have decided to shake things up and parted ways with Joey "fxy0" Schlosser, who had been playing the role of the team's sniper, even after the arrival of Kenny "kennyS" Schrub.
Replacing him will be former Imaginary Gaming member Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel, who returns to activity after some months away from the spotlight following the breakup of PyRoGEN.
"For some time we had realised that there were some internal differences in terms of of one particular player's goals," Vincent "Happy" Cervoni told vakarm.net.
"Fyxo, despite the fact that he is one of the best snipers in Europe, did not share the same vision both inside and outside the game, which could affect our preparation for the ESWC qualifier.
"I have no doubt that he will soon find a new team where he can accomplish all his personal goals, and I would like to wish him the best of luck.
"Uzzziii is a solid and serious player who will perfectly fill this void. He and I played together for a brief spell in redLine, and I am sure that he will not disappoint."
We Got Game now have the following lineup:
Vincent "Happy" Cervoni
Robin "GMX" Stahmer
Jérémy "liptoN" Girardeau
Kenny "kennyS" Schrub
Kévin "Uzzziii" Vernel
