The 3rd place on our Top 20 of 2013 by eSportsventure.com goes to Richard "shox" Papillon. Even though the 21-year-old Frenchman only joined VeryGames in May, his consistent performances helped them rise to the top of the world and finally overcome NiP on several occasions.  

Basic info and history

https://static.hltv.org/images/galleries/1693-medium/1390074949.047.jpeg

Richard "shox" Papillon started playing Counter-Strike back in the days of 1.5, and then slowly moved on to each next version of the game, ending up in CS:Source.

In 2008 he started making his breakthrough with a team called Creativ` and already in March 2009 he joined VeryGames for the first time. Already then he was already an established top player, by many accounts even the best in the world, but the team itself ran into some problems and would be released from the organization near the end of the year.

Papillon would then even try out playing CS 1.6 for a short period in 2010, but he went back to CSS to represent ROCCAT, LDLC.com and later 3DMAX together with another current star, Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom.

After only a few months in that 3DMAX team, Papillon left to join VeryGames once again where he would sit on top of the world for about six months. And then despite being one of the best players in the world and winning ESWC with the team, he was removed due to internal problems at the end of November 2011.

He would go back to team up with Benrlitom in Tt Dragons at the beginning of 2012, and they would together switch to CS:GO when the new game came out. By the end of the year, under the sponsorship of Imaginary Gaming they managed to attend their first LAN event, SLTV StarSeries IV Finals, where they came in 3rd behind ESC and Virtus.pro.

But to start 2013 off Richard "shox" Papillon lost the help of his star teammate Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, who left Imaginary to join none other than VeryGames. He was replaced by former CS 1.6 French star Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli, and early results actually showed promise from the lineup, especially when they beat Benrlitom's new team 16-12 in RC EMS One Spring Cup #2.

Their first LAN, however, didn't go as well since they were out of the first group stage at Mad Catz Vienna behind NiP, TCM-Gaming and Nostalgie, albeit throught some very unfortunate circumstances.

"Ozstrik3r was our in-game leader, and due to the event or I don’t know, MAJ3R and mshz began to help him in that role, but it was too much. Due to that, we had like 3 in-game leaders, so there were a lot of misunderstandings during matches.

Moreover, we really had no luck about the round difference, I remember the last match of the group was Nostalgie against TCM, each team could win or lose and we were still supposed to pass. There was only one way for us to not pass the group stage, and it was that TCM win 16-9 (only this score) against Nostalgie, so a really small probability, and unfortunately things went like this..."

Despite that disappointing result, even in those three maps Papillon displayed his incredible skill, scoring 0.99 kills per round (1.36 rating) while losing two of them, including a 9-16 defeat to NiP.


shox did great in Vienna despite his team's poor results

Before the big spring series of tournaments would begin, Papillon & co. found out that Imaginery would not be able to send them to Copenhagen Games, so they decided to leave the organization in hopes of finding other support. But after that didn't happen, the team took it hard and disbanded.

Papillon did still qualify for RaidCall EMS One Spring Finals with a mix team called SuperstarS, and they eventually attended the event under the Imaginary banner, but it was a forgettable experience as fnatic handed them a 1-16, 5-16 loss in the quarter-final.

Later in April Papillon made an international mix team together with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and Anil "cLy" Gülec, and that lineup showed excellent potential while representing TCM-Gaming, qualifying for SLTV StarSeries VI and winning a few other online events.

But with unsatisfying results from VeryGames during the start of the year, Papillon wasn't willing to commit to this project and was hoping that he would get a chance for his third stint in the biggest French organization.

"I didn’t know that VeryGames will ask me [to join], I only know how a top-team works, and I knew if they were not able to beat NiP during their Spring Tour in April, there might be a chance they would want to change something.

Because of that, I didn't want engage myself in a new project, there was a little chance for my eSport career in that period for this to happen, but I wanted to wait and it happened. And I told my mates that if I don't get that offer, I'll definitely try the project. All these guys (strux, cLy, GuardiaN, stavros) were amazing and I really loved playing with them."

And finally on May 7th it was official, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was removed from the team and Papillon was added, much to the community's delight. However, there was a shroud of doubt above the change, as things previously didn't work out between VeryGames and him back in the CSS days, so some people were surprised that he was given another chance.

"Last time I played with VeryGames was in 2011, so 2 years had passed, everyone grew up and we talked a lot to fix the old problems, to begin a new period with a new mentality."

Even though the start with the new lineup was no better than how VeryGames fared before that, with losses online to LDLC.com, Na`Vi, NiP and Virtus.pro in each of the four RC EMS One Summer cups, it would soon prove to be the right change.

They passed up on DreamHack Summer due to exam obligations, and also in order to have more time to get the new lineup in shape, so the first test was at the RaidCall EMS One Summer Finals.

And already in his first few matches, Papillon showed what kind of asset for VeryGames he will be, top fragging in both the quarter-final against Copenhagen Wolves (63:49, 1.16 rating) and the semi-final vs. fnatic (49:40, 1.25 rating).


shox lifting his first trophy of 2013

And while there was no need for him to shine in the final against Virtus.pro as Nathan "NBK" Schmitt took over, it was an excellent debut for Papillon who still ended up with the most kills at the event (154).

"For the first event, I tried to maximally help Ex6TenZ in my co-leader role. It meant adding a new point of view to develop a better game overall for all situations. I also tried to calm and maximize the communication during this event, so we could be more confident and minimize errors during the game."

But since Virtus.pro had defeated NiP, VeryGames were still left wondering where they stand in comparison to the Swedes after the lineup change. They wouldn't find out for two more months, during which time they only appeared at Mad Catz Cologne defeating fnatic in the final 16-8, 16-5.

At the beginning of September they got the first taste of victory against NiP, taking one map in the final of FACEIT Cup, despite still losing the series (16-13, 14-16, 12-16). But a week later at DreamHack Bucharest things would go completely differently and the Swedes would practically stomp them already in the quarter-final (10-16, 2-16).

"I was really disappointed, more than ever I guess because I put a lot of effort for this event and it didn't work out at that moment.

But Ex6TenZ was really confident about the future, he told me he was not disappointed with the result because he knew we were just not in good form, but everything we worked on will pass in the future for sure and he was right. We just tried to forget this event asap in order to focus on the next events which were coming up."

And his teammate and in-game leader Kevin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans was right, things did start working soon after that. First they finally managed to beat NiP online in the semi-final of MSI Beat it European Finals (16-7, 16-8), and then they repeated that on LAN at SLTV StarSeries VII Finals.

On this occasion, Papillon would have his best tournament performance, and one of the best by any player during the year. After the 16-14, 16-6 victory over NiP, VeryGames also went on to defeat Astana Dragons two times to win their second title since the lineup change.

Papillon ended up with an amazing 0.91 kills per round and a 1.42 rating, far above everyone else as the clear MVP of this event. Especially memorable was his performance in the upper bracket final when he had a 77:39 score (1.64 rating) in the 2-1 win over Astana.

"After our big fail in Bucharest, I was like 'Ok we are playing NiP, we have nothing to lose, just go ahead and play your game'. Due to our performance in our last event, I had really no pressure, I guess it helped me." – about his performance at SLTV StarSeries VII Finals

After that it was time to get back to the scene where they started winning back in June, this time for RaidCall EMS One Fall Finals. With another impressive performance from Papillon, who had a 1.20 rating and 7 clutch round wins, VeryGames once again came out on top and defeated NiP after a comeback in the final (5-16, 16-14, 16-6).


Bringing home another trophy from RC EMS One Fall

Even though he wasn't as dominant as in Kiev, Papillon continued being a key member during that triumph, and he would carry on in the same way at ESWC at the end of October.

Although this time the team was tripped at the last step, losing in the final to Clan-Mystik (11-16, 12-16), Papillon once again excelled in the playoff matches. Against fnatic in the quarter-final when VeryGames edged the Swedes (10-16, 16-2, 16-14) he had a 63:49 score (1.23 rating), but it was the series against NiP in the semis that earned him a few more points in the race for the best player in the world.

In a very close victory for the French-Belgian squad (16-13, 19-16), Papillon put in a Man of the Match performance (58:37, 1.38 rating, 3 clutch rounds won) to send his team to another grand final, showing that he can shine on the biggest of stages.

"It's kinda hard to find one favorite moment. I have two in my memory. The first was when we beat NiP at ESWC, the match was really hard and there were a lot of clutches, with the crowd just in front of us, it was really amazing. The second was our victory also against NiP during the last EMS, it was one of our most difficult matches and we were so happy to come back from 0-1 to 2-1."

His form would then reach its peak at the MSI Beat it Grand Finals in Beijing, China, where VeryGames returned to winning titles. In the grand final against fnatic (16-12, 16-10), Papillon had one of the most impressive individual performances of the year, which included two pistol round aces and an incredible 62:33 score (1.87 rating).

But in the last and the biggest tournament of the year, DreamHack Winter, he wouldn't carry on in the same manner despite starting well in the group stage against Xapso and compLexity. VeryGames ended up finishing second in their group which once again paired them up with NiP in the semi-final.


an amazing ace against n!faculty at DreamHack Winter

After three wins in a row against the Swedes in previous events, this time NiP would come out on top (13-16, 16-6, 5-16), leaving Papillon & co. disappointed with their performance in this 3rd-4th place finish.

"I was really mad after Dreamhack Winter, because even though I did well in group stages, I was absent in the most important matches against CPH and NiP."

Nevertheless, with the form he showed in the last few months of the year, he earned a lot of recognition and was even started being considered the best player in the world.

"I'm trying not to focus on that and about what people are expecting me to do because you get this extra pressure when you do this.

For 2014, I want to be at the top in the most important moments (like DreamHack quarter-finals and semi-finals were) and to still improve my in-game level. I know I can be better, and I want to be at my top-level for my team anywhere, in any moment.

One of my personal goals is also to help Ex6TenZ more and more in the game, there are some tough times where I don’t help him as much as I should. I definitely have to work on it."

Why is he the 3rd best player in 2013?

Even though he didn't have a lot of opportunities to establish his presence due to only joining VeryGames in May after the first part of the season had passed, Richard "shox" Papillon immediately helped them get to the next level.

He quickly became the team's star and helped them win titles at RC EMS One Summer and Fall, as well as at SLTV StarSeries VII and MSI Beat it Grand Finals with MVP-worthy performances.

While he only played 49 maps at international tournaments, he managed to win 27 clutch rounds, 9th most of all players, or 2nd most on average per map (0.55). Besides that he was one of the best fraggers (0.79 kills per round) and most consistent players (69% of maps above 1.00 rating).

Furthermore no player has scored more 3+ kill rounds on average per map (1.7) than Papillon, which made him one of the most dominant players in the world.

But although his form in the second half of the year rivaled the very best, considering the whole year he didn't do enough to go further up the list.

Bold prediction

Papillon was the third person to pick the young Norwegian player as his prediction for the future star.

Norway Martin "cENTRYZ" Brandal

"I saw him play at DreamHack with Epsilon, I was really impressed by his game-level, don't know why he is not in a top-team at the moment. I hope to see him in one this year, and if so, he'll be in the next top20 for sure!"

Tell us what you thought about Richard "shox" Papillon's performance in 2013, did he show enough for 3rd place?

Two more spots remain to be filled, and the battle for the first place between them couldn't have been closer. Stay tuned to HLTV.org to see who will end up where on our Top 20 of 2013 by eSportsventure.com.

2014-01-18 20:59
its from the whole 2013 year, not just last 6 months or so
2014-01-18 21:00
+ exactly, half hltv users are think differently and writing something: "olofm in top" but 6 months ago world didn't know who it's
2014-01-18 21:14
same for shox he was unknown in first days of 2013
2014-01-18 21:17
unknow ? lol just the best player of Source history and clearly the best VG this year.. not only 6 months.
2014-01-18 21:22
he was unknow for players from 1.6 if u remember kennys was with vg while shox was unknow and he works alot to be in that team
2014-01-18 21:32
just because you had no clue about the best css team ever and css legends, that doesn't mean shox was unknown at any time in csgo lol
2014-01-18 23:30
that time only css players know him cuz he didnt show his self in the scene
2014-01-18 23:32
he did show himself, carrying Imaginary like none else. just like ScreaM carrying BuyKey etc before he joined VG. thats like saying "only 1.6 players knew about Delpan before his teams started doing well in csgo" and he was "unknown" before that. see how stupid?
2014-01-18 23:42
Shox was doing great in teams like TCM-gaming with GuardiaN, he was never unknown. And I'm a former 1.6 player.
2014-01-19 13:24
mb, but 1st tournaments are not present in the first days of the year xD 2nd shox has been on the world stage in the team Imagine or early they have any teamname BUYKEY or something
2014-01-18 21:29
you just went full retard.NEVER go full retard ;) Olofmeister was very-famous 1.6 semi-pro player.He was usually coming to an event,placing several awesome shots and then nothing was heard from him for several months ;).But still he was a player,with adorable playstyle
2014-01-18 21:35
i'm about cs:go, fist 6 months he was noname in this game so full retard here you ^_^
2014-01-18 22:40
you just went retard.NEVER go full retard! Next time learn a decent level of English and come again ;).Because you are so bad,that i cant understand a shit... P.S. Why evryone from Ukraine are so bad ?Are you guys smoking something bad ?Chernobil maybe heuhuehuehue
2014-01-19 11:53
your answer, the fact that I was right?
2014-01-19 15:53
no i told you,that you are a retard and also that your english is awfull ;)
2014-01-19 16:52
it's not the answer and your words prove nothing, they are not funny, and all the more so they are stupid like you what you wright at the level 9 form, even with the fact that I don't know English, and yes,I'm using google translator even now(90%) naturally, I feel a little ashamed that I did not know the language and i'm trying to communicate with people on it but who are you???? discrimination at the national level makes you nit, bastard or just a youngster which doesn't understand the situation

oh ok. shoxie did actually had a pretty decent last part of 2013. but i cant see him reaching the top1 as long as gtr and forest are active. you need way much more than good aim and a good team to be up to their level.
2014-01-18 21:28
We will see, I think he will be number 1 in 2014.
2014-01-18 21:32
And he has the "much more". He can clutch, he can help his teammates as he said above. He can surpass the NIP duo for sure, if he keeps up the form of the last few months and even improves upon it.

yeah Im 1.6er and thought f0rest & gtr to be gods of cs but shox is just on another level.. he is a.... titan :P the plays he makes are so freaking smart and that aim, just wow.. its like having scream's hands attached to f0rest with gtr's brains or such.. fucking unbelievable.

2014-01-18 21:02
stop. just stop. this is cs go and btw theres great talent from both 1.6 and css. its obvious that theres a bigger talent pool for 1.6 as the scene was much bigger but this childish "1.6 players best, saucers suck blah" has to stop. as someone who actively started following cs scne with go and being bystander of that infatile conflict just wants to make me puke. if people don't pull themselves together and support cs go as a unit everyone will lose. on a side note: if shox had played for verygames from the beginning in this shape, the outcome of the top 3 wouldnt have been that obvious you gotta admit that.
2014-01-18 21:32
Don't mind the two retards above....your comment is cool I literally cried when f0rest left 1.6 and started playing "go"....but after a while I started liking "go" and I moved on. So people, "MOVE FCUKING ON"

Shox never made a bad match. Ever.
2014-01-18 21:18
Reality calls, shox low half year. Stop whining or I have to report you!
2014-01-18 21:21
2014-01-18 21:33
well, he has like 3 maps with under 10 kills in the last ~100, so he probably means he never has a "really" bad match, like 0 kills. but yea, whoever says he should be ahead of f0rest or gt are just blind fanboys
2014-01-18 23:32
some Shox can't be better then f0rest .. deal with it :)
2014-01-18 21:26
he is at the moment and will be through the 2014.. deal with it :)

2014-01-18 21:22
Well he has been let down by his past teams earlier in the year, where as gtr and f0rest have been in nip all along.

overrated might be a bit harsh for misplacing a player by one single rank

He is not :-)
2014-01-18 21:42
So you think he is top3 but for someone to say he is top2 is overrating him? Fuck logic right.
2014-01-19 06:50
hltv your amazing shox 3?
2014-01-18 21:16
1. Christopher 2. Patrik :D
2014-01-18 21:18
lol BULLSHIT
2014-01-18 21:18
"only joining VeryGames in May after the first part of the season had passed" read dudes #3 is totally fine. Hope he keeps this performance in 2014 whole year, Im sure he will jump higher and dethrone the NiP guys. shox monster :>
2014-01-18 21:20
Then it's pretty clear who is no. 1 & 2 :D 1: GeT_RiGhT 2: f0rest
2014-01-18 21:23
true dat!
2014-01-19 03:52
SHOXIE JESUS!
2014-01-18 21:26
Best player for me ! Totally deserved, wp, keep fragging and you will be #1 next year !
2014-01-18 21:28
Well desverd, could have been 2. But 2/3. whatever!
2014-01-18 21:31
1. GTR 2. F0REST
2014-01-18 21:31
Yeah ... that will be the order :) but still maybe next year 2)shox :D
2014-01-18 21:41
The most obvious top3 ever. f0rest is #2 based only on the first part of the year, since shox has been superior in the end of 2014 without any doubt. Still, totally fine rank despite 1 or 2 nonsenses imo
2014-01-18 21:32
1 GeT_RighT(so close in 2 last times in a row hltv.org/news/8053-top-20-players-of-201.. hltv.org/news/5990-top-20-players-of-201.. i think he deserved this 2 f0rest
2014-01-18 21:32
Unlucky he was stuck in an average team for half the year, but still, you can't put him above f0rest when it's considering the whole year.
2014-01-18 21:39
shox > forest
2014-01-18 21:40
forest and gtr top 2 lol
2014-01-18 21:41
He's only 21 and played CS 1.5, wtf?
2014-01-18 21:41
my thought also. but im 22 and i played 1.5 with schoolmates, i was 11 then (i think)

Obviously GTR then f0rest for 1 and 2. Sad to see since I still think shoxie performs better than both of them, though GTR and f0rest have achieved more in their teams in 2013. Maybe 2014 then!
2014-01-18 22:00
they are on same lvl :)

IF he can keep playing at this level... Norwegians have a bad habit of quitting / giving up after a month or two in a team.
2014-01-18 23:33
Many other norwegian players which is better then him. Overrated :p

like?
2014-01-19 00:33
Are you dumb? He's the best in Norway no doubt. You can't compare him to partynauts if that is what you're doing. They are good online, cENTRYZ is good online but even better on LAN. So no, there's not MANY better players then him. If he gets a decent team he'll rape like he did during CPH.
2014-01-19 00:35
Thats why he placed 8th or something or Norways biggest CSGO LAN? maak and rubino is better :p
2014-01-19 00:41
You obviously have no clue what you're talking about. 1 LAN with bad players on his team, and that's his fault? He had like 30 frags on the scene there if i remember correctly. How did maak and rubino do for then nationalteam? Yeah...not good. Rubino sucked the whole bylan(I watched their matches) Seems like you are jelly that such a young player is owning your scene.
2014-01-19 01:23
I am not jelly, just saying the fact. And on ByLAN he had not bad players :p
2014-01-19 01:26
leffa, rod & tacky was shit. 1 bad lan doesnt make you a bad player. maak played shit at dreamhack summer, does that make him shit? no you can ask anyone in norway and they'll tell you centryz is the best player. he needs to go international to see his whole potential.

ure too pissed off because of that,its just his opinion tbh i havent seen centryz play for a while so i say he sucks aswell until he proves on the big stages again
2014-01-19 02:54
ur just a bad troll
2014-01-19 03:08
i'd say Mystik will be famous :-P edit: or Mystic
2014-01-19 03:53
if you mean mystic, yeah he is good. up and comming player but have yet to prove himself on international lans

2014-01-18 22:46
So.. if Shox is the 3rd... what about f0rest and gtr (playing with nip 2 years and winning almost everything or delpan (playing alone with every team... always killing a lot)

2014-01-18 22:59
To watch shox play is so entertaining!
2014-01-18 23:02
forest and gtr 1. and 2.
2014-01-18 23:02
I don't trust him: starts with 1.5, moves to Source and barely touches 1.6. Something is off about this dude. But he's a good player, congratz! Anyway, top2: CS 1.6 POWA!
2014-01-18 23:10
Imagine he would have tried harder in 2010 with CS 1.6: We might have seen a team with shox + sixer + msx + Majer. That would have been awesome!
2014-01-19 04:59
Yeah, but I would add atLaNtis ;)
2014-01-19 14:31
+1 what a freak !!
2014-01-19 11:42
ye, lets dismiss him and call him weird because he prefers something other than you..

Well deserved. Shox is a complete player. HAD he been in VeryGames since the start of CSGO, he'd definetely have been number 1 on this list. Good job reaching 3rd, though.
2014-01-18 23:34
Totally deserved, amazing player.
2014-01-19 00:44
GTR or F0rest ... that´s the question

How the fuck did I came from watching shoxie's ace with 1v3 to watching 2 hours of CL Final, Barca vs Arcenal, 2006? Fuck, I'm just too high :D
2014-01-19 01:43
Ronaldinho was god then wasnt he?
2014-01-19 05:41
f0rest top1
2014-01-19 02:44
God... For jesus ! 1- GTR 2- Shoxie 3- f0rest That is the true :)
2014-01-19 02:46
just learn one thing bro, shoxie Jesus but f0rest GOD
2014-01-19 12:09
bring some proofs! JESUS, even if shox has very good second half of this year, in 2/3 last tournaments he played worse than f0rest and gtr, especially at dreamhack where in playoffs he didnt even reach 20 frags in any map
2014-01-19 12:22
wp shox!
2014-01-19 03:06
2. f0rest 1. GeT_RiGhT
2014-01-19 04:30
Nice! Next f0rest...
2014-01-19 04:48
centryz need kalle, tacky, hellzerk and prb guys who know how to compete on big level, newschool norge scene isn't bad but they are just inexperienced and they need much time until they get it.
2014-01-19 07:59
expected.i rly have to laugh at people who think that he should be 1/2... great player but there is no way that he should be before gtr or forest.

2014-01-19 12:06
Totally deserved! I mean I wanted to see him rank 1/2, but that wouldn't be fair, because during the year GTR and f0rest were better, but this is a result of being in second class teams like Imaginary!
2014-01-19 12:17
hmm, who left?! :ooo im so curious :oo
2014-01-19 12:43
my fav player! gj dude !
2014-01-19 13:13

nice! shox is a monster in every game
2014-01-19 14:53
lol @ people guessing the top 2 with random players. who else would be top 2 if neither get_right nor f0rest are placed yet?
2014-01-19 14:55
ITT: The same comment about 50 times.

Best player from source, will be 1st next year for sure. :)

2014-01-19 19:33
Feeling like GeT-RiGhT and f0rest will take the 1-2 spot
2014-01-19 19:34
shox no1 imo (and I'm a NiP-fan)
2014-01-19 21:42
will be in 2014 for sure, don't worry, 1.6ers getting old ;)
