LDLC.com, who had been without a male CS:GO team since August, re-enter the scene with a bang and will most invest a lot more money this time around to make this one of the world's strongest sides.
"We now enter a new dimension because we can finally call ourselves professional," Dan "apEX" Madesclaire told LDLC.com's website.
"Marty (LDLC manager) made us an offer to recreate the core of our old lineup (Maniac, Happy and myself) but this time with a professional set-up.
"We had longed for that. That is sort of the Holy Grail. When you are a gamer, this is the reward for years of hard work.
"To complete this team we chose KQLY, who is one of the biggest hopes in the scene nowadays, he has a lot of skill and the desire to learn.
"Lastly, we picked Uzziii. Having a person like him is very important. You may not see him as a star, but is not players who are very famous that win matches for you, but players who can turn a match around and who have nerves of steel."
LDLC.com's first event will be the EMS One Katowice as the French team hold the spot that originally belonged to Recursive.
LDLC.com now have:
Vincent "Happy" Cervoni
Kévin "Uzzziii" Vernel
Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez
