Epsilon bring in fxy0

July 21st, 2014 20:06

Epsilon star Richard "shox" Papillon has revealed that Joey "fxy0" Schlosser has been recruited to replace Valentin "mistou" Balbastro.

DreamHack Valencia has made its first victim as Epsilon announce a roster change just 48 hours after the Spanish event, where the French team came in second place following a 1-2 loss to LDLC.com in the grand final.

The defeat came has a heavy blow to the former Clan-Mystik side, who were hoping to scoop the big prize after defeating HellRaisers in the semi-finals.

mistou released from Epsilon

In a bid to scale greater heights in the future, Epsilon have parted company with Valentin "mistou" Balbastro, who had been under criticism of late following some sub-par displays.

To replace the ex-Mistral man, Epsilon's choice fell on Joey "fxy0" Schlosser, a former member of WARMAKER and We Got Game who will take on the sniper role.

"Despite a really good performance a DH Valencia last weekend, it seemed to us that something was missing in our team to become the best: a sniper," Papillon wrote on Facebook.

"Mistou has been doing well since he joined the team but unfortunately we think that we need something more to continue to progress. That's why today we are bringing in "fxy0", who will be our main sniper.

"I wish the best to Valentin "mistou" Balbastro. I enjoyed playing alongside him and I hope to see him soon in a good team."

Schlosser will be making his first appearance for Epsilon tonight as the French team will take on ESG! in the SLTV StarSeries league.

Epsilon now have:

France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey
France Gordon "Sf" Giry
France Robin "GMX" Stahmer
France Richard "shox" Papillon

He is not even trolling
2014-07-21 20:56
you actually think he is 100x better than kenny?
2014-07-21 23:11
Time will tell, '100x better' was just an exaggeration. To me he is at least as good as kenny.
2014-07-21 23:16
And you are basing this statement on...? A few online games from months ago.
2014-07-21 23:18
Months ago ? Nope, he actually played with safe.gaming for quite a bit (beginning of this year).
2014-07-21 23:27
"he actually played with safe.gaming for quite a bit (beginning of this year)." ...hence "months ago"
2014-07-21 23:39
hence "many many many many weeks ago"

2014-07-23 20:52
It's not because someone isn't in the front of the big stage everytime that he can't be as good a starplayer like kennyS. If you'd have followed the french scene, thing you didn't do (which I don't mind in the end just don't talk if you have no clue), fxy0 is just an extremly good player. He played with the former lineup WGG with Happy & co. He's as good on lan aswell if not better. Not matter what team he played in he always carried REALLY hard. The thing is that this guy is weird as fuck and is a real douche, that's why he didn't have the chance to show his talent to the world If I could say.
2014-07-22 17:37
I am aware that he's a very good player, but still, there aren't many (if any at all) that are on the same level as kenny and guardian. I know he played a lot for the last few months of 2013 and looking at the stats available on HLTV, he has only had a rating above '1.00' 12 games out of 23. I have watched him play in most of those games and yes he is good, his style is good, he is a good player, but saying his is at least better than kennyS is so dumb. If not for his mediocre rating, then surely for his tiny sample size of games. Only 23 games on record and people are claiming he is better than kenny is foolish..
2014-07-22 19:18
"Only 23 games on record and people are claiming he is better than kenny is foolish.. " You don't get it, people who are saying that follow the french scene, and know what he is capable of. He has only 23 games on hltv so therefore peopel aren't basing these words on that lol. Every french will tell you that this guy has as much talent as kennyS (saying more is untrue i'll give you that). But he's like the douchebag version of kennyS, unfortunately for him.
2014-07-22 19:43
From where I'm standing, I believe if the games are worth mentioning, they'd be on HLTV records. He is very talented, and may be a star in the French scene, but that's barely worth mentioning now that he is in a team that will be challenging Europe. I just don't see how people can even compare the two, kenny has had scores just like fxy0, but A LOT more. He has performed insanely multiple times at huge European LANs, and crushed the scene with great individual performances whilst playing for Clan-Mystik. Even if fxy0 has been great in the French scene recently, the two just don't compare.
2014-07-22 19:52
Why do u keep sayimng recently? This is extremely annoying. Fxy0 is well known for years and even before kennyS even did his 1st css lan.. In csho he played for different teams such at 3dmax and wGG, warmaker,img nd so on. So stop saying clueless shit please
2014-07-23 07:03
Markeloff is the best AWPer of all time, so he is the best AWPer in the world! That sentence would be true by your logic. Ofc I am saying "recently", just because he was good before kenny played, it does not mean he is better than kennyS as of right now. Why did you think I was comparing the two over their entire careers? lol. I am talking about right now, and kennyS is better, no question. And why do you keep mentioning his past teams? I am fully aware of his past teams and recent career.
2014-07-23 19:48
Because you're saying he's been good recently while he's been good forever. Since the begining of cs:go he's a beast, that's it. "Markeloff is the best AWPer of all time, so he is the best AWPer in the world!" Don't be a kid, markeloff is shit in csgo since the begining. foxy0 is like 100 times better than this guy, don't even mention him. He showed his skills tonight vs HR once again. I hope he will not act like a dick and make the team split so he can show what he is really capable of. So clueless guys like you start to shut up.
2014-07-23 20:08
pls for your own sake, stop with the insults. Have you been thinking we were talking about an overview of his career or something? Because I was simply saying that the people saying he is better than kennyS are wrong. I couldn't care less if he was the best or the worst player before last year. We only need to look at the last 6-12 months in order to tell if he is currently better than another player. I was poking fun of you when I said that "Markeloff is the best AWPer of all time, so he is the best AWPer in the world!" but it just seems you didn't understand what I was talking about, maybe because I didn't make myself clear enough? Yeah sure, he showed and impressive performance HR, but you can't defend people saying he is better than kenny just because of this game, aha. That's crazy..
2014-07-23 20:18
imo kennys>foxy0 in term of skillcielling but foxy0 is more consitent than him, also a better rifler. I didn't insult you, except if you would say that shut up is an insult, therefore I'm sorry I guess. We will see what futur bring to us, enjoy the few moments of foxy0 because he will be kicked quite soon, as always :-)
2014-07-23 20:21
but how can you tell fxy0 is more consistent? HLTV stats say quite the opposite, and even if you do follow the French scene, it really isn't the same compared to the global scene, which is where he will be playing right now. Whereas kenny has had one sub-1.00 event in the last dozen or so. btw, you said "So clueless guys like you start to shut up."
2014-07-23 20:27
As I said if shut up is an insult then I'm sorry, but imo it's not. foxy0 have made like 10 team on cs:go and HARDCARRIED them everytime, but ending being kicked due to his behavior. Like he literally dropped 30 frags per game. On his normal games he's more consistent than kennyS at hitting awp shots BUT since he didn't attend any international event yet, we will have to see if it's true aswell offline. foxy0 has 1.19 rating on hltv aswell as kennyS, can u stop with that please?
2014-07-23 20:34
kenny did the same when he played for CM, only difference was he was playing against the best teams EU had to offer. Good point about international events, how can anyone compare him to kenny when he hasn't even attended? His 1.19 rating comes from about 20 games on HLTV's database. This is such a small sample size it's debatable whether one should even use this as a reference. Kenny has a 1.19 rating from hundreds of games. This is incredibly hard to do. btw, you said "So clueless guys like you start to shut up."
2014-07-23 20:47
Clueless ins't an insult, and you're the one using these hltv statistics from the 1st comment you made lol.. That's I said stop using these stats against him if only 10 games are played or so, rofl... Btw awesome perf from foxy0 tonight :-)
2014-07-23 20:50
ofc I am using HLTV stats, I don't know the sources to get all the matches he's played, but like I said, if they are just some domestic battles (excluding Titan and other top French teams) then they aren't even relevant. Playing domestically and internationally is different. Yeah it was a good performance, reminds me of kenny's performances against NiP/VP/Na'Vi. If he keeps playing like this then ofc he could arguable be as good as kenny, but that will take a long time with many more games to be played first and international LAN's to be attended, and that won't happen overnight. In the mean time, just accept that kenny >> fxy0.
2014-07-23 20:57
Well kenny>fxy0 on lan isn't debatable since fxy0 didn't attend any events, we can only assume right? Online, I desagree, watch and enjoy mate :-)
2014-07-23 21:00
So where do you personally draw the line for number of games needed against top EU teams online before you can compare him with another active player? If someone has played one game and got >2.00 rating, would you say they are the best player in the world? The number of games kenny has played against top international teams dwarfs that of fxy0's, who has played <50.
2014-07-23 21:04
Well I told you he was insane before that game and guess what? about 80 frags vs Hr on one best of three. I know it because I know it, just enjoy the show.
2014-07-23 21:06
So... 3 maps is your answer? I guess I now know what kind of person I've been dealing with this entire time.
2014-07-23 21:08
Ask every french player you know, they will tell you the same as me. I cant prove shit since he did play 3 maps man, what you want me to say ffs.
2014-07-23 21:10
World MOI 
I'll tell u, i'm a french player and i really think that fyxo could be one of the best sniper, as kenny, but i must agree with grund. Right now, we just don't have seen enough of him against "top" teams. So, for now, i'm saying kenny>, even if i enjoy much more the style of fyxo. We just need to wait a bit to have something to compare :) Have a nice day
2014-07-25 15:51
So he's basically the french jOELZ?
2014-07-23 21:11
No because he attends lan lol. And jOELZ behavior in the team isn't terrible, is it?

2014-07-23 21:21
Im not trolling he's really an amazing awper now Im sure shox will never leave epsilon cuz they will start winning
2014-07-21 22:17
fxyo always come with a lots of problems. Disband or kick inc.
2014-07-21 21:17
Yeah but he is a real douche
2014-07-21 21:57
Actually Right . Fxy0 carry a lot of subtop teams , and ofc got kicked because he fixe higher objective than finishing top 5 at a french lan . Meanwhile on several online league he manage to outplay guardian and numbers of great awper . For once he got his chance to play in a team of his calibre . Really good moove from Epsilon ,(ofc you dont know him ) but he will show you how good at awp he is
2014-07-22 01:47

2014-07-21 20:26
yeah it was only good the way verygames used it, the occasional very aggressive awp to surprise the opponent (especially on CT)
2014-07-21 20:28
Even in VG, SmithzZ was stepping it up big time as an awper, since KennyS wasn't here anymore. Shox was awping only when they were already winning most of the time. In my opinion one of the best team chemistry was achieved with the Shox line-up in VG, and all players could perform at the maximum of their abilities. Even Ex6tenZ was fragging more during the Shox era. They ruined it with their damn gaming house...

how good was mistou? I wasn't able to watch him play much. I wonder if -kennyS +mistou could help Titan. It's clear that kennys doesn't work with them, and smithz could go back to awping which he was doing well. but since i haven't watched mistou i don't know if he's good enough to help titan beat nip/vp/navi/ibp
2014-07-21 20:47

Troll? Mistou is a good player but he hasn't the level to play in a "top" team, still a long way to go. He needs to improve in a lot of points and, obviously, Espislon doesn't have time for that, i mean we'll have big tournaments soon and i, and most of people who have seen him played, don't think that mistou can really become a TOP player, at least not in the next few months.

This is why NiP will remain on the top, they won't ever kick teammates for failing a lan. The rest of the orgs will be tryhard midgets compared to them, no matter who they bring in.
2014-07-21 20:52
it seems like they kicked him because they want a primary awper without wasting shox's rifling ability. as the last one to join the team, it makes sense that he was dropped. Sounds like they just didn't pick the right type of player to begin with.
2014-07-21 21:02
nice fxy0 is a carrier but I hope he doesn't get mad too often now
2014-07-21 20:53

2014-07-21 21:08
1) I dont think so hltv.org/?pageid=181&eventid=1424&gameid.. 2) GMX is also the IGL
2014-07-21 21:10
Wow fuks is the next rising star !
2014-07-21 22:11
Not even close GMX is a pro, mistou is bottom fragging every game.
2014-07-21 21:12
i saw that in DHV
2014-07-21 21:22
Fxyo is the kind of player who carries his team from time to time. It s a good change imo. Still hoping for Fxyo to fix his attitude now he reached a top team.
2014-07-21 21:19
is he one of the guys that "never do mistakes" ? :D
2014-07-21 22:46
Do you suggest that he would actually be german ?
2014-07-21 23:04
aaahhh.. stop with that FRA vs GER stuff pls :D just wanted to know whats wrong with his attitude
2014-07-21 23:11
He is sometimes arguing too much with teammates. You know, pushing the arguments to the limit.
