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.
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:
Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey
Gordon "Sf" Giry
Robin "GMX" Stahmer
