The LDLC organization has officially dispensed of the services of the team, after its trio Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian and Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez accepted an offer from Titan.
Rumours have been going around the scene considering all three French teams for the past week, as VaKarM.net informed that the LDLC trio Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian and Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez would be joining Titan.
The team has now naturally fallen apart despite their top four finish at ESL One Cologne and a close semi-final with NiP, after they've been gradually showing better results over the last few months.
LDLC lineup has fallen apart despite a 3rd-4th placing at ESL One
It has already been confirmed by Titan only moments ago after LDLC and its manager Stéphan Euthine released a statement, showing their disappointment at the players' behavior, as the trio left without consulting the organization about their contracts' renewal:
"We are reeling from this incomprehensible decision by our players who we have supported so much. Another offer seduced three of our players even before LDLC tried to renegotiate the terms of the next season's contracts." said LDLC's manager Stéphan Euthine in the statement at LDLC.com.
"While the future seemed full of promise of partnerships with companies that would have allowed us to ramp up, we now have to face this choice that paralyzes us. We once again find that the French scene shows a lack of maturity on the job of a pro gamer."
This particular lineup has been representing LDLC's colours since early February and has a top eight finish from EMS One Katowice, top four from Copenhagen Games 2014 and ESL One Cologne and a gold medal from DreamHack Valencia to their name.
