Epsilon remove fxy0, add SIXER
Epsilon have announced that they have released their star player Joey "fxy0" Schlosser, replacing him with Christophe "SIXER" Xia.
Only two days before their trip to SLTV StarSeries XI Finals, where they will face LDLC, Titan and Na`Vi, Epsilon have announced a lineup change which saw the removal of their star AWPer Joey "fxy0" Schlosser due to a "difficult attitude in game".
fxy0 removed from Epsilon
To replace him they added former CS 1.6 star from teams like Millenium and eSahara, Christophe "SIXER" Xia. He was once 13th on our Top 20 of 2010, but as of now has no mentionworthy competitive CS:GO experience aside from local French tournaments.
"Although a brilliant player, the decision was taken unanimously after several attempts to contain his difficult attitude in game. We would like to thank fxy0 for his hand in many of our successful wins along the year.
This lead on to the difficult task to find a new 5th player, and we are extremely excited to announce the CS 1.6 legend Christophe “sixeR” Xia will be jumping in. With a strong desire to return and 100% commitment, we will give him the necessary tools for what we hope will be another brilliant professional gaming career."
Epsilon's new roster:
Lately the team has been playing with Arthur "pm" Guillermet as a stand-in for the official member Sf, but neither of them will be traveling to Kiev this week. Instead, a new stand-in will take the spot - SIXER's former longtime teammate Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli.
Epsilon at SLTV StarSeries XI Finals:
Epsilon are scheduled to meet Titan in the opening match at the CyberArena in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday, October 18th at 13:00. They are also currently taking part in Fragbite Masters Season 3, where they will meet myXMG in the lower bracket on Thursday, October 16th at 22:00.
It remains to be seen whether they will be able to retain the spot at DreamHack Winter as they are now down to only 2 members of the Epsilon squad that made it to quarter-finals at ESL One Cologne - Sf and GMX.
