LDLC have announced that they have secured the services of Platinium-eSports' CS:GO squad.
The announcement comes just 72 hours after LDLC ventured into CS:GO again by signing Awsomniac, who are taking part in the ESL Major League.
LDLC have now decided to pick up a second CS:GO team in the form of Platinium-eSports, who rose to prominence when they defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas 16-10 during the group stage of ESWC 2014.
Platinium's team join LDLC
After the event, the players decided to go their separate ways, only to get back together at the end of January with Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon as their new fifth player instead of Brandon "Storen" Valembois.
"It is a great pleasure to join LDLC," Matthieu "matHEND" Roquigny said. "It is the first time that we are part of a professional structure, and this can only be beneficial for us.
"I would like to thank LDLC for trusting young players and for giving us a real chance to grow with these great conditions.
"I would also like to thank Platinium and also all the people who follow and support us."
The biggest issue LDLC could have with this new team is Matthieu "matHEND" Roquigny's VAC ban, which, according to him, was triggered after someone hacked his Steam account.
The French player and Boris "bobbY" Sanh have both contacted Valve regarding this matter and hope that their bans will be lifted soon.
LDLC now have the following two teams:
|LDLC White||LDLC Blue|
|Matthieu "matHEND" Roquigny||Kevin "madc" Ducourtioux|
|Simon "Fuks" Florysiak||Charbel "BouLy" Naoum|
|Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro||David "Dewid" Thalien|
|Antoine "to1nou" Pirard||Guillaume "XpG" Veron|
|Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon||Julien "PetitSkel" Marcantoni|
