fxy0 joins Playing Ducks

Playing Ducks have announced that they have secured the services of former Epsilon talent Joey "fxy0" Schlosser.

The French player has been out of action since the match-fixing scandal involving his Epsilon team, who lost an ESEA match on purpose to profit from weapon skin betting.

In addition to being released from Epsilon, Joey "fxy0" Schlosser and three of his team-mates were also suspended indefinitely from all Valve-sponsored events.


fxy0 returns in Playing Ducks 

Despite the fact that the ban will not be reviewed before 2016, fxy0 has been offered a return to the top by the hand of German side Playing Ducks, who will compete in xfunction Masters III and in the 99Damage League.

"I have a lot of confidence in our new player and I believe that he will be fitting in perfectly in our team," Manuel "SolEk" Zeindler told 99damage.de.

"We have not had much time to practice, but we are very motivated and looking forward to our next games with the new linep."

Playing Ducks' CS:GO team now consist of:

Switzerland Manuel "SolEk" Zeindler
Germany Felix "fel1x" Zech
Germany Christian "Rak" Hermenau-Puhlvers
Bosnia and Herzegovina Elvis "xelboW" Sobo
France Joey "fxy0" Schlosser

This community is filled with hatred for each other but as soon as a "pro" player does something wrong they forget so quickly. People involved with match fixing should be outcast by the community not embraced 6 months later.

Nice attitude to have. The option is there so of course they are going to do it? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. I'm not sure what humans you associate with but if that's your view of human nature then it's pretty distorted. Everyone else that bet money on them lost because they threw and everyone's all forgiving because he's good at counter strike.

People shouldn't bet lol. It's well known that gambling leads to corruption, and that these things are bound to happen. I'm not saying that we should be submissive allow it to happen. When he threw a match it was all honor system.

are you kidding me? i will start these lines with the statement "i don't have anything against fxy0 as a player or as a person, except the fact that he arranged a match and he got punished" i'm not a hater or a fanboy of him, but i will write this about him because he is the main and single example that we can judge at this moment. i don't think that this person is treated the way he should be treated, i mean, he fooled us and steal from his fans/community. it's not ok that he will be back in the pro scene. in my opinion, he should not be unbanned or accepted at lans. i will end this post by ask one question: why fxy0 is ok to play in 2016 and swag, dazed or some us players don't get the same treatment?

in this case you've mentioned, no, ofcourse not, but it's not the case of fxy0 or us guys, neither of them earned millions or hundreds. the difference is that us players 've earned more after the game. i'm not saying that they should not have been punished, it's the same immorality, after all, but i don't think that fxy0 should be forgiven and the us players not.

Very nice!!! It's time the pro scene gives Valve the finger just like they're doing to us. The community does not support them banning 'pro players' without salaries who had to throw to survive.
2015-07-24 01:40
Then fucking play better and win prize money. You don't need to throw, since it's cheating. Instead of losing just win. Ez pez But hes from France, so surrender is lifestyle. So i do understand.

2015-07-24 11:33
I see to much people hating on fxy0...cause they lost skinz on it xD ..Well tell you the truth everytime top tear1 loses a game you lose skinz and that team is bad for you / selling matches. But the ture is that you are retared and you don't wanna bet when you are a rage/toxic person. Done never bet never lose. Or just some people can't beat the fact that they lost skins and they cry :D
