GMX joins forces with melty
Robin "GMX" Stahmer, who has been part of a match-fixing scandal with Epsilon at the beginning of the year, has joined forces with melty eSports Club.
At the end of January 2015, Robin "GMX" Stahmer was released from Epsilon, which incentivized the player to "blow the whistle" on his team, giving light to what became a match-fixing scandal.
GMX is ready to move on
After nearly eight months, the Frenchman has been given the chance in melty's lineup, who have tried their luck in the European pre-qualifiers for the next major, DreamHack Cluj, but were unable to pass round of 16.
The player himself took to Facebook to apologize to both his former teammates and the community, and shed a little more light on the move:
people that know me from before, know that I'm still currently banned, and thus until next Febuary. It seems like forever. For a CS fan like myself, this punishment has been hard on me. But I totally understand & respect the decisions that were taken against me. This forced withdrawal from the professional scene has allowed me to see where I'm at and I wanted, at the dawn of a new adventure, to extend my sincere apologies. Controlled by my emotions and animated by a spirit of revenge, I went way beyond the limits, and I disappointed a lot of people. I would like to apologize to all the CS:GO fans, to the community, and all the other people that were indirectly concerned with this story. I would also like to ask Uzzzi, B1GGY, fxy0 and ScreaM to accept my apology. I have understood now, and I regret this episode.
Today, I have a chance to move on, and leave this sad story behind me, I and wish wholeheartedly to prove to everyone that I'm determined to redeem myself. I will that I have changed through my results and behaviour and I hope that the community will be able to forgive me. I would like to thank Mistou, ALEX, Maidhen and Lambert for their trust and that they accept me despite my past. I'm going to give all I have and I am positive that we will be able to get good results. I would also like to that the melty eSport Club who are willing to give me another chance, and of course Bouygues Telecom for their support. I hope to see you soon with my new jersey!"
