madc leaves LDLC Blue

LDLC have announced on their website that Kevin "madc" Ducourtioux has stepped down from the Blue team.

The decision comes as a huge surprise as the French team had just won ESWC PGW - the biggest achievement in their history - after beating in the grand final LDLC's White roster, the more famous and storied of the two.

According to LDLC, Kevin "madc" Ducourtioux has stepped down from the roster "to join another team", who should be revealed soon. During his tenure in the Blue squad, he also helped the team to win Insalan and Epsilan 2015.

"This adventure is from far the best I ever experienced in CS," he said in a statement. "Full of motivation, ambition, achievements, but also some disappointments.

"I firmly believed until the last moment that we could win this Paris Games Week, and I knew that we had the potential. So that’s why I decided to play this last competition with my mates.

"Every single player on this team has great potential, yet unexploited, but my experience in this team during the last year get me to understand that we were too young and immature to make use of this potential, to pass a milestone to achieve success.

"It’s without regrets that I leave the team after this brilliant victory, and please don’t take this like a betrayal, but like a “good ending”, where we had to split in order to progress in the future."

LDLC are now on the lookout for a new fifth player for their Blue squad, which will attend Cap Arena #5, in Epône, from December 19-20. The team's lineup now looks as follows:

France Julien "PetitSkel" Marcantoni
France Charbel "BouLy" Naoum
France Guillaume "XpG" Veron
France David "Dewid" Thalien

there's no way they'll replace RpK, the most consistent player atm in Titan IMO.

Who cares about french subtop that can't achieve anything internationally and no top teams would pick them instead of bringing back retired players Ex6tenZ love you, nokappa
2015-11-06 19:13
oh No !, now they would suck .... like they weren't sucking before.

Lol'd at all those nova commenting saying that he is a nobody while the guy has insane potential and used to get flamed/accused of cheating when he was reking some T2 teams a few months back because the overdogs had alot of skins on them.

2015-11-07 10:35
LDLC Blue and White are the best French/Belgian team after Envy Us and Titan, so leaving the best subtop team to join "another team" mean obviously that he has been called by a better team. It can only be Titan or Envy Us. Otherwise why would you leave a team for a worst one ?
2015-11-06 21:00
Might be there will be a mix up between the two ldlc teams+ maniac coming in so i expect something like boddy toinou madc maniac and someone of the other ldlc players

He's a good guy and his mates never seemed like they really wanted to become pro or like they did everything to achieve it so i kinda understand. GL

didn't care then read statement. not bad, gl mate
2015-11-07 04:23
I read it like "macd" as in mcdonalds left LDLC Blue D:
2015-11-07 09:54
Obvious; Titan has shox calling (EnVy had shox calling before shox+smithzz left), madc is an AWPer, Maniac has the same role as Shox. Clearly, it's going to be Titan -shox -smithzz +Maniac +madc
