mSx returns in XenoDragons

January 3rd, 2016 20:46

Former emuLate member Mickael "mSx" Cassisi has returned to action in a brand new team called XenoDragons.

Mickael "mSx" Cassisi was widely regarded as one of the finest talents the French Counter-Strike scene has produced, but he has yet to play CS:GO competitively after retiring from gaming in March 2012 to focus on his job.

The pinnacle of the 27-year-old's career is undoubtedly his title win with emuLate at WCG 2007, where the French team defied the odds and sensationally won the crown after beating NoA in the final.

After almost four years on the sidelines, mSx has now been tempted out of retirement by a brand new team called XenoDragons, in which he will reunite with former emuLate teammates Mathieu "MaT" Leber and Jeremy "ioRek" Vuillermet.

mSx returns to action 

MaT will also need time to find his feet in the game as he has been out of action since 2013, when he had a brief spell with eXtensive, who would go on to join ioRek was part of the Clan-Mystik team who won ESWC 2013 over VeryGames but he became inactive in the Fall of 2014 before joining Titan as an analyst

Rounding out the roster are two other well-known figures from the French scene, Benjamin "drizzer" Charnet, who has played for teams like aAa, Clan-Mystik and Awsomniac, and Christopher "YiiKoN" Cavecchi, formerly of Dimension4 and Millenium.

XenoDragons have the following roster:

France Mickael "mSx" Cassisi
France Mathieu "MaT" Leber
France Jeremy "ioRek" Vuillermet
France Benjamin "drizzer" Charnet
France Christopher "YiiKoN" Cavecchi

Wasn't he caught cheating in the past?
2016-01-03 20:48
around 2005 2006 ppl tought he was cheating when he was playin for extent but if he was he never got caught.
2016-01-03 20:49
He proved himself on LAN. Played better
2016-01-03 21:15
ioRek to play here - more signs of ex6tenz coaching?
2016-01-03 20:48
What? ioRek wasen't Titan's coach, Niak is.
2016-01-03 20:54
he was their first coach, niak is the manager
2016-01-03 21:05
Hmm, sure? Niak is the guy standing behind them at lans
2016-01-04 13:17
yeah, i even remember lurppis posting something about how iorek isn't the best choice for the coach role. niak could be the coach now, i'm not sure about that
2016-01-04 15:19
I thought Niak was the coach, lel. So, they had a coach that they didn't go to lan with. Weird

still remember his deagle from 1.6 days .. gl
2016-01-03 20:49
I remember on de_train cArn and fnatic got rekt with his deagle and then he said "wow you're so good".
2016-01-03 21:43
true lol, but that fnatic team would only lose to players like msx and neo, who on a good day could take a whole team alone basically.
2016-01-03 22:14
I can't believe you even mention mSx and neo in the same sentence unless it's something in the lines of "NEO is an incredible player and mSx mediocre at best". mSx is by no means a "legend" 'nor will he ever be. Being good in a span of literally one month doesn't make you a good player. mSx was part of the biggest tournament-fluke in modern Counter-Strike history - nothing else.
2016-01-03 23:32
mSx good for 1 month ahahahah good joke. You have 0 cs knowledge, stop.
2016-01-04 01:15
Are you really serious when you say that ? Most clueless user here if you really are. You must be a kid acting like you know something ..
2016-01-04 01:43
Trust me, I know "something".
2016-01-04 02:15
you must be new for the scene userid: 465304 obv u are
2016-01-04 08:25
All you did was countering my personal opinion with yours, there's not much I can say to that. As long as mSx played he was always on top, same as neo. Obviously the PGS core was much better and tighter than emL's. neo is to cs what maradona is to football, but that doesn't mean other players weren't close skillwisely. "mSx was part of the biggest tournament-fluke in modern Counter-Strike history - nothing else." If you REALLY did follow mSx and emL (or cs in general) at the time when they won WCG, you wouldn't even write that.
2016-01-04 19:49

Best 1.6 french players, oldschool, won against NoA at 2007 final WCG as total outsiders.
2016-01-04 14:15
I cannot believe the amount of people who categorize mSx as a "legend". It is absolutely stunningly stupid. The only memorable thing about mSx is the fact that he was a part of the biggest tournament-fluke in modern CS-history. Comparing him to the likes of NEO, SpawN and so on is utterly retarded and anyone with the least knowledge of 1.6 and before are laughing their pants off reading the stupid comments here. As a lover of former CS-games, I feel ashamed reading comments here. As should all.
2016-01-03 23:41
True... winning one 'major' in 1.6 doesn't make you a 1.6 legend. He was very, very skilled and won one of the most important tournaments of 2007, but I wouldn't call him a legend by any means.
2016-01-03 23:46
how come winning wcg was a fluke?enlighten me because winning against noa in a bo3 is by no means a fluke wtff
2016-01-03 23:53
you dont know the definition of fluke then, because it was clearly one.
2016-01-04 01:36
For sure he's not a legend like neo or forest who've been performing top class for so long but at his peak he was one of the most skilled player 1.6 has ever seen.
2016-01-04 00:09
Stop trying to act like you know something, mSx can be considered by some as a counter strike legend legitimatly. The thing memorable about him was the level of play he attained. And for all the retards here who would be tempted to believes what he says, i redirect you here : Good read.
2016-01-04 01:47
As a former frequent reader of both FragBite and GotFrag, I read the article long time ago, and it's a complete joke. Thorin has a obsession with the greatest players of shitty nations wherein the general skill-level is horrible. He wrote a similar article on SeDaN for instance.
2016-01-04 02:08
mSx was a player who was on the very top of the french cs for what, 7 years? Like, he almost single-handedly carried his teams to some pretty awesome upsets, sure, he is not a legend like the ones of neo f0rest etc, but you simply cannot deny the absolute monster he was. Most people consider him a legend in the sense of him being the greatest player of his nation by so many straight years, and skill-wise comparable to some of the best players in the world. Does his winnings make him a legend? No. But you are taking the "legend" people write wayyyyy too literally. Not to mention your almost hating on the guy for no reason, french 1.6 scene was far from the best, but they had some really good, solid players neverthless.
2016-01-04 15:12
best french 1.6 player, so a legend in france at least
2016-01-04 11:18
best french cs player ever
2016-01-04 00:00
Riiight If you dont include shoxie or RpK ofc RpK - best css Shox - best csgo
2016-01-04 00:47
the fact that u even try to compare rpk to mSx says alot about long uve been around in counterstrike. msx is twice the player. shox/kennyS might be there one day
2016-01-04 02:04
Or maybe it says something about your lack of knowledge regarding the Source-scene? RpK, for instance, was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more dominant than mSx was.
2016-01-04 02:24
thats like comparing some paralympics 100m winners to usain bolt in degree of difficulty
2016-01-04 03:05
As a matter of fact, that comparison can easily be made. It's about domination and your skill-level relative to your competitors. Your comparison is flawed; they didn't even play the same game, so you can't say "he was twice the player" - especially not when RpK is one of the greatest Source-players of all time. mSx does not even come close to that a similar title in 1.6.
2016-01-04 05:07
RpK was one of the best source players together with shox.
2016-01-04 12:49
u both dont get the comparison, ure comparing some source players to the best 1.6 players. thats hilarious. thats like saying Marta is as good as footballer as Messi, cuz both of them won player of the year awards. they are still not even close in terms of skills even tho they play the same game. stop overrating this source shit to 1.6 who got played for over a decade on top level /e: PS: thats not even some flame towards rpk, i like him as a player in csgo and ive never watched him play source.
