LDLC confirm new team
LDLC.com have confirmed on their website the creation of a new Counter-Strike team, led by Belgian veteran Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans.
LDLC were looking for new opportunities in the Counter-Strike scene after parting ways with both White and Blue rosters in the aftermath of the departures of Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon and Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro to EnVyUs and G2, respectively.
As reported last week by French website vakarm.net, LDLC's new squad will be led by Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans, who was assessing his options after being left out of G2's active lineup.
Ex6TenZ to lead the new LDLC roster
Joining the Belgian veteran are two ex-members of LDLC White, Antoine "to1nou" Pirard and Matthieu "matHEND" Roquigny, plus one former member of the Blue squad, Charbel "BouLy" Naoum. Completing the roster will be Alex "ALEX" McMeekin, who has played for teams like webSPELL, melty and Platinium in the past.
"Here I am, involved in a new project : moving from top to subtop and joining four young and talented players in LDLC," Droolans said in a statement.
"It is a big challenge, and I do not know what is going to happen. Even if getting kicked is never good news, I think I needed something different at this point in my career.
"I always enjoyed playing with young players. Usually, it was one or two, but today it is four!
"It is a big challenge, the unknown, but one thing will never change: I will give my best for the team."
LDLC, who will be competing this weekend in the second online pre-qualifier for the European Minor Championship, at DreamHack Tours, now have:
