shox: "Teams will focus on us more"

We are closing out our coverage of ECS Season 1 Finals with a winning interview, featuring Richard "shox" Papillon, who we questioned about the grand final and what G2's win means prior to the upcoming Major.

G2 came out victorious from a convincing two-map grand final, where they took revenge on Luminosity after losing to them at ESL Pro League last month.

We grabbed Richard "shox" Papillon for the winning interview, where he shares a few details about the grand final and touches on the next Major, ESL One Cologne.

You can find the rest of HLTV.org's videos by going to our YouTube channel here.

I am really impressed by G2!
2016-06-27 00:23
Ofcourse you are! Maybe cause they are the biggest cheaters in the scene atm? Maye cause shox has AT LEAST 10 suspicious clips ONLY IN THIS EVENT? Every single time LG went to a bombsite as T there was 4 CTs holding it, how is that even possible?
2016-06-27 00:29
apparently it is
2016-06-27 00:30
everytime? go make a video about it because it wasn't everytime moron. Was probably like 4 rounds
2016-06-27 00:32
I think they simply deserved, they read Lg's plays every round on Dust II... And won. LG failed a lot and G2 took advantage of that

Both teams played very well on dust2, on overpass it was pure domination, nothing more sadly, I expected it to go to a third map originally but when I saw the map pick I realised a 2-0 might happen.
2016-06-27 01:07
Me too, i wasn't expecting that nuke. To be fair, I think the map pick was terrible for LG, Dust II was OK because LG would obviously ban cache só the worse map after cache was Dust II. Then even After the brutal victory over Fnatic on overpass from G2, they picked overpass... Could pick train so g2 would ban cbble and LG would ban nuke. Overpass being the third map should be the best choice, because in (g2) 1x0 (lg) situation the pressure is on LG's shoulders, but 1x1 the pressure is on both teams and the result could be veeery different

s1.dmcdn.net/fCut/1280x720-xTF.jpg this picture makes me so hard the look in Smithzz eye, you just KNOW they banged shox is known to be THE most hung guy in the french scene, possibly one of the biggest in the world, his cock has been described as "like an evian bottle", with gargantuan thickness that would rival shane diesal and shorty mac. i'm estimating his seize to be AT LEAST 8.5" bone pressed, with OVER 7" of girth, he would have absolutely destroyed smithzz pussy. they would have spent hours on foreplay, getting smithzz just wet enough just so he can take it. i can just imagine smithzz begging for it, with shox barely able to force it past the knob, and mithzz moaning and squirming, demanding him to force it in deeper, smithzz would have orgamsed within seconds of taking the entire length, being filled and stretched right up his cervix, his g spot getting pounded to the rhythm of a bongo, his orgasm would have been powerful, with his vaginal muscles clamping down on shox's throbbing monstrosity, smithzz whole body quivering in euphoria i bet smithzz still yodels his clit to the memory of it, basking in his humidity

10/10 recommended read. So descriptive, my minds eye can really visualise shoxcock. HLTV cuntfirmed best post 2016

At the major they don't need to focus on G2 much. There are 7 maps that can be played, and G2 seem to have only 1 consistently strong map, which is overpass. You can say that they also play well on cache and dust2, but they lost cache 9-16 to NiP @ ELEAGUE group final (one of the most important match cuz they needed to win it to reach the playoff stage), and dust2 1-16 to mousesports @ ESL Cologne main qualifier (not that important since they still had 2 more opponents - Gambit and Cloud9, but 1-16?!), so I wouldn't say they're very strong on those maps. What else? cbble - 6-16 12-16 to Liquid @ ECS. train - 3-16 to NiP @ ELEAGUE group final, 10-16 to Gambit @ ESL Cologne main qualifier. mirage - 4-16 to Flipsid3, it was online and G2 bans it everytime since then. nuke - only 2 matches played (OpTic and Liquid), both started on the CT side, both won, on the T side they took 3/5 rounds vs OpTic and 5/12 rounds vs Liquid, I'd not say it's really impressive, God knows how it would end up if they started on the T side... So, what have they got? Strong maps: overpass. Decent maps: dust2, cache, nuke. Bad maps: cbble, train, mirage. At major they can ban only 2 maps, having 3 weak ones, it will be a big problem for them, and they have only a week to try to solve it. I'd say their chances to fail are big enough.

This time they have nothing to lose. They are expected to be eliminated in g.s + they won a event before a major so they couldnt care less about the major. G2, LG, fnatic and FaZe have pretty much the same map-pool, and if G2 actually can make the 1/4, they have their way to the final.
2016-06-27 01:04
Shox turn on ur GOD mode... really best player in the history when play serious!
