Maniac returns in Unity

Former Titan member Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez has formally announced his return to competitive action on a new team called Unity.

The 26-year-old had announced in June his intention to play competitively again after a five-month spell as coach of EnVyUs.

Joining him in this new adventure are three Danish players - Casper "cadiaN" Møller, Jesper "TENZKI" Plougmann and Nicolai "glace" Jensen - and Estonian talent Kevin "HS" Tarn, who raised eyebrows during his time on Publiclir.se/CSGO2x.


Maniac's team seek an organisation

The team have decided to take the name of Unity until an organisation is found after playing in online tournaments as TBA, with their first offline appearance just one month away as they will compete at Power-LAN alongside the likes of Astralis, dignitas and X.

"When I left EnVyUs I openly claimed that all I wanted was to come back as a player," Quiquerez wrote in a statement. "Today I am very happy and proud to be part of this new roster. We all come from different paths, but we are now united to write a new chapter in our careers.

"We quickly realised that the strength of our team lies in our diversity and our balance. Some of us have played at the biggest competitions and know what it is like to compete against the very best. We also have new talents, young and "hungry" players with true firepower that want more than anything to make a name for themselves.

"Nevertheless we don't fool ourselves. Our goal is to become a major team but we know it will require a tremendous amount of work and we are all ready to sacrifice what's needed in order to reach our goals.

"This is why, after the holiday break, we will have a five-days bootcamp in Copenhagen. We will build the foundations of the team and also prepare for Power-LAN.

"We are also currently in the playoffs of both HitBox Challenge #2 and GG Masters, and we are looking to attend as many events and play in as many online competitions as we can.

"For now we will go by the name Unity, and we are looking for an organisation to support. All interested organisations can contact our manager, Hampus, at the following e-mail address: Hampus.joh@outlook.com.

"We would like to thank you all for your support. We will do our best to live up to it."

Unity's roster consists of:

roflmao Au dessus des vieux volcans Glisse des ailes sous les tapis du vent Voyage, voyage Eternellement De nuages en marécages De vent d'Espagne en pluie d'équateur Voyage, voyage Vole dans les hauteurs Au dessus des capitales Des idées fatales Regarde l'océan Voyage, voyage Plus loin que la nuit et le jour Voyage Dans l'espace inouï de l'amour Voyage, voyage Sur l'eau sacrée d'un fleuve indien Voyage Et jamais ne reviens Sur le Gange ou l'Amazone Chez les blacks, chez les sikhs, chez les jaunes Voyage, voyage Dans tout le royaume Sur les dunes du Sahara Des îles Fidji au Fujiyama Voyage, voyage Ne t'arrêtes pas Au dessus des barbelés Des coeurs bombardés Regarde l'océan Voyage, voyage Plus loin que la nuit et le jour Voyage Dans l'espace inouï de l'amour Voyage, voyage Sur l'eau sacrée d'un fleuve indien Voyage Et jamais ne reviens Au dessus des capitales Des idées fatales Regarde l'océan Voyage, voyage Plus loin que la nuit et le jour Voyage Dans l'espace inouï de l'amour Voyage, voyage Sur l'eau sacrée d'un fleuve indien Voyage Et jamais ne reviens
