SIXER joins EnVyUs Academy

Former EnVyUs member Christophe "SIXER" Xia will further his career in the organisation's academy squad, the team's manager has confirmed.

The 26-year-old's future had been up in the air after he was benched to make way for Ali "⁠hAdji⁠" Haïnouss, who was promoted from EnVyUs' academy squad.

On Twitter, EnVyUs Academy manager Loïc "NEOSKAI" Potages wrote that he hopes the team will provide Christophe "⁠SIXER⁠" Xia with the conditions "to unleash the beast again". The player faced a wave of criticism during his Envy tenure as he failed to reach the same heights he had during his 1.6 career.

SIXER has been moved to EnVyUs Academy

The announcement comes less than two weeks after a report from Flickshot.fr revealed that EnVyUs were ready to listen to offers for their academy squad, created in April 2017

The French team, who are scheduled to play their first match in ESEA MDL on Wednesday, against Spirit, now have:

France Lambert "⁠Lambert⁠" Prigent
France Audric "⁠JaCkz⁠" Jug
France Valentin "⁠VKLL⁠" Bartolomei
France Julien "⁠PetitSkel⁠" Marcantoni
France Christophe "⁠SIXER⁠" Xia

Not even that bad of a player, he's just not an awper in GO. It was like Scream main awping... Sixer would've had a 1.00+ rating if he was rifling instead of awping.
2018-02-13 23:56

Sixer was main awper the whole time before he went to envyus to rifle. If you look at 1.6 stats and stats before he was in tier 2 team he was the best awper in terms of player stats.
2018-02-14 01:35
3 replies
I literally said he was better at rifling in GO, I don't care about 1.6 in regard to Sixer. 1.6 awping has almost no relevancy to GO awping. 1.6 awping involved a lot of smooth movement, CSGO is way more aim based.

1 or 2 veteran players to play alongside 3 or 4 up and comers seems ideal to me. Not sure what Sixer specifically can do, but as a general idea I dom't think it's bad.

After so many years of playing he can not just become a good AWPer. Look at all the top snipers - they revealed themselves within their first matches, you either have that ability to control your AWP crosshair and move it fast and precisive or you do not, and SIXER do not.

Man this community is cancer. Pretty sure the idea behind academy teams is for players to better their game and work on their flaws if they're willing to better themselves and perhaps one day join the elite team. Like literally not 1 hater here is better than him, yet you all seem so engaged on demoralizing a player looking to reinvent themselves.

Most NA players are worse than Sixer, sad but true. I know he is fucking bad, but id rather have him than shahzam for instance... or JDM.

he is compareable too JDM but JDM is americano so an american team would rather have him for communication, and dont fucking compare SHAHZAM to sixer lol. Shahzam is actually one of the better awpers in the world, top 10 for sure.
