Maniac announces retirement

MIRAA
May 9th, 2018 17:54

LDLC member Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez has announced that he has decided to retire as a professional player.

In a Twitlonger post, Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez explained that this was "a very emotional and well-thought decision", with which he now "feels at peace".

The announcement comes just hours after a report from Flickshot.fr revealed that Maniac was contemplating retirement, with Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon following the Swiss out of the door in LDLC. The duo are expected to be replaced by former Misfits members David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic and François "AmaNEk" Delaunay, who have been without a team since mid-February.

Maniac hangs up his mouse

Maniac is mostly known for his first LDLC stint, during which the team placed top eight at the ESL Major Series One Katowice 2014 Major and top four at ESL One Cologne 2014. In January 2016, after an indifferent spell in Titan, he joined EnVyUs as a coach, only to step down from the role six months later to play competitively again.

That summer, he joined Unity, a Danish team that would go on to sign for Rogue, before inking a deal with LDLC, in February 2017. During his second spell with the French organisation, the 27-year-old helped the team to win ESWC 2017 over BIG and to finish second at Assembly Winter 2018.

"I will be forever grateful for the opportunities that were given to me," Maniac wrote. "Becoming a professional player was a dream come true.

"I've invested a lot of time in gaming, but it has given back to me tenfold. I wish I could thank every single person who's had a positive impact on me along the way.

"To all of you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you."

which he does and maniac wasn't wrong, just like pasha when he said firs g2 team had no chance even though he got destroyed 16-0 but in the end he was right and that team little by little disbanded

2018-05-09 21:28
I like how retards like you bitch always about everything and about nothing, but what I'm saying is if the team was good or had future then it would stick together and not just split one by one, it's like saying c9 major wasn't a fluke and because they won they are a top tier team...

I dont see where i bitched...and you can think im a retard if that makes you feel a little better about yourself. Yet again even if it was a fluke they achieved something big which proved pasha wrong...and they didnt stick together because scream and dennis after him wanted to play with their countrymen
2018-05-10 03:34
winning a major very much makes a team good lol
2018-05-10 12:57
any team can have a fluke run at any event, a major does not make it special at all since the teams decided are by qualifers - which as we've seen has shown cases where teams that deserve to be at the major are not in attendance, and has invites from teams that are nowhere near what they were at the last major. That gambit roster was not a title winning team, and had they stuck together, they almost certainely would not have continued that performance. Don't be stupid

2018-05-10 19:16
team being good /=/ consistently placing top4 at events any t1 team is "good" if you ask me, and if you think a bad team could win a pretty fucking stacked major u are retarded sry
2018-05-10 19:30
when you class gambit as tier 1
2018-05-10 19:32
Firstly you say winning a major makes the team good, then you change it by saying what makes a team good is placing in top4, nice brains

2018-05-09 18:25
"I don't know anything about him and his HLTV/Liquipedia page show nothing noteworthy." Well, if playing in Titan was not noteworthy for you, then I possibly can't remember of anything
2018-05-09 18:26
Playing for a big organization and winning nothing means you get to be called a legend? I don't think that's noteworthy in any way and he hasn't accomplished anything to be referred to as a "legend". That's all I'm curious about. Don't take it so personally.

Let's be real though, Titan marked the beginning of a top 2 lineup (very games) on a journey to the bottom of the top 10. Not arguing maniac isn't a legend or that he is but Titan never had a good lineup

He has been a large presence in the French scene for a very long time and coached nv for awhile when he took a break from playing
2018-05-09 18:15
I can give you two noteworthy facts about Maniac: He was one of the only pro players to play with an inverted mouse. He is the only professional CS player that I know of that held down a serious job at the same time as being a pro. I have a lot of respect for him because of the latter, even if he was never really a top-tier player. He is a smart guy, and will make a very good coach/analyst if he wants to go down that route.

I can consider him as a legend... just because he didn't win any majors or win that many tournaments but the fact that at some point in cs history he was once one of the best player and i think he deserves to be remembered as a legend along side Spawn potti face and many more
2018-05-09 19:18
I've never seen anyone consider him anything close to being the best player at any point and I've been reading up about him and seeing what people are saying. Most people say he was average and his stint in Titan has very disappointing.
2018-05-09 19:20
He was in the 2014-2015 Titan lineup for a little while, but other then that, he's pretty mutch a nonamer.

hes nowhere near to be considered a legend, and no, i think i've played cs for far longer than you considering you're 18. as soon as someone who played on the scene for a couple of years retires, he is automatically assigned "legend" status by hltv retards. dude, he accomplished basically nothing in comparison to MANY other players and was never a good individually.
