Tempo Storm to field Happy, RpK in StarSeries qualifier

MIRAA
July 18th, 2018 19:15

Tempo Storm will be taking part in the online qualifier for StarSeries i-League Season 6 with ex-EnVyUs duo Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer and Cédric "RpK" Guipouy, HLTV.org has learned.

The French duo have been practising with the team in the last couple of weeks and will be replacing Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran and Hendrik "cheti" Vallimägi in the qualifier, which will start on Friday.

loWel has been linked with a new Spanish squad spearheaded by Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas that will reportedly play under Movistar Riders, while cheti did not impress during his short stint with the team.

Happy and RpK have been practising with Tempo Storm

On Twitter, Ricardo "fox" Pacheco admitted that the team is currently "at an impasse" as the French players have not yet committed themselves to the project.

Happy and RpK have been free agents since EnVyUs parted ways with their CS:GO rosters, last month. The remaining four members of the main team have since banded together in LeftOut, who will attend the Europe Minor, this week.

Tempo Storm have been placed in Group B of the StarSeries qualifier, along with 3DMAX, forZe and Nemiga. In their first match, scheduled for July 23, the team will take on David "Davidp" Prins's side.

This means that Tempo Storm will compete in the qualifier with:

Portugal Ricardo "fox" Pacheco
Estonia Kevin "HS" Tarn
Poland Paweł "innocent" Mocek
France Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer (stand-in)
France Cédric "RpK" Guipouy (stand-in)

People on hltv do not know how diference have between baiter and clutch player.
2018-07-18 22:02
I guess u r among them
2018-07-18 23:58
No. I actually follow the scene and watch a lot povs since 2k14. Most of the people here just saw the results and talk shit, or watch the match based on observer screen and come here saying bullshit without knowing about the game. How a baiter can be 2 times the best player in the world? If you can answer that I try to listen you, if not stfu.
2018-07-19 02:13
Because there were two points within CSGO history where his team happened to be contenders for the top team. Both times were due not to happy's skill as a player but because his team was baller enough to kick ass despite essentially being a four-man squad. Notice how after the big meta change that saw EnvyUs fall from grace shortly after their last Major win, Happy has never again been viewed as a great player. People only used to talk about his shitty, bait-everyone-and-everything style of "lurking" and ask themselves if he wasn't a master at his craft because his team was doing so well overall. As soon as the average skill level dropped, his baiting became such a big hindrance to the team that they basically never again were able to achieve even mediocrity.

There is no one because they were stacked in spanish leagues, they can live with those wages better than any tier 2-3 player, now the mentality is upgrading and maybe 4 spanish teams will play in mdl the next season ;)

it is his problem but i dont think so, sometimes you have to do 2 steps back to do 5 steps forward in the spanish scene.
