3DMAX lose CS:GO team

3DMAX and their CS:GO team have decided to part ways, the players have confirmed.

In a statement provided to HLTV.org, the team explained that it "has grown faster than the organisation", adding that the players were recently informed that the management would not be able to deliver on some of the promises that it had made.

Davidp & co seek a brighter future away from 3DMAX

During their time under 3DMAX, the team most notably attended the Europe Minor leading to the FACEIT Major and won the ESEA MDL S29 Global Challenge, in Dallas, reaching a highest-ever ranking of world number 24 last month.

"After qualifying for the ESL Pro League, the team received several offers at the end of our contracts," the team stated.

"We chose to stay with 3DMAX for some reasons. Among other things, we respect a value that is rare in this space: loyalty, which was justified thanks to the progress that the team had made with the help of the management.

"I am really disappointed to see that the promises were made more by conviction than by real guarantees. I do not have all the details of this failure, and I will let the staff explain if they want to."

The announcement comes at a crucial time for the French team, who are looking to find some much-needed stability after losing Audric "⁠JaCkz⁠" Jug and Lucas "⁠Lucky⁠" Chastang to G2 at the end of 2018.

Former Envy member Ali "⁠hAdji⁠" Haïnouss has been playing for the team since the duo's departure, while Logan "⁠LOGAN⁠" Corti was brought in only last week after Timothée "⁠DEVIL⁠" Démolon had tried out for the fifth player position.

The French team are now looking for a new organisation to represent at the upcoming ESL Pro League Season 9 and beyond, and can be reached by email at vivien.goyon@gmail.com, with their roster looking as follows:

Belgium David "⁠Davidp⁠" Prins
France Bryan "⁠Maka⁠" Canda
France Gaëtan "⁠JiNKZ⁠" Jamin
France Logan "⁠LOGAN⁠" Corti
France Ali "⁠hAdji⁠" Haïnouss

yep its undestandable and was inevitable (idk if i spelled it right :D) but they really developed as a team and started to upset tier1.5-2 teams its just a shame for all these up and comers that french veterans are in really poor form right now (g2 and vitality core)
2019-03-13 21:16
i think the signings benefitted G2, they needed some talent. ex6tenz and smithzz werent good enough. amanek for bodyy will make them even better imo. it's the csgo cycle, good players on smaller teams rarely stick together if a bigger team is offering to buy them.

If you think that, you have no understanding of a how a market works.
2019-03-13 22:25
Can you please explain why ebettle stickers haven't gone up in price then? The org leaving only affects the supply, if the demand isn't there, the price won't go up. He's kinda right in saying that the price only went up because they were good looking stickers, because that was the increase in demand, and would therefore increase the price accordingly (but saying that it wasn't because the org left is also wrong).

Ebettle looks shit bruh. 3dmax stickers are great looking and supply is not enough to meet the demands that's why it cost high
2019-03-13 23:54
I mean looks are largely subjective, but I was mainly responding to the other guy who said that the other guy didn't understand how a market worked because the other guy said that the price went up because of their stickers being good looking.

Titan was an epic team, and ibp were negatively famous, but 3dmax is just an average team without something to be known for

You dont even have 1 relevant player. All you have are some shitty mix teams. Meanwhile Windigo is beating teams like MIBR, G2, Fnatic, mouz and almost beat Astralis (16-13 and 16-14) You don't know anything about CS if you think both countries are on the same level.
