LDLC trial roden

LDLC have revealed their fourth roster member, Rodolphe "roden" Bianco, who has been signed on trial.

The 21-year-old rifler will be representing LDLC on trial at the upcoming ESL Championnat National and Charleroi Esports events, taking place this evening and over the weekend of April 12-14, respectively.

Previously part of squads such as clear and unKnights, roden is an aspiring talent who has now been given the chance to prove himself alongside more experienced players in the refurbished LDLC roster.

xms and SIXER have found a new teammate in young talent, roden

The Frenchman is the fourth announced roster member of LDLC, with a single player left to be revealed for a complete squad. Previously, the organisation announced the signings of Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli, formerly of Space Soldiers, and of ex-Envy duo Christophe "SIXER" Xia and Alexandre "xms" Forté.

With the addition of roden, LDLC are now composed of:

Turkey Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli
France Alexandre "xms" Forté
France Christophe "SIXER" Xia
France Rodolphe "roden" Bianco

France Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavigni (coach)

2019-04-09 15:43
He already signed with GamerLegion. LDLC doesn't have the money to buy out a player like ScreaM. GamerLegion would ask shittons of money.
2019-04-08 15:25
He's washed up too
2019-04-08 16:10
Wasn’t making any comment about that. Irrelevant of that, he’s got many (young & impressionable) fans, so a valuable marketing asset nonetheless.

That kind of fanbase isn't that relevant, he is far from the hype around him between 2014 and 2015 tho. He didn't played much at high tier since G2 and lasts envy matches so I don't think his value is that high atm
2019-04-08 17:18
You're looking at it from the wrong perspective: Imagine you're a sponsor looking to sponsor a CSGO team. You don't know the perfect ins and outs of the scene, but one of the teams you are talking to is showing you that they have a team with not only french people, but also a Belgian (one of the only belgians in the scene, thus getting a lot of attention from that country specifically). They show he's got some big marketing potential with big numbers when he streams, every one in the scene knowing his name and even having products named after him that are selling quite well, even into other esports (finalmouse ScreaM), with countless more youtube videos devoted to him than even some of the biggest pros in CSGO history That sounds very very attractive to any sponsor looking to get into esports and therefore many teams will want to get him in there for the sponsor money - and fanbase he brings. EDIT: You also realize he's been getting tons of offers from teams but has been turning them all down, prefering to only go for a decent contract or a team he believes in - why else give up streaming when there's so much money in it? EDIT2: Not even a ScreaM fan, just work in the business and deal with marketing quite often, so I know how they work/think

Np I agree with all of that but this commercial aspect and attractivity but it going lower and lower since he didn't went to a structured team/ only mix which didn't allowed him to shine as a professional CS player, I've been following him a lot since last times of Titan and G2 and he made big actions on big stages but not anymore since he leaved and that's my point. He could still being a good selling image but imo far less than some years ago.

2019-04-08 15:50
man i would have enjoyed a team with maj3r kio and bodyy anytime. maj3r kio bodyy sixer xms does not look so bad actually. But it won't happen, sadly
2019-04-08 15:53
sixer is the worst french player you have and xms should have stayed retired longer then a week. You can put bodyy and kio in gamerlegion.
2019-04-08 15:56
idk sixer looked decent recently !
2019-04-08 15:56
yeah and kio would agree to join lul
2019-04-08 16:32
actually i heard that he wasn't interested in that team, but he wouldn't say no to a french scene come back. But i think he'd like to be in one of the best two ... G2 or VItality, not in that new LDLC LU.

Hmm interesting... i suppose(?) Never heard of him, any French/Belgian person know more about this dude? Good/Bad? What role? etc. I just wish LDLC didnt pick SIXER up & maybe XMS. Why didnt they just go with DEVIL & Smithzz as AWPer over SIXER? I know Smithzz & SIXER isnt exactly sick AWPers, but tbh Smithzz >> SIXER. Smithzz can also help with IGLing stuff.

WHERE IS THE FIRE POWER? I only see avg players... There is no one in this roster to carry the team in a difficult situation or wins that impossible clutch.

Honestly never heard of him. Kind of feel bad if he is a decent prospect because no chance he improves with all the washed up around him

Yo who actually cares about a roster that won’t even make top 20. Please stop posting about this team we literally don’t care about a roster with players past the age of 25. Nothing special about this team besides the L’s it’ll take.
