fox to take break from competition

The Portuguese veteran has benched himself due to personal reasons.

Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco has stepped down from OFFSET's starting lineup as he will be taking an indefinite break from competitive action, the Portuguese organisation announced on Tuesday.

fox cited personal reasons for wanting to take some time off from the game. The 34-year-old, one of the most experienced players in the Counter-Strike scene, will remain under contract with OFFSET and will step in for the team whenever needed.

HLTV.org knows that fox will be open to offers during his time away from competition as he still has no plans to call time on his playing career, which began in the early 2000s.

After over a decade with Portuguese teams, most notably exotic, 5Giants and k1ck, fox decided to try his luck abroad in 2015 and joined Team Kinguin, an international project that was put together by Mikail "⁠Maikelele⁠" Bill and Adil "⁠ScreaM⁠" Benrlitom.

With that team, which also played under G2's banner before being transferred to FaZe in January 2016, fox enjoyed the best years of his career. He attended several international LAN events, including four Majors between 2015 and 2016, with the team making playoff runs at ESL One Cologne 2015 (5th-8th) and DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca 2015 (3rd-4th).

He went on to play one more Major, ELEAGUE Major Atlanta in 2017, as part of SK, helping the Brazilian team to reach the event's semi-finals. He was without a team at the time, having been released by FaZe a few months earlier to make way for the signing of Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli.

fox spent the next 18 months trying to build a new international top team, but without success. After short-lived spells with Dignitas, Kinguin and Tempo Storm, he returned home in 2018 to captain Giants, who would attend BLAST Pro Series Madrid in May 2019.

He left the Spanish organisation in December 2020 and went on to sign for OFFSET, who were looking to stake their claim as one of the top esports organisations in Portugal. However, the team failed to challenge the established order in the Iberian scene — where SAW and Movistar Riders have been the dominant forces — during the first half of the tournament season and had to fight their way back into ESEA Advanced after being relegated to Main in Season 36.

In their statement, OFFSET added that they will now "begin negotiations with a view to signing one more player for our team", with their roster currently looking as follows:

Portugal Rui "⁠RIZZZ⁠" Lima
Portugal Filipe "⁠NOPEEJ⁠" Dias
Portugal Bruno "⁠shellzi⁠" Teixeira
Portugal Diogo "⁠snapy⁠" Rodrigues

Portugal Vasco "⁠vsk⁠" Santos (coach)

Portugal Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco (inactive)

A player with his experience and temper will always take up some IGL even if it's not intended. Especially with younger Portuguese players that look up to him.

Are you a newfag? Fox has taken the igl role in plenty teams before and it never worked out. He has bad midgame calls and strats were never up to tier 1/2 standards. It's nothing new for most Portuguese fans of Cs, fox is a bad igl

Do CSGO a favor and uninstall that game and delete your HLTV Account, nobody need guys like you with your stupid kiddo troll comments.

This logic means that there can only be one player playing csgo at one point in time since if you are not the best there is no point in playing. So we should all uninstall the game except f0rest since he is the GOAT.

I've been watching the scene since 2004, fox was a local Portuguese star, like LeX in Russia, he didn't achieve anything at the top level, most of the major tournaments in which k1ck participated, they finished in the last places, so at what point was he tier1? Several 5-8 places was the greatest achievement of his career, lmao

Really hope nothing bad happened to his kid. For context, in the OFFSET vs eXploit game for the RTP Arena Cup, fox got the news that his son was admitted to the hospital. And since then, his performance worsened, against Iberian Family and Movistar Riders, as he couldn't focus too much (he said that on Twitter). Take your time raposa, you'll be back stronger than ever!

Having his son hospitalized and having a failed relationship with his former girlfriend probably took a toll on his performance and motivation. Perhaps this break will give him some perspective and add an extra one or two years to his career. Or then again, maybe not. At 34 you're pretty much burning the last remaining gas in the tank.

that's a shame. i don't think he should be playing anymore, him being a veteran with experience he should be coaching or become an analyst

Analyst is prob his best bet. He was a bad Igl so coaching shouldn't be a strong point for him. I would be glad if he sticks around our scene a bit more, helping with orgs and tournament organizers and maybe some young players with potential.

i think he shouldve capitalized on the Kinguin/FaZe/G2 success when he had the chance, after that i feel like he just dropped off the scene and lost his chance to promote portuguese cs or some shit (although I don't even know if there was t1-t2 talent in the portugal scene at the time)

Our scene is still pretty active. Almost every weekend there is an iberic tournament or qualifier and you can see our matches on hltv We don't have talented players(tier1/2) but we have alot of commitment and passion for the game. So our scene won't disappear that soon. Tho our international potential os very very low.

He's probably made more money in the last 2 years than you have in your whole life c'mon man why would he give up making at least 5k a month in salary to play a freaking computer game? These smaller orgs still pay out salaries above living wage and with tournament wins there are bonuses and pay increases.. I would ride that bitch until the end!
