Liquid confirm shox signing
The North American organization have unveiled the fourth player of their 2022 roster with the addition of the French legend.
Liquid confirmed the signing of legendary French rifler, Richard "shox" Papillon, via the organisation's Twitter account. The news lands not long after the NA org also announced the signing of young American AWPer Josh "oSee" Ohm.
The move comes as no surprise, with the 29-year-old having been linked with a transfer to Liquid back in November after it became clear that Vitality would be signing the exiting Astralis trio of Emil "Magisk" Reif, Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Danny "zonic" Sørensen come the end of the year.
2021 was a mixed bag for shox, with his HLTV rating for the year the lowest in his time in CS:GO, but still posting impressive clutch numbers and achieving several top placings with Vitality, including a victory at IEM Winter.
The move continues the off-season rebuild that Liquid have been undertaking, having removed Michael "Grim" Wince, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Jake "Stewie2K" Yip from the active roster following an underwhelming year plagued by internal issues.
The Liquid roster now consists of:
Eric "adreN" Hoag (coach)
