mSx joins Electronic Sahara
The French team Electronic Sahara has announced the changes, seeing Jeremy "ioRek" Vuillermet and Rodolphe "Diodel" Verloës leave the team, while Mickaël "mSx" Cassisi has joined the team and Benjamin "drizzer" Charnet has been welcomed into the starting five.
Electronic Sahara has for quite some time been using a wide variety of players, when playing online matches. In the French community it has been known for a long time that Jeremy "ioRek" Vuillermet would step down in November, in order to move to Australia for studies. The time had come and Vuillermet's departure was announced via the team's website.
Rodolphe "Diodel" Verloës has also decided to leave the team, stating that he has a lack of motivation and wants to make an entry into League of Legends, for the fun of it.
In order to cope with the two departures, Electronic Sahara has acquired the services of possibly the most gifted player in French Counter-Strike 1.6 history, the former Virus Gaming member Mickaël "mSx" Cassisi.
With Cassisi joining the team, the Frenchmen also welcomed Benjamin "drizzer" Charnet into the starting five. Charnet has up until now been roaming as the team's backup player and most recently helped redbyte at ESWC. The team has furthermore added the French veteran Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavin as the team's coach.
The Electronic Sahara lineup now consists of:
Michael "HaRtS" Zanatta
Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli
Christophe "SIXER" Xia
Benjamin "drizzer" Charnet
Mickaël "mSx" Cassisi
Electronic Sahara will be participating in the MSI BEAT IT 2011 tournament, which will take place at DreamHack Winter, November 24-27 in Jönköping, Sweden.
