Millenium have announced that they have secured the services of the former Epsilon Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
The move comes just hours after the French team were given their marching orders by Epsilon as a result of what the organisation described as "internal" problems, which allegedly led to Dan "apEX" Madesclaire's departure earlier in the week.
Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavigni was called in to replace Madesclaire, and the 33-year-old will now return to Millenium, whom he represented in 1.6 for several years.
"After reading Ozstrik3r's interview at Vakarm, I contacted him right away to see what his ambitions and those of his team were," Millenium director Jean-Marc "Bjoran" Gaudin said.
"I found him just as excited as during the start of his career with Get2Gev, and he spoke of his team-mates as skilled monsters.
"Since we were searching for a male CS:GO team, I naturally offered him the chance to join Millenium."
Millenium are through to the French ESWC qualifier from October 31 to November 1 at Paris Games Week after reaching the semi-finals of the first online pre-qualifier.
The French team look as follows:
Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavini
Richard "Shox" Papillon
Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom
Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel
Arthur "h0rks" Moulet
