LDLC.com have officially confirmed that they have signed the former eXtensive! team as their CS:GO squad.
The French team had been without a home after quitting eXtensive! last week to join another multi-gaming organisation, who tempted the players with a lucrative offer.
It has now been revealed that such an offer came from LDLC, who housed some of the most talented French players in CS: 1.6 and CS:Source in the past.
Along with the move, LDLC have also announced that they have recruited 2007 WCG champion Mathieu "MaT" Leber and former aAa talent Fabien "atLaNtis" Deguiraud.

The French duo will step into the shoes of Michel "mshz" Nguyen and Robin "GMX" Stahmer, who quit the team to join Imaginary Gaming and Nameless, respectively.
"Today is a great day for us for two reasons," Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez told LDLC's website. "On the one hand, we have the pleasure to announce our new full lineup with the additions of two monsters from the 1.6 scene: atLaNtis and MaT.
"We have had some problems in terms of our lineup, but I could not be happier with our current situation. Their talent, maturity and experience when it comes to the major events is a great boost.
"On the other hand, this new team will have the honour to don LDLC's colours. Our first contacts with this organisation have definitely shown seriousness and professionalism.
"We realise just how fortunate we are to play for this organisation, and we will strive to meet their expectations, whether it be in terms of our image, or results."
The French team will play their first match under LDLC's banner tonight, against Ninjas in Pyjamas, in the ESL Major Series semi-finals. The first LAN event on the calendar for the team is Epsilan, between February 2nd-3rd.
LDLC.com have the following roster:
