Official: ScreaM joins VeryGames
VeryGames have formally unveiled former Imaginary Gaming star Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom as their new fifth player.
Benrlitom had been linked with VeryGames since Richard "shox" Papillon broke the news and told Vakarm.net that Imaginary had lost the the Belgian star to the ESWC runners-up.
The French giants then quickly dismissed the stories, stressing that Benrlitom had not joined their ranks, but when Cédric "RpK" Guipouy announced his retirement from gaming, it was suspected that the move was close at hand.
His transfer to VeryGames, in which he will link up with compatriot Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans, has now officially been completed, with the French team undergoing their first roster change since picking up Kenny "kennyS" Schrub in April.
"It is an honour to join the biggest French organisation, I think this is a good step regarding my career," Benrlitom told VeryGames' website.
"I also had to do the hardest choice since my beginning and I want to say sorry to Kévin, Richard, Michel, Steeve and Toma with whom I had moments which I will never forget and I hope everything goes well for them.
"I would also like to thank Imaginary Gaming for the trip to Kiev and I am sorry for this departure."
A former member of CS:Source teams like 3DMAX, LDLC.com and Tt Dragons, Benrlitom was suspected of cheating at first, but doubts about the legitimacy of his actions were erased after he proved himself on LAN.
Since switching to CS:GO, he had been playing for the former Epsilon team, currently known as Imaginary, but their lack of success made him take up a new challenge.
Benrlitom will make his first competitive appearance for VeryGames on Thursday, against mousesports, in ESEA. His LAN debut for the team will come next month at Epsilan, which will be held between February 2nd-3rd in Champagne-au-Mont-d'Or.
VeryGames currently have the following lineup:
Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans
Kenny "kennyS" Schrub
Nathan "NBK" Schmitt
Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux
