Today marks the end of my contract with LDLC, it was an honor to play under this tag. We had a beautiful year together ! I want to thank @devoduvekk @Vitality_ALEX @LDLC_to1nou @LDLC_logaN @LDLC_Krav @ozstrik3r @RegnaM @Martypnp for believing in me.
The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player achieved one notable appearance on LDLC when the team advanced to the playoffs at IEM Chicago.

I couldn't see myself starting a new project straight away and I prefer to take a step back to not make a thoughtless decision about the rest of my career. I will come back as soon as I am 100% ready !
He has decided not to join another team right away and will probably wait until after the IEM Katowice Major. With the roster lock on Jan. 1, it's the perfect time for him to step back and wait for the perfect opportunity to rejoin the competitive scene.
Finn "karrigan" Andersen teased about a similar situation, but instead join Envy for the Americas Minor Championship.
