LDLC has confirmed the acquisition of Timothée “DEVIL” Demolon a day after news broke of his signing.
LDLC announed Friday the signing of DEVIL, confirming a Flickshot report from Thursday. DEVIL has rejoined his former team after playing with other teams such as EnVyUs and MaxiSaucisse. Valentin “mistou” Balbastro will be benched to make room for DEVIL.
“Our goals are very ambitious and recent results have sometimes been disappointing, though we have done great performances in EPL and haven’t been ridiculous at the Minor,” team captain Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans said in a statement. “But not to mention results, we felt we needed a change to allow us to go one step further. Mistou gave a lot to the team and he allowed us to move forward and we can thank him for that, but he missed a little something. I hope he finds it in the future.”
LDLC finished 11th of 12 teams in Europe in Season 5 of the ESL Pro League and most recently failed to reach the semifinals of the PGL European Minor, being unable to qualify for the offline qualifier for the 2017 PGL Major in Krakow, Poland.
