The Norwegian esports organization Apeks has officially announced parting ways with Richard "shox" Papillon.
"Unfortunately we did not achieve what we expected together, but we would like to thank Richard for his time here at Apeks. We wish you the best of luck with your next step," noted the organization’s statement.
However, the French CS:GO star looks to the future with optimism and announces ambitious plans.
He is set to form his own team to take part in the qualifications for Paris Major, which will be held in May 2023. He has promised to announce the lineup of his new project soon.
As BLIX.GG had earlier reported, in September after failed results in competitions, Apeks' management decided to withdraw its CS:GO roster from all competitions. After that, Richard "shox" Papillon decided to left the team and the org allowed him to explore his options.
At the 2023 New Year's eve, Apeks signed Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski to round up the roster and appointed him as the new in-game leader.
