shox joins Apeks

Eminent French player Richard "shox" Papillon has joined Apeks and signed a one-year contract, the organization announced on its official website.

shox's previous team was Liquid, which he represented in the first half of this year. During this period, the squad was not able to achieve any success, and after PGL Major Antwerp 2022, Papillon and coach Eric "adreN" Hoag were removed from the roster.

The signing of shox completed a rebuild of the Apeks lineup, which began with Asger "AcilioN" Larsen and Hugo "chawzyyy" Günther being put on the bench, followed by the appointment of Jakub "kuben" Gurczynski as head coach. Besides the Frenchman, playing for the Norwegian club in the new season will be Justinas "jL" Lekavicius who joined the team a few days ago.

The revamped Apeks roster will debut at the open qualifiers for the upcoming European RMR tournament scheduled to start on August 15.
