Report: shox to leave Liquid

French player Richard "shox" Papillon will soon leave the Liquid roster. According to Dot Esports, the departure was initiated by the player, who asked the club to terminate the contract.

The source reports that shox's decision to leave was made after Liquid's disastrous performance in the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Legends Stage, where the team did not manage to win a single match and ended up with a 0-3 record. The desire of the Frenchman to leave Liquid was also influenced by issues of traveling between Europe and North America.

shox has been playing for Liquid since the beginning of this year. Over the past five months, the team's best result was the 5-8th place at ESL Pro League Season 15.

The information about Papillon's departure came a week and a half before Liquid's first match at IEM Dallas 2022, which kicks off on May 30. At the moment, there is no information about whether the player will take part in the big tournament, or the team will be forced to look for a replacement.
