Professional gaming organization Titan has released an announcement confirming that Mathieu “Maniac” Quiquerez will be leaving their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team after a year of activity with them. In a statement, Maniac admitted that he was unable to adapt to the new team lineup following the addition of shox and SmithZz, and was aware that he was no longer the best fit. “I truly respect and acknowledge this decision,” he said, “I will learn from my mistakes, bounce back and come back stronger. I am absolutely not done with professional gaming. Expect to hear from me very soon.”

With DreamHack Open Stockholm just around the corner, Titan was able to fill Maniac’s spot just in time by signing Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom to the team. The former G2.Kinguin player revealed in a Facebook post that the decision to leave Gamers2 due to a worsening atmosphere within the team that did not allow for any fun to be had in the experience. He says he accepted the offer Titan made with enthusiasm, believing that this is truly where he belongs.

Following the announcement, Gamers2 confirmed on Twitter that they will be holding tryouts to fill the position.

The new CS:GO roster for Titan is as follows:

Cédric “RpK” Guipouy
Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux
Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans
Richard “shox” Papillon
Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom
