Ever since yourname? left Copenhagen Games, things have not gone well for them. First they lost their star awper, then they lost their organisation, then they had to switch out two of their line-up. However, they may finally be in for a run of good luck.
A few weeks ago 3DMAX announced the parting of their previous French line-up, after failing to live up to the organisation's expectations. The organisation have had their fair share of success, after sponsoring the North American powerhouse of Fully Torqued for a short while recently, so it comes as no surprise that the management for 3DMAX are looking to come back into the Source scene at the top of the game.
Equally, yourname? have struggled in recent months. As previously mentioned they haven't had the best of luck, and coupled with a relatively poor performance at Denmark's most recent LAN event, The Blast #4, have made some decisive changes. Fortunately for them, these changes seem to have brought about new sponsorship and a new home for the team.
Both the organisation and the players are looking for this to be a strong partnership, as they are both ready to admit they haven't had the best of luck in recent times.
3DMAX's new captain Tomas 'xlo' Falden had this to say of the move:
Today is the beginning of a great new chapter for us. We are joining up with a well known and respected organization, that's right 3DMAX, this is a huge step for us and we can't wait to show ourselves under our new banner, we know that 3DMAX is a professional organization and we know that together, we can achieve great things. 3DMAX have shown that they are the right choice for us, they can give us the support needed for evolving as a team and achieving new levels of play. Together we will look at what the future has to offer and keep working together, whether it's in one game, or another ;)
xlo's statement also hints at the upcoming CS:GO, which is due for release in August. Despite saying previously in an interview that he wouldn't be considering moving over, circumstances have obviously changed.
