shox and kyojin leaves the active roster on Nakama

The French CS:GO team will no longer feature the profiled duo.

The legendary CS:GO rifler Richard "shox" Papillon and his younger countryman Jayson "Kyojin" Nguyen Van has been removed from the active roster on Nakama, the organization reveals on Twitter.

This marks an end to a short 4-month tenure with the roster for shox, which he himself captained and was a founding figure of, while kyojin first joined the team in early March this year. Nakama has issued the following on the recent roster change.

- We would like to inform you today of the removal of shox and Kyojin from the active roster. We would like to thank both players for their dedication and hard work on the project. While we search for their replacements, they will continue to assist us as stand-ins for ESEA matches if needed, Nakama wrote in a Twitlonger.

Tough period for shox

This was shox’s third time being either benched or removed from a CS:GO team ever since he left the French top team Vitality back in December 2021.

First he departed Team Liquid after a failed attempt in North America, then he moved to Scandinavia and Apeks where he did not find any success either, and now, nearly halfway through 2023, shox is once again on his way out of a team.

It will be interesting to see where the former Major winner will land next.

Removing shox and kyojin leaves Nakama with only three players.
