Apeks has finalized its lineup by signing French CS:GO veteran Richard shox Papillon for the international team in its quest to become a top-tier organization.

After an underwhelming sixth place ESEA performance, the Norwegian esports organization decided to add more players. Now, they have signed French veteran shox to their international squad.

Shox wrote on Twitter, glad to be back on track. I took care of myself when needed. I am refreshed and ready to compete again with lovely guys. I am excited to face our first official tomorrow.

Shox joins Apeks after an unsuccessful CS:GO tenure with North Americas Liquid, where he is hoping to bounce back in his return to Europe.

After my time in Team Liquid, I needed a break to recover from the exhausting schedule we had. shox stated in the official release on the Apeks website that I had to ensure that my head was fit before joining a new team.

Im very grateful and ecstatic for Apeks and his players and coaching staff for this opportunity. Im confident we can achieve greatness with the right mindset, and I know everyone will put the effort necessary to make this experience a treasured story.

As both players intend to exchange ideas, Shox will try to provide a veteran voice to the international squad led by Martin STYKO Styk.

I'll try to use my knowledge and experience of the game to assist STYKO in his new role. I'm confident that he will develop into an excellent in-game leader. I like to assist and assist younger players so they become stronger, according to shox. My objective for this team is to establish solid tier 1 team.

Joakim jkaem Myrbostad, Tim nawwk Jonasson, Justinas jL Lekavicius, Assistant coach, Pal Polly Kammen, and Head Coach Jakub kuben Gurczynski join the group.

Apeks is currently ranked at #60 on HLTV and has hoped that this new iteration will be able to match the teams high of #28 in the HLTV rankings in the future.

Apeks will have their sights set on their first Counter-Strike match as a five-man squad in the IEM Rio Major open qualifiers starting Monday, Aug. 15.
