EnVyUs is one of the six invited teams to confirm its attendance in the CS:GO Championship Series (CCS) Kick-off Season. The overall schedule of the league has also been revealed, with the online qualifiers set to start on February 23rd.
Renowned for its achievements in the Call of Duty competitive scene, the American organization EnVyUs will field an all-French roster in the CS:GO arena, after recruiting the DreamHack Winter 2014 and MLG Winter X Games champions from LDLC:
- Vincent “Happy” Cervoni
- Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey
- Nathan “NBK” Schmitt
- Richard “shox” Papillon
- Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux
Alongside the five other invited teams, EnVyUs will be joined in the Kick-off Season by two more squads, determined by the online qualifiers that will start on February 23rd and will last for two weeks.
The Kick-off Season itself will be structured around two groups of four teams each: Red Group matches will be played on March 17-19, while the Blue Group ones are scheduled for March 24-26. The winner from each group will automatically qualify in the Grand Finals that will be hosted at DreamHack Bucharest 2015 (April 24-26).
The remaining six teams will then face each other in a Last Chance Tournament on April 8-12, where the last two finalists will be decided.
