To the team's official website, the President and founder of Team VeryGames, Johann Thiesson, said:
"It is the third try with shox for Team VeryGames,"
"It’s a risky move: Richard always lacked of professionalism and team spirit to be a part of the high level competition. It has always blocked him in his career even with his oustanding qualities in the game.
"I personnally wouldn’t have made that choice, but I hope that Richard and the rest of the team are going to prove me wrong.
"Kenny is still young and the switch to Global Offensive didn’t help him with catching up with his experienced teammates. I’m pretty sure he’ll get that experience and fill the gaps in his gameplay soon."
VeryGames is most of all known for their dominance back in Counter Strike:Source and their stability. It has been difficult to regain the dominant form after the change of Cédric "RpK" Guipouy where Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom took his place.

On the 1st of May, Valve released another CS:Global Offensive update, in which they tweak a few major issues and some weapons. The most interesting change coming with this update is the removal of the aimpunch when getting hit in the arm/legs and also the increasing Desert Eagle's accuracy. Also, on competitive matchmaking you can now buy 2 flashbangs and 4 grenades in total, instead of 3 and only 1 flashbang.
Classic Competitive now allows 2 flashbangs and 4 grenades total.
Implemented bodygroups penetration for maximum damage, now shooting through arms at the enemies head will apply headshot damage, or shooting through arms at the stomach will apply stomach damage multiplier.
Removed aimpunch resulting from getting shot in the arms or legs.
Auto switch when dropping a weapon (or after throwing a grenade) avoids weapons with 0 bullets in the clip.
Reduced environment fog when scoped with a weapon.

As reported by many websites, and now confirmed by the company itself, it appears that the ESEA anticheat software was hiding a botnet which was used to collect bitcoins via the computers of their players.
The malware has been detected within the last version of the soft by an anonymous player on Wednesday.
The company initially claimed that this code was only the remains of an April's fool idea, but this explanation was quickly revised and it appears that it was indeed very active and grabbing a lot of money for the benefit of one of their coders.
The total amount collected is estimated at 3713,55 USD
But don't worry too much, you are totally safe on GN ;-)
After asmo and qk-Mantins announced they will leave the German team n!faculty, some new line-up changes appeared today. It is reported that n!faculty secured the services of Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz and Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninik, as they are tested if they could join the squad on a permanent basis.
The following statement was made from n!faculty management:
"Although we really were able to show a good performance in various competitions, the last months brought us some differences based on the poor resuls that we couldn´t fix," team manager Christian "PsYcHo" Lenz told HLTV.org.
"After the EMS finals it was already clear to everyone that we could not play with this lineup anymore. qk-Mantis and asmo always did a great job for n!faculty and both of them deserve my highest praise.
"The fact that these two players will leave the team was not their decision only. I think smn and Kirby have improved a lot since joining n!faculty and deserve to carry on the "mates and more" principle under the leadership of disruptor.
"tabsen is known for his great talent; he lives in Cologne, close to our club house, and fits into our requirements. We were also able to bring in LEGIJA, who is playing his second season in EPS Germany and has shown his quality in every game.
"At the same time, we found in shirox a new backup player who can help us through any difficult situation thanks to his potential."
n!faculty will face ALTERNATE in the EPS Finals, when qk-Mantis and asmo will play for the last time in this squad. After this event, LEGIJA and tabseN will make their debut in the SLTV Starseries VI qualifier kicking off on Wednesday.
