Esports organisation G2 Esports recently hosted a podcast in which they talked with CS:GO players Richard 'Shox' Papillon and Nathan 'NBK' Schmitt, and as reported by Dot Esports, Shox actually revealed that prior to stepping down from the team recently he actually wanted major roster changes.

The in-game leader actually wanted NBK and Dan 'apEX' Madesclaire to be replaced by Kevin 'Ex6tenz' Droolans and Edouard 'SmithZz' Dubourdeaux, but instead Oscar 'mixwell' Canellas joined and pushed Shox himself to the bench. He also added that Kenny 'kennyS' Schrub and Alexandre 'bodyy' Pianaro were players he didn't want to leave.

"I never wanted any change in the team, shox's move was his own choice," bodyy said on Twitter. "He wanted me in his project, I really like Richard and I owe him a lot, but I believe in stability and moving to his team would be against my positions. I wish a good recover from your surgery my friend!"

Who knows what Shox's future holds now, but these are interesting revelations for sure. Do you think these changes would have helped the team if they had been made?
