Richard Papillon, known as “shox,” is a 29-year-old French CS:GO player who has been playing under Team Vitality jersey for over three years. Previously, he had played for Team Envy, G2 Esports, and more.

Team Vitality has been competing at PGL Major Stockholm 2021, and they have managed to qualify for the Champions stage. After their qualification, shox spoke in an interview with hltv to talk about their performance.

In the conversation, shox pointed out that they fight for the Champions stage day by day and stated that they had some mental issues on some of the matches, but they managed to overcome the situation.

Therefore, shox said that he is so proud of his team as well as the rookies who never played at major before, Kévin “misutaaa” Rabier and Jayson “Kyojin” Nguyen Van, for stepping up when they needed.

While the veteran player was saying that this will be misutaaa and Kjoyin’s first time on the big stage and they need to step up once again, he also mentioned that they are going to help them to feel comfortable.

Furthermore, Shox touched upon the fact that they have no expectations moving throughout the stages at major because it’s pointless to make such goals with the rookies in the roster. Instead, they are going to try enjoying the games.

Shox on qualifying for the Champions stage at the PGL Major:

“You never expect that, but it was just what I wanted, us fighting for it day by day, game by game, which is really hard mentally.

We had a couple of maps where we were struggling, especially in this mental part, but I’m really proud of the team, and especially the rookies, that they fought against this fear to just step up.

It’s also going to be the first time in an arena for Kyojin and misutaaa, so it’s going to be one more step for them.

We’re going to try to help them in that part to feel comfortable. But in my opinion, it’s your first Major, you’re going to play your first playoff in an arena, don’t talk about expectations or whatever, just let them enjoy what is playing in the arena and we’ll see what happens.”
