Team VeryGames: Not enough financial support for 2014A lack of financial support is thought to be the reason for the French organisation's withdrawl from eSports. The costs for the successful and ambitious team are said to have "trippled", giving service provider, VeryGames, no choice but to shut their eSports team down.
Team VeryGames: 5 years full of titlesThe past few years have seen eSports Team, VeryGames, consistently challenge the top spots. Then came the transition from CS:Source to CS:GO, which left Team VeryGames in second place behind Ninjas in Pyjamas. That is until they claimed the RaidCall EMS One Summer 2013 Season title. Having now beaten NiP once again in the Fall 2013 Final, the French organisation is on par with NiP.
Team VeryGames was on top form between 2010 and 2012, when they took multiple titles on both a national and international level in CS:Source. They were consistently one of favorites to win big titles in the French ESL Pro Series, ESL Major Series and later the RaidCall EMS One.
