Melty Esports Club, known for fielding teams in CS:GO, Overwatch and other esports, just announced their plans to shut down.
We have translated parts of the official statement for you into English below:
“After almost two years of existence, the Melty Esports Club will be withdrawing from the French esports scene. Within two years, the club had risen to the heights of French and European esports scene. We keep in our hearts the impressive performances of our champions, and we are proud to have been able to accompany the players throughout their victories.
We also keep in mind great moments of emotion, the journey our Counter-Strike team faced through the terrible LDLC final championship of France, as well as the successes of the women’s CS:GO team and their qualification to the World Championships in Montreal. We vibrated following the consecutive victories of the League of Legends team against the juggernaut Millenium, previously unbeaten in France, or the mental strength, concentration and precision of movement from Will2Pac, who on Street Fighter V, carries the hearts of the fans on his sleeve.
Almost two years later, and after stamping our feet into the competitive scene of France, Melty Esports Club is forced to bow out.”
This leaves a lot of the organisation’s players and teams sponsorless, and we wish them all the best in finding new opportunities moving forward.
