Playing Ducks have announced that they have secured the services of former Epsilon talent Joey “fxy0” Schlosser.

The French player has been out of action since the match-fixing scandal involving his Epsilon team, who lost an ESEA match on purpose to profit from weapon skin betting.

In addition to being released from Epsilon, Joey “fxy0” Schlosser and three of his team-mates were also suspended indefinitely from all Valve-sponsored events.
