3DMAX returns to Counter-Strike

3DMAX was a popular name in CS:GO over the past decade housing several French players and rosters from other nationalities. While the org didn’t make it as the top team in the scene, they were a stable presence, quite often feeding into other tier-one teams.

"Everyone worked really hard to make it happen, and we will do our best to make our fans proud. We are back to where it all started. This is just the beginning of an exciting journey, and we've got plenty more exciting news to come."


The organization has not limited itself to French rosters in the past. They have also fielded players from Denmark and Germany. However, the org left the CS:GO scene in 2019. The new roster includes two players who have previously played for 3DMax previously. 

The Looking4Org roster finally finds an org to represent after the players were left searching for one for most of this year. The team will compete in ESL Challenger Jönköping which is an offline CS2 event in Sweden. The event features a $100,000 prize pool, but more importantly, the event winner will earn a spot in the ESL Pro League Season 19. There are eight teams in competition including the likes of Virtus.Pro, Monte, GamerLegion, and more. 3DMax will face Virtus.Pro in their first match of this event. 

The 3DMax Counter Strike roster is as follows:

  • Ali "⁠hAdji⁠" Haïnouss
  • Bryan "⁠Maka⁠" Canda
  • Lucas "⁠Lucky⁠" Chastang
  • Thomas "⁠Djoko⁠" Pavoni
  • Pierre "⁠Ex3rcice⁠" Bulinge
  • Adrien "⁠killazoo⁠" Legarda (coach)
