French CS: GO prodigy Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut is no longer a part of aAa. The organisation announced his departure from the team. Zywoo has been with aAa since September 2017 and has helped the team secure several trophies.
aAa landed the Wysix roster in September 2017 and have seen decent success since then. They secured the third place at ESWC 2017 and even won the ESL National Championship France Summer 2018. Zywoo was a huge part in this team’s success as the team worked around the young player seamlessly.
As Zywoo matured in the game with exceptional form and better stats, he was immediately noticed by several pros and analysts. He is already a part of the ‘Waterboys’ roster which features several prominent members from the French scene. There are rumours of Team Vitality picking up the organisation but it seems that talks are still underway for the team.
For now, Zywoo is not contracted to any team while he plays under the team Waterboys. The current roster for Waterboys is as follows:
- Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt
- Dan “apEX” Madesclaire
- Cédric “RpK” Guipouy
- Vincent “Happy” Schopenhauer
- Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut

He spoke about his time on aAa in an interview released on their official website.
Only positive, it was really a very good year for me. This allowed me to go overboard with the team, but also to experience a much more professional coaching. If I had to keep 3 memories, I would say the competition on C8, it was funny to discover a TV set, the PGW where we played on stage in front of a lot of people, and then necessarily last time my invitation and my showmatch to Major in London.
Part of France’s future in CS:GO
The French scene is pretty much in the doldrums right now. With contractual obstacles on G2 esports, there seem to be problems on that roster. This new ‘Waterboys’ roster holds a lot of promise with RPK being central to the team’s formation. Zywoo has a lot of talent and along with the like of NBK and Apex, this team looks very strong right now.
We expect an official Team Vitality announcement very soon. Watch this space for more information.
