Heretics part ways with jeyN

Jérémy "jeyN" Nguyen's contract has been terminated with immediate effect, Heretics have announced.

In a Twitter post, Heretics surprisingly justified the decision with the need to "preserve the future of our CS:GO team". According to the Spanish organisation, jeyN hindered the progression of the squad and showed a character that is "completely opposite to the harmony of the rest of his teammates."

The 22-year-old Frenchman joined Heretics as part of the former FrenchFrogs roster signing in July 2019. In November, the player was benched as part of a roster revamp, later returning to the active lineup in January 2020, when Alexandre "xms" Forté was also recruited.

The announcement comes just days after Heretics managed to qualify for the Europe Minor leading to the ESL One Rio Major after beating OG and Heroic (now playing as FunPlus Phoenix) in the closed qualifier. On Twitter, Heretics founder and CEO Arnau Vidal stressed that the decision was made prior to the tournament.

With jeyN's departure, Heretics stand as:

France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey
France Alexandre "xms" Forté
France Bryan "Maka" Canda
France Lucas "Lucky" Chastang

France Morgan "B1GGY" Madour (coach)

Read m8: "preserve the future of our CS:GO team". According to the Spanish organisation, jeyN hindered the progression of the squad and showed a character that is "completely opposite to the harmony of the rest of his teammates."
2020-03-13 23:11
but like why. shouldn't they try and help him instead of booting a talented player.
2020-03-13 23:12
well at least I understood that they tried to help him but he just didn't improve this side of his game

+1 finally someone else saying it What fucking org immediately cuts off all ties with a player like this? If he was ACTUALLY talented he'd be on the bench with a buyout, they wouldn't immediately terminate his contract.
2020-03-13 23:44
Ye that's what I'm thinking or he did some shady shit
2020-03-13 23:51
Either way it's fucking suspect that they parted ways like this. hltv.org/matches/2335388/nip-vs-heretics.. That's when I first started thinking he was cheating. You can't tell from the highlights, but if you watch the whole game, something just seems off about how he plays. Yes, I know I'm a NiP fanboy reppin the DiG flair, but I'm not delusional. DiG are not going to be a good team. They'll be entertaining, but not good.

It's the third. No org cuts ties with a player like that if they're legit. This guy's been cheating his tits off pretty much since he joined. If he was legit, he'd be sitting on the bench with a buyout. The org can't just come out and say "the guy who carries us when he feels like it was cheating so we're dropping him", to they immediately terminate his contract and make him a free agent. scummy from the org and player.

Meh, cheating seems unlikely, nothing seemed suspicious or out of the ordinary from him in their latest matches and he wasn't performing especially well. twitter.com/neLendirekt/status/123858534.. This explanation seems fair enough, Ive watched him play with some streamers a couple times and he had a really unpleasant cocky personality. He was already on the bench for a while so maybe they just didn't renew his contract, or they thought there is no point paying him a salary hoping for a buyout when there is currently no demand and he will probably focus on his studies as a result of being put aside.

former kio tier 1 player . now he is tier 3 player. alex individual skill is so bad. it's doesn't matter . right now he is good IGL by vitality expenses. he couldn't do anything anymore vitality. that's why he left vitality. But he can do better for Heretics. Also alex wants to low pressure and something new. doesn't matter how many salary or something. Heretics made promise huge success or something .
2020-03-14 07:44
Yeah because the 3/5 year traveling had nothing to do with it. And Alex is probably the third best fragging igl beging glave and the big boom from navi
