Heretics part ways with jeyN
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.
