Heretics complete lineup with Nivera signing

Heretics have completed their lineup with the signing of former Legends member and the brother of Adil "⁠ScreaM⁠" Benrlitom, Nabil "⁠Nivera⁠" Benrlitom, the organization has announced.

The 18-year-old Belgian effectively replaces Jérémy "⁠jeyN⁠" Nguyen in the French roster, after the 22-year-old player's contract with the organization was officially terminated on Friday because of character traits that did not align with the rest of the team.

Nivera was last seen playing alongside Vitality's new member, Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier, in Legends in January's IEM Katowice open qualifiers, where the team made it to the top-16 stage in the first qualifier.

Although the Belgian has previously been the main AWPer in his teams (with 41% of his kills recorded across ten maps on HLTV being with the sniper rifle), it is expected that Bryan "⁠Maka⁠" Canda will stay in that role in Heretics.

HLTV.org has learned that the team will be able to add their newest member to their Europe Minor lineup ahead of the roster deadline in late March despite making it to the Rio tournament with jeyN via the closed qualifier.

Should the Rio de Janeiro event go on as planned, Nivera will make his notable LAN debut in at the Minor in Brazil from April 26-May 2, which is the only upcoming tournament in Heretics' schedule at the moment.

Heretics have the following team:

France Fabien "⁠kioShiMa⁠" Fiey
France Alexandre "⁠xms⁠" Forté
France Bryan "⁠Maka⁠" Canda
France Lucas "⁠Lucky⁠" Chastang
Belgium Nabil "⁠Nivera⁠" Benrlitom

France Morgan "⁠B1GGY⁠" Madour (coach)

and yet Hunter is performing far better than Niko right now)) it's going to be fun, I mean ScreaM ain't even competing anymore (which is quite sad btw)
2020-03-14 17:23
is he really tho? niko has 1.27 rating on lan past 3 months hunter has 1.28
2020-03-14 17:32
hltv.org/stats/players/compare/3972/huNt.. But hunter has played double the amount of maps. Not only does that make it more difficult but it means hunter is winning more and facing more difficult opponents by going deeper in tournaments.
2020-03-15 04:04

2020-03-14 21:25
Show me a kioshima team that didnt have internal issues..
2020-03-14 23:51
But the issues werent based around kioshima? They were directly related to jeyns communication and social skills. Not sure what your point is. You're saying that they should stay together despite clear issues? Glad you're not managing any teams
2020-03-15 04:11
Im not saying that, you just imagined me saying that so that you could argue your own piont.. I am saying however that it is a strange coincidence how every kioshima team have internal issues.
2020-03-15 10:38
More like every French team. Just how the scene has always been. That's why I said "not sure" cause your intention wasnt clear. So no I didnt imagine anything, I asked.

2020-03-14 22:46
How is that an excuse? He was performing fine, reports were that he didnt communicate and practice at the level the team wanted
2020-03-15 04:05
bc maybe he is hacking ???
