Maka explores options for 2021

The AWPer's time with Heretics seems to be nearing its end as he has been allowed to look for another team.

Heretics have allowed Bryan "⁠Maka⁠" Canda to explore his options for the next year before his contract with the Spanish organization ends at the end of 2020, the Frenchman has announced on Twitter.

The 23-year-old has been a part of the organization since mid-2019, when Heretics decided to turn their focus to the French scene with the signing of FrenchFrogs. Although today he is the last remaining member of that roster, the AWPer helped the organization reach new heights, with the team peaking at No. 21 in the ranking following an impressive campaign at ESL One: Road to Rio.

Maka weighs up his future

The French side has been going through a rough patch in the last month and a half, as the organization dismissed Morgan "⁠B1GGY⁠" Madour in late September due to the coach receiving a 7.5-month ban by ESIC for using the infamous coaching exploit, and sold Nabil "⁠Nivera⁠" Benrlitom to Vitality three weeks later.

Since then, the team has struggled with consistency as Alexandre "⁠xms⁠" Forté was in and out of the roster due to health issues, and earlier on Sunday, the 23-year-old announced his departure from Heretics.

The instability and shaky results in recent times, during which Heretics were unable to replicate the promising form they had shown earlier in the year, have also caused Fabien "⁠kioShiMa⁠" Fiey to take to Twitter to express his discontent with his current situation, as he discussed the possibility of his career coming to an end.

wow that would acc be insane. Unfortunately kenny is the posterboy for that squad so doubt he will be let go soon

Yeah, agreed. Maka is actually very strong, he's just always been in poor teams. Don't really know what other squads he could go to, most squads don't need to change AWP. Changing kenny could be a very bold statement to make but could reap rewards if it works out. It may also make sense if jackz is dropped after their trials period

i mean,k10 was second caller,the lucky took igl but it didnt work,but in RMMR tournaments where they had good performance maka was leading still a problem of 3 2nd caller in 1 team just put mak in faze
2020-11-09 12:02
Yeah, he is a LOT better than kenny at this point. Also better with rifles. Kenny is only here for name value at this point. Maka is likely the second best french player at the moment

1 reply
Yeah... well Nivera chose to go T1 which was always going to happen but what made it all go wrong was xms being ill all the time. It’s a real shame, this team was so much fun to watch ! Kio needs a break, but I hope it’ll be just that and not a full stop. He’s still a high quality player, one which can bring experience and talent to a roster and bring up new talents as time goes. Maka can definitely explore for now. Lucky and Jackz will probably reunite somehow
