hAdji becomes free agent following removal from Falcons' active roster

Ali "⁠hAdji⁠" Haïnouss has been removed from Falcons as French teams shuffle players to find the winning combination with the BLAST.tv Paris Major in their sights.

hAdji has announced that he will no longer be a part of Falcons amid a roster shuffle that is affecting a large part of French Counter-Strike just months before the BLAST.tv Paris Major. Reports already indicate that the likes of Alexandre "⁠bodyy⁠" Pianaro, Aurélien "⁠afro⁠" Drapier, and Bryan "⁠Maka⁠" Canda are on the move, while Audric "⁠JACKZ⁠" Jug appears close to a departure from HEET.

HEET to reform without JACKZ; set to add Maka - Report

hAdji, who had been playing with Falcons all the way up to Sunday, when the French team took out Permitta with bodyy already substituting Jordan "⁠Python⁠" Munck-Foehrle, will therefore now dip into the free agent pool as Falcons will not ask for a buyout according to the outgoing player.

Reports initially had Python with a foot out of the door but, according to 1pv.fr's neL, incompatibility between the incoming bodyy and hAdji could have led to a last-minute change in the decision of who was moved to the bench.

The 27-year-old rifler spent just shy of a year in the Saudi organization, which he joined in February 2022 alongside Python. The two were the only remaining members that made it to 2023 from the Akimbo squad that was originally signed to Falcons as Maka, Nicolas "⁠Keoz⁠" Dgus and Jayson "⁠Kyojin⁠" Nguyen Van were all replaced during the second half of 2022.

hAdji averaged a respectable 1.08 rating during his time in Falcons and was an important piece in the first place finishes at ESL Challenger League Season 41 and ESL National Championship France Spring 2022. More recently, in December, he was key in saving the French squad from demotion in ESL Challenger League as the team's highest-rated player in the relegation bracket with a 1.23 across both 2-1 victories over SINNERS and los kogutos.

French CS is dead forever sadly. Too many divas and primadonnas in that scene to ever make a tier 1 team LOL. Falcons 0iq Maka was their best player replaced him with a washed up hasbeen in KennyS and now replace their 2nd star in Hadji while bringing in more recycled and reused "talents"
