bodyy signs with Falcons

The 26-year-old reunites with former G2 teammates Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub and Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt.

Alexandre "⁠bodyy⁠" Pianaro has officially signed for Falcons, the news coming a week after the Frenchman parted ways with HEET. He will not be carrying over his in-game leadership duties to his new squad.

This move is the latest in a relatively extensive French shuffle which has HEET mid-way through entirely revamping their squad, has already seen Aurélien "⁠afro⁠" Drapier join LDLC, and also the creation of a new team spearheaded by legendary rifler Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon.

bodyy joins legendary names NBK- and kennyS in Falcons

The wholesale changes in the French scene have been spurred by the upcoming BLAST.tv Paris Major, with bodyy directly referencing his desire to hear fans cheering in Paris in his tweet announcing his arrival in Falcons, while shox's new side was explicitly created with the goal of qualifying for said competition.

bodyy leaves behind a HEET squad that achieved success in the tier-two scene, winning tournaments like Elisa Invitational Spring and ESL Challenger League Season 40, but also one that struggled to kick on in tournaments of a higher caliber, such as ESL Pro League and the Antwerp and Rio RMRs last year.

HEET part ways with afro and bodyy *

The Falcons team he joins went through 2022 in a similar vein, managing some solid results in tier-two and the French regional scene, but rarely making headway against higher-tier opposition.

Originally it was reported that Jordan "⁠Python⁠" Munck-Foehrle would be the player to make way in Falcons, but according to a tweet from 1pv.fr's neL, incompatibility between bodyy and Ali "⁠hAdji⁠" Haïnouss may have resulted in the latter being moved to the bench instead.

Falcons are set to debut their new roster on January 25 at 11:00 , when they take on PROSPECTS in the Elisa Invitational Winter 2023 Contenders. The action from that match can be viewed on the Elisa Esports Twitch channel.

Falcons are now:

France Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub
France Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt
France Alexandre "⁠bodyy⁠" Pianaro
France Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier
France Jordan "⁠Python⁠" Munck-Foehrle

Has a region switched out players more often than the French? What ever happened to SIXER he's like NA's Cooper both have the talent but no one ever took the chance on them to make it to the next level now their old AF.
