Who will be on the Falcons’ star-studded Counter-Strike 2 roster?
Falcons has benched four players from its active roster with only one player still active. This comes amidst recent reports of the org having reached a verbal agreement with Snappi.
The Saudi-backed org has long been rumored to be signing some of the biggest names in Counter-Strike. With Counter-Strike 2’s release on September 27, several teams are changing up their active rosters to leave a lasting impact. And Falcons is one of the teams at the forefront.
Falcons bench four players
Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro, Laurențiu "lauNX" Țârlea, and Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak are no longer on the Falcons active roster. The only player remaining from the previous roster is Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas.
The only new addition so far, that has been officially confirmed is that of former Vitality Head coach, Danny "zonic" Sørensen. However, the org is linked with several more signings including those of Emil "Magisk" Reif and Nikola "NiKo" Kovač. Magisk is a former Team Vitality player while NiKo was the star of the G2 esports.
The team has gone through various roster iterations throughout the year. They signed NBK and misutaaa in August last year. With players like KennyS, hadJi, and Bodyy on their roster at some point or the other, the org tried various roster combinations to try to make it work. However, they failed to make an appearance at the BLAST.tv Paris Major, which has now necessitated a drift towards a non-French-only roster.
Recent reports suggest they will move to an English-speaking roster, especially after their recent signing of Zonic as their head coach. Zonic is one of the best coaches in the game, having coached teams such as Astralis and more recently Team Vitality.
Falcons’ CS2 roster, at present, is as follows:
- Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas
- Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)
- Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt (benched)
- Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro (benched)
- Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak (benched)
- Laurențiu "lauNX" Țârlea (benched)
