French veteran shooter Audric “JACKZ” After his former G2 teammate Lucas “Lucky” Chastang left earlier this week, Jug has joined HEET to fill the void. JACKZ has spent the last three years of his career playing for G2’s international team, but with this move, he will once again play for an all-French team. He assisted G2 in winning lesser competitions like the Champions Cup in 2019 and helped them advance to the championship rounds of illustrious competitions like IEM Cologne, the PGL Stockholm Major, and IEM Katowice.
JACKZ was allowed to explore his options after a string of underwhelming results following G2’s grand final appearance at IEM Katowice, in which the international team bombed out in the early stages of important tournaments like PGL Antwerp Major, ESL Pro League season 15, and IEM Cologne.
JACKZ’ transfer to HEET will mark his reunion with Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro, Aurélien “afro” Drapier, and Thomas “Djoko” Pavoni. The 30-year-old had already played with them when the team was still sponsorless in 2021 and used the DBL Poney tag. The DBL Poney lineup was picked up by HEET in January 2022.
“Despite the results and evolution we have seen from the team in the first six months, when the opportunity to sign a player of JACKZ’s caliber and T1 experience, we understood that it was necessary to make the move and bring him,” HEET’s COO Jasur “Jazz” Avizov said in a statement.
JACKZ’s under the HEET banner will take place at ESL Challenger League Europe season 42, which kicks off on Aug. 16.
