hAdji had been part of Falcons since February 2022, back when the team was known as Akimbo. With the Rifler under their belt, Falcons started to make waves in tier two Counter-Strike with an impressive performance in ESL Challenger League and OMEN WGR European Challenge. This pace continued with the signing of hAdji , and he became the highest-rated player in the team throughout 2022.
The domination of Falcons in the tier-2 scene continued with hAdji in 2022 as they won ESL Challenger League Season 41. However, the squad kept struggling against high-tier rosters and failed to qualify for IEM Rio Major.
As hAdji’s performance wasn’t the same at the start of 2023, and Falcons quickly decided to bench the Frenchman in January while trying to qualify for the BLAST Paris Major. Replacing him wasn’t really the answer for the French team as they showed a struggling performance in the European RMR, failing to qualify for the Major. Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro, the former player for HEET, played in replacement for hAdji after his benching.
Recently, hAdji has played several matches for HEET, and it looked like the Frenchman was back in his 2022 form with excellent performance. With hAdji on their roster, HEET went on a winning streak in the CCT Central Europe Series 6.
