There is no doubt that the carousel in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is still going around in these “winter vacations” that are about to end. Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro is announced by Team Falcons to replace Ali “hAdji” Haïnouss. With this signing, HEET completely changes its lineup after more departures.
This move is undoubtedly a request or rather an imposition from Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt and Kenny “kennyS” Schrub. This pair of experienced players played with bodyy in the past under the banner of G2 Esports in the so-called “French Super Team.”
WE ARE NOT OVER!

Bodyy signs with Team Falcons
Bodyy’s signing by Team Falcons comes a week after the player left his former team, HEET. However, Bodyy’s role will not be the one he played in his former team, as he was the IGL. Instead, this experienced player will be one of the French team’s riflers and the team’s co-leader along with NBK.
The addition of the 26-year-old Frenchman is the latest change in the organization’s approach to the BLAST.TV Paris Major in May. Being played in France, all teams in the country will be fighting hard to qualify for the first Valve-sponsored event of the year.
“I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity. Outside of the IGL role, I am ready for the new challenge and looking forward to working again with NBK- as a co-leader. It’s been four years without Majors. I want to make them proud and hear them cheer in Paris.”
Strong rumors in France reported several days ago that Jordan “Python” Munck-Foehrle would be the player to leave the Team Falcons lineup to make room for the arrival of bodyy. However, the player who finally left the team was Ali “hAdji” Haïnouss, who, according to different reports, detailed “incompatibility” between him and bodyy.
In 2016, bodyy joined G2 Esports, one of the best teams in Europe at the time. His skill was undeniable. He helped G2 win multiple international tournaments, including the ESL Pro League S5 finals and DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017. Bodyy became one of the world’s most consistent CS:GO players during this time.
Bodyy had a 1.09 rating, according to HLTV, while playing for HEET in the 2022 season. Now, he is set to be the Falcons’ star rifle, as he no longer plays in the IGL role.
NBK- expects great things from Bodyy in their reunion and said:
“Bringing Bodyy on board is a key piece to finding more straightness in our entire approach, and I couldn’t be happier that he has decided to join us. I can’t wait to push him to the limit and let him shine while we exploit everyone else’s capabilities to the fullest.”
