After months of speculation and rumors, Team Falcons has finally revealed the highly anticipated CS 2 superteam.

The Saudi Arabian organization Team Falcons has revealed its star-studded CS 2 roster, featuring former players from ENCE and Vitality. Mohammad “BOROS” Malhas is the only survival member from the previous Falcons lineup. He will be joined by the Danish legend, Emil “Magisk” Reif, who has contributed significantly to Team Vitality’s success in 2022 and 2023.

The Danish rifler won many prestigious events with the French side, including the Gamers8 2023 and the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023. He will reunite with his former coach from the Astralis era, Danny “zonic” Sørensen, who joined Falcons last month after leaving Vitality.

The Saudi Arabian organization rounded out the roster by signing a three-man core of ENCE. After announcing the signing of star ENCE player Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer yesterday, Falcons added two of his teammates “Maden” Bošković and Alvaro “SunPayus” Garcia to complete the roster. These three players helped ENCE keep a top-five ranking since June after winning IEM Dallas 2023 and finishing runner-up at IEM Cologne and Gamers8. ​​

To make room for the new addition, the organization has already moved Laurențiu “lauNX” Țârlea, Milošz “⁠mhL⁠” Knasiak, and Nathan “NBK” Schmitt to the bench but there is no information yet about their plans for 2024 season.

When will Team Falcons make its debut?

Despite signing high-profile rosters, the Falcons won’t get many chances to showcase their skills as the organization isn’t a BLAST or ESL-partnered team. However, thanks to the strategic sign of ENCE’s core, Falcon will have a spot at RMR of the 2024 PGL Copenhagen Major.

Moreover, it also indicates that the Falcons will compete in IEM Katowice, where invitations will be distributed following the ESL World Ranking on Monday, December 17. Since ENCE has performed consistently into 2023, it is presently ranked fifth on the ESL rankings.

ENCE, on the other hand,  intends to quickly put up a new squad, but first, they must compete in the open qualifications for the first RMR this January. The team recently participated at the Blast Premier: World Finals 2023, where they lost both of their group stage matches and got bombed out from the event on a 7th-8th place finish.

Falcons Counter-Stike 2 Roster:

  • Mohammad “⁠BOROS” Malhas
  • Pavle “Maden” Bošković
  • Alvaro “SunPayus” Garcia
  • Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer
  • Emil “Magisk” Reif
  • Danny “zonic” Sørensen (coach)
