Belgian organisation HEET has officially parted ways with its entire CS:GO lineup, who are all now free agents.
HEET's lineup enters free agency
The news comes via French player and former HEET team member Pierre "Ex3rcice" Bulinge, who shared the news that he and his fellow teammates would no longer be representing t HEET and are seeking a new team.
The former HEET roster consisted of Lucas "Lucky" Chastang, Thomas "Djoko" Pavoni, Pierre "Ex3rcice" Bulinge and Bryan "Maka" Canda. The lineup has decided to stay together for the time being, and will be competing under the Looking4Org while they look for a new organisation.
The move comes days after a VaKarM.net report claimed that the organisation has struggled to pay players' salaries and tournament prize money in recent months. Team manager Vivien "GoY" Goyon addressed the situation in a press conference on Monday, where he revealed that Djoko and Lucky and both already cut ties with the organisation.
HEET is a relatively fresh face on the CS:GO scene, having first arrived in 2022 when it acquired the Double Poney roster - of which Lucky, Djoko, and Ex3rcice were all members. Maka, meanwhile, joined from his former team Team Falcons.
The team had a handful of successes in their short tenure, claiming victory at the likes of ESL Challenger League Season 40, Elisa Invitational Spring 2022 and CCT Central Europe Series #6. Sadly, however, HEET were never able to qualify for a Valve-sponsored event, having most recently failed to qualify for both IEM Dallas and the BLAST.tv Paris Major.
Given the organisation's financial issues, it is uncertain if we will be seeing HEET competing again on the CS:GO scene. If not, they would be the second team in a week to leave the esport, with Copenhagen Flames having recently filed for bankruptcy.
