JACKZ might be on his way out of G2 Esports to join the French CS:GO roster of HEET, as per reports.
JACKZ was reportedly allowed to explore other options in CS:GO by G2 Esports during the summer player break.
G2 Esports has reportedly set its sight on signing jks over from Complexity Gaming as a replacement for JACKZ.

Talented entry fragger, Audric "JACKZ" Jug, who has reportedly been allowed to explore other options in CS:GO might be on his way to join the French lineup of HEET.

According to 1pv.fr, HEET has shown interest in signing JACKZ who will supposedly be replacing Lucas "Lucky" Chastang on the active lineup. This means that the 30-year-old is close to leaving G2 Esports, having spent more than three years with the team since initially joining them in November 2018.

The entry fragger has not had a great season so far, managing to attain an overall HLTV rating of just 0.95 in the first half of 2022, forcing G2 to implement necessary changes in order to achieve success in the later half of the year.

Report: JACKZ might be on his way out of G2 Esports to join the French roster of HEET

G2 Esports is looking to revamp its CS:GO roster and one of the reported changes is the signing of Justin "jks" Savage over from Complexity Gaming in order to replace JACKZ, who might be on his way to join HEET.

JACKZ has been out of touch this season and it has been pretty evident through most of his performances and the numbers that he has been putting up lately. With G2 Esports failing to win any tournaments in the first half of the year, some changes were in order and unfortunately both him and Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen found themselves on the chopping block.

The current HEET lineup is nothing but the former Double Poney lineup with whom JACKZ previously competed with last year, for a duration of one month. He was one of the founding members of the French roster which competed without the backing of any esports organization.

HEET currently lies just outside the top 20 global rankings. With the addition of the French entry fragger they will be looking to improve their performance and become a mainstay in the international competitive scene.

If the reports stand true, it will be the first roster shuffle that HEET undergoes since signing the lineup in January earlier this year. The revamped CS:GO roster might look as follows,

  • Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro - IGL

  • Aurélien "afro" Drapier

  • Thomas "Djoko" Pavoni

  • Pierre "Ex3rcice" Bulinge

  • Audric "JACKZ" Jug

  • Matthieu "matHEND" Roquigny - Coach

  • Lucas "Lucky" Chastang - Benched
