Dupreeh is close to joining Team Falcons

Since the beginning of 2024, Counter-Strike has seen a renaissance, with the esports sector gradually becoming more active and several major competitions beginning. With competitions like BLAST Premier Spring Groups and IEM Katowice 2024 now behind them, teams are gradually acclimating to the new format and assembling their rosters. In this “new beginning” of Counter-Strike, many smaller teams have seized the opportunity to establish themselves in the Tier-1 CS environment. Team Falcons, a Saudi Arabian organization, is one such squad. Continue reading this article for the best information on esports predictions!

According to sources, Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, who owns the player record for both overall Major appearances and Major wins, will rejoin Danny “zonic” Sørensen and Emil “Magisk” Reif, his former colleagues from Vitality and Astralis, on Team Falcons. The three have combined to win four Majors: the final CS:GO Major at BLAST Paris with Team Vitality and 3 with Astralis. The ELEAGUE Atlanta Major was also won by Dupreeh and Zonic in 2017 before Magisk joined the Danish team. The 5-time major champion is an extremely experienced player. Playing in 19 CSGO Majors and taking home a record-breaking 5 wins brings with him expertise that may be very beneficial to a squad.

Since the IEM Dallas closed qualification loss to Metizport on March 11, dupreeh has not appeared in any of Preasy’s games. Since then, Kristoffer “Kristou” Aamand, a former member of North and Astralis Talent, has filled in for Preasy; the Danish group hasn’t given a reason for the veteran’s absence. Dupreeh joined Preasy in an attempt to earn a spot in PGL Major Copenhagen at the end of 2023. The squad, however, was unable to achieve this objective as it finished the Europe RMR with a 1-3 record after suffering defeats to HEROIC, OG, and Guild Eagles. Following a disastrous Major League qualification attempt, the Falcons benched Muhammad “BOROS” Malhas and are now searching for a new player. For the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, the Saudi organization hired Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev from Natus Vincere on a month-long loan; nevertheless, the acquisition of the Ukrainian superstar was unable to stop the squad from losing the tournament after just one game. The financing agreement with s1mple is scheduled to end on March 19. The Team Falcons may be among the few clubs with the financial wherewithal to make a significant offer for the iconic player, even if S1mple has openly expressed his desire to rejoin the starting NAVI roster following the Major.

After a tumultuous few months, Team Falcons is also attempting to get back on course. In late 2023, the squad was linked to possible superstar transfers such as NiKo, m0NESY, and Twistzz, but those agreements fell through. The team that was assembled managed to make it to the IEM Katowice semifinals, but because of a poor RMR performance, they were unable to advance to the Major. The agreement, which has not yet been formalized, might rejuvenate the Falcons’ roster and put Snappi, Magisk, Maden, SunPayus, and Zonic in a potent lineup. The possibility of dupreeh’s experience joining the Falcons offers an exciting competitive edge, but the community must wait for confirmation.
