Orgless Kosovar native CS GO team Bad News Eagles is reportedly in negotiations to sign with Bleed Esports and playfully under their brand name. Bleed Esports is a Singapore-based organization that is mostly known for their sponsorship time within the VALORANT competitive scene since 2021, stated within a report by Dexerto.
Talks between Bad News Eagles and Bleed Esports are progressing further with ease, while both the roster and the organization think the deal will conclude with both parties shaking hands, according to the report from Dexerto. The Kosovar team showcases the likes of Sener “SENER1” Mahmuti, Genc “gxx-” Kolgeci, Flatron “juanflatroo” Halimi, Dionis “sinnopsyy” Budeci, and Rigon Gashi, all of them have been playing without any sort of external financial support since February 2022. Within their resume they have notably qualified for both of the CS GO Majors in 2022, advancing into the Legends Stage on both events and even knocking out the best team in the world at the time, FaZe Clan, who were the defending champions, at the IEM Rio Major back in November of that year.
If negotiations finish with a positive note, Bleed Esports will step into CS GO’s competitive scene for the first time in their history. The organization does have an Asian team within the VALORANT scene that is not part of the partnership league of Riot Games, plus also an Asian squad in Valve’s Dota 2 scene. It is extremely unlikely that Bad News Eagles would completely move their roster to play in the Asia league since they attend all their tournaments in Europe, where they can also practice against the best teams in the world.

Even after the incredible campaigns in both CS GO Majors of 2022, Bad News Eagles did make a single change going into the 2023 season. After round tables the members involved in the squad decided to cut ties with its former Kosovar native coach Klesti “stikle-” Kola, then immediately signed the 2 time Major Fnatic champion Jonathan “Devilwalk” Lundberg to take his place.
Outside of the possible sponsorship from Bleed Esports, there were other rumors around January that Bad News Eagles were just about to sign with Swedish-based team GODSENT, however for an undisclosed decision it was rapidly declined by Bad News Eagles’ manager James Banks. Ultimately GODSENT decided to rebuild their team once more with a full Swedish lineup, and of course, Bad News Eagles ended orgless once again.
For the outside public this move seems rather strange, however, if Bleed Esports is only looking to invest in the economy and infrastructure necessary for them to shine within Europe, it would be an incredible opportunity for Bad News Eagles. However, if the organization requires them to move all the way into the Asian CS GO league, we believe it would be a downgrade in quality for everyone involved.
