KioShiMa and Lucky buff Heretics CS:GO roster

The Spanish organisation has had a French roster since July after picking up FrenchFrogs post-DreamHack Open Tours 2019 and sees two new additions to the squad.
KioShiMa and Lucky buff Heretics CS:GO roster

Lucas "Lucky" Chastang and Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey have joined Team Heretics' CS:GO team following a brief period of shared time on G2.

Kio was announced by Heretics on Sunday, with the message in Spanish explaining that he will be representing the organisation for the next two years. He replaces promising talent Jérémy "jeyN" Nguyen who is continuing his studies, a master's degree at Sorbonne University in Paris.

Gaetan "JiNKZ" Jamin is the player Lucky replaces, with the organisation today stating that his addition 'closes the template with which [they] will seek to reach the top'.

This will not be the first time Kio and Lucky play together. Kio stood in for G2 during the ESL One Beijing online qualifier, with the team bootcamping at the G2 offices, before flying to ESL One New York in the final tournament for all-French G2. Despite kio previously stating that he wanted to join G2 and Vitality being interested in the two-time Major winner before picking up shox instead, he was not considered as G2 went international with CR4ZY duo Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač and Nemanja "nexa" Isaković.

While Lucky was benched after nine months on the team to make way for the Serbian-Bosnian pair, he has made a quick jump to Heretics compared to the lengthy downtime Dan "apEX" Madesclaire and Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt endured when they were removed from the active roster supposedly due to high buyouts of $800,000.

It is possible Heretics make yet another change in the near future, with reporter neL stating that Logan "LOGAN" Corti may be replaced by David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljević, who has been seen playing with Heretics in a number of qualifiers over the last month.
